Thing 1: Yesterday was That Interview I Told You About. It was, as I had suspected, a mere formality. I have to wait for my fingerprints to come back, then they will put me on their phone list and HOPEFULLY start calling me. Then all I have to do is convince the students and other teachers that I am wonderful and marvellous and skilled, so they will request me for future jobs. Easy as pie? Perhaps not quite. Doable? Defintitely. Better than what I do now? ARE YOU KIDDING?!!
Thing 2: Crap box (my computer, for you newbies out there), has broken down again. It claims that there is a "disk read error" and curtly advises to hit Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart. And when you restart, it tells you about the "disk read error" again, and you hit Ctrl+Alt+Del again, which inevitably brings you back to the same screen. Hitting F10 for a reformat or F1 to "enter setup" doesn't produce different results. The CD drive has been broken since the last adventure in crapboxing, when we put in a new hard drive. Thusly, the recovery CDs we have are of not much help at all.
I dream of the shiny, bright apple store... We're one step closer, methinks.
