Wife and sprogs are away for the week (at her parents), so I've been making the most of it. Went out to the eXtreme Tuesday Club
on Tuesday (after a couple of job interviews in the city). Met some cool people, had some good chats, including one chap who might we want to offer me a job. Must get round to sending him my CV.
Last night I went to see Scott Pilgrim vs. The World
. Edgar Wright is a fucking genius. If you like comics or video games, just go. If you don't, go anyway, you just won't like it quite
So why oops? Two reasons:
Yesterday I went to an interview with a cool company (Empora
) in Notting Hill. A day early. Yes, a day early. They didn't seem to mind, and it all went well, they want me to meet the directors for drinks some time, so no harm done, but I did feel a bit of a muppet. In my defence, I had told the agent Thrusday and he'd said Thursday (I'm sure), even if the email confirmation had the 27th. Besides, I couldn't have done this afternoon, as I'm in two other interviews this afternoon.
This morning I was having a proper buzz. Overslept til 9.00, but working from home for the morning with the afternoon off, so no harm done really. Mumford and Sons blasting out of the PC, I skipped (yes, skipped, did I mention I'm feeling pretty good this week?) into the kitchen to fry up some sausages for breakfast. Grabbed the frying pan off the cooker, as it needed washing after I used it last night and twirled my way across the kitchen to the sink. Then wandered what the funny noise behind me was, and glanced down at the pan with a sinking feeling. It was now dirty and empty, but last night I'd put some water in while it was still hot to lift some of the cooked on muck. Turned round and yup, dirty, greasy, sausagy water was now dripping down all the units.
For those of you not following on twitter, this afternoon's interviews are at Goldman Sachs and UBS, and if I understand correctly, both are final interviews. By this time next week, I'm expecting to have two job offers to select from, although I'll take one, as it makes deciding easier. If I'm wrong, well, there's the chap I met at XTC ...
