The interview

My interview was at 9 a.m. today. Now that I'm unemployed, there are many days when I'm not out of bed by 9. I could have asked for a later time, but I always wake up when Wanda gets home at 6:15, and I wanted to get it over with.

I met with the woman from HR first, then I had a test to write, then I met with a development manager. I'd say the chat with the HR woman went well, but the chat with the development manager didn't go as well. (It didn't go badly, I'm just not sure I'm the right person for the job.)

The entire process took a little over 2 hours. After that, I headed home for lunch, then totaled up the cookie money from Sparks and took it to the bank. My anti-procrastination project of the day? I remembered to bring the books I had culled to donate to their book sale.

I was pretty fried by then, but I went to yet another dollar store in search of snakes. I found some cute little ones - I'm quite excited about them.


  1. That's quite a long interview. When I have one like that I need to decompress for double the time.

    And...since you were great @ recommending a place for cookie cutters...what about nozzles for pre-made icing? I didn't think to buy one [I thought the tip of the icing itself would be sufficient] when I bought the icing @ Bulk Barn [which is far, far away]. Zellers is a bust...dollar store?

  2. Dollar store might have them. Also, I'd check the grocery store - I think I've seen them there.
