Going round the twist

I just can't seem to get James Blunt's 'You're Beautiful' out of my head, which is a sure sign that I've been watching too many Doctor Who fan vids lately. It's a lovely song, and so are its companions (hee! companions!) 'Goodbye My Lover' and 'Cry', but for the love of God, can't they just shut up already? Between the three of them, they're driving me barmy.

So I caved in last night, and bought the album from the iTunes store, hoping that by adding it to My Library, I might finally erase it from my mind -- but so far it hasn't worked...and even though as I've said it's a perfectly lovely song, by now I'm heartily sick of it!

Meanwhile, I'm fairly confident as to what the near future will bring. I woke up in a cold sweat last night remembering some of the embarrassing things I'd said during my interview, why I don't know -I'm through, what do I care what I said or didn't say?-, and in the end got up and e-mailed Tinny to tell her the good news. Now she's just got back to me with congratulations and an offer to take time out of her schedule and coach me for the assessment centre, free of charge. I think I may just take her up on that!

I still can't quite believe my good fortune. I suspect something funny may be going on: just the other day, the bus driver told me to put my money away when I wanted to pay for my ticket, the Home Office seem eager to welcome me into the fold, and now my therapist offers practical help for the sheer heck of it -- people are so nice to me, I can't help thinking there must be a catch somewhere...

I've been having a delightful yet somewhat unsettling spell of confidence and good fortune too. My pessimistic nature can't help but wonder when the rug's going to be pulled out from under me and I go back to "normal".

Meh, I say we enjoy it while it lasts and milk it for all we can get! :-D

You're right of course -- why worry? I'll just sit back and enjoy the ride!

Someone gave me their pay and display ticket yesterday, does that count?

Did it make you feel good? Then it does!

Take the good stuff and run with it. We all deserve a string of good luck every once in a while. :)

I know, I shouldn't question it, really...it's just: I'm kinda getting used to it. I don't ever want it to end! ;-)

No, I completely understand. I feel the same way when life is going well. You wonder when it's going to end and hope that it doesn't.

Good deal! Do take her up on it and then you will be even more confident for the next round. I can't wait until you are all super-secrete-agent-woman.

Nor me! It's funny, really, but with every step I get closer to my goal, I get more fired up; and what started off as something of a joke has now taken on deadly serious overtones.

I really, realy want this job. I think that if HP were to turn round and offer me a position in another team away from Jobsworth, I would still rather take my chances.
