Written in the stars

Lately, I've been feeling a bit under the weather; and now that I've read my horoscope for the coming week, I feel worse still. I'm not going to get that job, as it reads that I'll face terrible disappointment, but that I will learn from the experience and in time, will come to see how it was all for the best. I'm trying to ignore this message, by considering how many times in the past my horoscope has ever been correct, and the answer is: exactly never (where's that tall, dark stranger I was promised years ago?) -- but I can't shake the fear that this once, and just to spite me, the prediction may come true.

I was all energetic this morning. Now, I can't shift my butt into gear, and I've got stacks of housework waiting for me. Which isn't going to do itself, so...

Tomorrow, I'm going on a shopping spree with db2305. Neither one of us has ever been to this outlet centre before, so we're not quite sure what we might expect, but I'm sure we'll manage.

All horoscopes are invalid at the moment following the discovery of the 3 new planets, the controversy over which (if any) of them is actually a planet, the disputed downgrading of Pluto to not being a planet after all, and so on. Take no notice and do not be disheartened.

Good point, well made.

Chin up, H. Go make a nice cuppa and get your optimism back on.

I think it's the waiting around that's getting to me. Still, only two more days to go, one of which will be spent shopping...

But what if that psychologist writes up a damning report on me, says it's clear to her that I'm not cast from the sooper sekritt mould?

I need a cuppa. And maybe something a wee bit stronger.

MWNN remarked only this morning that the powers that be have spent an awful lot of time, money and manpower in this recruitment excercise. I doubt that one report will tip the balance either way. They're going to look at the whole kit 'n' kaboodle.

Me too. My temperature seems to be going back up on day three after the antibiotics ended. Mine's got an added sparkle in it. Add whatever you want to yours.

I'll get this comment right if it kills me.

Sorry to hear your temperature's rising again -- please do take it easy and don't exert yourself too much. We want you at 100% for the James-fest later!

See? Definitely not sooper sekritt material! I haven't even started working there, and I've already spilled the beans...

Add whatever you want to yours.

Wish I could, but there's never any alcohol in my house. I've got cheese, though.

Not sure if the discovery of any new planets would have repercussions for astrology as such (after all, astrologists drew up horoscopes long before astronomers discovered and included Uranus and Pluto as belonging to our solar system), but thanks for trying to cheer me up with rational arguments...I think you may have succeeded, too.

Astrology, huh. Balderdash.

Belated hugs for the love-meme, yay! for Leila, hugs for your nerves plus a hug for B. while I'm at it. I am absolutely convinced you'll manage beautifully on your spree. ;-)

Whenever I read a bad horoscope, I remember the words of my then 5-year-old daughter (the one that was born cynical) when I explained astrology to her. "You mean some people thing that a ball of gas millions of miles away cares who you date?"

She said that at five years old? LOL! That must have brought you up short!

And she was totally right, of course. And I've only got 48 more hours to wait...

My daughter would mock the superstition, but I have my fingers crossed for you as I hit "post."

Enjoy the shopping, bollocks to the horoscope, and best of luck on the next stage.

Yep - that seems to cover everything!

Also I am glad that Leila is starting to interact with life a bit again.

I'm so happy Leila's starting to come out of her shell; it seems that every day, she gets a little more courage and will try new things.

Anytime you apply for anything - you are going to wonder. Hang in there.

Right now - according to my horoscope and I admit I was excited by this when I read it- I should be whooping it up with my choice of boyfriends and experiencing the social high point of 2005.

Umm - no.

Oh Juno, thanks for making me laugh out loud! Right now, I'm only an hour away from knowing my fate...fingers crossed!
