Say a little...

... wish that the best works out for me tomorrow, won't you? I'm not a believer but if you are, a prayer is very welcome too!

I'm off in less than six hours to another city for the day. For an interview, you see. I've barely been looking for a job and I'm quite astonished that this lead has gone so far, so quickly, and so seemingly neatly. It's unbelievable actually, especially since anything and everything was so difficult to get done all of last year. And honestly, I cannot describe just how enthralled I am with this opportunity and how much I am looking forward to getting the job. In fact, in all excitement and trepidation, from pattering peacefully like a penguin, I have been jumping around like a crazed cat. The poor ex-reviewer went mad trying to get me to sit still on the bike. This is certainly to say nothing of the poor man going cross-eyed simply trying to talk to me this evening!

And now, as you can see, I am completely unable to sleep. But I should get to bed... not a good idea to tire myself out, no? I need to be bright-eyed and bushy-tailed in the morning, if you will forgive the god-awful cliché. I'm all packed, notes to wow the potential employers and a day's travel essentials in place. Details when I'm back, of course — with good news hopefully . *deep breath* Now to sleep.

One last thing in case you're interested. The article's still not done. No surprises there I know, but I did discover this nice one about writing for a grant though. B, you might be interested. :-)

a prayer duly sent upward. may the benign Saraswati finally introduce you to her sister Lakshmi, and keep you inebriated and rolling in filthy lucre.

Thanks, you two!

I've got to admit, it was weirdest interview I've ever had. I have absolutely no clue about the outcome yet... will find out by the middle of next week. By then, I will most certainly have driven myself mad with the anticipation. Tch... TCH!! :-)

And Nocturne, my dear, I've been assured that there will be precious little lucre - will rely on job satisfaction to keep me going!

Well, I've got the job and am still jumping around like a woman crazed!! I'm going to spend most of my days being surrounded by books. You see, I'm going to be merchandiser for a book store!! :-)

*jumping madly*
