Feeling the Love…

The worst part about not blogging as often as I used to is that sometimes I think about something I want to post about – but by the time I have a chance to focus and write, I forget what I was going to say. That doesn’t mean the topic was trivial – not at all. It means that somewhere along the way I was sidetracked and just didn’t write about it.

Monday night, Elaine informed me that I have been nominated for a 2004 Bloggie! Tuesday morning when I checked my e-mail, there was the official notification, along with an e-mail from Jenn, pointing out that I was nominated in the “Best Programming of a Blog” category – up against ScriptyGoddess! I really don’t feel worthy in Scripty’s company, especially since most of the tweaks on my site are either things found on Scripty or code that Jenn wrote and implemented for me! (With the exception of my recent commenter code that Ste wrote for me.) There are a lot of things that I have done myself, but still – you have to admit that it’s ironic. I am thrilled and honored to be nominated though – what a treat! Wheee! Thank you, thank you to everyone that nominated me!

Speaking of which, I don’t suppose you could mail me a copy of that script again. I forgot to back it up when I was moving files from my Windows computer to my new Mac a few months ago, and I’d like to revise it and post it for other people to use. 😉 Congratulations on the nomination, btw – that’s pretty exciting. 😉

Feeling the Love…

Lately, the spam titles have been getting more and more catchy. I’m just feeling the love every time I look through my mailbox! Here are just a few of my REAL spam e-mail subject lines…

– I need someone now, please come have your way with me
– How are you doing
– You wrote a letter to me. Who are you?
– Where have you been?
– I know you like me.
– I love you, please call…

I mean, can’t you just feel the love? Have you been getting lots of loving in your e-mail too?

Here’s what got filtered out for me in the last few days:

– Where were you the other day?
– I think you are handsome!
– Give Me Some. Get a Huge One.
– u look better
– Flat Hose ? Special Low Price!

Oh wait, I think I misread that last one.

I always used to joke that if I used enough of the male enhancement ones I could eliminate my need to ever date again! But then again, that would be quite creepy… it just amuses me to get those when I’m a female!

i’m obviously more important than you… i get emails from former world leaders almost every day… you know, the ones telling me they’ll give me X amount of money for helping them transfer their money over (or something like that).

Feeling the Love…

Heather commented the other day on reasons to love the Internet. I’ve always agreed with that sentiment, but do tonight probably more than ever. I don’t have time to write everyone back personally yet – I have to work on my resume! – but I will be over the next few days. Meanwhile I just want to take a moment to say thank you to everyone for your kind words and encouragement. It has helped to remind me of all the positive things in the world, and the power of the human connection.

I had a *fantastic* conversation with ed k. about the legal world and the job I had for 4 years with one of the top 10 law firms in the nation. (Well, at the time … not sure if they still are.) He’s a man in the know about the field and the industry and has given me some great leads – so hopefully I’ll have even more interviews as the week goes on. It’s been 3 years, and some things have changed out there – but I learn new software at a speedy pace, so I’m not worried. Plus if I need training, I’ll just head to Dallas and learn from the master!

Off to type up my resume so I can send it off. I’ll keep you guys posted!

Best of luck Christine! I’m going to be looking to switch jobs after the first of the year so I’ll be keeping a close eye on how your search goes to get an idea of the tech job market! 🙂

Seriously though, this is an opportunity for you to branch into something new and exciting, I hope this opportunity turns out to be something even better than you can imagine right now!

you know, now would be the perfect time for us to up for TAR!!
