A new new phone

I am writing from my second new phone of the month. I turned my last phone, the Samsung Moment, in to Sprint for a full refund. Then I bought this Motorola Cliq from Tmobile. My dad always said that Motorola phones get better service out here and he is right. I do get pretty good service with this phone.

In other news, I attempted to watch Transylmania last night. It was terrible and we had it off in the first two minutes of the show. It made Scary Movie look good. After that I put in Nobel Son. It was dark, bloody and not very good. I recommend skipping both.

Glee, you have disappointed me

So I am watching Glee... yes, I watch Glee. And normally I am not ashamed of that but lately.... Maybe it is the Lady Gaga aspect of this show or the Kiss counterpoint. It could also be the homophobia angle. Either way this episode has not been enjoyable. Usually I am laughing and enjoying it despite the many songs of torture. Most songs are not my cup of tea but I usually persevere.

It could be that this episode is overly dramatic. It might be that it is attempting to be serious for once. The show is tackling a lot of issues. Rachel finds her mom, Finn freaks out about moving in with Kurt, two jocks, who are hardly (if ever) in the show, are being homophobic, and the goth girl is searching for a new identity.

Of course it is none of that. It is actually the absence of Jane Lynch's character, cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester. She is the reason this show is good. Glee! Listen up! Sue Sylvester must be in every show and if she is not you must personally call me so I can skip it.

That being said there was a funny in the last 3 minutes. Apparently the principal believes vampires are real. So I laughed once. Bring Sue back!

At the hair salon.

I am sitting at the Perfect Look Salon in Roseburg. I have needed a hair cut for a few weeks and I finally made it in today. Of course I am waiting. I think life is just a series of waiting for things. Like I am waiting to become employed. Before that I was waiting to be licensed. Waiting is lame.

I have a mound of applications to fill out. I love filling out applications almost as much as going to the dentist. Just hire me... :)

job fairs.....

Do you ever think that job fairs exist to make you depressed? This job fair was tiny and had a huge throng of people in line to "register" Lame!

Phoenix.... so far.

I am enjoying my visit to Phoenix. The main reason I came down was for an educator job fair on Saturday. Originally I had been debating when to fly out and finally opted to stay through the following week. Staying the extra time seemed fortuitous when I was granted an interview. Since I am here looking for work it seemed like a good idea to also go to another job fair with my sister. Who knows what might come about.

The new phone......

I recently got a new phone from Sprint. It is the Samsung Moment with Google. I love this phone! It does a lot of stuff including letting me post to my blog. I can play music through Pandora and did so on the way back from Portland last weekend. The phones slide out qwerty keyboard is awesome and makes texting and web surfing easy.

I am sure you all knew there is a 'but' coming. The issue is the service. It is decent in the town of Roseburg, pretty good along the I5 corridor, and wonderful in Portland. But it sucks a big one at my dadks house. The reason I got the phone was the crappy service from T-Mobile at my dad's place. Which means I currently have crappy service from two national providers. The good news is I can return the phone within 30 days and receive a full refund. The bad news is I have to get rid of this phone.....

I don't know how many of you have seen the commercial for the new Robin Hood movie but it has caught my eye. I guess telling a totally different story from all known stories is originality and not just theft of a well known and beloved hero. I mean... why not? I have a new cartoon coming out called Spongebob and it will tell the story of how he became a sponge. Then I have a new movie coming out called Huck. That is a story about Huckleberry Finn about 30 years after the original story. Mainly he sits around in his underwear and watches football but it gets interesting when the electric company turns off his lights.

Of course this is not the main reason I am writing. I have become irritated by the way the evil king dude says outlaw in the commercial. Why must this guy yell the word outlaw? Does yelling make it mean more? I think Hollywood has decided that yelling makes it have more meaning. I do not think that Hollywood allows someone to calmly say "I declare him an OUTLAW!" Apparently Hollywood won't even let me write it without yelling it.

Mobile blogging.

I am blogging with my new phone! This phone totally rocks! I had a busy Friday that involved interviewing for a job in Portland. I spent the night there and enjoyed eating at my favorite Vietnamese place, Pho Huy. It was as good as I remember and well worth the drive from my hotel. If you are near the Clackamas mall you should go. I had a beer at Ram Brewing after that. It was a good trip but a little too spendy to do solo.
