OMIGAWD, is it really Friday?  I thought it was Thursday or something.

Funny, being unemployed, I lose track of the day of the week.  But, by golly, I know the date, and if it's anywhere near time to claim my weeks, I'm on it.

Ran into the boss of the division I'm supposedly going to work for some far off day.  Turns out, not only is the contract fouled up, they have to re-bid it.  But, if I'm still available come mid-December, by golly, I've got a job.

Bidding process, meet glacier.  Glacier, meet bidding process.  You have much in common.

Speaking of glaciers and icebergs, that's pretty much the dealbreaker to my Titanic dreams of being re-employed in the near future.

On the bright side, I had an interview today, thanks to [livejournal.com profile] titos2cents.  I think it went well.  Here's to hoping! 

Was a wreck leaving the house.  Couldn't find my car keys.  Don't have a printer attached to the home network at the moment, so I had the map to the interview location loaded on my Tablet PC, but Adobe Reader decided to go kaploooey as I was leaving, so I had to reboot and reload the map.  Couldn't find a hair brush.  Couldn't figure out what to wear.  Came to the conclusion that if I'm going to be unemployed, I'm hitting the gym.  I can't fit into my interviewing suits without looking like a stuffed sausage.  Wore basic black instead ("It's SLIMMING!").  Realized I was about to go to a military base with expired tags.  FINALLY put my new license plate on.  (My b'day was in September, got my new tag yesterday, so been riding around with expired car tag for over a month.)

Went to my co-worker's going away luncheon at a casual place on the water.  That was a nice mellow time.  We were out there for a couple of hours, shooting the breeze.  There was a cold breeze coming off the water, but they had heaters everywhere, so it was comfortable.  There's a lot attractive about the boating life.  :)

Thought this was interesting.  Having now spent the majority of my life in the Deep South, I *know* I've gotten some of the drawl and I drop "ya'll's" like it's second nature.  But I guess when you get down to straight pronunciation, I'm still California.

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Midland

"You have a Midland accent" is just another way of saying "you don't have an accent."  You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas.  You have a good voice for TV and radio.
