Added a blog and my interview scam experience.

Well I know I'm not really all that active on my blog, but I've decided that I'm going to be. So one way I'm going to do this is by starting another blog (Hmmm.... Common sense eludes me sometimes I think LOL)

My new blog is going to be just for my book reviews. In addition to this new blog my book reviews can be found at Goodreads.com, paperbackswap.com, amazon.com. I'm thinking of setting up a B&N user account and posting there also, but that'll have to wait till later.

Ok, now to the real story: I've been looking for a part-time job, and so far no luck. Well I had an "interview" last night with a financial company that I proably won't mention. So I was kinda pummped. I looked into their website a little bit and they looked like a good legit company. I go to my "interview" and low and behold it's basically AmWay for investments. I was so p***** off.

I've sold AmWay before and I've been to an "interview" that was similar to this one. But did I realize what was going on? Nope, not me, not until the end of the presentation. They started by talking about the company, how long they've been in business, magazines that have done stories on them.... blah blah blah. Then they went into what kind of services they offer their clients mortgage refinanicing, term-life insurance, and mutual funds. So it all still seems ok to me. Then this guy comes up and put a graphic on the screen and thats when it hits me!!! The graphic they used was almost identical to the one that we used to use when I "sold" AmWay. So now I'm getting mad and I was gonna just walk out of there, but for some reason I'm too polite and I just sat through this whole two-hour presentation and it was nothing but a waste of my time. UUUUUUURRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh well, I'm frustrated, but not much I can do at this point right?

Other than that I'm almost done with my Vanna Afghan, when I get it finished I'll post some pics. I've actually been thinking (since I started a reading blog) that I'll start another blog just for my knitting stuff. Because the best way to be better about posting to my blogs is to have so many of them that it becomes overwhelming right?
