I'm not the first, and I certainly won't be the last, but I just got dissed by a certain Television Judge Whose Name Shall Not Be Mentioned.
See, today I was called in for a second interview for a long-term temp job with him as his assistant. I had a bad feeling about the job already: the first interview involved an HOUR LONG written test about business practices, including how to sell shoes and how to run a corporation. That was about three weeks ago and I was relieved to think that I was not chosen. Today, I was called in to meet him in person. I was assured by his colleagues again and again that I was the first choice for the job (wasn't thrilled about that, but ok).
So he comes out, I meet him, we go into his office. He asks what experience I have, and I tell him I've worked at Warner Bros for about four and a half years, blah blah blah. He asks me what I know about the job. I say, "well, I understand you're looking for an assistant to help around the office. I'd like to hear from you what the specifics are and what you need." Totally genial, just curious what they're looking for. He stands up, reaches his hand out to me, and says, "OK, the interview is over. Get out." I was sort of confused. "I'm sorry?" says I. "Get out." says he. "Er...is this a joke?" "No joke. I asked YOU a question, I didn't ask you to ask ME a question." And...SLAM. The door crashes behind me.
I was completely confused. I said to his colleague, "he's a very angry man, isn't he?" The colleague says, all bright and sunny, "How'd it go??" I said, "Um. He just kicked me out." And then the colleague went into this big fluster about how he'll fix it and everything will be ok, and I found myself saying, very firmly, "No. I'm not interested." So I was proud of myself for that. What a psycho!
And I get a good story out of it, so whatever.
Thanksgiving was really, really beautiful. Our chosen family joined us and we had a really lovely day. Everything just went right. I deeply thank you all who were there. The subsequent days of turkey eating culminated in the cooking of a turkey pot pie that, if I do say so myself, put all previous ventures TO SHAME. However, at that point, I was so burned out on turkey that I could barely lift the fork to my mouth. Ah, the holidays.
If any of you have purchased or listened to our new album and have something to say about it, we'd love it if you could write a short reveiw on our CDBaby and Amazon pages. For everyone who has given us such wonderful feedback, we thank you deeply and desperately.
Now get out.
You are KIDDING ME! This almost sounds like a Saturday Night Live sketch. What an asshole! Well, I guess it proves that we should always trust our gut, but, if we don't....we will always get a kickass story!

A HA HA HA HA HA~!! (I'm sorry, but I find this incredibly funny.)
I guess, at least, problem solved...?

What an asshat!!
I have been listening to the album, and jotting down what I think for each song as I listen to them properly. I think this is a huge leap forward for you guys -- your voice has evolved (not improved so much (I wouldn't say it ever needed improvement), but . . . expanded, maybe?) since Grumpy Ghost, and it's impressive. I am very, very much enjoying it, and the moment I get a break, I'll post what I'm thinking.
Really, what an absolute knobhead! Maure | Homepage | 12.01.05 - 6:46 pm | #
That is tremendously amusing. Sounds like an excellent piece for the stage... tifanie | 12.02.05 - 9:24 am | #
Lame-o. You are so much better off without dealing with that crap-fest every day. Mary | 12.02.05 - 4:59 pm | #
