The phone interview, she is over. Thank goddess.

The job, she is probably--definitely--not for me (I was hearing "brush off" in the interviewer's sign-off; that may have just been her haste, but then again.....).

At least that's my immediate, post-interview stance. It sounded like a writing job, but it really is more of a marketing job.

A "self-funded" marketing job.

And we all know how I feel about marketers, don't we? (We don't?) Well, when I was in an MBA marketing program in the mid-1980s (it was a phase), a professor said, "Your paycheck is life's report card."

I was stunned. Disgusted. Aghast.

My classmates, however, thought it was the most inspirational thing they had ever heard.

In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if some of them had their grandmothers embroider a pillow with that sentiment, so they could keep that glorious phrase near them even during their leisure.
