Rummaging resumes

Actually there wasn’t as much rummaging as usually happens upon the GG’s departure or return from one of his boondoggles. For one thing, he was caught in a huge rainstorm yesterday on the way down the I75 SUV Speedway. Unfortunately, the vent on top of the Lyme Lounge popped up and there was a “gallon” of water in there by the end of his trip. So he had to deal with that.

Also, about the time he returned, it was at the hottest part of the day and I decided I needed to catch some rays. So I took my booook out back, put my sun hat on and read. Mr. Golden Sun was brilliantly bright this afternoon with no clouds in the sky and he kept me warm for a while but eventually I had to head back inside. It is November and our light breeze turned chilly as Mr. Golden started to head down toward the Landfill Roof. And now Mr. Golden has been below the horizon for almost an hour. Pitch black except for the moooon, which is beautiful to the eye but would look like a round white thing in an iPhone photo. Part of being an amateur iPhoneographer is knowing when your device is not up to the task 🐽

Even though I WROTE today’s title, I keep reading “resume” as that thing that you write when you’re job-hunting. Not that any meager little resume that I ever wrote was what got me a job. I fell into all of them via connections and I’m not sure anyone ever read any of my resumes. I don’t really need one any more. If I could find any old resumes, I would BURN them. But I didn’t want anyone to think I was rummaging through a whole bunch of old resumes. I meant resume in terms of continuing something after a break, aka “rezoom”. (Although the GG has probably been rummaging throughout his entire boondoggle. It’s just that I haven’t been subject to enduring it.)

BTW: I realize that a proper spelling of resume probably has one (or two?) accents. Even where I have used it in that sense in this entry, I left the accents out. It’s not because I don’t know how to put accents over letters via my keyboard because I do. It’s because when I looked up how to spell resume with accents, the first site The Google turned up started out with a discussion about whether there are supposed to be ONE or TWO accents. Nope. I was outta there like a bat outta hell. I am not (usually) out here to argue about spelling and grammar, especially when accented letters are involved. So that’s a rabbit hole I kept myself out of today.

    I thought the job-getting piece of paper first also. LOL

    Technically, in French, there are two accents. But it’s easier just to use CV.
