Chainsaw work

Jess and I are a little down today. I got a solid rejection from the job that I really wanted, and still haven't heard back from that other job that would have been pretty cool.

Jess has had two interviews recently and she just didn't feel like the interviewers got to see the "real" her. They may have gone well, and she may get one of them, but the feeling of confidence just wasn't there. In her words, "I just wish they could tear my heart out and see it."

So, in that spirit, today I began looking for jobs in Alaska. Why not?

The best job description I have ever seen. Really, I mean it. I found it on Craigslist.org this morning. I could live forever with my job description looking like this.

Excuse me? Did you say operate chainsaw, firearms use and maintenance, and JET BOAT in the same sentence? That job has ME written all over it!

Now all I have to do is get out of my part-time teaching contract.

Hey, do they hire senior citizens as well? I like the sound of that job. Be sure you get a good quality chainsaw though! Take your pepper spray though and a whistle for bear protection! You do know how to tell if you are in black bear or grizzly country don't you? Black bear feces has a berry smell. Grizzly bear feces smells like pepper and may have a whistle or two in it!
