Whups (Recovered from LiveJournal)

I've already started to slack, hunh? Not a good sign. But I had a good reason for yesterday's lack of an update; I was off interviewing for that job I mentioned before.

I'm more convinced than ever that position's ideal for me, having met the senior designer I'd be working with and seen the environment I'd be calling my own. He did say there have been several others interviewing for the position, including three today, but if I don't get the job I'd be really interested in meeting the person who did. I don't know if that sounds conceded or not, but that's just how I'm feeling about the interview. I left with a really good feeling about things.

On the way back home, I passed a used video game dealer, which meant that I certainly had to stop in and see what they had to offer. About three minutes later I emerged victorious, a used copy of Power Stone for the Dreamcast under my arm. It was absolutely pouring rain outside, and by the time I sprinted the three feet to my car, unlocked the door and entered, I was drenched. The downpour was fierce enough to slow traffic on I-69 down to 35 mph.. half what the usual speeds read like on that highway.

When I got home, Autumn and I drove to the far south side of Muncie to pick up a pizza at one of the last remaining Little Caesar's in existence. That beef and mushroom pizza is just incredible.

The evening slid back into the rut we've dug afterwards, as I planted myself in front of the Dreamcast and Autumn sat, reading, on the couch behind me.

I haven't mentioned my interview to the parents yet, I'm hoping to wait until I actually have the job to mention it to them. My father would just go insane, telling me what I should or shouldn't do and how I should or shouldn't do it, if he knew I had a potential job on the horizon. I'm glad he's trying to use his connections to land me something, but this is something I really want to do on my own. Of course, if it turns out that I don't get this job, well... I'll be in a melluva hess then. But let's just pretend like that isn't a possibility. There are always lucrative jobs in the dishwashing industry I can fall back on.

Today's bound to be humdrum. More HTML scripting, perhaps a break to pick up some comics, and a King of the Ring preview to write. Nothing much on the schedule for the rest of the week.
