Wed update: Vote for St. Jude, Red Rooster, C# programming position

There’s a Facebook promotion going on right now called Bullseye Gives. Through this promotion Target will give $3 million to St. Jude and other charity partners. Your votes will determine how much of the $3 million St. Jude gets. Go to Target’s Facebook page to vote, and you can vote once per day through May 25.

On May 26, Target will announce the amount each charity gets, based on vote percentage. So if St. Jude got 50% of the vote, they’d receive 50% of the money, or 1.5 million dollars.

Something else I saw on Facebook – this coming Monday, the Red Rooster will throw a Monday Fun Day party entitled “Luau – everyone gets Laid.” It’s a chance to show off your summer beach bodies and tans. Attire is beach or summer clothes. Domestics and vodka drinks will be on special for $2.50.

Also, the Rooster’s prize for this week’s “You Got the Look/Chicklette of the Week” contest is a Big Buddha handbag.  It’s Thursday night after the Peabody rooftop.

If anyone is looking for a C# programming position, I know of a recruiter who has one open. It requires 3-5 years programming experience and some project management experience. It would be ideal for someone out east in the Germantown/Collierville area, and it’s for a large manufacturing company. If interested e-mail me at and I’ll put you in touch with the recruiter. No need to send resumes, just send a paragraph summarizing your past experience, and if you seem qualified, I’ll put you in touch.

Hmmm… the recruiters never give out the names of the companies, but I think I know which one they’re talking about… if I’m right, I interviewed with them 2 years ago and got asked one of the dumbest IT interview questions ever. “How many languages support the .NET framework?” The real answer is, it doesn’t matter, because as long as you know one of them, you’re good to go. The answer he was looking for was 23 (this was 2 years ago – may be more or less now). I have no idea why he asked that. It was completely useless trivia.

Outta here… I was asked to do a photo shoot for some social media presentation and they want to do it at the Saucer.  Now that I can handle.
