There is a bit of twitchy stress, but I'm relatively (for me) calm. I typed up my responses to some predictable questions this morning and felt excited about the ideas and opportunities that go with this job.
Then I released some anger via snippy email at an admin in my department who won't reimburse $4 in meals without a receipt. Seriously. I don't care about the money that much, but I've decided that I'll see her in hell before she wins this one. She's taken money and time from me in the past and I'm done. That was my last trip and I will make her life miserable before giving her $4. Because I'm cool and mature like that. (I do not plan to mention this little glitch on my phone interview.)
While I was reviewing my notes one more time, a friend sent a note with a job announcement attached. I kind of want that job too! So I perused a website and edited a cover letter and sent along my CV. New applications always make me feel hopeful and it's been months since I've found even a glimmer of something that sounds cool. But a final interview and new application in one day?! Well, that will cushion the blow should the former be terrible! Hooray!
That's all I know for now. Stay tuned for an evening update at which time I'll report on how the phone call went. (It starts about 2 hours from now. Positive thoughts are much appreciated. Please?)
