    Still might be psychologically good for you, in the absence of opportunity to go outside?

    And YAY interview!! I'll be crossing my VFF-toes for ya!

    • Yogalates (I think that's how you spell it) for an hour after work.
      Dinner: Crock pot beef roast over Boston lettuce, green leaf lettuce, and spinach. Topped with cauli, broccoli, tomato, and green bell sauteed in butter and crockpot juices. Dressed with crockpot juices reduced down with garlic red wine vinegar.
      Dessert: Geek bought baklava, so I had to try a piece.

        Thanks for all the support, ladies! I plan on kicking ass in the interview.
        Jenny, you have a valid point. I'm just too cheap/ poor to buy the lamp at the moment to run a pricey experiment.

        • Just a desk lamp from home with a daylight bulb might be nice? The bulbs aren't TOO expensive? (as opposed to the whole official expensive Ott light.) No pressure obviously, just brainstorming aloud here.

          Whenever I get to feeling that way I open the lid of my reef aquarium at home, which has high-output blue actinic and daylight bulbs. It's like a frickin' religious experience, it's so bright. Whew!!

            Would a full-spectrum lamp designed for sewing do the same thing (ie, Ott knock-off)? If so, I have one Naiad can borrow for a bit and test out.

              • I'm guessing you don't want a literal answer, and a hug could make it hurt worse...

                            • Shoulder's better today, but still takin pain meds.
                              I went and found out there 5 other people in the running for this job. I was the 4th interview, he hasn't had a chance to look at the other 2 resumes, so there's a chance they could just get tossed for being unqualified. One of those people is from NY, so they'd hafta pay relo fees for that person. I'm already in the area. I'm notoutright depending on or expecting this job to go through, but I'm figuring it's highly likely that it will.
