Working at Teleperformance

Yesterday I started working at Teleperformance. I will be doing triage (email) technical support for TurboTax after 5 weeks of training. My training is from 3-11:30 P.M. M-F. I'm getting paid $9/hr and I'll get benefits after 30 days.

Yesterday I also moved to a house that is closer to my new job. I am renting a room from a lady who is renting rooms in a house that her friend owns (he's serving in Iraq). It's just me and her until she rents the other rooms. She's a nice lady.

King Kong

Last night Phil and I saw King Kong at the Cinemark 24 @ Jordan Landing. I rate it 2 (out of 5) stars. It was too long (3 hours) and the idea of the movie is dumb: lady gets captured by huge man-eating gorilla, lady develops Stockholm Syndrome for huge man-eating gorilla, lady gets rescued, people capture huge man-eating gorilla (yeah right) and transport him back to N.Y.C. (double yeah right) where he escapes (surprise <--- sarcasm) and goes on a rampage. I'm looking forward to seeing Fun With Dick and Jane, Bloodrayne, Glory Road, The New World, and Underworld: Evolution.

Player's is temporarily closed until the owner pays some bills. I've got an interview with Teleperformance tomorrow. Hopefully I'll get hired and start their training class next week.

Rev Run's Words of Wisdom

Reverend Run (formerly of the rap group Run-D.M.C.) posts Words of Wisdom on his website every day. Each episode of Run's reality show, Run's House, ends with these words of wisdom. Here is Rev Run's Words of Wisdom for today:
Good morning. Many people who are overweight are carrying to much mentally. Many people that have back problems are carrying to much by theirself! Isolation is sickness.. Give your burdens to God.. Pray often! Ask others for help! Life is much eaiser when we stick together. Always remember this! One snowflake is frail but when snow sticks together it can stop traffic. Isolation is sickness!



Last night Phil and I saw Syriana at Jordan Commons Megaplex 17. I rate it 3 (out of 5) stars. I was expecting it to be more of an action movie, but it mostly focused on the politics of the oil industry. I'll probably see King Kong this weekend.

Last Week

Here's what I did last week:

Player's is only open on Wednesdays (for "What the Punk" Wednesdays - featuring live performances by Corner Pocket and other punk bands) and Saturdays (it's Couples Night every Saturday) until the end of the year. Hopefully we will re-open on Tuesdays (for Ladies' Night*) and Fridays (for our Hip-Hop Party) in January. I need to find a day job!

*Ladies never pay a cover at Player's - so every night is "Ladies Night".

Aeon Flux

Last night Phil and I saw Aeon Flux at the Cinemark 24 @ Jordan Landing. I rate it 4 (out of 5) stars. Aeon Flux is based on the animated series that was on MTV. You can buy the original series on DVD. I'm still working at Players. Hopefully by the end of the week I'll have a new cell phone from Verizon.
