And So We Wait

Yesterday while at Disneyland, Paul received a call from Dave, one of the men with whom he interviewed on Wednesday.  (Incidentally, the one whom Paul was sure was the least likely to be in Team Paul, but a straight shooter and a decent guy nonetheless.)  Dave, hearing the background noise, told Paul to call him […]

The Weekend Began on Wednesday

Supermom awoke on Wednesday morning and decided to go to California for Spring Break.  By the time she called me at noon they were already in Flagstaff.  She and her three children were on the road and on track to make it out to LA in one day, without the help of her husband.  Yes, […]

The Audacity of Hope

During one of our previous job searches I became enamoured with a particular job opportunity.  It was by far the best thing available at the time and we had an in-company contact.  Unfortunately it fell through; we found out that they were interviewing Paul for a management position for which he wasn’t qualified when all […]
