oooh. I just got emailed back about a job at an art gallery that I'd applied to almost a month ago. Hopefully I can squeeze in an interview before my visit to my boyfriend's. Even if it's not a full-time job-I forget if it is or isn't- (TECHNICALLY I now have a job again, but I don't start until the end of April, so no harm in a backup plan or starting a second one), it's a really cool job, and right downtown, so no ridiculously long bus ride to get to it.

That reminds me, a few months ago I got an email from a job at the hospital saying I didn't get the position.

I'd applied for that job nearly 7 months prior...

If the administration was that bad you're probably better off not working there.

I dunno, administration on EVERYTHING seems ot be really lazy as of late. I actually ended up applying for ODSP ("Ontario Disability Suport Program"; it's sort of like a financial aid system in this province for those who have disabilities, but the main difference from regular disability support is, you're allowed to and much encouraged to work. But if you can't work to the income cutoff set for you during the month, you get the remainder paid to you by them and an extra $100 for work expenses).... and my application was received apparently in mid-October. They SAID they'd reach their decision in three months tops.
Guess what I got in the mail last week? A "Yes, you meet our criteria for "disabled" letter, about two months past I'd expected on getting anything back. (Though I've still got to go through the hoops on if I meet their finiancial aid criteria too)

Phish food may be the only ice cream I genuinely would have a craving for.

So it's just rocky road with chocolate fish instead of chocolate chips? ...yeah, I don't really see why Ben n' Jerry's makes their ice cream so expensive. No flavours I've seen are really that original.

It's not so much the originality as the quality of the ice cream. Though the Apple pie ice cream is pretty unique, so was Yellow Brickle road, Americone Dream, Whirled Peace, a lot of the newer and limited addition ones are interesting.

Usually when I go for quality ice cream, I just spring for one of the small parlours in town that does handmade ice cream. Although I usually prefer a fruity frozen yogurt to ice cream in the summer. Sticky sugar and chocolate does NOT refresh me when it;s hot, but frozen strawberry in some form sure does...

We don't have many places near me that I know of that have homemade ice cream... I usually spring for Coldstone when I can.

Thou shall not speak ill of Phish Food. It is amazing.

Ay, ay, ay!

The chocolate is fish-shaped, and there's a caramel swirl.


^ This one's my favorite.
