I’ve lived in Los Angeles almost a year now. It was bound to happen at some point, but I’m just happy the weather makes me near-comotose and nonreactionary.

I had an interview for a consulting gig today. After going over my professional history and accomplishments, the interview closed with the following:

“I just have to ask. What is your sign?” the 40-something, female interviewer asked.

“I’m an Aquarian. January 24th,” I replied.

“I knew it. You have a creativity about you and you understand the big picture,” she stated.

Was I astrologically profiled? I guess I shouldn’t care since I got the business, but it is probably a good thing I didn’t reveal the fact I share the same birthday as John Belushi.

They’ll figure that out soon enough.
