Easter, Creepiness, and the Job Search

I was browsing through the news a little while ago and saw a blurp about a death which occurred yesterday just a couple blocks from where I am currently house-sitting.  Now, the suspects have already been arrested, but I find it a little unnerving, especially since I drove past there twice yesterday.  I have no idea when the incident occurred.  I imagine it happened sometime after I returned from my family home where we celebrated Easter, otherwise I am certain I would have been intrigued by all the police activity.  I am not even sure if I would have been able to get around the number of vehicles that would have responded.  It is only a two-lane road.  That would have been fun to navigate for sure.  I think I am mostly unnerved because of its proximity and the fact these things do not happen often in my area.

Easter was a quiet occasion at my family home.  My brothers, parents, and I gathered for a ham feast along with green bean casserole, macaroni and cheese, and dinner roles.  We also played a couple rounds of cards before my brother decided he needed to think about getting ready for work.

The frog struck again in the shape of frog Easter eggs filled with jelly beans.  My dad’s first comment was, “Where did you find frog Easter eggs?” QFC.  Mwa ha ha.  My brother was so amused by them that he swapped one of his plastic eggs for a frog egg.  Thus, I may have to get more next year.  Darn!

Today, bright and early (for me, anyway), I got a call from the guy I interviewed with last week.  I came in a close second to the guy they ultimately hired.  I am disappointed, but a little surprised that the guy offered to refer my name to any of the other stores in his district that are looking for a loss prevention associate.  I have never had a potential employer offer that up before.  But the job hunt continues.  I am still putting out applications and hoping to hear back from places soon.  I am enjoying my break after school ended, certainly, but I do not want it to last too long.
