Job Interview.

I have to say that Google Street View has worked wonders for my irrational fear of driving in unfamiliar areas.  I loaded up the Gmaps and did the street view and was like 'hmmm, I can so handle that.'  And I did.  West Allentown is a nice area.  At least from what I could tell. 

I arrived 15 minutes early and went in 10 minutes before the appointment.  I did not see the hiring manager until 25 minutes after I was done filling out the app.

It was an okay interview.  I was not sure what I was actually interviewing for, as the ad was sparse, and the manager admitted as much.  I winged it.  They had mentioned templates, and I was thinking they wanted C++ templates, but I was determined to go on about web framework templates.  Turns out it was more related to web base templates, but based on the software they use.  There doesn't seem to be much programming at all, even so this is a supervisory position.

In other interviews that were more managerial, I've generally screwed the pooch, but I think I handled today pretty well.  I was the last interviewee in round one.  Round two would be with the big boss.  I don't think I'll get to round two, even with my small bit of $industry experience, but it was still good to have an interview where I didn't completely screw every thing up.

Seems I'm going to have tooth issues for the holidays.  Well except that I've been delaying the inevitable anyway.  Have I mentioned my fear of dentists?  I think I've found a local who will prescribe the Atvian, and uses the nitrous.  I did the twilight sleep once for an extraction, but while it was painless, it left me meh.  Plus I have no one to drive me home after a twilight sleep session.

I wish, wish wish, I could just get the whole tooth deal worked out.  Growing old is going to suck, as I hate needles, getting blood drawn makes me very very woozy.  I would love to donate blood, but well.  No.  Even thinking about it makes me anxious.

I need to pack as I am heading home for the holidays.

Wearing my suit today has reminded me how much weight I've lost.  The top button was not as tight as I had remember, and the collar fit better.  Worse, the pants are really fucking big on me.  I should look at the big and tall shop when I am on vacation here.

Anyway need to finish things.

I find that the interviews that I feel I did poorest at are the ones where I get the job.

I got creeped out just reading the signs.

But needles are necessary. You learn to focus on other things when the poke you in arm for the 9th time.

A purpose gives you a reason to wake up every morning.
So a purpose is like a box of powdered donut holes?

I lay down and 4 hours pass by lm (2.00 / 0) #3 Wed Dec 23, 2009 at 07:54:50 PM EST
I usually call that sleep. Sometimes it overflows to five hours, or as many as six. And, on the weekends, maybe even seven or eight.

There is no more degenerate kind of state than that in which the richest are supposed to be the best.

But when I nap like that, all lucid like, it's odd.
