I have my interview Monday morning. Yay!
I typed out my notes and my questions. Um. Is six pages & 10+ questions too much (and I limited myself to whatever I could think of in 20 minutes)? The interview is expected to last about two hours, anyway.
Hopefully most of my questions will be answered during the main part of the interview, or we may be there all day. O.O
Again, positive thoughts are most welcome.
Awesome quote of the day, from Bill Maher via the Moby LJ Feed
Apr 07, 2006 - new york city
bill maher's closing remarks on one of his recent shows:
"Mr. President, this job can't be fun for you any more. There's no more money to spend--you used up all of that. You can't start another war because you used up the army. And now, darn the luck, the rest of your
term has become the Bush family nightmare: helping poor people. Listen to your Mom. The cupboard's bare, the credit cards maxed out. No one's speaking to you. Mission accomplished."
"Now it's time to do what you've always done best: lose interest and walk away. Like you did with your military service and the oil company and the baseball team. It's time. Time to move on and try the next fantasy job. How about cowboy or an astronaut? Now I know what you're saying: there's so many other things that you as President could involve yourself in. Please don't. I know, I know. There's a lot left to do. There's a war with Venezuela. Eliminating the sales tax on yachts. Turning the space program over to the church. And Social Security to Fannie Mae. Giving embryos the vote."
"But, Sir, none of that is going to happen now. Why? Because you govern like Billy Joel drives. You've performed so poorly I'm surprised that you haven't given yourself a medal. You're a catastrophe that walks like a man. Herbert Hoover was a shitty president, but even he never conceded an entire city to rising water and snakes."
"On your watch, we've lost almost all of our allies, the surplus, four airliners, two trade centers, a piece of the Pentagon and the City of New Orleans. Maybe you're just not lucky. I'm not saying you don't love this country. I'm just wondering how much worse it could be if you were on the other side."
"So, yes, God does speak to you. What he is saying is: 'Take a hint.'
That totally made my day. Bill Maher is love.
