So I woke up this morning to go to another job interview. I was pretty confident about the two job interviews for the same company last week that i would be in for sure with them, but as my mom told me yesterday "It ain't over till the fat lady sings" so i went to it anyway just to see what they had to offer. I was up-front with the service manager and explained that even though it said on my resume that i was a journeyman heavy equipment technician with a red seal certificate, i was still a tad shy on lots of the practical experience, and i wasn't looking for a huge salary at the moment. He said he would have someone work along side with me and there was a good chance that i would get some field experience. I suggested $27 an hour to start off and he figured that would be fair and he would review my performance after 3 months and increase my wage then. So with that being said he asked me when i could start. I told him Wednesday. It's official, i'm going back to work :-D
After the interview i made a couple stops. I needed to get a new guitar tuner since my other one crapped out on me 2 weeks ago and i've been going all that time tuning by ear. I'm not terrible at it, but just a little bit off when it comes to accurately tuning. Now the way i am, i can't go into a guitar store without playing with some of the toys. Tom Morello from Rage Against The Machine creates lots of crazy sound effects with his guitar in lots of the Rage and Audioslave albums. One of the effects on his board is a Whammy pedal. Basically what this effect does is increases or decreases the octave of a note by 1 or 2 levels. I tried it out for the first time, probably one of the coolest pedals i've ever tried out :-D. Now all i gotta do is work for a few months and save up $250 bucks and its mine :-).
I did some browsing around future shop afterwards to. Big mistake, ended up dropping 40 bucks on music lol. Bought the new Motorhead CD along with a Slayer and The Clash double disc sets. I couldn't help it, they were so inexpensive and thats all i really spend my money on lol.
