FACT: Duchovny means 'spiritual' -,...in Russian.

Hi there! : )
If you have just landed here after Googling me (I get that all the time: "what did you say your name was"?) I am bearing my load with all the chagrin required for my station in life.
You see, theres this shallower end of my existence where a nice subplot brewing in my life remains template ready for Ben Stiller him self to play me in a movie already
- lols)....perhaps I can even suggest a tentative title" How the Net ruined my life? :) -,..but this is pretty standard life apace for living in
sunny (ahh I love the strikeout feature) rainy Vancouver, a place where there really is NO WINTER. What we have from say -,..about December to May-,.. can only be called an extended rainy season. Not that I do not do my part to promote this jewel of the Pacific to visit or live here. Everyone knows the place to really EXPERIENCE winter is Whistler Village.
But lately I have been in the dual quandry funk of dealing with a bout of unemployment AND this jacket sopping consistently umbrella toting inducing weather. People here tend to put up or shutup, and I know I would not be the first (nor the last) to complain of David Duchovny Syndrome.
So I will say this much already, that rain is great! I love the rain, too! Truly I do. But when the concrete jungle of iron and glass and grey concrete juxtapositioned against a grey sky, with daylights edge nixed out with the oncoming glare of street lamps and car headlights mixes with a mingled memory of plugged drainways, flooded parking lots and grumpy people, my love on a lease seeks the pleasant pastures of what all this rain is good for: growing greenery!
Pardon the picture and excuse to offer up some humor. More to be serious here, in my experience, there is no better place on earth to experience rain than places like Deep Cove, Horseshoe Bay, Lighthouse Park and North Vancouver, Caplilano Park. I just do not have easy access to these delight filled and wonderful places right now!
But thanks to certain playful friendly helpful people (now theres a new acronym for you : 'P H F P' 's !! ) I rarely now have to spell out my Germanesque sounding name, nor rarely have to even mention my native heritage (they can see it in my green eyes:))
So if in fact you are looking for a new hire, why not give this blogger a chance in person rather than speculating about or gaping at these holes online this so-called net-life that has subcompacted my off-work life for me (and I did not even need to do anything!).
Even I can find a thing or two online that disrupts my linear thinking process. Like just check these guys out, for instance; would you? http://knowitallgroup.com/employment-screening/
recently covered in a news story by ABC news dot com.
Do you notice they list clients in Canada? What would a Philly USA based company know about getting dirt or ways to keep your company clean that a Canadian company would not?
It just makes you wonder is all I am saying. (I'll bet had such wayward thoughts in between conversations with his publisher and agent, right, jah?)
esp once you discover they only highlight hyperlink to two known industries: casinos and government. Surprising? Yes, curious but yet: not!
On his way to work or-,...but at least...
safe, warm and dry! But happy? What does the camera-,.. ? Thus the Internet is not an exactly well-known known truth purveyor, either. From Snopes to 'The Onion' and misinformation feeds and all points inbetween, I decry all the repeated emphasis on that which makes up for a persons otherwise private and leisure time guarantees a consistent faithful and loyal employee any which way the coin is tossed. The real world is crueller than that.
I hazard a guess that no one will be heard bellowing down hallways or over Skype: "Gget me a new employee and quit wasting your time checking out their social life and frittering away on Twitter feeds!"-,...anytime soon. But-,...
Even if It Enrages Your Boss, Social Net Speech Is Protected
