    Interview went well. They had the standard company boiler plate, and then their own questions. I answered the less comfortable ones with what I thought was class and honesty, but we'll see what they think. Supposedly, they'll get back to me within a week. They took me to a fancyish mexican food place and there was a meal that was completely primal, or would've been, if I'd had the sense to leave the rice and chips alone. Steamed tilapia coated in ranchero sauce with steamed veggies (broc, bell pepper, carrot, summer squash), lime rice (Rice cooked in lime tasting broth.) And a handful of chips. (Twibble- Tilapia Veracruz, if you go to the one near where you used to live.)
    Now, it's naptime before I continue writing my SER.

    I'm not sure which restaurant you're talking about. If it's grandfather's, they basically tell me I can eat salad. They won't verify that ANYTHING else is safe.
    Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

    If I wanted to listen to an asshole, I'd fart.

    Glad the interview went well, but you don't seem excited, so that makes me think you subconsciously don't think it went that well... Do you think they'll call with an offer?

    Twibble- It is grandfather's, and what they said may've been a CYA.
    Jenn- I'm actually really excited, just trying not to get my hopes up too far. They did ask about why I left my previous employer, and I did give as honest an answer as I could without trashing the company. I think they'll make me an offer (I hope), but I'm not putting everything on it. (Yes, they paid for lunch. I don't think I want to go there again, as I think I got cottonseeded by something and the wait staff is a bit TOO deferential with women- asking me first about everything, pulling out only my chair, etc.)

    ETA: I think the gods and goddesses heard my prayers about not wanting to get sick before my interviews. I'm hoping that I was just cottonseeded, but it feels like I may finally be showing symptoms of the flu Geek had. It appeared on the way home.

    Who wants to see the blanket I made for a friend's baby shower?!


    It's 4'X3' and double skeined. I'm rather proud of finishing it in a week and a half.

    Well, here in a bit, I'm off to that baby shower. It's potluck style, with comfort foods. It wouldn't surprise me if the pumpkin chocolate chip paleo bread is all I can eat. It further wouldn't surprise me to see several things that would've been primal before some well meaning soul made them "healthy." Oh well, such is life. If it's your standard cutesy baby shower I may bail early, I can only take so many mother hen activities.

    Well, the baby shower was better than I thought it's be. Cheese, lunchmeats, salamis, my stuff, fruit, and I did break down and try the hatch hominy casserole (actually pretty good, need to figure out how to primalize that.) I did however avoid the not-food (cupcakes, scones, potpie muffins) and eat only food and semifood. One of the schticks was to decorate bibs and onesies, so I made a bib that said "These fools put my cape on backward" and a onesie with "keep calm and snuggle." I think that's enough pink and cute for the day. If it weren't for the mimosa, I don't think I'd've finished out the party. She loved the blanket though, especially how thick and cozy and big it is.
