Calm, Cool and Collected

I have been offered a contract. It is a real job with benefits. I was complimented on my composure during the interview. Well...

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

In other news, I worked 16 hours today. For the first 13 hours I was the JBC (Judge Booth Controller) operator for the Sullivan County Election Commission in the Tennessee state house and senate primaries. That means I gave people access codes for their electronic ballots, kept track of applications for ballots, and explained to senior citizens how to use a clicker wheel to make selections. I had a great time, mainly because I got to hang out with awesome old people who

- function more slowly than I do
- have awesome Tennessee accents
- talk about going to the Cherokee casinos to "make a donation"
- share stories about dead people on buses
- hand out suar-free candy
- advise me to marry a "good Annapolis midshipman"
- wonder if hummingbirds get diabetes since they drink all that sugar water

CONGRATULATIONS!

You have to share these stories about those old people telling you things... I am really, really curious now.

Yes, Katie, more stories please. And if you, my one fellow Ron Paul fan (from Hillsdale, anyway), marry someone in the armed forces, I cannot convey to you the feelings of betrayal I will experience.

Emily J said...

Oh, wait, I just remembered---you are not my only Hillsdale friend who is a Ron Paul fan. There is also Bethany Vancamp. :-D

Katie said...

Don't worry - I don't think I could marry anyone in the Navy seeing as my brother is an Air Force man. It might cause family problems.

Jessica Fox said...

Yay...so are you going to work instead of study then?

Lynn said...

I'm confused - are you not getting your postbacc after all?

Congrats on the job.

I'm lonely in a foreign country, but you're a sinner. Ha.
