I have to say, Patricia really found a great bunch of people to work with, and I’m glad I had a chance to interview there. I would say that I am at least being considered for the position, but I suspect they’ll hire somebody they have to train less, being quite practical people. I actually enjoyed the interview process which is … you know, unusual. I don’t know when they are likely to call back but I am not concerned. If I get the job, I’ll be happy and if I don’t get the job I’ll be not quite as flush, but still happy.
1.8 hours last night and it would have been longer but I had to get up and boot Margot out of my room, and I couldn’t fall back asleep until I took the mask off. Sheesh. Still, much better rested this morning, har har.
X Company continues to be really entertaining and full of moral quandaries regarding spying and working behind enemy lines. I am very much enjoying Evelyne Brochu’s performance and was interested to hear she’s in Orphan Black. Jeff didn’t enjoy it so we quit watching but I’m thinking I might like another crack at it.
There is a new Belgian Style brewery with taphouse up Production Way and Paul and I are going to inspect it for worthiness at some point soon.
I light a candle for Jeff and JeriLynn C for their successful move (they got hardly any notice, and stressed about it as would I, and as I DID the last time it happened to us) and for Tom and Peggy and their new grandbaby Josie (whom I greatly look forward to meeting) and for Brooke who AS USUAL provides good advice, her second lot in as many months and what a difference taking that advice has made to my comfort, Cthulhu bless the pharmacists. I light a candle for one of my friends who is having an exceedingly difficult time with her current spouse regarding custody arrangements. With permission, he took his children out of the country on vacation. Without permission, he kept them an additional week and said ‘we already agreed on that’ when HOLY DIPSHIT there’s nothing in the emails to suggest he was going to give her a heart attack by pulling this stuff. What he doesn’t know about his current legal situation is vast in expanse, and of course she’ll be elected queen bitch of the universe before this is all over, but I have been watching the situation unfold for many years now and she has lived up to her promise not to prevent access to this crazy ass guy just because he’s crazy. I light a candle for Tammy, who got a glowing recommendation letter (yay…. but the job market does not magically get better, so I light a further candle for her job luck). I light a candle for Chipper, just because I can, and because a couple of times in the last month she’s made me laugh so hard on the phone I’ve nearly sprang a rib. I light a candle for Jeff, who is awesome, and loaned me his car yesterday which improved my mood for the interview, and another for Buster, who has a butt problem of some kind, but hey, those carpets go through the wash, and thank you mOm for making them. I light a candle for Katie, who is negotiating going back to work in May, and for Keith, who still hasn’t talked to me about whatever dreadful advice / scolding he threatened to drop on me. I’m no longer appalled. The longer he waits the funnier this is going to be, and even if the joke’s on me I intend to enjoy it. Okay here’s one for Paul, who gets me off my duff and into the sun, and much the same for Mike, who wrote a lovely recommendation letter for me, the dear lad, and here’s a big candle for all the elders at church, who are my role models (as are the fOlks) for getting old, and for the minister, not that she particularly needs it, and for everybody who’s ever served me food and drink, and for the Fraser River, and for the memories of Grandad, Grampa, Grandma, Granny, Sue, Elizabeth, Dave, John, Derry, Michael and Bounce.
I think today I’ll sort papers and clean out the fridge and if it stays nice maybe go for a bike ride and pick up kitty malt – Margot really needs it and the current tube is just about done.
