“Freedom is Just Another Word...”

After some serious consideration, the hiring manager has decided to pursue some other candidates for the role you interviewed for recently. As a result, I'm going to carefully place your resume back into the database for all of the recruiters and hiring managers to view and consider for other roles within [somewhere].Com. I want to thank you for taking time out to speak with us and hope that you will continue to be interested in our opportunities. We wish you well in your pursuit of a new position and thank you for your continued interest in our company.

You know, if I enjoyed rejection, the past couple of years would have the best times of my life.

On a completely unrelated note, here are two songs by the Mermen. The first doesn't seem to have a name other than New Song and the second is the verbose yet wonderfully named With No Definite Future And No Purpose Other Than To Prevail Somehow. They are from live shows so no copyrights were harmed in the making of the mp3 files. Download guilt free. I'll leave them up for a few days.

The World's Best Ketchup

Howard Moskowitz, a man with a vision, a passion, and a bottle of mushed up tomatoes. The fascinating story of the Grey Poupon of the ketchup world. No, really — fascinating.

At The Movies

I went to see Garden State with my brother the other week. Included with my ticket was a coupon. If I bought $2.00 worth of popcorn and soda for $9.00 they would sell me a 75¢ box of Milk Duds for only $1. The movie was very good and the Milk Duds were pretty yummy too.
