Good Afternoon Happy Birthday Dad

Hi all,
Christmas is creeping up on us at lightening speed! I have brought myself a worldwide voltage travel hair blow drier as a present, at Argos (this funny store, you look through a catalog to buy what you want and then you get it in 5 minutes! all the stuff is just in the back. so everything is cheeper because the store doesn't have to display anything).......... And I bought this gray woll dress shirt thingy at Portobello Market yesterday in Notting Hill. LOL ah yes the framiliar English names, :) hugh grant anyone. The market specializes in antiques and jewlery. They had like old cricket and footballs and things, golf clubs, tennis racquets... I bought an old key. The guy said it was from around the 1840's..but whos knows if he knows but I love it, and I have always wanted one of those fancy keys. It can be my lucky key.

Stranger Than Fiction wasn't as good as I thought it would be, but it was good. I didn't try the popcorn. I had Domino's Pizza yesterday, it was not very good :) just like at home. I eat way too many cookies and I have to get myself under control!!! I need mom to tell me to be good!!! LOL

ps, those of you that do not have directwest address listings which i can sleuth out online, email me your addresses! or you will never get a postcard :)!!!! Yes this is a threat

talk to you soon

Just a Sunday afternoon at the Office

Hi all, I enabled anonymous comments, so comment your little hearts out!

I got my first temping job this Friday. It ends today I think (they are very unorganized) and I was working at the ROC recruitment office (www.roc.co.uk) helping do short interviews for Selfridges (www.selfridges.com) Christmas help and data entry of the the people's detail on Olioffice (it kind looks like prohunt!!) .... That was friday and saturday. Today I am alone in the office, answering phones, while everyone else is over at Selfridges organizing people. It is absolutely nuts how many temps the store needed. something like 250. and as usual everything was left until last minute! :) I would feel bad for not doing anything right now, except that I haven't anymore CVs to entry and they never told me anything else to do. lol so here I am :) Maning an 80 person office by myself. So i probably interviewed over 30 people in 2 days. I was a little nervous at first, but I tried to jump right into it. So go me!!! anyways. At least I have made a bit of money :)
