interview countdown: 2 days

i have two days till my interview. i have two possible suits, 1 shirt, 2 skirts and zero appropriate shoes. i can't believe i have no shoes. i have a lot of shoes and none of them are right for a suit. or a dress skirt. it's bewildering. and since i'm going on about numbers...175 as of this morning. 21 pounds lost, about 20 left to lose. woo hoo!

sadly i didn't get to do the limited skirt test. because their blazers didn't button for me. i need a titanium minimizer for that to happen. if only i could find one. i ended up getting my suits at target (h&m only had one blazer in my size and it didn't match anything. at all.) in the isaac mizrahi section, convenient so when i freak out and decide i hate it i can take it back. i have to choose one so i can take up the hem. matt doesn't know it yet but he has a fashion show scheduled for tonight. i know he'll be pleased.

My interview pants are at the dry cleaners getting hemmed right now. They fit nicely and make me look very streamlined (pinstripes will do that) but they wrinkle at the top and make this sunburst thing with my crotch at the center and I don't know if it's just me being neurotic or if it's really noticeable.

You have no shoes to go with your outfit? You? No shoes? I can't believe it either.

By the way, good luck with the interview. You'll knock 'em dead, I'm sure.

hey, you've got a head hunter...do you have to wear a suit? what do you wear? i'm agonizing over this. i'm not interviewing for donald trump or anything. i cannae decide.

do you know who's interviewing you? If it's a man, he probably won't notice your shoes (unless he's gay, or weird about women wearing high heels.)

Good job on the 21 pounds lost, by the way. Woo hoo indeed!

This deadline is so past due. What's the scoop?

Amy said...

which deadline? the one where i was supposed to send you cookies when dinosaurs roamed the earth or the one where i say the interview went ok? i haven't gone yet, it's this afternoon. but i have another at a museum and i'm all aflutter. the one i'm going for this afternoon is a state job and big money probably...i'll update on it bright and early tomorrow.

Sugarcrook said...

Crap. It's evening here and that threw me off.

Sugarcrook said...

Oh, I so don't want that old batch of cookies, unless I can use them to tile my kitchen.

Mmmmm... stale cookie tile with grout.

Amy said...

i love the faith that you have that i actually baked those cookies. i don't know what's happened in the last few weeks/months but nothing i've planned to do has gotten done. matt hasn't gotten any cookies either and it's starting to bum him out. but i'm taking some days off early in the week so i can bake and mail the same day. but it sounds like you're not so much around?

I've invaded Denmark, but only temporarily.
