One step forward, two steps back, and a sideways shuffle.

The good: I had a job interview last week, and it went reasonably well, and I know I'm on a shortlist of three and I should find out this week and I really want this job.

The bad: I've got cause to worry about breast cancer right now. I have an appointment on Thursday to find out more. I don't know for sure, and I may get lucky with this and have it be something a bit lot less drastic...but it's so hard not to get wound up and worry right now.

The sideways shuffle (what, you didn't think you would get an entire post without some political flavour, did you?): The US Congresscritters are still involved in their strop, are STILL throwing their toys out of the pram, and are STILL in a position to tank the world economy (again) in so doing. I would really like to see this not happen any more, and for those of you who vote, it's time to remind your local Congresscritter of that fact. These people get paid more than 95% of Americans do, it is not unreasonable to expect them to sit down and talk like adults.

I just want to mention, relevant because of all this stupidity rolling around about healthcare in the US right now: this is why I can't move back to the US even if I wanted to. I have such cause to be so very grateful for the existence of the NHS right now.
