Getting ready

I shined my old black wingtips. I am a master at that sort of thing. I learned how to shine shoes from my years spent in northeast England selling vacuum cleaners for Jebus. I know wingtips are old fashioned. These wingtips have been with me for a very long time and have been into many a home, down many a street in far away places. These are the shoes that bring me luck. They are the shoes that I ran away from many insane dogs in. The same shoes that got soaked in the North Sea. You could say that these are my lucky shoes. All the better to shine them up for a special occasion.

I also changed my bedding. It didn't need to be done, but I wanted that crisp, clean feeling as I lay in bed tonight. I don't know how well I will sleep. I will try my best. Since I work 'till late and am usually to bed around 2AM, getting up early can be hard. But, I think I'm going to kill at this interview regardless of how much sleep I get tonight.

Wish me luck!

Good luck to you. And if they don't want to give you the position, I hear a wingtip to the kidney can be very persuasive.

Best of luck man!

My tip for interviewing is to always call a friend before you go in -- especially important for morning interviews, where you might otherwise have not spoken with anybody at great length yet that day. This stokes the fires of conversation, so you aren't having to ramp up into it for the important part -- the first impression.

Thanks everybody! The interview went great. I won't find out until next week because interviews will be going until Monday for this position. There was just one issue where I would have to turn down this job and they said that they would look into it for me--health insurance.
