A-yep. I should post "my real resume" sometime, but it might be something like this:

Objective: I'm not picky. I just like to program, and I need a job.

I may not have the exact experience you're looking for, but hey, give me a chance and I can learn. I'm a good student.

Don't expect me to work overtime too often -- that is a symptom of poor management. Fix your own problems instead of covering them up.

I'm not the first one to explode off the starting block, but after that first one has "fixed all your bugs", totally trashed your code, and wandered off to another job looking for a hotshot, I'll still be running.

...Like you, I'm taking a little break from the actual "search" part of job search and am getting back into programming, so that I can present something a bit more compelling than the above.

Homey don't play that (game) is from The Homey the Clown Show. Mmmmmmm, wayan-see goodness.

Just as an aside, the contract game is nice enough in that you know that at least if there isn't a light at the end of the tunnel, at least the tunnels ends somewhere out there. :-)

Oh, and when your boss asks if you can back up one of your former coworkers who is going on his honeymoon for a month, _on the project you got laid off from_, you don't feel too worried as you are laughing for the next five minutes. :-)
