Interviews (two different ones)

So as far as I can tell, this morning's interview for the job in Kabul went well. The guy I'd be replacing (if hired) was the Marine version of a Power Point Ranger; great resume, worked for some high-powered accounting firms and Fortune 50 companies, but just didn't have the skill set to keep the books for a warehouse in Kabul. Whereas I'm exactly that kind of blue-collar down & dirty kind of bookkeeping clerk. We'll see what happens. In the meantime, I called in and got a sub teaching interview with Alexandria early in September, and we'll see how that goes when it comes around. Must remember not to do my Gunny Hartman impression.

While I was out, I returned all my library books but didn't take the USB printer cable back to Staples; probably do that tonight.

In other news, my brother finally got set up with the VA health care (thanks for nothing, IBEW, you fucking leeches, great job taking care of your members) and apparently his A1c is way higher than mine, 9.1 to be exact. Whoa.

Not much else going on; probably head out to staples tonight to get that cord returned, and try to avoid spending any money while I do it.

Bleg: any of you artists out there care to shoop my wombat icon so that it has this antenna sticking up from in back, or maybe as a background? I've had some critter from He-Man imposed on me as a Goonfleet avatar, and it's just not me.

would you be eating fresh Afghani food then?

It's a possibility, though I've had enough Afghan food since moving down here that I'm pretty sick of it. Also, all the rice & bread aren't good for me.

Oh. It looked like 9.1 in the text message you sent. vOv

Hey, it's a garrison accounting job. It's not like I'll be going on patrol with my laptop full of spreadsheets, LOL.

Also, Arlington, definitely. It is the family plot, after all. :)
