Re: More Stuff

Well, if this latest place I've applied to doesn't give me a call, a friend gave me a lead on a way to make it much easier to get a job. I'm kinda leery about unions, but apparently there's one that could help me get into the trade.

Re: March 12, 2020 (aka COVID-19 thread)

Yup. Just about everything Atomic said, I've been repeating. The US has a population of around 330 million people, and people are getting all political about how the US has more reported cases. I think the US is in the top five countries for largest populations, and of those with more people, everyo...

Re: More Stuff

I found another place hiring for apprentice electricians, this time in Little Rock instead of Conway. Just sent an application to them just a little while ago. I dunno if that sort of job would be considered essential right now and therefore they'd be able to work with all the shutdowns, but they've...

Re: More Stuff

Well, I was nervous as hell. There were three people conducting the interview, and that was the first time I've ever had more than one interviewer. According to the sign in sheet, I was the third person that day from Staffmark, unless I didn't notice others on the previous page. They didn't say righ...

Yeah, the worse the bad news sounds, the more people will try to pay attention to the news.

Has anyone started a betting pool regarding how long the chow mein strain is going to be a big issue?

Re: More Stuff

I got a job interview on Monday, for a position as a forklift driver. Hopefully I get the job, but I'm not too sure about my chances, given that I haven't operated such a lift in about four and a half years.

Re: Scary Part 2020-03-11

Something I just thought of: when Digit was first transformed, it was said somewhere that she had the body of a 20yo. Weren't her breasts smaller back then? But then, most of that volume is adipose tissue, and the amount can still change... (Damn it... now I just had a variation of the Spiderman the...

Re: More Stuff

I found out that someone in my graduating class died Thursday. I don't know what happened, though. Someone from my class shared a post to the class's Facebook page from one of his relatives, and in it they said they had learned from the Navy of his passing. I'd known the guy since we were in 5th gra...

Darn. I was thinking this new person was, like... a prototype of what Castela is. She looks similar, at least.

Re: Stay Away 2020-02-28

So her face splits open, and I'm thinking that those spikes may be vines or roots that she's making shoot up from the ground like that. I wonder if the face thing is normal for her, or if she chose to hold that appearance.

Re: More Stuff

Well, given that I haven't been contacted about the position that opened more than a month ago, I'm going to guess that either they've found someone with more experience and gave them the job, or they don't need it filled quite so badly. So I'm just going to look into other apprentice positions, sin...

Re: More Stuff

Well, maybe not as soon as I'd hoped. I didn't get a call, so tomorrow I'm going to look up other places that are looking for apprentice electricians. Hell, I might even look at other trades, as well. If I don't get a call Monday, I'll just apply to one of the other places.

Re: Not Too Lonely 2020-02-19

uh oh Yup. The plot plottens. This just reeks of mischief-to-be-made, with a side of havoc and a hefty dash of we-knew-that-pooch-weren't-natural. I think it's pretty obvious that Dietzel isn't your average dog, as he's almost certainly older than Castela. I'm not sure how much, but a dog his age w...

Re: More Stuff

Yup! I'm also going to make sure that any gloves or any tools that are meant to come into contact with live wires will not stay somewhere to get cold, so as to avoid having condensation building up inside the housing.

Re: More Stuff

Well, I got ahold of a company that needs an apprentice electrician, and apparently all I had to do was send in my resume and phone number.

Hopefully I can get the job.

Re: Having Trouble 2020-02-10

A good part of the concern is the other party's reaction could be unfavorable, and simply discussing something could lead to a fight.

Re: Welcome to Winter

We had a little bit of snow the other day, but it melted on contact with the ground... Winter is almost always a soggy affair in Arkansas, unfortunately.
