gainful employment

hello darlings,

it's official, i have a job. in fact, i have The Job. those of you who've been listening to me whine on and off for the last few months can heave a sigh of relief; i certainly did. after hanging up the phone and doing a victory hop. Mindef does indeed want me, so that's where i'll be headed. soon. i don't know when. whenever we find our middle ground between "ASAP" and "i want to start in mid-september". no doubt i will hear from the HR dept soon enough.

MFA also called to schedule an interview, despite PSC supposedly informing them that i'm no longer available for employment. it's gratifying to know that i did get nibbles from all the major players i was interested in. gives me hope for the future. -grin-

and now on to the newly important issue of -- how am i going to get to work? (i am still carless; and we are in the middle of a what-car-to-get knock-down-drag-out fight - i think i shd have veto power, since i'll be driving it and my brother hasn't got a licence yet!)
