"...another reason I'm intrigued with the hanged of Salem, especially the women, is that a number of them aroused suspicion in the first place because they were financially independent, or sharp-tongued, or kept to themselves. In other words, they were killed off for the same sort of life I live right now but with longer skirts and fewer cable channels." Sarah Vowell, The partly cloudy patriot.

Much sympathy. I hate going through the interviewing process - it's so much energy to apply and wait and talk and consider. I really am sorry, Shrinky.

Thanks everyone!

Is everyone's gmail down, or is it just mine?

B*: thank you so much for the conditioner sample! I'd gmail you - but it's not working :(

Why oh why is there no ice cream here in which for me to drown my sorrows? B* - please to bring over homemade ice cream :)

It kind of sucks too because the director left a message on my voicemail today (the day they were to make an offer - and then they were going to check references - so I assumed I would not be *rejected* until the first person's references had been called). When I saw them on the caller id, I thought for sure I'd gotten it. And she at first just said for me to call her. Then she said, "Well, I won't keep you in suspense. We made an offer to someone else." That's so mean! I was their second choice - or so she said. And she said if they had another position, they'd offer it to me in a minute. Whatever.

I would definitely bring over ice cream, but I think it would melt before I get there.

Hugs sweetie!

That is so mean to leave a message like that. And then to say "Oh if we had another position..." just adds salt to the wound!
