They've invited me to take part in the selection process -- starting with a psychological test some time in the next few weeks. If I can get through that, I'll get an interview, a writing assignment, another psychological test, a medical, and finally the all-important terms of employment and benefits negotiation round. Then, provided the security check into my background doesn't find anything controversial in my past, I could have another job by the middle of October!

I can't believe I made it past the first hurdle -- let's hope I can make it past the others, too. I'm so buoyed by this news, I've been celebrating my good fortune by going into town and acquiring two new pairs of shoes, this Feeder-cd, and a big white glass clock with orange and purple flowers on its face. Yay!
