In Your Face, Suckas!
Autumn - sunlitdays
Okay, so yesterday pretty much sucked, as anyone who has read this LJ will know. Thank you to all of you who commented, it did make me feel better. Having said that...

I was talking to my sister (my second fiercest advocate, just pipped to the post by my mum) and she found a job for me on the Guardian Unlimited website for a Translation Production Assistant.

See link for job description

I e-mailed them right then and there with my CV (even though it was ten o'clock at night) and got a call today asking me to come in for an interview next week! So now I am thoroughly excited because even though it only pays £16,000 p.a. it would be a really good job to start me off and I would gain so many skills and it's in London just off Bloomsbury Street (which is where the British Museum is) and right near Charing Cross Road. If I get this, it would be ideal. And coming after yesterday, it boosted my confidence right up. In your face, Anne!

Now for my second piece of good news. BBC Radio 4 does a programme called Chain Reaction, where a famous person interviews another famous person of their choice. The interviewee then gets to pick the next guest and becomes the interviewer. And so on and so forth. They're recording a new series. The first programme will be Catherine Tate interviewing the sexy, Scottish David Tennant (aka Casanova aka Doctor Who). AND I GOT THE TICKETS TODAY! XD *waves tickets around* My friend godricgal and I will see Mr Tennant in the flesh. You may now envy me. I applied on Monday and I wasn't sure if I'd get them, because obviously lots of people will be applying. I'd already thought the day was great, but but when I went down and saw the envelope there with the BBC logo... I felt my heart leap and it got even better!

Then I went to the cinema and saw Becoming Jane. It's beautifully filmed and I was really impressed by Anne Hathaway (not just her accent but her emotion), even though Cassandra was meant to be the 'pretty' sister, not Jane (poor Anna Maxwell Martin was barely in it). I just wish that they hadn't tried to up the drama by putting in that elopement and the bit at the end... mmph. It didn't work for me. But it didn't spoil the film, either. James McAvoy was great, of course. It made me want to go and see Starter for Ten and The Last King of Scotland. I'd give it 3.5 out of 5. ^_^

I am SOSOSOOSOSOOSOSOOOSOOSOSOSOOSOOSO jealous!! Mobile phone pics of David (forget Catherine ;D) for me!!

My phone doesn't take photos, sorry. Maybe Kate's does. ^^

Thanks for the congrats. Hopefully this one will work out.

The GUARDIAN?!! That's superlatively amazing!!! Talk about sophistication! Well, well well! This calls for a celebration - Austen style!
*breaks out the tea, crumpets, and croquet sets* Let us walk around the room now! :DDD

Oh Queenie, you always crack me up. Always, always. *hugs you* The world would be dull and monochrome without you.

*grins from ear to ear* That's me, making people happy (intermittently, at the very least) since 1989.
*hugs back*

Hurray! The good waves finally reached. Hopefully, they're strong enough to help you land this job that sounds like a perfect fit for you! *crosses fingers and sends more* *grin*

Yes, they did! Thank you very much!

YEY for good news! ;) Congrats! You deserve it very much!

Thanks! Here's hoping I get it.

Belated congratulations to you! That job sounds great!

Thats so awesome! I hope you get the job.... And David Tennant *drools*. Lucky lucy girl! I saw Becoming Jane too... totally agree about James McAvoy and I was pleasantly surprised by Anne Hathaway. I think maybe I was a bit prejudiced against her because of Princess Diaries *gack*. I wasn't sure about the elopement part... I don't think the real Jane would do that. Romantic though she was I think she was also fairly practical. I liked how they wove in things from the books into the script though and the slightly Darcy/ Elizabeth esque romance... although Lefroy had quite a touch of Wickham about him as well....

Good luck with the interview !*hugs*

I hope I get it, too!

I wasn't sure about the elopement part... I don't think the real Jane would do that. Romantic though she was I think she was also fairly practical.

Yes, exactly. I got a little annoyed when they met in the woods (yeah, like that happened) and she got all weepy. That's not Jane.
