So a lot of things happened this week. I had a jeoarb interview for a pretty good government job and (despite the fact that I had to do a handwritten assessment in my terrible smudgy handwriting) I got invited back for another one next week. It’s now ten people and four jobs, so I’m thinking the odds are pretty good. Mind you, one of the other applicants I met in the lobby when I went for the interview earlier this week just casually revealed that he was a fucking lawyer. I mean, why does a lawyer even want a government job? Fuck. Anyway, as long as there aren’t three other lawyers in the group I should stand a chance.
I also got my new bike, which I had been waiting for for weeeeeeeeeeeeks. It’s a sweet-ass bike and I’ll post some photos but for the moment feel free to check out this picture here: http://www.bacchettabikes.com/bikes/performance-bikes/strada The only problem is that I’m still having a hard time keeping it in a straight line. I need to do a bit more practice in the empty underground car park at Woolworth’s before I mix it up with the traffic.
And today I went up to York to help my mum work on her house. I dug in a soakwell, finished the retaining wall and put in some new light fittings. Yes ladies, I am handy.
Finally, I wish to solicit your opinion regarding the proper use of the comma. According to Tom and Eleesha, you should not put a comma before the word ‘but.’ In my opinion, however, doing so reflects the natural pause that you would put in when speaking. I would like to know your opinion!
Of course, if you opinion differs from mine I will harangue you ceaselessly.
