So. I interviewed for this job on Wednesday. The one I *didn't* get last time, the one I angsted about and is responsible for the fact that I spent a *lot* of money on home entertainment equiptment in January. It went okay, I think, and I walked in and saw the interviewer and the PM of another group sitting there, and thought, crap, I'm doomed. Because--the Big Boss of another office? Yeah, this would help me relax.

I walked in armed with a kind of not-giving-a-shit--my PM asked me to be rep for our office to a meeting about issues with the new computer system we're using. I had two new clerks to train. People at the office had an odd idea that I knew what I was doing. And I bought a new dress and shoes to commemorate my bonus, and I felt like, really, my entire self-worth was not riding on this moment. My shoes rocked. They really did.

Then I went to Thundercloud Sub and bought brownies and cookies and a sandwich, to complete my ritual. Ate the brownie. Ignored the egg salad.

At five, while doing set-up for the next day, my supervisor paged me to her office, where she handed me the phone. I had the job.

Yes, so you can say, I had a good day yesterday.

Student loan consolidation is still giving me crap, but right now? I am going to training mid-month and I am *happy* with the world. I am *blissful* with the world. I *like* the world a lot. I want to buy it smiley faces and brownies and write it long romance novels full of angst and true love. Because the world is just that cool.

I also need a beta, if I can ever get out of this weird--and let me say this again, *weird*--block I have with this idiotic story. God, I hate trying to write for an unfamiliar fandom. It just makes me itch. Itch, itch, itch. *sighs* Plus, you know, unfamiliar canon. Or any canon, for that matter. Gah.

Stupid non-sense-making story.

But! Job! More money! Whee!

Eeeeeeeeeee! Congratulations! That's so great.

*hugs* Thanks, sweetie. I'm all floaty.

Wheee!

yay for you!

*dances*

It was obviously the shoes that clinched the deal *g*

It was *totally* those impulse bought shoes. I love my shoes. I need more shoes, to continue the wonder. I really, really do.

*hugs hard*

Dear God, Jenn, congratulations!

I already had you pegged as doing well, but now this? You get the next step up? *dances* So glad there's hope. I will hold onto your example, and chant "I think I can, I think I can."

Oh, and btw, I have one of my fellow academics reading your fic. He read "Sleep While I Drive." Loved it. Now he's reading "Three Impossible Things." Same story. He'll cream when he learns you write QaF, which I also turned him onto. Hee! In my dream life, I introduce the two of you, and he goes on and on about how exactly right you get the gay while you beam serenely, thinking "I know. Bow down before me." And then all your fics end up in lit anthologies, so you get rich, rich, rich....

*hugs*
D.

It's *weird* I just knew when I left that interview that I didn't get it. I *knew* it. It was just so strange. Then my supervisor calls and Kim tells me over the phone and literally, I just stood there, completely unmoving, thinking, okay, she has to be joking, I was interviewed this *morning*.

In my dream life, I introduce the two of you, and he goes on and on about how exactly right you get the gay while you beam serenely, thinking "I know. Bow down before me." And then all your fics end up in lit anthologies, so you get rich, rich, rich....

*collapses*

I have the best time in your dream life. *Man*.

*Hugs hard* You so rock, sweetie. Thank you so much. I'm all glittery and weird right now, because seriously, I almsot dn't believe this happened.

*does the dance of shock*

new job....way to go!!!

congratulations on the new job Jenn, well done, it is great to see you so happy with the world .....which story are you stuck on by the way?

Re: new job....way to go!!!

Thank you! *hugs*

And. *deep breath* RPS. *Bad* RPS, in which canon is--what the hell is canon? I'm using *interviews* and *articles* for canon. This kind of adjustment is just--I have no idea.

*sighs* Of all the things to fall into....


Congrats on the job! I hope you'll have fun with it!

*grins* Oh hell yes. I plan to love every second.

Thanks! *hugs*

Congratulations! Are you giving two weeks' notice at your current job? I hope they don't give you grief for leaving.

Yay for new job!


It's at teh same agency, so they encouraged it. My boss was thrilled. So is everyone else, except everyone else at front desk, who are all new and freaking out that they'll be left alone with the front desk without me, since I was the most experienced. I'm requesting that I come back to this office, though, to work. I love my place a lot. *grins*

Thanks! *hugs*

*glows* I'm still blissing out on it.

*hugs hard* Thanks so much!

Woo! *does happy dance on your behalf*

Congrats, honey! And, err, what fandom are you trying for here? *shifty eyes* I know an obscure one or two.

*snickers*

Popslash. At least read-only so far. Mostly read-only. Maybe some dribbling.

Congrats! Glad to hear you're going up!
