I am tired of waiting

I can only do interview prep in small spurts without freaking out. That's ok, because I have weeeeks and months and years before this thing comes up. And then I will have to wait even more, unless I bomb the interview so badly I know it's all over right then and there. But obviously I don't hope for that.

I skipped my workout today. Haven't been sleeping too well and I didn't want to bother getting up this morning.

My neighbors have cats. They are huge and orange and quite cute. I should snap a picture of them for you. Sometimes when I walk past the window one will run up and *plomp* leap onto the back of the sofa that is up against that wall. Then he pokes his face through the bottom of the horizontal blinds to get full information about What Is Happening Out There, which I know cats have to be on top of at all times. Then I will hear a rumbling and a *PLOMP* and the hugest orange stripey cat you have ever seen will have himself onto the sofa back, making the entire apartment shake gently. Then they will both stare at me intently.

Today they are playing with a jingle ball in the bathtub next door. I can hear it. (Our bathrooms must back up against each other.) I left the door open after showering and my cats are fascinated by all these strange noises that sound like pouncing and jingling and yet they can't see anything. Ghost cats! I like watching their fascination. If there was any way to have cat play dates, I'd be all for it. Except that bringing new cats into a cat's home territory often provokes litterbox problems, so I'm not really for it at all.

I think you are having the equivalent of cat play dates.. when their cats play, yours are amused and probably vice versa.

I swear ours have play dates with the birds and squirrels. They are always looking out the spare room window at the same time each day.

Don't discount totally bombing an interview. I really messed up a phone interview, I KNEW I did horrendous. A month later I was ask for an on campus interview. Can't explain it.

Well, ok, but nobody *plans* to bomb an interview like that's a good thing, right? :)
