I know that you'll do great, but we're crossing all fingers, toes & paws for you here, too.   :D

My only word of advice?  SMILE!  It's the most important thing to wear to an interview.   ;)  ;D

I'm going to have to agree with Jenn, Marie and everyone else.

Over prepared is good. See if you can stop by a store to have it taken off.

My advice: Be yourself, make them laugh. They're sure to remember you that way. Everything is still croseed over here!

Just got home from San Antonio. I think the interview went pretty well. They seemed to be interested in what I said, I made them laugh, I kept the energy level up, but MAN some of their questions were hard!!

I know I scored points at the end of the interview when they asked if I had any questions for them 'cause the main interviewer guy said, "That's a really good questions. You're the only one who thought to ask that."

I also found out there was one other internal candidate interviewed besides me, but I was the only one they flew in. I don't know if that's good or bad.

So, fingers and paws still crossed. I should know something soon!

Oh, and one of the best things about the job - my "office" would be out of my house!! Mondays and Fridays in my jammies with the dogs at my feet!! WOO HOO!!

Hmmm, you're the only one flown in, made them laugh, and the only one that thought of that particular question?  That all sounds very good to me!  I'm still keeping everything crossed but let me know when I can uncross them though, 'cause my stuff is going to sleep!  LOL   ;D  ;D  ;D 

How did the jacket problem work out?  Did you get the security tag off or did you wear something else?

BTW, my hubby works from home and those jammies days are really, really nice!!!   ;)  :D

I ended up wearing the short sleeve red jacket, which my friends in San Antonio said looked really sharp and agreed that red was a "power color". I think it fit better than the new jacket anyway. I'm going to return the new blazer and let the store manager know that he almost screwed up my very important interview.

And Lori, I LOVE reptiles!! I'll definitely go to the hot shows with you and then we can go out and party!! IF I get the job that is! Curses! Why haven't they called yet????
