Blog of the Week & Half Full Friday!

Well, I didn't get the job I interviewed for last week.  :(  But...after crying and feeling sorry for myself for awhile when I got the email, I got a call from a bank here in town asking for an interview!  First we did a phone interview which I thought went horrificly.  (Is that a word?!)  The guy kept asking for specific things I've done in certain situations and my mind was completely blank so I gave him very generic responses of things I thought he might like to hear.  Apparently it worked because he asked me to come in for a face to face interview!

The interview was this morning.  It went well, I thought!  They have one more candidate to interview this afternoon and then they'll make a final decision. 

Monday I have another appointment with the job assistance place.  So far they haven't been of any help at all but I'm thinking maybe they want to see my homework first before we go any further.  I don't know?!

So...  Eyegirl started a Half Full Friday feature which I decided to join in today!  She challenged her readers to keep a list of at least one thing that brought us happiness each day this past week.
I don't know that I'm gonna do this every week but I thought it'd be fun to do at least one!  If you'd like to join in, please head over to her blog and add your link to Mr. Linky so that others can see what made you happy this week!  And while you're there, check out the rest of her blog too! 

I'm happy my little chihuahuas are healthy and happy.

I'm happy my brother is back in my life again, even if only through email.

I'm happy my friend took me out to dinner at a new restaurant yesterday.

I'm happy I had another interview this week.

I'm happy it's been raining rather than snowing!

I'm happy that it's February, which means that we're that much closer to spring!
(Stole this one from Eyegirl because I really am happy we're that much closer to spring!)

I'm happy that I have a $76 credit on my heating bill.

I'm happy that I've been able to pay my mortgage every month even though I don't have a job.

And now on to...Blog of the Week!

Are you a fan of celebrity gossip?  Yes?  No?  Well, I can't afford to have a life at the moment so I tend to live vicariously through others for the time being.  And sometimes that means reading celebrity gossip to find out what else is happening in the world!  I've checked out a bunch of different celebrity gossip sites and this one is by far my favorite!

This site was started in November 2006.  I linked to it from another blog who gave it a shout-out and have been hooked from the very first post!

The guy who writes it is supposedly an Entertainment Lawyer who knows a ton of celebs and is up on all the latest gossip.  Each day (Mon - Fri) he gives at least one blind item and every Friday he gives four!  This is in addition to regular gossip he gives throughout the day.  The best part of this website???  Twice a year (Jan. 1st and July 4th) he acutally gives the answers to some of his blinds!

There has been quite a bit of speculation about whether or not the author really is an attorney, attorney-client priviledge, whether he's really a guy, etc., etc., etc.  There's even an anti-Crazy Days and Nights blog out there saying the whole thing is completely fake!  (Sorry, not gonna link it here.  You could probably google it if you really wanted to find it though.) 

What do I think?  I don't know and honestly, I don't really think I care all that much one way or the other.  I enjoy it purely for the entertainment value.  Some of the blinds that Entertainment Lawyer has posted have actually been proven to be true.  So I do think he must have some kind of Hollywood insider info. 

I don't comment there very often but it's a wonderful site to go to and pass the day away!  The other commenters are like a family towards each other.  Sometimes they fight but more often than not, they support and care about one another. 

As of this posting, today's blind isn't up yet so to give you a taste, here is yesterday's - CDAN Blind Gossip Item.  Check it out and enjoy!

I am so pleased you have got another interview, I really really hope you get this one.
Those are good things to be happy about, I try and think of 3 things a day that are good as it's easy to get swept up in what is going wrong in your life.
You have $76 credit on your heating bill, wow! I'm just hoping I don't have a fatal heart attack when I open the envelope of ours,lol.
Thanks for showing us another nice blog.

I also try to come up with at least 3 things about each day that I'm grateful for! I can usually come up with more.

I only have the $76 heating bill credit because I'm low income and asked for it.

Dear Sprinkles
I just popped in to say thank you for your visits, comments and uplifting thoughts. It is very sweet of you and I appreciate it immensely.
I know I don't know you, but I've had a moment to look at your blogs and what I like is that you are 'authentic' - a trait which I value remind me of a short anecdote (hope you don't mind)...
Do you know what a firefly is? Well these little creatures navigate purely by light. They have a flourescent part of their tiny body that attracts their partners and keeps them together as a group. Unfortunately with urban development, fireflies are becoming a threatened species. I have been extremely empathetic and fond of them throughout my life.
Why am I telling you this...
well you remind me of a firefly!
You were looking for an Avatar - what about this!?
I just want to send love and good, positive wishes to you. I hope that you will find a job soon and that your life will become 'lit up' with goodwill.
Take care and keep the chin up.
