Today is job interview day for a nice promotion at work. I've been studying the skills I'll need for the new position every night for weeks and have spent a lot of time brushing up my interview skills so I feel like I've done everything I can to prepare. All I need now are the well-wishes (or snarky comments, your choice) from my Chit Chat pals!

I feel like my odds are pretty good since the manager of that team specifically asked me to apply and there is already a job posting for my current position - but still, I don't want to take anything for granted.

As I know you personally, I can safely say that your best bet is to simply not be yourself. Pretending to be anyone else should help your odds considerably.

That's what I do every day at work. (For example: "Why yes, boss, I would love to play Monopoly at your house.")

I think that all right-thinking people in this country are sick and tired of being told that ordinary, decent people are fed up in this country with being sick and tired. I’m certainly not, and I’m sick and tired of being told that I am.

The job interview mostly consisted of standing at a white board for an hour getting grilled about the finer points of SQL knowledge. It was pretty intense and no one asking me questions used the fact that I am friends with them as an excuse to hold back any punches. By the way, what is it about standing in front of a white board that can make you forget simple things like "Begin Transaction" and "End Transaction?" shake

Anyway, my manager sent me a note this morning saying "Congratulations on passing the SQL Torture Test!" Phew!

It still hasn't been made official yet - but it sure sounds like I'm in!

Ummm... I'm not sure being on call 24 hours a day is going to help my gaming time.
