I had a job interview today. I think it went okay. For someone who is a pretty anxious person by nature, I don't get that nervous in job interviews, but as soon as I walk out I start second-guessing everything. It is a job I am very qualified for but I don't know what the competition is like and I said a few weird things. Ugh. I don't know. I'd really quite like the job though, and it's a permanent job
. Having one of those again would be novel.
However, if I don't get it, I have an interview next Wednesday for another job. So, things could be worse, I guess. At least I'm getting interviews.
I also made these cookies
today. I don't have the best record as far as cookies are concerned, but these turned out really nicely and are quite tasty. Chopping up chocolate pieces worked really well too as they stayed sort of melt-y in the middle for ages. Nom.
I uh may have had a few more than was good for me though because just a tiiiny bit hyped up on sugar right now.
In fandom news, Game of Thrones is back!( Game of Thrones 2x01 - I have read up to the end of AFFC but I'll try to stop myself getting too book spoilery )
Fringe was better this week, but I am at the point where if it stopped at the end of S4, I would be okay with that. I'm still enjoying it don't get me wrong, but not as much as I was and yeah, I'd be okay with that.
I am also up to date with Mad Men, but I don't have a lot to say other than I'm mostly enjoying it. Peggy <3
And I started watching Avatar: the Last Airbender with gnine
last weekend. It's so good. Sokka is my favourite so far, but Zuko is intriguing and Katara is made of awesome.
There's also hockey. Of course.
I keep having Staal thoughts and Staal theories. Eric = troll!Staal. Marc = sensible!Staal (well as sensible as a pro hockey player can be). Jordan = bro!Staal. Jared = Staal Not Appearing in this NHL. This makes sense when you consider which two Staals got arrested during Eric's bachelor party, and well, this video
. Troll!Stall and Bro!Stall trolling everyone and calling Patrick Kane a midget and circling him like sharks around a hobbit (how's that for a mental image? Wring-wraiths around a hobbit maybe?) and generally finding themselves hilarious
. I for one find it delightful, but I am not objective.
Also, the Philadelphia/Pittsburgh fight was insane. I'm torn between wanting to see them play each other in the playoffs and thinking that it would be an incredibly bad idea. I'm not a huge of fan of either team, but Claude Giroux is adorable and ginger.
I need to pick teams to follow in the playoffs too, because oh, Carolina. (Yes, I hear you, Hawks and Bruins people. We'll see. We'll see).
Random other things:
1.Gyzym's guide to reading the Discworld books is really awesome
. It also made me curious why I haven't read Thief of Time
- I really should have.
2. The Newroom trailer
- but I guess if you have any interest you've probably seen this by now. I'm cautiously optimistic, but then I also liked the pilot for Studio 60.
