Had a very good recruiter interview today. This guy really did his homework and gave me some tips on interviewing, specific questions to consider, a different approach to writing a resume, and a lot more advice. I don't think I've ever taken away so much good information from a recruiter before, and I will highly recommend him for that. He is an engineering specialist in the higher end, so for those of you who may be interested, let me know and I will pass along his contact info.

Me also went grocery shopping yesterday in preparation for Thanksgiving. I didn't realize that Cub now carries monkey brains in the deli. It's a bit expensive, but good monkey brains are hard to find.

Still way too much work to do on the house to prep for the day of the turkey. I have to remove the door sill from the back, which involves cutting through brick, or more precisely, the mortar between the bricks. As it happens, the previous owner (or one of the previous owners) installed a door and decided that rather than doing a proper sill, he'd just build it up high enough to clear the brick facing-- about 4 inches. Perfect tripping level. Then I need to close the gap between the deck and the floor, as well as closing the gap between the top of the ramp and the deck.

And I still have the workbenches to finish.

To remain on schedule, I have to finish all this tonight.

It's gonna be busy.
