Ever feel overqualified?

Quote du jour: Experience is not what happens to a man. It is what a man does with what happens to him.
- Aldous Huxley
Site du jour: Save the Words. Adopt a word today -- take it out, give it a run. The experience will not be vappous.
The job hunt continues.
Spoke to a recruiter yesterday, another one this morning. I'm definitely getting my name out there. This last recruiter was a bit disconcerting to talk to. Every time I made a comment, she would laugh uproariously, as if it were the funniest thing in the world. I don't think I'm that funny.
Well, not every single thing I said. I exaggerate slightly. She didn't laugh when I mentioned salary. Just mentioned that it was out of the range for all the positions she had available. She did ask if I wanted to apply for a job that was a two-hour drive away from my house. Was I supposed to laugh? I'm not sure.
Exercise du jour: Going for 30 minutes on the elliptical. This time, before Midnight.
Done! And with almost three hours to spare. Proactive, that's me. Sorta.
