Actually, insofar as i'm any judge, it went ok. Although I do feel i came across as a bit nervous.
The guy kept asking me for examples of how i've reacted in different work situations...some i had answers for, some i had to wing it and some i just out and out lied. Well even if I don't get it, at least i've stepped outside of my comfort zone and motivated myself to do something with my life. (theres alot of competition for this job, the guy had 12 files on the desk and those were just for today)
For the northeast mob, would thursday night or friday night be better for meeting for drinkies?
Also am sending a big stack of mental *hugs* to anyone who feels they need one.

Before I get into this, just wanna let you guys know I aced the interveiw and they've invited me to a second one on monday morning. (also, if I get this job, people are forbidden...on pain of being beaten severely about the head and body...from singing "Postman Pat", "The Mail Must Go Through" or "Hey! Mr Postman" at me)
Now, having just taken a walk through the city centre of my home town of Sunderland for the first time in the 2 weeks i've been back...i'm remembering why i never came back.
3 Years ago I got on the metro to newcastle and as the doors closed I yelled "so long Sunderland!! you ever see me back in this town you'll know I fucked up badly"
It has never occurred to me how seriously I meant that until today!!

Ok went out on the beer on thursday night. (6 Women. 1 bloke...with me so far...ALL lesbians so my powers of womanising are useless). Get bullied into going to a karioke bar...Recieved a standing ovation for my extremely drunk Johnny Cash impression...don't believe me...I gots witnesses
Andys birthday pissup went well...I was the sober one for once.
tomorrow I have a job interveiw what I are skiving the first 2 hours of my shift at Macs for.
Well spent the last few months moping around feeling sorry for myself, doing some phenomonally stupid things and making a complete tit of myself. Today i've managed to motivate myself and start over again.
I feel so much better for actually getting off my arse and doing something positive. Applied for a couple of really good jobs, and will be going to harrass the council about a flat on my break tomorrow and if that doesn't look like moving forward will look into house shares again.
...and to whoever you are spreading the unpleasant rumours about me, in a feeble effort to keep me down, I will find you and you will regret it.

Being Icarus the drunken gate - captain. Only two diplomatic incidents but they were doosies.
Upsetting Drewin and getting challenged to a duel. Only when Vadek comes to marshall it he says "I am sick of all the bickering and infighting in this nation, so you two won't be duelling each other....you'll be duelling ME!!" pulls out the hornblade and launches at Icarus who parries the first blow by accident, the second by luck and takes the third right accros the chest.
Redeeming myself for drunken shenanigans by chasing down a couple of tranny daggerboys.

Juggerball, the cheerleading chants, deciding we were so shite we should let the cheerleaders have a go.
The new tavern sucked
Losing my sleeping bag and having only a blanket for the coldest night of the year, go team Hypothermia...although I think gemz got it worse.
