Yesterday I wasn't getting any LJ comments, and then in the evening I could not get online at all, and let me tell you, it was ugly. PALPITATIONS. EXCESSIVE CLICKING & MOUSE ABUSE. HAND-WRINGING. SHAKING. ANGER, WILD SOBBING. hahahaha! Then I took a chill pill and went to bed.

Today, LJ appears to be down almost completely. I can't get in at all, due to maintenance which the support page says is supposed to last "10-15 minutes" but which by my clock is going on 2 hours. God knows if this entry will post when I try.

More and bigger butterflies/lifes gathering. Some of them are here for the singing and some for the interview today. eep! I've been trying to think of answers to possible interview questions, but my brain feels a little frozen. Everything that I say in English sounds good, but in Swedish I'm just a big braggart. :P At least I feel I have a good grasp of my positive and negative qualities and I'm very confident about the things I know I do well. And I'm good at winging it...what else do I need?!

How I Love That Man O' Mine Anders just sent me an e-card from the website wishing me good luck on the interview and telling me that I'm his #1. That killed at least a couple of fangy butterflies. Hearts are flying around my head!

Best of luck with the interview! *sends good vibes*

:) *still giggling about the e-card from ducati!, what a sweetheart!*

Is Telia your ISP, too? We couldn't get online last night, either. I'm so dumping Telia as my ISP and mobile phone provider ASAP.

Good luck on your interview today, too.

Yeah, but we just switched to them in the spring because otherwise we wouldn't have broadband. :( grump.

Good luck for the interview, I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you.

Good luck on the interview! Do well! (but only if you really want the job)

Good luck on the interview :-) *crosses fingers and toes**
Anders is a sweetie....

Good luck on the interview! (BTW, did you get the files I sent you last night? Well, I know you didn't get them last night, but did you get them this morning? I sent all the information I had.)

I did get them, thank you!! I couldn't get on the internet last night, and was busy doing last minute stuff this morning before the interview. I'll be doing up the lists tonight. Thanks!! The interview went GREAT!

Oooh, what time is the interview? Good luck! Good luck! Good luck! :)


You are going to have them eating out of your hand at this interview! They will be begging you to join them. Think of the butterflies as little spirit companions. You are gonna rock their socks off-- you are THAT good. ~ bluepoppy

sending lots of good thoughts and a few prayers for the interview.


Good luck, ask intelligent yet slightly kiss ass questions of your interviewer.

It's actually not's everywhere. Some shit broke up the internet pipeline and nearly everything has been fucked up as a result. I couldn't get online 50% of yesterday period.

there's an internet pipeline? hmmm...I'm glad it only lasted one day!

Haha...well, pipeline is my rather ragged paraphrase. The tech-savvy one in the household explained it to me yesterday after I bitched about the downtime, but I can't remember the details well...the way he described it, one of the big providers - like Comcast, which is our current cable provider over here - had a bunch of hardware totally freak out because of a nasty power flicker. So they're trying to patch that up. Anyway, a problem that far up the ladder tends to snarl up the whole system to a degree.

Oh, so you have Telia also? I thought it might have been the ADSL modem that hiccupped. We were offline last night also, at the worst time possible. I've gotten plenty of offers for broadband just in the past week or two, but if it wasn't for our group connection at übercheap prices, I'd be tempted to try the others out.

yeah, we got them just for the broadband. It was only the evening for me, but I understand people all over the world had trouble connecting yesterday.
