Everybody sing

So first off, I don't have a new job yet. The interview seemed to go quite well, and then I did a writing test at the end of it, and now I bloody wait and see . . . my favorite interviews are the ones that end with "you're hired" so I'll confess to being frustrated. But after overhearing me get excited to Miss T on my way out of town, the lady at the luggage desk told me she was sure I'd get the job, so I feel okay about my prospects.

Anyways, being in Montreal was nice, seeing so much of Miss T was nice (who I hadn't seen since her wedding, and very little then as she was busy getting married), that good hard shop I had on Saturday was nice - though nerve wracking as the shops closed at 5 o'fucking clock and I had had a late start - and most of all, the food was nice. Before my train yesterday I had really good pizza for the first time in a year or so. Terroni's in Toronto is okay but the crust and toppings are too salty. This place had very little salt but fresh and yummy toppings on a fucking perfect crust. No idea what it was called - close to Berri UQAM though.

I spent Saturday night cribbing for the interview but then got overwrought, so I relaxed by watching my first Bollywood movie (Miss T has a thing for them) called Tomorrow May Not Be. Wow. Its emotional relationships were created over song, dance, and people telling each other they were idiots who should shut up, and yet I spent the last half hour weeping like a baby, it was so emotionally effective. Alternating, I suppose, with the vague wish I have during every musical I watch - that the world should really be more like this, with spontaneous bursts of song and choreographed crowd sequences at any point where emotion becomes overwhelming.

Well, if the lady at the luggage desk has a good feeling, then so do I! You know, I'm always suspicious of interviews that end in "you're hired" - why are they so desperate to fill the spot?? What was the writing test about?

I haven't been to Montréal since before Tink was born. I think I'm overdue for a visit! I agree with you about the world emulating musicals more often. I think we'd all be much more emotionally stable.

Yeah, you know, it was unsettling but nice in Montreal that random people took notice. The luggage lady was really sweet and I was touched and then I gave her a couple intern sites for her daughter, who's in communications. People are nice and then one hand starts washing the other. And then we burst into song and dance.

Ha, are people not like that in T.O.? I like how February is said in Italian!

Mistress La Spliffe ha detto...

Hells no, people aren't like that here!

Congrats on the interview. I'm sure you wowed them. The wait is the hardest part. It makes you wonder - is there such thing as a better candidate than me? The answer is no. But people sometimes don't always see the world the way that I do.

Speaking of my world. It is always an instant away from breaking into song and dance when it isn't already in song and dance mode. But I don't have control over the world outside of my apartment so that one isn't as much fun.

Mistress La Spliffe ha detto...

Yes, it's the choreography that's tricky.
