It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

I hate to distract from the primary discussions (I really do), but here is a guy in England that has calculated what day is the most depressing day of the year. It happened to be yesterday, January 21st. According to the article:

Arnall bases his yearly prediction on a formula he developed, which factors in the weather, consumer debt from holiday spending and failed New Year's resolutions and arrives at that conclusion that we'll hit rock bottom on Monday the 21st.

Shows what he knows- I haven't even made any new years resolutions, and we didn't go into debt for holiday spending because we didn't buy anyone presents! It did snow over a foot yesterday though. But... I had my first job interview in over 4 months, and it actually looks really promising. I'll update in a week or so if I get the job.

Dang it. Monday was my brother's birthday. And last Friday was my other brother's birthday. I still need to send them cards and call them. And now it's several days late. Now I'm depressed.
Actually, it won't be so bad. I've been "managing expectations" the past few years so if I call any time before St. Patrick's Day I'll be doing better than in previous years.

Ok, so I had my phone interview with the company. It seemed like it went well, and the guy said he would get back to me in 1-2 weeks whether he wanted me to come in for an all day interview session, since he still had a few more candidates to interview by phone. So the next day I get an email saying they want to schedule the on-site interviews for early next week. I guess the phone interview went better than he let on. I'm going out to the company on tuesday. I'll update on Wednesday or so whether I have a job or not. (and I'll disclose where that job will be)

I'm eagerly await your news. I hope it's in Michigan. Imagine me saying, "Please be Michigan!" over and over again just like PC on that one Mac advertisement was saying, "Please be a GUI C++ Programming Guide!"
