Happy Birthday Hirji!

Today was Hirji's birthday. (He's also a QA recruiter, sits in the cube next to mine.) We went to La Bodegita for lunch along with a few others in Prom D. Our waiter was a complete waste of space. Took him over 10 minutes to bring us water and bread. He took an order for 2 Heinekens which never came, because it turns out La Bodegita doesn't serve Heinekens! Then of course, the crowning touch, cutting up Hirji's birthday cake and returning it to me in a box instead of serving it to us, then wanting to charge us $2 each for a dessert fee. (Also I asked him to cut it into 6 pieces, we ended up with 8.) Overall, a very memorable experience. Don't get me wrong though, the food was oh so good! I recommend the skirt steak, medium rare.

My first blog entry,EVER!!

I guess this is kind of cool. My own blog :-) Somewhere for me to express my private self and let the whole world read about it, lol.

I'm a recruiter at VMware, Inc. mainly looking for QA folks. Since I look at people's blogs in my candidate search, I figure I might as well start a blog too. Make it fair, since I looked at your blog you can come and peruse mine.

Today has not been the best of days. 2 candidates, yes, TWO! decided last minute that they don't really want to work here and canceled their on-site interviews. One actually canceled the day of. Having had a great weekend and coming back to work to get this news just blows.

It's starting to sound like a diary, and I guess it will go on being this way from now on. Once I learn more about how to post pictures and all that jazz, I'll update.

Bye for now!
