Follow-Up Friday with a side of AWESOME.

So yours truly had her very first job interview in over five years today. And yours truly was extremely nervous about same. I'm happy to report that I ROCKED IT!!

That's it. End of entry.

OH, you want more? Alright fine, twist my arm.

All kidding aside folks, I don't think I've ever interviewed as well as I did today. I was very much at ease, and feel I said all the right things at all the right moments. There were two people interviewing me, the head of HR and the CEO of the company, who would become my boss were I to be hired. Both were really nice and the CEO totally reminded me of my boss at the firm (in all the good ways, that is). Anyway, the company sounds like a great place to work, and the job sounds interesting and I think I could not only do the job well, but actually really enjoy working there. I liked them, and I really think they liked me. I basically walked out of there feeling like I did all I could, and if I don't get this job, then it simply wasn't meant to be, but it's not due to my screwing up the interview.

Anyway, they didn't really say "when" I'd hear back, but as I was walking out with the HR lady I said it was a pleasure to meet her and looked forward to hearing from her, and she said something like "We will definitely call you". So, I am not going to do that whole "counting chickens before they hatch" thing, but I feel pretty good about this.

I've already sent off my thank you notes, so now it is out of my hands and into God's. If it is meant to be, then it will be, and if not, well then, that's just the way the cookie crumbles, isn't it?

Thank you all for your prayers and good luck wishes and vibes though. I have no doubt they helped tremendously.

And now I was going to do a whole follow-up Friday post, but mom wants me to head over to tell her all about my interview so instead I leave you with this VERY RANDOM question:

Thong underwear, yay or nay?

I said it was random. I'll elaborate more at a later date, I promise.

See you all tomorrow for Photo Hunter.

Awesome. I hope they call you back!

Thong underwear? No way. I just don't like the feeling that there is something riding up my butt. I like the feeling of coverage.

So glad you had a good interview.
As for the thing underwear - well if you got the booty for it - why not?

wonderful. You may find yourself working before you'd had a chance to take your breath.

as for thong underwear. Under where?
snort. Maybe to floss my teeth.
(I'm too old to even consider it)

Awesome!!!!!!!!!! So happy you've at the *very* least had a positive experience to outweigh all the crap lately :)

As for thong underwear, well, I think I've actually grown out of it (and no, not literally, see below!).

I loved it (certain brands/types) when I was in my early and mid-20s, but toward 28 or so, it just felt uncomfortable.

And no, that had nothing to do with the size of my arse as it actually got smaller in those years!

It's a young woman's game, as far as I'm personally concerned, but if a woman of any age loves it, I say have at it ;)

Glad the interview went well, you're right if it is meant to be it will happen. If not, you know your interviewing skills are in tune.

Thong, yay or nay? I too have grown out of it, literally and figuratively.

Glad to hear your interview went super! You have a good outlook on it too. I really, really, REALLY hope they call you!!!

Thongs? No Way in HELL! I've tried 'em and they just feel too weird. BUT, to each her own!
