Interview at last!

After months of applying and nowt, an interview! My first for CH, I've had lots from DE and BE, turned a few down too, but up till now nothing positive from CH.

It's only a HR interview, for a role I don't particularly fancy that much, money not that great either, but it's something and might get a trip to ZUR out of it and pay the agencies a personal visit...

I'm not desperate yet, still in a well paid job here, so I'm not jumping at the first thing, but I am by nature impulsive!

My missus is a trained interceptor and translator in German, so hopefully she should find something if the salary is crap and am so impulsive!

Well, I could go back and edit it but it would break the flow of the thread!

So at the cost of me looking like an idiot, I meant 'Interpreter' - I spelt it as 'Interpretor' and let the stupid spellchecker change it to 'Interceptor'. I let it do it, no doubt thinking wistfully of that Jensen Interceptor I nearly bought once...

I'm not too bothered, it would have rusted away by now....

Sigh..

Ok, those pictures are a lot more calming than what I initially had in mind, from the Star Wars Galaxy



I'm relieved that ze Germans haven't that kind of technology. Yet.

I'm ever more relieved to know that you hadn't unwittingly married a machine.
