Job interviews. I have one today, and even when I feel pretty confident about them, I still get so nervous! My current worries are: I didn't write the time down right and I'll actually show up three hours late, I'll say something extremely stupid, I won't be able to think of anything to say at all... The list goes on and on. Someday I might get over this, right? It seems doubtful. Anyone have any anti-nervousness tips?

In order to distract myself from my public-speaking and interviewing woes, I would like to share a story with you all: it is called "The Day Mat Decided We Should Stretch a String Across the Two Peaks of Twin Peaks." It begins with Rhonda coming into my room and saying, 'Do you want to come to Twin Peaks and stretch a string across the peaks?' To which I replied, 'What? Why?'

'Because,' Rhonda responded.

'Because why?' I asked, still confused.

'Because!' Mat shouted from the kitchen.

'I don't understand,' I said, getting up and putting my shoes on, 'but should I take my camera?'

'Yes,' was the unanimous reply. And we were off. The rest shall be told in photo form:

We stretched a string across Twin Peaks. Why? Because!
