Here's a laugh for you

Here are some real life examples of what NOT to put on your resume.

"My intensity and focus are at inordinately high levels, and my ability to complete projects on time is unspeakable."

"Instrumental in ruining entire operation for a Midwest chain store."

"I am a rabid typist."

"I have an excellent track record, although I am not a horse."

"References: None, I've left a path of destruction behind me."

"I have become completely paranoid, trusting completely nothing and absolutely no one."

"Don't take the comments of my former employer too seriously, they were unappreciative beggars and slave drivers."

"I am loyal to my employer at all costs...Please feel free to respond to my resume on my office voicemail."

"Qualifications: No education or experience."

"Extensive background in accounting. I can also stand on my head!"

"My goal is to be a meteorologist. But since I possess no training in meteorology, I suppose I should try stock brokerage."

"I procrastinate--especially when the task is unpleasant."

Guess who FINALLY watched High School Musical last night?

High School Musical is about two teenagers who meet on vacation, Troy and Gabriella, after being picked to sing a song at a New Year's party. When they arrive home, they realize they both attend the same school. Gabriella is brilliant and loves math. Troy is the captain of the basketball team and the coach's son. On the spur of the moment, they decide to try out for the school musical and receive a callback. But not everyone wants them in the school musical.

I LOVE musicals. I love getting the soundtracks afterwards. My favorite song from this was probably "When There was Me and You". I love this movie and hope to watch it again SOON!!!! I disliked Sharpay from the moment I saw her and, every time she showed up, I liked her less. The only thing I didn't like was the tryouts for the musical. The singers were horrible. It's supposed to be funny, but they had waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too many of them. It was awful to listen to. And now... take a guess as to what's next. You guessed right! (Or wrong, depending on your guess.) QUOTES!!!!!

Gabrilla Montez: [about singing previously] Well, you sound like you've done a lot of singing, too. Troy Bolton: Yeah, my showerhead is very impressed.

Sharpay: Well congratulations, I guess I'm going to be the understudy in case you can't make one of the shows, so break a leg.

Ms. Darbus: [bell rings] Was that a cell phone?

Gabrilla Montez: The Wildcats' superstar is... afraid? Troy Bolton: No, no, I'm not afraid. I'm just... scared.

Chad: I smell a rat named Darbus... Kelsi: Actually, it's two rats neither of them named Darbus. Chad: Do you know something about this... small person?

Ms. Darbus: [to Chad] Mr. Danforth! This is a place of learning, not a hockey arena.

Skater Dude: If Troy can tell his secret, then I'm coming clean. I play the cello! Skater Dude #2: Awesome! What is it? Skater Dude: [mimes playing the cello] Skater Dude #2: A saw? Skater Dude: No dude, it's like a giant violin!

Sharpay: [pacing after callbacks announced] How dare she sign up. I've already picked out the colors for my dressing room. Ryan: Besides, she hasn't even asked our permission to join the drama club. Sharpay: [slams hands down on table] Someone's gotta tell her the rules. Ryan: Exactly. [long pause] Ryan: ... And what're the rules?

Ms. Darbus: Troy Bolton? Where is your sports posse, or whatever you call it? Troy Bolton: Uhh, team.

Chad: Look, that music in those shows isn't hip-hop, okay, or rock, or anything essential to culture. It's all show music. It's all costumes and makeup... oh, dude, it's frightening.

Ms. Darbus: And, we have not got a pianist. Ryan Evans: That's showbiz. Troy Bolton: We'll sing without a piano. Kelsi: Oh no you won't. Pianist here, Ms. Darbus. Sharpay Evans: You really don't want to do that. Kelsi: Oh yes, I really do.

Jack Bolton: Troy doesn't even sing.

Troy Bolton: Sharpay's kinda cute too. Chad: Yeah, so is a mountain lion, but you don't pet it.

Chad: What spell has this elevated IQ temptress girl cast that suddenly makes you wanna be in a musical?

Sharpay: [laughs] I'd rather stick pins in my eyes. Zeke: Well, wouldn't that be awfully uncomfortable?

Chad: What's up? Oh let's see, um you miss free period workout yesterday to audition for some heinous musical, and now suddenly people are confessing. Yeah Zeke, Zeke is baking. Crème brûlée. Troy Bolton: Oh. What's that? Zeke: Oh, it's a creamy custard-like filling with a caramelized surface, it's really satisfying. Troy Bolton: Yeah, cool.

Gabrilla Montez: When I was singing with you, I felt like just a girl. Troy Bolton: You even look like one too!

(After Sharpay asks how many school musicals have contained her music.)
Kelsi: This would be the first. Sharpay: Which tells us what? Kelsi: That I need to write you more solos? Sharpay: No. It tells us that you do not offer direction, suggestion, or commentary. And you should be thankful that me and Ryan are here to lift your music out of its current obscurity. Are we clear?

Gabrilla Montez: Did you ever feel like there was a whole other person inside you just looking for a way to come out? Taylor: No. Not really.
