Had my second interview yesterday for the HR Director position. It went pretty well. The CEO seems to dig me. But now she is going on vacation until the day after Labor Day, so I won't hear anything till at least then. Bah. But I guess its good in a way because it gives me time to interview for some contract recruitment positions and then figure out what exactly I want to do.
------------
I really liked Deanna's song that she wrote and performed on Rockstar INXS, but I wasn't surprised that she was sent home. Poor Ty, though. He seems devastated every time he is in the bottom three, especially when he feels like he did a good job. He is so emotional. Although last night, they all kind of fell apart when Deanna was told she was leaving. Mig was a mess. They were all crying. Jordis was right; based on her performance she deserved to be the one sent home. Hub thinks she is now throwing the competition so she DOESN'T win. I think maybe she got a little overconfident and felt she didn't have to work as hard.
------------
Princess has gone cold-turkey without Dora. She is totally uninterested. Now, its all about Blue's Clues. She is even worse with Blue than she ws with Dora. Seriously, she wakes up, I go into her room to get her, and the very first thing she says is "Watcha Blue". And then it becomes her mantra until I put the damn thing on. My BIL babysat for her yesterday and I was gone for about 2 hours for my interview. When I came home, Blue was on. I said, "Ah, we're watcha Blue?" He said, "Yep this is Blue's second run since I got here." The chick is addicted.

oooh, killer of a wait, huh?

Danielle said...

my nephew is obsessed with blues clues! and the wiggles. i got him the wiggles guitar and keyboard. he's in heaven.

Danielle said...

I love rockstar INXS and Jordis better start working, it is like she is not taking it seriously, she thinks she doesnt have to work and she is not gonna win, sh is letting it go!

Guppyman said...

I disagreed with ourbandINXS last night... Of the bottom three, Proud Mary should have gone home...

But Marty made me feel like i might actually be able to listen to INXS... he rocked on that!

Charlie Mc said...

at least sh'e not a Barney fan.....

Molly said...

I have to agree as far as kids programs go Blue's Clue's is not such a bad one to be hooked on.

Good luck with the job, I hate waiting, but at least you know WHY you are waiting and it gives you time to figure things out.

Patsy Darling said...

I think I hate Blue more than Dora, thank god diddy is the only child I have and he's past all that. Oh and as fancy HR director can you get best pal Patsy a job I hate mine more than ever.

mrsmogul said...

I see this weeks INXS show on Sunday nights. I like Mig, but how is he a mess? Can;t wait to find out!

Sleeping Mommy said...

Be thankful it's not the Doodlebops.

Dear God in heaven save me.

I feel it's best to have a variety of addictions. heh

PresentStorm said...

I love Jordis but I totally agree she got overly confident ..she should have been able to tell she SUCKED at that song the first time she tried it ...Yikes it was horrific ..I was plugging ,my ears it was that bad ..Marty kicked some ass ..I love him too!!

and is it me or are these word verifications getting longer and longer?

InterstellarLass said...

Oh, I hate waiting that long to hear something!

I am sooo glad we are out of the kiddie shows. We just missed the Wiggles. Dora and Blue were staples in our house though.

Zee said...

Yikes! That is a long wait.

Good luck!

Arethusa said...

I remember when my little cousin adored Dora Dora and Blues Clues. Having had to deal with Barney on babysitting jobs I was extremely grateful for my cousin's tastes.

Dawn said...

Oh we love blues clues over here too. but Dora is still numero uno.

Carol (Smiles and Laughter) said...

How cruel to make you wait that long. Hope it turns out the way you want it to!

I had never heard of Rockstar INXS until yesterday and now that's all I'm hearing. I need to get out more.

Marie said...

Good luck with the waiting and other interviews! It sounds promising overall.

Better Safe Than Sorry said...

my younger two used to watch blue clues, can't believe it's still on.
keeping my fingers crossed for you until the long weekend, positive thoughts can make it happen!

Hey girl, thanks for stopping by my blog! I wanna see this 80's Jersey hair, please?
I swear I had some witty comment while reading your post till I got to blues clues and then I lost it. I HATE that new guy, hes an idiot. They need to bring Steve back. Heeheee, sorry but have you ever seen Steve in a sleeveless??? You have NO IDEA what was under those long green and white sleeves girlfriend....can you spell...
R-I-P-P-E-D????? Heehee, if ya wanna see, lemme know and Ill see if I can dig up the pic, hes actually semi-hot.
(yes you fantasize about hotties in kids shows after thats all you watch for a few years =P)

Twist of Kate said...

My kids were way into Blue back in the day...back when it was Steve and not Joe. Sometimes now, I catch them watching it...dorks! :) Keep on keeping us posted with the job search, I got mine, you gotta get yours! :)

soapbox.SUPERSTAR said...

At least its not Teletubbies!

MommaK said...

Hey, I love teletubbies! "Uh-oh!"

We used to love Blue but got weird out when Steve was morphed into Joe. It was too weird for us and we started watching something else.

Now its animal planet all the time!

Holly said...

I feel for Sleeping Mommy... we caught a few episodes of DoodleBops in our motel room on vacation, while we got ready in morning. I would lose my mind if my kids were into that show!

Dora is recently "out" here too. Something I never thought I'd see! Blues was a cool thing for a brief while. Now the boys like Rugrats. I don't really care for them, but they seem mostly harmless. Oh, and we have a Wiggles-Redux going on too. The bigger boy used to be sick of them, but now seems interested again.

INXS: Mig fits the band. End of story. He needs to win. Marty is too dark and eery - he belongs in a totally different kind of band. I like him - but he is just not INXS. Jordis is great, but she belongs in a grunge band, or more of a hard-rocking band. Ty has a great voice, and I think he could pull INXS off, but he might also be better suited to some different type of band. JD is a parasite. Susie is OK, good voice, but still doesn't fit INXS in my opinion....

Carol said...

Hi True Jersey Girl,
I've never had the pleasure of watching Dora or Blue Clue's. My kids were into Barney and Hush Puppy.
Remember Friendly Friday!

tommy said...

I like Blue

Curator said...

Good luck on the gig, that would be a nice post-labour day surprise.

TGIF TJG.

Nino the Mindboggler said...

LMAO... Marni is ALL ABOUT Blue... gave up Dora almost immediately (well, she still likes here but ADORES Blue!).

Damn, I can't figure out my kids at all!

trine said...

isn't the bloke on blue english? i remember thinking "god what DO YOU tell your friends that you do for a living..."

unfortunately (?) we don't get blue here anymore...

Evey said...

Good luck with the job stuff.

maxandzoesmom said...

i like ty's voice and think he is a good performer, but i can't see him as the lead singer of inxs.

jordis is awesome, but i think her talent would be wasted as the lead singer of inxs (why would she want to hang out with those old farts anyway?)

i'm rooting for mig. i think he would fit the band perfectly.

marty is ok, but he takes himself way too seriously
