If We Were Having Coffee: Skyping Adventures Edition

If we were having coffee, I would buy us some coffee. It’s might be a ploy to have someone come over and help me with this Skype situation.

No, not the looking ugly situation. I have that covered. Hair, makeup and no pajamas. Looking pretty good, even with the glasses. If I take them off, then I can’t read the questions or see the screen. I’ll look like I’m squinting too much because I will be squinting too much.

I am having the “why can’t anyone hear me?” problem. Also, the “boyfriend is sleeping on the couch” problem. I fixed that one finally. The camera moves. πŸ™‚

There was supposed to be a Skype interview. It would have been so much better if they could hear me. Alas, it was not meant to be. We had to do a regular phone interview. Thanks Unparalleled Height for being so cool about changing plans.

They also know how to look nice during a Skype interview. They work out. Yeah, I asked in a roundabout way.

We can even have coffee in these nifty Skype mugs. I know, I know!!! We can Skype and drink coffee. It would be fabulous. If only you could hear me. . . .

  1. I don’t do the Skype thing and can’t help ya with the microphone thing without knowing your setup, but I hope the interview went okay despite all that. πŸ™‚

  2. Opps..So sorry you had to resort to old school. Wish I could help but I lost my tech creed in the stroke melt down. I now have to have someone explain my damn cell phone to me on occasion. Which ticks me off, I promise you. Maybe if I stopped upgrading I might figure one completely, but what fun is that? I hope you get it hooked up right. If not, I might be able to get my neighbors fifteen year old to help explain it in small enough words to help out!
    J/k, there are no words small enough for me to figure out a non working skype. You are on your own, good luck. But thanks for the coffee anyway.
