Meanwhile, the job hunt is not going well on other fronts. There are loads of job postings around, but hardly any at my level; and my phone remains stubbornly silent. None of the recruitment agencies I'm registered with have got back to me yet, and I'm rapidly losing heart. And then, I went and added to my misery by breaking my laptop keyboard, when I took my frustrations out on it and the keycaps started flying around my ears.
So, I'm in need of cheering up, and maybe this meme that I've stolen from chickenfeet2003 will do just that. We last played this game on the 28th of September, 2008, so please will you indulge me?
