So, toddled up for an interview (thankfully within walking distance) via a recruiter, and got vibes of "oh gawwd" when the idiots started talking about "typing tests"

Thankfully, they were not stupid enough to apply them to me.

They were, however, stupid enough to offer me the following:

-- sysadmin/support job, supporting sites in three countries, new site, so rolling out AD, printer installs, pcs, cabling, network infrastructure, etc etc....for $40k p/a.

*cue laughing fit* (for those of you unsure of Australian payrates - that's the kinda stuff that brings in around 68k minimum)

And it's a three month temp job

It was like titanic in slow motion. But the final snapping of the bow was when the interviewer made it quite clear that they were so interested in me because I'm fucking white and have traces of a UK accent.

Direct quote: "We've had quite a few Indian, Asian and other foreign applicants, but they're very hard to understand and very bad at communicating"

There is no emoticon to describe the face that I pulled right then. Giving them the benefit of the doubt in case of clumsy wording (Eg: if they'd said "You're supporting Germany and Austria over Skype, and they have difficulty with English combined with some accents over this medium" I might have let it slide) , I carefully pointed out that most of my professional career has been spent working with "Indians, Asians and other foreigners" and out of all of the guys I've worked with, the one person I sometimes had issues understanding was the goddamn pale-arsed Qubecois who's face was partially paralyzed. Fuck, most of them are far clearer than your average fucking yob.

In response, I got a faceful of "Of course there are ~exceptions~" and thaaaaaat's when I stood up and walked out.

I'll never be that desperate for a fucking job.

So I hit up spotlight and grabbed some flat fats and made a buncha cushion covers. Which means in the past few days I've done a ton of sewing, mopped and swept, built a new floating deck from scratch and rebuilt a PC. Heh.


In better news, [livejournal.com profile] madscot your parcel came! My face was literally :D :D when I opened it up. SECOND BEST PRESENT EVER!!! (Sorry, [livejournal.com profile] torasin still gets top notch for a much wanted and needed DVI KVM :P) *wears it about the house and swanks in speechless glee*

Fannish friends! Languishing in your archive are posts of great justice loveliness - meta, fic, icons, random babblings that you suspect may have been written by the LJ fairy while you were sleeping. Some of your current flist may never have seen them. Some might be horribly embarrassing to you now. But don't be shy. Share 5 posts (or whatever random number you fancy) from the back catalogue of your LJ.

This might get rather scary....



There's the Drunken Mister Flibble Master Post, whereupon [livejournal.com profile] snowgrouse managed to come up with an even scarier pic than the original....

And The TARDIS in the Hub - which mostly sticks in my mind because it was a stinking hot day and [livejournal.com profile] siamesegoth2 was betaing the image and kept pointing out all sorts of mistakes....

Meaty Davison.

The Mighty Penis of Trion, bonus points for it being CANON crack!

Don't ask me why he's riding a giant stuffed ostrich, he just is

And Madscot proves that although she's not a rabid DW fan, she is a dirty old bat like the rest of us :D

Unfortunately most of the severely cracked shit tended to happen on dw_slash posts or in other people's posts. Like the porn war :D I fear I'm just not a good social hub *emo*

Speaking of which...... TEH EPIC PORN PHOTOWAR THREAD!


AND THIS ONE...gets in a bonus, just because I love it and it's true.
