The big freeze is here. We'll be below zero F for several days now. In anticipation, I went out to find a better jacket for myself. My leather/wool one just doesn't cut it on days like these so I went downtown to the spookily quiet underground shopping malls to find one. I had seen one at the Gap in Vancouver that I liked so I went there first. "We are all out of winter jackets," the salesman informed me, "We have the spring collection now." I thought this was retarded since winter lasts until April up here. No matter though, I ended up finding a nifty snowboarding jacket at Winners. Winners is like Ross or Marshall's in the states.
In other news, I got a call from the government in response to the job I applied for in July. Yes, as in six months ago. I'm having some kind of interview over the phone tomorrow. It's a psychological test as well. Today, I'm going to review everything about the department I applied to work in so that I can sound knowledgeable and professional. I'd better review what I put on my resume as well so I don't screw up. I would really like this position so fingers crossed everyone!
Here's what I want to know: who signed me up for these uber-conservative mailing lists? So lame. Every headline is just oozing condescension on anything liberal. I'm not a big fan of Daily Kos or the Huffington Post because there is inherent bias and the same goes with these guys. How are we edifying ourselves if we constantly look for validation of our opinions instead of constantly questioning the validity of our opinions? There is a big difference.
