WTG elSicomoro! Put it down to greater confidence :) I hope you get the job, if you want it (obviously they thought you could do it or they wouldn't have interviewed).

And that was my thought too...I clearly noted in my resume that I have supervised up to 40. She mentioned that I might be better off a step below the position I applied for...I told her I could do the job in question, but if she thought the step below was better, I was fine with that too.

I don't know if I'm more confident in my old age or drunk or in my Matrix zone...I had little nervousness through the whole process.

Good luck! I know if I can handle 1200, anyone can. :D

I've missed you, Sheldon.

Thanks, guys! I should know in the next few days if I'm headed to the next round.

Four years ago today, I first came to Kansas City from St. Louis. At the time, I was just coming out here on business...and for BBQ. wound up being the place where a major chapter of my life ended, and a greater one began. And I will finally meet Elspode in person tonight!

The Buddleia bush that I pruned back almost to nothing in early March, is once again in full bloom. The high summer butterflies that it attracts should be along soon.

Anyway, before and after.

Worth waiting for!

You fool, they're using you, just as they used the generations before you.
Who does all that work, cleans up the mess, and has to live with the ugly bush until it heals?
You do!
Then when it just regains it's composure the prima donna Butter-sluts swoop in, flash a little color, and slurp up free meals.
At least Fireflies would light the night, bees would leave you a little honey, even mosquitoes will sometimes make nipples bigger.
Guess who then has to do the dishes and start the cycle starts again.
You do!
Don't be a chump, stop the bush-keeper abuse, slap a VAT on their bill. :flycatch:

Spencer is staying with me for 3 days. I have to work all day every day this week cuz my counterpart is on vacation , but it's still cool to have him over.

He's doing online extra credit algebra, and his computer is giving him trouble, so I invited him to come use my gaming rig and get the class knocked out.

Got my boy back too.
Excuse the doting look on my face, I hadn't expected to be in frame, but I kept it because I hadn't realised Diz needs a proper clean-up so I didn't want too much of a close up of his face. You can't expect a charity to do everything.

Oh and mental apologies to Carol for doubting her story and thinking she was a cat-napper. She obviously just had an unlucky weekend after all.

PS. LJ, I'm not sure knocking out the rest of Spencer's class is a good precedent to set. I mean it's okay at his age, but what are you going to do when he gets to college? You might get in some lucky punches sure, but unless you have a secret stash of sarin...

My daughter is also doing an online course this summer. Economics and Personal Finance. Her HS requires at least one on-line course to graduate. I think we'll be seeing more of them too, to ease impending overcrowding issues. Interesting times.

You look so happy. And Diz looks happy to be home but also like he's planning complicated and gruesome vengeance at having been sent away in the first place.

Whoa. This is amazing to me. Online courses would save the school so much money... I wonder how long before federal/state awareness catches up to this and starts cutting back the school's funding if they're not spending it on traditional classroom settings.

I am amazed at the amount you can already do in this world online. It became obvious to me when I signed up for my electricity online 4 years ago.
