Dinner in the City

November 7th, 2014 at 02:21 pm

I had dinner in the city last night with three friends, one of whom is the person who encouraged my university job application. It was a lovely time, but I learned a few things that are making me feel a little down today.

First, I learned that the job hasn't been filled yet, even though they dinged me! That hurts. I wish they had waited until the final decision was made. This makes me feel like I was an easy elimination. My friend, who has taken herself out of the selection process, was clearly surprised that I had gotten a ding.

Secondly, I found out that the husband of a friend of mine has lost his job. She has not been communicating with me and I sensed something was wrong. This is SO not good, because they have always lived high, and I will bet anything they have massive debt. I will try to reach out to her today.

Dinner itself was wonderful. It only cost $31 with tip included -- that's rare in the city! I had a half-order of both cannelloni and lasagna and a glass of wine. Salad and bread, too! It was very delicious.

I took the train, so there was no transit cost.

My brother will be arriving Sunday morning to deliver the dining room set! I'm so excited!

    Not a bad deal at all, for dinner with wine. Smile Looking forward to pictures of the dining room set.
    Still have envelope of stickers; was going to mail, then got another one.

    Sorry you weren't selected but the unknown is that the other candidates may like-wise have been dinged. Perhaps the hire has been shelved. My 1st reaction that the posted details were not in line with the duties. We'e all excited to see the dining suite, was your recovered sofa delivered? Are you happier with the fabric?

    No, my friend knows that there are two candidates still in the running. But I'm over it.

    Sofa has not been delivered yet, probably will not be ready until closer to Thanksgiving. I will post pictures when all is done!
