I was actually meaning to post about dinner last night. A BUFFET ... we don't have "regular" buffet restaurants in Chicago ... the real estate is too pricey (heck, I spoke with a regional manager for Culvers and he said they couldn't afford to open up a place in Chicago!), so I rarely get a chance to eat at one. Last night, however, we ate at a Ryan's (http://ryans.com), which means I over-stuffed myself. I do love a buffet. Probably a good thing that there's none handy to us back home!
I'm having a hard time going into "vacation mode" since everything we do or eat is spending money that has no back-up ... the thing I hate most about the "job search" thing is that it's pretty much 24/7 without a break ... until you're hired and sitting in that desk, there is nothing but digging and digging and digging, with 99.9% of it being endless frustration, disappointment, and dread. An example was this phone interview I had on Monday ... the guy wanted me to send him some samples, but I've not been able to get him to respond to ANY e-mails (I sent him one asking if his main e-mail could take an 11mb file, one to send that stuff, and one to see if it had come through), which I suspect is a bad sign (which is too bad, as I was very excited about that job).
Oh, well ... we're going over to the Indiana Dunes today, and I'm going to try to not obsess over sending out resumes, but I wish to all that's Holy that I could get a decent job sometime very very soon.
