    Really? You got nailed with anti-spam? Interesting!

    re: midwest question. It’s not the snow (cuz lots of people like colorodo). It’s the lack of oceans and/or mountains. My humble opinion is that one has to be driving distance to at least one of these two landscapes for a place to be habitable for an extended period of time. The great lakes can fill part of that void which makes a city like chicago an exception to the rule.

    Do you think it was blog sabotage? Someone once submitted my blog as a porn site that took a while to reverse. Actually it took me some time to figure out why my blog was being firewall blocked by a lot of sites in the first place. I suspect it was that rental house guy I posted a bad review on.

    Heh–I’m unemployed and I’m baking right now! Wait, there goes the timer!

    We also usually apply for unemployment benefits. We also go to workshops on how to make a proper resume, etc. And we do other stuff we never used to have time for like getting enough exercise and making the bed. Some people also go into a deep depression because it’s clear that no one wants them. For example, I’ve been job hunting for three months and have not had one single interview. A friend who was laid off the same time as I started looking is already in California working at his new Google job. (I don’t have any resulting self-esteem problems myself, but mom and plenty of other awesome people have had trouble.)

    Today I’m going to a session where we bring our actual resumes and critique each other’s. Hopefully three people will say, “Duh, of course you’re not getting any interviews with THIS on your resume!” and then I can remove that. Probably I’ll just fix a bunch of other people’s spelling and grammar.

    I think vertical blinds are still around. And so are typos.
