I've had to chat my colleague saying he should feel free to shorten the interview...

IWLTS I feel quite cheated. I love your artwork but assumed you paint it. To find out you do it all on your computer is a bit of a disappointment.
Is it not just another medium though? It’s not easy to make something look good enough on a computer that you thought they’d hand painted/drawn it?

What a spectacular interviewee, Wendy. I hope it was recorded as a how not to do an interview!

Well, yes, and either way she’s talented but I just had visions of her sitting out with her easel and paints...

That interviewee must not get the job. Stupid arse. If he doesn’t follow rules when lives are at stake he’s unlikely to follow work rules, no?

People have very strange ideas about how to market themselves in interviews :lol:

I once ran a workshop about employment skills (across the university, so students from all sorts of sectors came along). One bloke insisted on putting 'giving blood' as one of his interests, and someone else had 'I have an interest in witchcraft' as part of her personal statement. They both removed them during the workshop, but I am 100% certain they would have put them back in as soon as they got a chance.

I know. I mean it's public spirited and all that, but doing it as an interest?

Witchcraft! :lol: I would have taken that lady on principle.

Wendy, that bloke is great. Please give him a job, if for no other reason than to fill up this thread with endless gems.

iwlts: Fucking rain, would ya?

I've postponed a bbq we were meant to be having this evening because the weather was a bit shite. But now it's improved a lot, but I really don't feel like hosting anymore.

I might go outside and do a rain dance. :))

Did it rain? It really annoys me when you have to cancel for weather and then it turns out ok.

IWLTS stop buying fucking horses! In 3 months you'll flog it because it's too much money and time.

I've known this woman 4ish years and this must be her 3rd or 4th horse.

Except that sometimes cancelling is quite nice, especially if you're the host and it leaves you with a nice tidy house and lots of food :look:

I really really want to say fuck off adulthood. This year has been full of shitty things with financial sorry and seeing my son's family breakdown and now coronavirus, and now it has taken a nosedive with some health news about someone who is very dear to me (cancer - of course it's fucking cancer, and even best case scenario the treatment will be life changing). I miss being 15 years younger and without a care in the world.

I'm sorry, Heebie, that all sounds rather shit. You poor sausage. I hope your friend/relative can be treated quickly.

It rained just enough to justify canceling, and then we had it yesterday instead and it was lovely, so all good.
