Tracky bottom days

And so another month draws to its close, without me having found a job. I've got an appointment at the Job Centre later today, to see my so-called 'work coach' (and that's a misnomer as there's no coaching involved in this position at all, just checking to see whether I've not committed any benefit fraud inbetween appointments), and I'll ask once more if I can't do some voluntary work for a bit, just so as I can have a reason to change out of these tracky bottoms I've taken to wearing lately. Because why should I put in an effort to look presentable when I don't have an office to go to?

I came across a website the other day that promised easy money by 'processing e-mails'. 30 Euros per e-mail processed, guaranteed! Typically, if you signed up with this service, they'd have you process 10-20 e-mails a day, which means you'd earn 300-600 euros a day...which is a helluva lot of money. All that is required of those doing the processing is that they have a working Internet connection and an e-mail address, and then the money would start rolling in immediately. The website made it clear the content of the e-mails to be processed were 'not of a sexual nature', quotes a registration number with the Chamber of Commerce, and publishes a number of testimonials from satisfied processors who claim to be stay-at-home mums or people who have been able to pay off their debts through signing up, but I don't know; it sounds decidedly iffy to me. I guess it must be some kind of spamming service, and I hate spam. Still, for a minute there, I was tempted.

I got the heads-up about a month and a half ago that hp is hiring again, but I decided against it because I couldn't face having to commit myself to that horrendous 2 hour daily commute each way again; now I'm wondering if I haven't been too hasty in discounting the possibility.

And so we come to Day 06 of the 30 Day Movie Meme, and the subject is: 'Movie that makes you cry every time'.

In truth, I haven't seen this film that many times, but I remember it as quite beautiful and sad. There are so many sad movies out there that it's hard to pick out just one...and besides, I usually find something to cry about in each and every film I watch.
