Another Application In....

Went over to "American Meter Services" and applied for a job this morning. I was researching jobs on the "Louisiana Works" site yesterday and saw they have two openings for meter readers for Entergy. Hope I get this, although they said they have 12 people applied already. Wanted to get back home today though, because the air repair guys said they should have the parts for my cooling unit in by today.

In other news, I see where Tony Randall died last night. Always liked the shows he was in, didn't even know he was sick. I still get a laugh when watching the movie "Foolin' Around", in the scenes where he played the butler "Peddicord", and Cloris Leachman would tell him to do something, and in a deadpan tone would say, "Yes Madam", then he'd whisper as she was walking away, "Bitch!".... by the end of the movie though, they wound up getting married...



May have to watch my tape of the movie again sometime today, haven't watched it in awhile. That is another movie they should release on DVD.

Apparently Going to Have Another Hot, Sweaty Night...

Apparently the air repair folks didn't get the parts in for my cooling unit, it is 4:15pm, and I haven't heard a peep from them. I can never sleep well when I'm hot, and the past few nights, although sleepy as a dwarf in Snow White, I can't sleep worth a darn. Even had TWO fans on last night. If I had known they weren't going to show up today, I could have put in a couple more job applications and did my grocery shopping...

In other news, I appear to be starting a nasty flame war in my "low carb" post from the other day... I love egging people on! Seems the longer I live alone, the gripier I get on some subjects. :-)

UPDATE: Bell Heating and Air just called... the parts are in, but they are tied up until Monday. Replacing the cooling coil and fan will be in the neighborhood of $700... sweatin' till Monday....
