mood takes a u-turn

here was bitching that I cut out.

Change moods.

Okay, forget that. Forget it. I started this entry too early. Because my mood just took a leap for the ether. *grins* Ask me why.

I have an interview on Monday for this job--this job I WANT. Not just one I have to do, not just annoying tempness, but a job-job, with such esoteric things as benefits and dental insurance and this wonderous thing called a REGULAR PAYCHECK that gets deposited in one's account where one can get the money out later and use it. And not ONLY these things. Because these things alone do not make a jenn happy, though the prospect of buying these boots I've been contemplating are quite the thing. Not to mention the prospect of a new computer, which I need desperately.

This one is one I WANT. I know this stuff. And it's state, so it's viciously comfortable and regular, as I have worked in it before and I actually DO know what policy is and what I'll be doing.

Fuck bad mood and cramps and my lack of chocolate. And screw temper tantrums and fannish politics and the sheer lack of coffee in the house right now.

Will not get too excited. Because I might not get it.

Forget that, too. I'm allowed to be completely elated without any actual reason to be. I'm perfectly ready to concede misery next week if I don't get it, but until then? Heh. Meaningless elation.

The woman who will interview me was enthusiastic as heck, and apparently went through several people trying to find my current phone number. I got my evaluation a while back but really didn't think much on it since there was a huge pool, but apparently, my percentile was highest in the group of interviewees, and what the HELL, you know, I'm happy. Happy happy happy happy happy.

I AM breathing! But dammit, I haven't had a job I liked in forever.

And new computer. With capture software and a new monitor and those boots...though I don't think Dell will give me boots with the computer I want.

Um. Right.

fleurbleue makes a gorgeouscover for Six AM. *staring* Honey, that's hot. Hot hot hot. Dear God.

I'm sure I'm missing something. Fannish war, gripeyness, something, but right now? Do. Not. Care. Rivers run wine, candy falls from the sky, puppies have been found after a long search, and I have one beta for Somewhere and Gladly Beyond from Ann on my hard drive, ready to start the fixing.

And love to girlinthetrilby and thete1 and devinmoonshine and schmevil and pearl_o who have been putting up with my high-snark, low-nice, icky-bad-bitchy mood all this week. I'll make it up to you. Possibly with advanced groveling.

Sweetie, I'm crossing my fingers hoping you'll get the job!

You should ask and if they don't, complain to those intern guys on TV.


Thanks! *huggles*

You should ask and if they don't, complain to those intern guys on TV.

And they're cute, too. Hmmm.......

Big boatloads of love to you, Jenn.

Aww, thanks, chica. *hugs hard*

So. Written anything--say, mildy insane and trapped behind Big Mean Bars recently?

*whistles and wanders off*

That's great! Good luck with the interview. I'll keep my fingers crossed. :)

Hee! *hugshugshugs* Thank you. It's--just so energizing. *happy sigh*

In France, we say "touchons du bois!" (touch wood).And yes, boots are a great motivation.*hugs*

I am SO writing that down!

*hugs* Thanks. And yep, these boots are just--guh. Best. Boots. Ever. Okay, to me. *grins*

Yay percentiles. That's fabulous news, Jenn. I'm hoping you get it. And the boots. *g*

*hug* Thanks!

They're SUCH cool boots! I can see them on my feet now....

(Deleted comment)
*hugs* Thank you!

Break legs on Monday!!! But, please, not literally!

*pout* Does it count if I DON'T get the job?

*grins and hugs more*

*hugs hard* Thanks. Mighty fine boots. *happy sigh*

oooo!

Good luck Jenn! I have everything crossed for you.

*hugshugshugs* Thanks so much!

Though wow, that must be uncomfortable! *grins*

*hugs more*

Yeah, I'm in the bizarre zone.

yay for the interview!

Good luck - they would be fools not to take you!



fingers and toes will be crossed for you!

Re: yay for the interview!

*hugs* Thanks very much.

*looks at toes* Okay, HOW do you do that? I can just get my big toes to work, but just barely. Stupid toes.

*resents toes a little*

It's like a yoga discipline

The art of toe crossing and mortorcycle maintenance *g*

don't fret - crossing metaphorical toes works just as well.

*g*

Positive waves, baby - positive waves!

The woman who will interview me was enthusiastic as heck, and apparently went through several people trying to find my current phone number.

oh jenn, that sounds really, really positive! I sincerely doubt she'd go through so much effort to try to get in contact with you if she wasn't seriously interested. Best of luck to you on the interview!! And I'll be very jealous of you when you get that new comp and capture software... *g*

*hugs* thank you so much.

*breathes* Just. Have to be calm and not scare her by, you know, overenthusiasm. *grins*

But mmmm. Boots.

*hugs more*

mm, no, do not scare her. Think zen thoughts. ohm... ohm... must get boots... ohm... control the eye twitch... ohm... maintain calm... ohm... MUST get boots... *g*

{{hugs back}} I'll be crossing everything I can for you!

*sends jenn a luck whammy*

*hugs* Thanks very much.

Mmm. Luck Whammy.

much luck with that job interview Jenn! It's tough to find a job with benefits, good pay AND that one likes, believe me I know.

Keeping my fingers crossed.

oh yeah. Completely threw me when I found out--seriously, I gave up on this one months ago. So. You know. Almost sure at first it was a huge hallucination. Which you know, as hallucinatons go? Not so bad. Then I realized no fictional characters were having sex on the floor near me, so huh, reality it must be.

*grins* My head gets weird in moments like this.

*hugs* Thank you for the good wishes.

Good Luck!!
