I received a phone call from Verizon a minute ago. Despite the very 'positive overall impression' I had made in my interview, they had decided they weren't comfortable with the fact that I had no previous experience in Sales and so, wouldn't be taking the process any further. I was sorry to hear it, as over the last few days I had allowed myself to dream that my search was almost at an end. Also, the company seemed like one I would enjoy working at...international, technologically innovative, dynamic...

On Sunday, I went to see The Avengers in 3D. It was a spur of the moment thing, and therefore not the kind of film I would have queued up for if I'd given the matter any thought, but I enjoyed it greatly - despite the fact that I've never read any Marvel comics and (apart from the Hulk, who I knew from the 70s TV-series) have no idea of any of these characters' back stories. Robert Downey Jr. starred in it though, and that was enough to keep me happy. Joss Whedon's name popped up in the end credits as the director and gave me a little jolt of recognition and surprise, but the person I went to see the movie with isn't familiar with the Buffyverse and so I didn't comment on it. I understand some people on my flist are looking forward to seeing it and so I won't spoil them with any thoughts on plot or character development, but will only say that it is marvellous good fun (the audience erupted in gales of laughter at several points) and well worth the price of admission.

Oh, I'm very sorry to hear about the job. That's too bad. Still keeping my fingers crossed!

I think I may try to see The Avengers on Friday. There's a theater just around the corner from my office. We'll see if I can get off in time.

Thank you. And you'll love The Avengers, if you do make it to the cinema (would you go without Tyson?).

Tyson will be out of town this weekend, and he's apparently going without me, and I have no problem seeing a movie by myself.

Oh, I didn't mean to suggest you might not feel comfortable seeing a movie on your own (why wouldn't you?); it's just that I thought you had decided to postpone seeing this one until Tyson would be back in town.

Oh, I didn't mean to sound short with you. I'm actually a little irritated with him, since I had assumed we'd go together (and I wanted to go with him), but he went ahead and made plans to go without telling me. Which is fine, but I don't think he would have told me if I hadn't brought up how much I wanted to see it. Men!

I enjoyed The Avengers enough that I'm thinking of seeing it twice. I have seen the previous movies too.

There are previous movies?!

Actually...that makes sense. No wonder there was no proper introduction to any of the main characters in this one, then.

Sorry about Verizon, honey.

It's alright. A pity, but...
