Looks like I got the job! My college units qualify me as a teacher, and not a teacher's aide, after all, so I'll be making $8.75 an hour and probably starting tomorrow; I have to call in around 3 to get my schedule. The gal who interviewed me (actually one of the daughters of the owners) gave me a little tour of the place, which is really very impressive. It's all a little overwhelming at first, of course, but everyone there seems really nice and the kids are just adorable. And yes, Sue, I made sure to mention that I couldn't work the afternoon of the 13th ;)
Now, I have to go fill out a bleepload of paperwork and figure out how the heck I'm supposed to get my medical records faxed to me from UOP. Eek!
[Edit: Just for fun...
You are a Battleship. You're not here to make friends, but those who are on your side would not want to be with anyone else, and certainly don't want to make you angry. You are proud and strong and feel superior firepower is a prerequisite to peace negotiations.
