Just the one post this week: Towards a more inclusive recruitment process, part 2: applications
Earworm of the week was Oxford Comma by Vampire Weekend, on account of me joking that one of the criteria for the candidates I’m interviewing for a job in my team is ‘Gives a fuck about an Oxford comma’.
I’m also still listening a lot to 3 Feet High & Rising by De La Soul.
It’s been on my watchlist for a while but I finally got round to watching Everything Everywhere All At Once. It was as bonkers as I imagined it would be based on the buzz I’d picked up about it. What I wasn’t expecting was the underlying sentiment behind all the madness. I won’t say more for fear of spoiling it. The only other thing I would say is I’m glad I watched it on a big TV and not on my iPad or, god forbid, iPhone.
In anticipation of Ted Lasso returning on 15 March, I rewatched all of season 1 and half of season 2 this weekend. I picked up on a lot more things this time round – partly because when I watched season 1 the first time, it was on a rubbish tv on an unstable internet connection in the cottage we were renting when we first moved to Devon. I loved season 1 but the character development in season 2 is noticeably deeper, especially when you know how things pan out. Again, I won’t say more for fear of spoiling it.
Watching Ted Lasso this weekend was timely. It helped remind me to ‘Be curious, not judgemental’. I have this on a Ted Lasso unoffical merchandise artwork on my wall behind me but I’ve lost sight of it recently – not just metaphorically, but also literally, as the way my screen and webcam are angled now, the video doesn’t pick up the print on my wall. Anyway, like I said, rewatching Ted Lasso was timely and after not the best of weeks, I’m all set to go into the next week with my positive pants on.
That was the week that was for week ending 5 March 2023.
