Missed One

Well, I blew it. Last night I couldn't tear myself away from preparing for a job interview to spend just two minutes posting about the heirloom tomatoes we ate last night. All in all, I think it was time better spent. Now it's a waiting game because after tomorrow's candidate, the hiring manager is going on vacation for a week.

The interview went really well from my perspective. I had a huge portfolio of my work, and I'm going to start carrying it around with me all the time. Apparently I can carry on an articulate conversation when I have visual reminders right next to me. But for the life of me, I had the most difficulty remembering the word "program." I hope they don't think I'm some kind of twit.

They had good answers to my questions too, and concerns I had about the job initially have been allayed.

Because you've come to know and expect my entirely clumsy behavior, I will close as I did when I left the august and historical building where I interviewed. I missed a step on the way out and took a header down the stone stairs. Fortunately nothing broke. My knee is terribly scraped. The good news is that this was a little like "A Girl Walks Out of a Bar," because they had said good bye to me inside and no one saw it. Phew. At least they know I didn't have anything to drink at lunch!

Oh your poor knee....methinks you should stay seated and away from sharp implements? Much much luck on the new job front. Fingers are crossed for you to hear good news.

Thinking good luck thoughts for you hun! Good idea about carrying around your portfolio too. I've been reading about people who creat their own luck this week and that sounds like the sort of thing a lucky gal would do! :)

I hate steps, I can't go down them without holding onto the handrail or going v.slowly if there isn't one - fell once, missed the last step and badly sprained my ankle.

creat? Obviously lucky people can spell and type...

Good God Girl! Did the "finger" survive the fall? I hope all is Ok.
Good luck on the job hunt!

An interview is WAY more important than NaBloPoMo! Fingers are crossed for you.

Oh my, oh my. We must be sisters under the skin or some such thing. I'm just glad I'm not all alone out here in Clumsyland. :)

Here's hoping the interview pays off! This morning I shut my middle finger in the freezer door. I haven't fallen lately though (knock on wood!).
