Interviewing again

  • 4th Feb, 2005 at 4:02 PM

It's odd what kinds of twists life throws at you. Last week, I thought I wouldn't go back to Waterloo for years. Today, I just booked a train trip there.

dcoombs_rss went to Toronto yesterday. cloquewerk and messiahdivine left today. I will be leaving on Sunday.

We are there to interview Waterloo co-op (and non-co-op) students who want to GetaJob with us over the summer. This time, I'm not going to interview developers, although that's what I like doing best. Playing bad cop, that is.

No, this time I'm there to interview testers, because denizsarikaya is down with the flu. She's feeling pretty miserable, and deserves the bedrest. Plus, it's midterm season and students would hate us if they caught what she has. Heck, I don't want to catch what she has.

I'll be arriving on 6 February 2005 at 22:00. I'll be leaving on 9 February 2005 at 9:00. People in Waterloo who want to see me should probably comment here, and I'll arrange something. Even if I have to squeeze you into my sleep schedule. (I hate hotel beds anyway. They're always too soft and "luxurious".)

The Denzo told me to thank you for stepping in for her. You know her, she's feeling pretty guilty, that she has let people down... but better than infecting the student population or fellow Nitiots... it's wicked flu, that's for sure.

Tell her that she's doing me a favour. If she asks me in person, I'll explain to her why.

I wish I had a little more time on my hands, because then I could cook up some soup for her. I make a great chicken noodle soup from scratch.

Aye, I will pass along the message...

Try not to have too much fun in Waterloo!

Weeeell.. nice of you to visit again so soon. =) Too bad it's going to be during the hell week of assignments.

Anyway, I, for some unknown and ridiculous reason, considered dropping into the wonderful group interview. Regardless, we were thinking of lunch or dinner sometime. Where we includes moi and dcoombs, and possibly mcote, lkosewsk, mksyunz and Sergey.. =)

Sounds like fun. Let's do it.

If you still want a Maplesoft hat, give me a shout.

Oh yeah. That would be awesome.

When do you have time?
I can give you a gryphon hat too, since somehow I ended up with 2.

I have time after school at 17:00. I'll be in the CECS building, and can meet up with you there.

It will be wonderful to see you again. And acquire some new ball caps.

I brought the hats to work today. I'll see you in the CECS building around 1700!
