    Tape worms can be fun....

    OK, probably not really. But some of our friends overseas may have a different perspective on little itchy critters. Ummm, I guess that's definitely seeing the positive side of things. Of course, now I'm incredibly troubled by the idea of eyelash mites...

    A little disconcerting

    I just had one of those moments at the gym where I think someone recognized me from my blog. This happens every once in a while. Someone looks at me as if they know me and I have never seen the person before. Kind of like they are greeting someone they...

    If you don't have time to tell me what you are looking for, I don't have time to recruit for you

    I prefer that you predict the end of the world on a Monday, not a Friday

    From Dave Lefkow . Seriously, what happens when you show up for the interview looking nothing like the shiny 2-D you? It's kind of Max Headroom meets bait and switch tactics for job seekers. Should you even worry about the fact that you aren...
