oh, the weather outside is frightful

going to and from work (2 miles) wasn't bad at all. maybe 10 minutes there (instead of 5) and 20 home (instead of 10). but the roads SUCK. and so I called, and the really nice woman said she'd rather I was safe, so we could do it Thursday. She was really really nice. So I hope this next one goes well. I hope Tucker's advice is right on, that they just really want to get to know you better. In teh first interview with her, I mentioned I have great attention to detail, which is so important in knitting. Turns out she used to. She occasionaly crochets now, but not much. So there was that connection.

anyway, there were definitely drifts up to my knees when I had to wipe off the car window to leave work. sheesh. the back of our house faces East. The wind is pretty strong coming from the West, mainly, and so our entire patio on the back of the house is completely devoid of snow. It's kinda fun. Meanwhile, the front door is covered in snow, and the stairs leading up to the house barely look like steps at all. Crazy crazy!

Yay that Bezzie saw this! I was so excited to see her comment. I knew she would be excited for me, but thought she'd be too busy moving. weeeee

later gators

oh. OH!

it goes like this.

Here I am, working in the back room. Boss is somewhere in the back room as well, but at the other end of the store. I've taken to keeping my cell phone in my pocket, on vibrate. Granted, it doesn't get a signal in most parts of the store, especially for incoming calls, but it does notify my of voicemail. But it was actually RINGING today, so I looked at it, saw the number and ran off to a corner of the back room to answer.

Tyndale wants me to come back for a "second" interview, with the woman that would be my boss. Very excited. Yes, slightly nervous. What does a second one entail? I do not know. I need to review the job description and maybe come up with some questions for her. She seems to like questions.


and yet it is supposed to be blizzardy out tomorrow. grrrrr. we shall see. Hopefully it's not too bad to get there or for them to leave early or somethin.

think good thoughts!!

i tried to play with new blogger templates. but then i do lose my left sidebar, no matter how hard i try. one template has a left sidebar instead of a right one, but I wasn't able to even take elements from each and combine because they were just toooo different in the coding that I couldn't do it. i would like a new look, but it took Trevor ages to figure it out last time. And I think they do a better job of hiding things in the code with new blogger. argh. i just wanna leave blogger. but i won't pay for anything. i do like in the new templates how they have the archive in a "drop down" format. showed that i blogged 40 some odd times last year. not even once a week! but over twice a week in '05. maybe i will blog more this year. who knows. i will certainly knit a lot. i think. ugh.

it is TOO COLD. even for me. temp is -3 at the moment. wind to 20 below. mmm. supposed to be like that 'til Tuesday.

I promise pics soon. really. Hush Hush is six inches from end of stockinette. keep goin!

that's about it for now...stuck with this template for now. i don't really want to give up my two sidebars. too much info. i do like a link roll section i can add with new blogger. it would automatically update the blogs i read in alpha order. then again, i could learn to blog roll from bloglines. but i wont.
