Two Things

1. I would like to request anyone that can relate to please join me in a happy dance to the tune of "Evy just fit into her favorite pair of jeans that she hasn't been able to wear since probably October of 2007!!!!" I would also like to point out that these pants are 3 sizes smaller than the ones I was...

Wright State invited me to fill out this survey on that topic (and Facebook in general) and the last question was an open-ended one where I got to state just what the title of this note says. I am going to paste my answer and invite anyone who reads this to leave their two cents on the subject as a comment.



I feel the use...

I would have to agree with you about using facebook to snoop on employees. Just because they act a certain way in their home life doesn't mean that they aren't a good hard worker. If some employers were to see that we are not "mainstream" they wouldn't hire you. It's ridiculous that some one might not hire you because you like to drink or possibly even like BDSM or don't have a business image in your personal life. Stuff like facebook has nothing to say what kind of a worker you are so I think employers have no right to make decisions based on it.
liathach:
I've interviewed countless potential employees and I would NEVER stoop to trawling through personal information on FB or anywhere else. If you interview professionally, using behavioural competencies, you can get all the information you need, based on their past work performance.
I don't care if you bugger cats in your free time (although I might report you to the RSPCA), as long as you demonstrate a professional attitude to your work.
If employers are referring to FB in any capacity, then they are being unprofessional, and I wouldn't want to be working for them.
Mind you, I do have a reputation as a killer interviewer. I brought someone out in a stress rash once! "So NurseEvy, tell me about a time when a project of yours failed. Can you analyse why it failed, and what you would do differently in hindsight?"

Hi. My name is Evy and I'm a clutz. I sprained my foot bad enough that I have to wear a brace and use crutches and stay off it for the week. Unfortunately I'm about the worst nurse ever and totally noncompliant and can't bring myself to use the crutches all the time. Oy!
agamemnon711:
that sucks. hopefully it won't take long to heal.
liathach:
Just like my wife. She broke her ankle playing volleyball many years ago. I came home one day to find the crutches lying in the front garden, where she'd hurled them in a fit of temper!
Hope you're fully fit again soon.

I have a new, amazingly cute kitteh I got from the Dayton Humane Society today. I'm really impressed with their adoption process and all the "perks" their cats come with (micro chipping, 3 months free pet insurance, spade/neutered, current vaccines, collars and tags, and *cheap* adoption fees). That they make you fill out an application before they give you your pet is extra...

I'm glad to see that they make it easy so that the process doesn't scare people away from adopting pets from the humane society.

I have alot on my mind but no words to say it as of yet.

So, instead: Did you know I am on Twitter? No? Well you should follow me. I'm not really as vain to think I'm all that interesting to follow, but if you follow me, I can find you and follow you and I really like reading peoples random thoughts...

I'm glad you like him! Wifey and I won free tickets to see him in London about seven years back, and go to a VIP party too! He played the whole of Low, then the whole of Heathen, and finished off with Ziggy Stardust. Probably my top ever concert.

Summer Party Playlist

I'm working on making a really killer playlist to play at pool parties and cookouts (both of which I am now extending an open invitation to all of you to come to) with a decent mix of Top 40, Hip Hop, RnB, Indie, 80s, Oldies, 90s, and various other genres that I like. The idea is to have enough on it...

So, I'm super pissed at Dayton area Graeters' right now. No lie. I went in again tonight, May 6th, and they STILL don't have Strawberry Chip. Not only that, but the little shit behind the counter was extra condescending and told me I should wait another month or two, what they "do have right now," and that I should "look at the schedule...

Please Shut Up about the Swine Flu!!

*sigh* No, really. I'm tired of reading about reasonable, smart people I know freaking out about the Swine Flu. Enough is enough. Please read on:

Well thanks for checking out my blog! I'll be sure to wish you a happy bday!
liathach:
Love the blog. Our media are just the same. We get one rather sick looking migrating swan in winter, and we're about to be decimated by H5N1, apparently.

Worse still is the amount of slack this will give the male half of the population. The periodic bouts of 'man flu' that sweep the world (usually accompanied by lots of groaning, self-pity, writing of wills and getting their wives to make them cups of tea), will now receive an extra boost, with men everywhere collapsing on sofas (you have to be expertly trained to spot the difference from everyday behaviour here), and blaming it on the bacon they had for breakfast.
