The Artist has finished his first week of college, and he’s loving it. I offered to give him a ride the first week, but he wanted to take the bus from day one. He wants to be as self-sufficient as possible. I can relate to that.
Yesterday I went in to Kelly (a temp agency, for those outside the US) and took a bunch of their skill assessment tests. They might have a bookkeeping job for me that uses Quickbooks, but I took all the tests they were willing to give me. I figured if I did poorly on them I just wouldn’t get jobs involving those skills. But I did reasonably well on all of them (and very well on some).
The Kelly rep gave me all the tax forms and such to fill out, and an employee handbook to look over. I take this as a good sign. Even if I don’t get this Quickbooks job, they might be able to find me something else. I hope.
Michelle Bachman, republican and champion of the religious right, has declared her position against the national health care proposal:
“That’s why people need to continue to go to the town halls, continue to melt the phone lines of their liberal members of Congress,” said Bachmann, “and let them know, under no certain circumstances will I give the government control over my body and my health care decisions.”
…so, does this mean she’s pro-choice now?
