    A difficult call came in today. I had two options open as far as what my first job would be, and the previous successful conclusion of the driving test for the local operation pretty much secured it for me. I knew I'd have to end consideration of the second offer eventually, but that choice was thrust upon me with a sudden phone call. It was the recruiter who operates his own service of coordinating employees with employers. It caught me off guard, and the person who called didn't make the conversation ...

    In celebration of this being my 1000th blog post on this board, I shall do absolutely nothing different other than make that acknowledgement.

    I'm glad that I'm able to get these training modules done online. W4 and I9 are submitted. The process is well underway.

    There's another job offer that came up about something related to a new utility company looking for "energetic people" in an exciting field and other language which usually accompanies fly-by-night ...

    The road test for the employer was today. Shifting gears in a truck that I've never driven took some getting used to, and finding reverse seemed to be rather troublesome. I think I might have rubbed a curb on the right turn returning to the facility. I even stalled out once on the road, and I had a lot of starts from stops that rocked the hell out of the truck. Still, despite all of the problems, I managed to show enough competency at the task that they were willing to take me on to the next steps ...

    Road test with the company is indeed scheduled for 9AM tomorrow. The location is 20 miles away and would take a half hour's drive to get there in normal conditions, which means that I should leave here no later than 8AM.

    I'll need to find some time to visit the government office to get my Hazmat authorization procedures underway, though I probably won't have time to do that until tomorrow. Studying for the written test is proving to be a bit of a pain, as answers among the practice ...

    It's 2PM and I'm standing on the salesfloor and doing some busywork because it's the only place I could be doing something without being in someone else's way in the backroom or taking away someone's work to do. I'm using a different type of handheld computer because the normal style units were all taken at the start of the day. I'm standing there and tediously poking the screen just to have the ALT key be pressed as a I press a function key so that I can confirm the location of some product that ...

    My Dad had a medical procedure this Friday which was enough to have him sidelined from then until now and probably into the next few days. When I called home after dinner today to see if anything was going on for the Hallmark, I was told by Mom that he was already in bed. We agreed for me to be notified when he woke up. My Dad did call a few hours later, but did so to inform me that my Mom was in the hospital. She mentioned in the earlier call that she was about to do some yardwork, and apparently ...

    I give credit to DarthPayne of our insulated and isolated chat channel for helping me see some light on something today.

    For whatever reason (and completely unrelated to the conversation that was ongoing otherwise) he listed the Atari ST game "Time Bandit" as one of his Top 5 games of all time. I can't say I heard of it before, so I went over to trusty Youtube to provide an example of it. From watching one clip to another, the main thing I'm seeing is that the player never ...

    Wake up to the phone with a job offer in response to something that I had submitted somewhere in the middle of the night. Local route, low pay, but they don't need me to have had a certificate of completion from the driving school. As it turns out, there are actually only a small handful of employers who are willing to hire people who have the license without having at least completed a driving school. Out of context, that certainly doesn't seem unreasonable, but many of these same places have their ...

    Let's see how CDL Hunter works out for me. In the meantime, I should see about hopping over to FedEx Freight and submitting an application there, on top of whatever else comes into my mailbox now. I suppose I should make adjustments on Monster and CareerBuilder too, technically.

    Songs felt good today. Having a night with 14 hours of sleep and a drink of espresso with Pepsi right before the session makes all the difference. It's still impossible to get any worthwhile random chart for ...

    Mission complete. Today marks the second time that I have passed all tests necessary to acquire a CDL. The morning routine at the DMV includes turning on the radio over the speakers within the facility, and it's tuned to the local oldies rock station. They managed to turn it on today precisely with the start of the Yes song Roundabout; it was rather surreal to notice a faint yet familiar guitar melody suddenly come over the silence. While I performed the tests within the facility lot, I was observed ...

    Tomorrow is a personal D Day for me. Let's see how it goes.

    Before leaving from the facility area for the morning's practice, I watched a person perform the skills test to see it conducted by an actual examiner. He wasn't allowed to complete the final phase before he was failed out, or at least I assume that he had failed out because he had accumulated enough points beforehand to demand that he completed the last maneuver with zero penalty points, and I saw the driver shake his head ...

    Managed to squeeze it all in. Two spins in the morning followed by a full day of work. I need to take these last few days to assuredly do the test as close to proper as possible to ensure it's all wrote when the time counts. In the meantime, this just means I have to get to bed pretty much immediately.

    Songs were good today. A shame that I had my first fail of Still My Words this time.

    Tomorrow is going to be a long day; it's 930PM and already time to shower and then get to bed.

    Song session was relatively excellent today. Had a 78% fail with Shades of Grey but I didn't leave a record behind in doing so - no big loss.

    I think I'll resume the reading of the Civil War newspaper reprints from the books that I have. I need to get into a habit of being willing to pick up a book to read it even if it's only for less than an hour or even a scant fifteen minutes.

    It's time to buy a new set of ankle weights, as I've managed to wear through the bottom of the set and have sand starting to leak everywhere, yet again. At least this pair lasted longer than a week as it did on the treadmill.

    Songs ...

    Glad to have two spins at the practice course today.

    I did manage to get the sound functional on my machine, thanks to the "sfc" command which I never had a reason to use until now. The resultant log file that came weighed in at 2MB. There was a lot of work that needed to be done, I guess.

    Not a lot of else to note going on. No response from IRS or anything else important to do.

    Songs started out ok enough but fell apart in a hurry. Maybe I'm ...
