I'm happy to say that I think my interview for the library assistant position (and senior library assistant) went well. I hesitate to say so because the last time that happened I didn't get either of the jobs I interviewed for. Hmmphf. It's not a lot of money, but it would be comparable to what I'd make part-time teaching at the college. The pluses: it's 10 miles from home, there's insurance, the people are nice, and I'd have my very own office! So, we'll see. I'll decide when I find out if they even wanna offer me the job.
Most exciting part of the day: the typing test! I actually took my first typing test, and I officially type 72 words per minute. I thought I was in that range, but it's nice to have confirmation. Why do I give a damn? Gotta be good at something!
How's my head you ask? Still full of snot and more than a little achey at the moment. My bed is calling.
The lovely and rockin' Chris from Book-a-Rama recently tagged me with a meme that involves giving blog tips, and after rattling my puny little brain, I honestly can't think of anything constructive to add. My friend, TheOtherFeminist, has asked me numerous times what it takes to become a blog cult leader (her term, not mine...don't drink the Kool-Aid!), and I simply reply: read blogs and comment, then write something mildly snarky a couple of times a week. It works for me, but it's already been said in slightly more tactful, insightful ways than I can offer.
Coming up tomorrow: some questions from Johnny Yen, discussion of the final stage of my damn thesis (technical term) and maybe some bitchings about Harold Bloom. We'll see what moves me.
