Ok, so it turns out I may have been a little anxious with my post yesterday. I have always had that tendency – I get so excited about something that I brag about it and then it doesn’t happen. I’ve interviewed for some cool jobs in my life. Not a big deal for most people, except my big ass mouth went around telling people about how great the interviews went and how perfect I would be for the gig… you see where this is going right? I didn’t get the job, then for the next few months whenever I’d bump into someone I had bragged to they would ask me how the new job was going. Man I can be a real jackass sometimes.
So this sort of thing may have happened yesterday. I got a little excited about a potential job opportunity that just became available today and I thought I had as good of a chance of landing the job as anyone else so I started the difficult process of saying goodbye to all my Simpletons, which you can see here.
The job opening was the one being vacated by Oprah Winfrey. If you’re some kind of moron and haven’t heard of her, she has had a big time talk show on national TV for the last 25 years and that show came to an end yesterday. I wasn’t aware of anyone being announced as the NEW Oprah so I threw my virtual hat into the ring.
Unfortunately I have been told they are looking for someone with actual TV experience. So that tape I sent them interviewing my neighbor about his cat apparently didn’t cut it. WTF?
Long story short…. there is a silver lining to this whole disappointment. It looks like I am not going anywhere.
At work this afternoon we have an all staff bowling outing (we do a lot of these kind of things, it’s basically an excuse to drink and NOT work) so maybe I’ll have some stories to tell about that. I am not much of a bowler but I am a good bullshitter… so people at work think I am a good bowler.
We’ll see how that turns out.
