String me along, I like it!

So, yes - it's Thursday. As Jenn commented this morning "Maybe they meant Thursday...". And Miss Fire said she'd kill them for me, which was wonderfully sweet! Well, as I sat here about an hour ago, trying not to be neurotic (and failing, as usual) my phone rang. It was the VP I interviewed with who wrote me the email telling me I'd hear from them on Wednesday. She apologized profusely for the delay (which was endearing) and said that getting all 3 of the decision makers to sit down with one another has been difficult because they've been so swamped (read: blogging too much, right Sandra?). They're now checking references, so would I be so kind as to send her a couple of names & numbers? I conferred with my references (meaning I called them and ordered them to talk me up) and sent the email. She said if I don't hear back this afternoon that I'll hear tomorrow. Hmm. OK.

It's good that they called, good that they're checking references. If I had been booted from the "possible new hire" list, they probably wouldn't bother to check me out. So now it's back to being neurotic. I'm so damn good at that.

Arghhh!! The agony.....

I can't believe they're checking references. I didn't think anybody did that anymore. It's a postive sign that she called you, I think.

You'd better replenish your stock of vodka.

Since I can't handle vodka (sorry), I'll have a glass, ok, bottle, of red in your honor tonight.

Sending you good vibes for all the best...Cheers!

OK, Kristie's going to chat me up (it truly is convenient to have your best pal as a past co-worker), Pam's going to drink some great French red for me, Miss Fire's still going to kill them for me if they don't call, and K Lance is convinced I'm in. So for now, I'm convinced I'm in, I just have to wait to hear that from them. Alrighty then, I can handle this. I can totally handle this.
