Oh well, I think I type faster than 60WPM, but I’m not complaining. They are very nice at Olympic Staffing, so if you ever need a Typing Certificate and are near the Monrovia/Arcadia border and have $20.00 cash that’s the place to go!

Man alive, job hunting is a lot different in 2012 than it was in 1998. Hoo-whee!

Took the CIA Personality Quiz to see if I should work there. The flash intro is worth a look even if you don’t take the quiz, which is also a riot. Spies and humor = yay! Be sure your speakers are on. According to my responses I’m a Curious Adventurer. Oh, tell me something I didn’t know, CIA.

Well, back to the curious adventure of looking at job boards. Yay?

Discovered International Association of Administrative Professionals and posted my resume there. I also set up an email job alert.

My computer at work keeps backdating itself to 2001, and some of the applications wouldn’t work right. Very strange, but manageable: I just changed the date and time to the present. Today I had to start the computer in Safe Mode to get the keyboard to work so I could change the date. This has gone from annoying to very annoying. I’m running XP, so I hope this isn’t some weird malware or virus Kaspersly missed.

I temped there in the 1990s and it was a fun place to work (and the food was really good, too).
