Before too much longer, I'll be finishing up my primping and then will be heading out the door to drive over to Merck for my interview. I was hoping to catch my Mom at her desk to ask her a few questions, but she's been in meetings, so no go there. She knows the folks with whom I'm interviewing, and I wanted her opinion on whether I need The Interview Suit, or if I can get away with the Almost Suit (same skirt as the Interview Suit, but instead of a suit jacket, I wear a red silk sleeveless shell under a white silk button-down with black embroidery. It's dressy, just a step back from wearing the relatively heavy suit jacket, which I hate.) Since I can't get a hold of her, I'm going to take the safe default and wear The Interview Suit.

After the interview, I have to head straight over to CWC; I work there from 3-10pm today. So I won't be able to post anything about how the interview goes. Cross your fingers for me! I really don't know how hard they interview when it's just for a temp position. When I temped at Merck during college breaks, the Merck management didn't even interview temps-- they just let the temp agency handle it all, so this is a new process for me.

Okay, Random Pennsic Question: I've been told that, unlike at Estrella, you don't get to just drive up to your camp to unload. If that's the case, how in hell do I get a cot, a cooler, a duffle bag and a bin of clothing from my truck to Mariana's tent? Do I need to find a dolly that I can bring?

On the interview... go for all out. Unless wearing the suit will make you look uncomfortable or cause you to squirm. You want to show that you take this VERY seriously no matter the level of the job. This makes a very good impression on people.

As to the hauling of stuff, come on girl! You know how to bat your pretty eyes and put on the southern drawl to get the boys to help you carry stuff. :) I am sure that you can find one or two very helpful pack-mul.... err gentlemen to help you carry stuff. I am sooo jealous too. I would gladly pack-mule all your stuff if it meant going to Pennsic. Sigh.. maybe next year.

That is incorrect dearie...they're just WAY more anal about it than at Estrella. There are tow trucks that roam site. DO NOT LEAVE YOUR VEHICLE NEXT TO CAMP IF YOU AREN'T UNLOADING. As soon as you're done getting everything out of your car, go park it. Don't try to set up your stuff then do it.

Good luck this afternoon babe!
