Holy shit! I have an interview for my dream job!!

As you may remember, we were bought out effective July 1, and they have all these plans for me that they think I like, but in actuality, they blow. So I was putting my feelers out on Friday evening and found a Clinical Research Associate position at a local hospital. I thought, "I'm probably under-qualified, but what the hell?" I come home from work yesterday and have a message that the physicians are interested in meeting with me and would like to set up an interview. I was so excited I was shaking! This job would kick massive ass! I would be using my mad librarian skillz to help ER docs to research. I didn't get the message till after 5 yesterday, so I have to call after 8 this morning to set it up, but it just so happens that I took off Friday and Monday since Rusty came home. Everything's coming up Jenny!

It wouldn't be me without the downsides: I have to treat very lightly at work about this because with the merger they have to get rid of some people. They're not getting rid of me, but if this got out to the wrong people, well... Also, I have to go buy appropriate interview attire and I'd rather be torn limb-from-limb by a pack of wolves than go clothes shopping. I had 3 dreams about this last night: 2 were that I didn't get the job and 1 was that it only paid $20K. Wish me luck/pray/meditate/send me good vibes; I'll keep you posted!

On another note, I'm going to copy B. and open the blog to any questions about anything. I read March's questions to her and was like, "I want to answer those questions!" So ask away!

If you had to change the name of your blog, what would you change it to?

Name 3 things you can do better than the average person.

Congrats and much luck! I just got a new job too! Let's squee together. I'm finally working in a library. If I can do it, you can too! I, too, had to go emergency clothes shopping and ended up wearing a monkey suit (I mean it looked ridiculous) but it got me the job! So you'll be fine.
