OK, due to all the confusion of the day, I was unable to watch the game in real time, but did tape it for future reference ... however, I caught a glimpse here and there, enough to appreciate the see-saw battle it was.

  BEARS       19  
  VIKINGS   16  

It's not the big smack-down that I was hoping we'd put on the Vikes, but a win's a win, and a division win is always a good thing. This puts The Bears 3-0, with all 3 being against division opponents, and two of those being road games! Quite the promising start to the season!

Very, very nervous ...

Well, I'm getting ready to head out the door to get to this interview, and I'm nervous as hell.

No doubt, a significant part of why I'm nervous is that in the six years of on-going (if intermittent) job search, I have scored exactly two previous interviews (not counting the bartending), one of which was totally bogus, and one of which was "a clerical error" (they marked the wrong box). This is, in a lot of ways, totally new territory for me.

Sure, on one hand I'm excited to actually have somebody finally call me in to talk, but on the other hand, I'm going to be "making it up as I go along", as opposed to a lot of folks who have this stuff down to a science. Sometime my "tapdancing" is brilliant, but sometimes it's just incoherent, and I'm terrified that I'll end up with the latter and totally blow this.
