Safe and sound. And cold.

Well, I made it to D.C. in one piece, and to say the weather here is shitty is the understatement of the year. It's cold, rainy, and generally even worse than in the TVPNM, which is saying something I think. So, needless to say, running around town tomorrow in high heels and pantyhose should be totally joyous...I can't wait. Oh well, I'm excited about my interview and I just spent some time looking up the people who will be interviewing me and trying to get at least a sense of what they do and what their various departments and whatnot are about. I think that's probably about as in-depth as I generally get in terms of interview prep, so now I'm going to try to just relax and actually get some sleep and hopefully tomorrow I'll be feeling semi-human. I got about three hours of sleep last night between worrying about the alarm not going off, worrying about the interview, worrying that the car I borrowed to drive to the airport would mysteriously malfunction in some horrible way, and having to be up at 4am.

In other news, I GOT A CAR!!! Yes, my dad confirmed for me on the phone just now that, come Thanksgiving, I will be buying a one-way ticket home and driving back in my very own car handed down to me by my grandpa after much wheeling and dealing on my dad's part. YAY!

So, wish me luck as I brave the wilds of the D.C. metro/bus system tomorrow and go through a four hour interview process with an employer that is whittling down the last 50 or so people into 9. Yikes!
