stuff. @ 10:43 pm

Current Mood: drained drained
Current Music: the dulcet tappetytappetytaps of typing

I slept for three hours, and dreamt that saraicat was my sister. (Why, I don't know; I don't even know her.) I got up, briefly paniced when I couldn't find the job application/NDA, took a shower, found the app where I had cleverly placed it so it wouldn't get lost or munged up, drove through Jack in the Box, and sped over to Palo Alto for my interview at Danger.

I think I did OK. I was slightly ADDish, being hyperfocused yet forgetful, which was kind of annoying. I muffed remembering all the fields in an IP packet (I hadn't read RFC791 for quite a while), what an xid is in NFS (it's the transaction ID in RPC), and I have no idea wtf they meant by "state inspection". I slightly bobbled a few other things, but I think I got the gist across. They didn't start laughing and pointing as soon as they left the room, always a good sign.

Went home, tried not to fall asleep, geeked for a while, cleaned up, geeked some more, finally felt hungry around 9:30, and went to the grocery store where I found I had odd cravings for cheese and Vitamin C. I gave in to said urges, came home, and ate macaroni and cheese and typed this. I think I'm gonna sleep pretty well this evening.

hmmm i might have interviewed with the first guy but my friend is brian swetland.

i also interviewed with the big cheese, joe britt. it was the day he had to take the rats into the vet. they were sick.

it was a lot of fun there but at the same time, a mad house of work. i'm rather glad i didn't get the job.

heya!
my comment is completely unrelated to your post...
but i found you via bodmodtrademart and you seem like a neat person, so i added you to my friend list.
rather than just feel like a snoop, i'm saying hi. O_o
i'm bRi, i live in albuquerque, and my very-long-standing crush, laine, used to live in mountainview...
don't think i've ever encountered anyone else who lived in that town, tho i did spend the night there a few times...
i'm rambling, and will shut up now.

Yay! I need more stalkers. Especially ones who have easy access to green chilis.

mmmmm....chile...
when i first moved here, being a soft-bellied eastern transplant, i didn't like the stuff.
the really hot stuff is still out of the question, but now i *love* chile cheese fries and make my hubby green chile stew every once in a while. :)

Heh. I've always sort of half wondered what that place did, as I was wandering my way up from school to get pizza or whatnot. And now I know.

<gratuitous /> And knowing is half the battle!

Neat stuff they've got, and the people are pretty cool.
