What might have been


Well, I just had my New York City Teaching Fellows interview ... not sure how it went, honestly, but I generally do poorly in interviews (no time to show off my unique brand of irreverent wit, I guess) so I'm a little nervous about the whole venture. Also, they only hire about 10% of applicants so, meh, the odds ain't good anyway. The fact that I have the distinct impression the interviewer was laughing at me? Well, that might be paranoia. But I didn't have an answer for the question about what I did the last time there was a decision made in the workplace I didn't like. I just went blank -- I was like, "Decision? Me? You must be thinking of someone else. I just enter data."

I hope it turns out all right. I thought of you recently when I posted a video clip that connects Buster Keaton, "Fatty" Arbuckle, and Shakespeare. Perhaps Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle's Cleopatra will cheer you a little.

Take care!

I think Shakespeare would've liked Fatty Arbuckle.

Oh, good luck, A! Interviews are the pits. I always say dumb things in them. Might explain my current station in life....hmmm! Oh, but you'd be the most inspiring and fun-loving teacher one could ask for!

Good luck...........

Thanks Pammy! I hope I get it cause I just got sacked from my job! So long, free DVDs!

(Please note: I was not fired for stealing DVDs.)
