Suprised, shocked and speechless

Okay, you know that last part is never true.

So, remember the I suck blog? The one where I blew my interview for the job I was all excited about? And then of course there's my recent foray into dating that ended unfavourably.
Nobody wants me, boohoohoo! Curses on me for being such a failure!

Well, one of my interviewers called and said they wanted to offer me a job. Normally the employees are required to have a car to drive to various homes for tutoring. But, they were "so impressed" by me - that's right, by me! - that they were willing to accomodate me and find locations to suit. Wooha! But alas, I don't really want this job. They want me to commit to a year, it'll be lonely, unsociable work, and there doesn't seem to be the possibility for advancement. So I said I'd think about it.

Then today the unthinkable happened. Heritage Canada called about the multiculturalism internship. The one I really wanted but fucked up. We went through a few things, they wanted me to come down and fill something out etc etc. To get to the short of it, I asked what my chances were because I had this other, less than perfect job offer I had to respond to. "Off the record", she says.... they had chosen me! OHMYGOD! But... but... I totally sucked! Is what I wanted to say, but didn't. Hip hip hurrah!

So the boy doesn't want me. Too bad. The government does! All I need to do is get a security check and I'm in.

I sure hope those stolen babies don't show up on my record...

That\'s a turn up. Now, if things go to form on the dating front you\'ll have several offers next month all from frogs and a Prince who you thought never knew you existed will ask you out out of the blue. Or something like that. *Crosses fingers in a Canadian fashion.*
