I spent the weekend in Vegas celebrating Breynan's birthday. We were supposed to get in on Thursday, as it was a Thursday-Saturday event. We ended up getting there on Friday, so we missed Ghostbar on Thursday. On Friday, we went to Pure at Caesar's Palace, the "new" hottest nightclub in Vegas. We had a VIP table, but they put us on the top floor, which was actually outdoors. Cold! On Saturday night, we had dinner at N9ne Steak House, followed by clubbing at Rain. Breynan had rented out the entire stage above the bar area, so we all had our own space to drink, dance, and people watch. Breynan certainly knows how to throw a celebration! It also helps to know the right people in Vegas. =]

I interviewed with Barclays Global Investors today. I had a behavioral phone interview yesterday and a technical phone interview today. When I had applied for the position, I was asked to fill out a questionnaire about where I would rank certain computer skills. The choices included "no experience," "beginner," "intermediate," and "advanced." Most of the skills, I had selected "beginner" or "intermediate." But under Java, I had selected "advanced." Today, during my technical interview, the hiring manager says to me, "I'm not trying to diss you, but what makes you think you're advanced in Java?" I felt so stupid. =[
Haha. It's rather amusing in retrospect. Plus, I got called in for an in-person, all-day event interview on-site in San Francisco. So cross your fingers for me. =P

I stole this from the American Idol site (it's funny)!
'Anthony raves about the positive fortune cookies he’s been receiving, believing they’re a sign of positive fate. I know he’s young and all, but does he think negative fortune cookies exist? “You are a miserable person. Babies hate you instinctively. Lucky numbers: None for you.”'
And then you do the fortune cookie game: "You are a miserable person... in bed. Babies hate you instinctively... in bed." Muahaha! But seriously, there ARE negative fortune cookies. Once I got something like, "Innocence lost can never be regained." I mean, that's not very nice!
