I think the interview went well. I am the first of three interviews, of the three people left in the running. They will have an answer they said by two weeks time, and then ... then we will know. They said it starts around 7 September, which would be good for the current position, as it would take me into the school year when attendance starts falling off. I'm looking forward to that, actually, even if I don't get this position.

Yet again, I could not sleep last night, being plagued by dreams of all the things I could have said or done, all the things I should have trimmed before bringing in the show pieces, the fact that I forgot one of them, and the fact that the first thing they commented on with the embroidered stays was the untrimmed threads on the back. I always leave some of them untrimmed and I always forget them. And it looks like shit, and I miss Darzon's quality control. On the other hand, I do think I had a decent rapport with two of the three judges. So that's good at least. Sometimes it was three of the three. I'm not sure why the one remembered me, the one with whom I got on best, but she did, and she was fun, so that was good. The questions were interesting, and I answered them to the best of my ability, and threw in a few bits on how long I've been doing this. 18th century specifically I've done for 20 years, which is kind of weird to say, since I'm not that far out of my 20s. I think the best answer given was why they should hire me, and I said it was because sewing and history are my burning passion, and the needle has already chosen me, so who am I to deny that? I have learned better than to fight it by now.

Some of the questions were pretty weird. Like describe a situation that describes how well you listen. The only thing I could really come up with was music lessons and playing things back by ear. At which I did better than reading music, but that's because I'm an awful musician. Also, school lessons that had us quoting back pieces of poetry and stories as we heard them. But really, who asks that? It actually got my attention though, which was probably the point.

So basically, I feel like I'm somewhere between amazing and utter shite. Of course, when asked I did say I ranked my abilities at 8 or 9 out of 10. D says I was being modest, but we'll see.

I really, really reallyreallyREALLYREALLYREALLY want this job. Really.

In other news, I'm starting a queen stitch pin ball, with which to impress people (like the ones at the Margaret Hunter Millinery shop?). And at which to point and say This. This is a pin ball. See? Ball for pins. This is where it goes, and this is what it does. Now stop asking silly questions.

They'll never stop doing that, though, no matter how many props I wear.
