Also, the present from the Anonymous Blogger arrived today. It was a couple of kawaii Hello Kitty books for the girls -- a reusable sticker book for Cecilia and a couple of board books for Omi. Here they are:
Once again, Anonymous Blogger, you have my gratitude.
Update: Obviously, my job interview went a lot better than this guy's:
OKLAHOMA CITY (Reuters) - A note to all job seekers: you know that your employment interview did not go well when your prospective boss calls the police in to arrest you.
Anthony Kaleb Phillips, 20 was hauled away from an interview for a job with a construction company in Stillwater, Oklahoma last week after employees recognised the job applicant as the person seen on a surveillance videotape robbing the same business just one day before, police said on Monday.
Phillips is expected to be arraigned this week on burglary charges for stealing a $100 tool (63 pounds) from the construction company and about $1,000 worth of items from an employee's car parked at the office, court officials said.
"When he went out there to apply for the job, there was no one there. So he just helped himself to some items and left," said Payne County Undersheriff Kenneth Willerton. "However, he was caught on videotape."
A day after the robbery, Phillips applied for a job with the construction company, and was arrested. Needless to say, he didn't get the job.
Advice to all job seekers: Follow-up call good, call to cops bad.
