job interviews, pools and plates
oy. had a job interview friday at a cooperative bakery i like. i think i botched the interview. i got so nervous, twitchy and inarticulate. and i said some just stupid stuff. i even forgot what i'd been asked a few times. i managed to in turn both ramble and answer abruptly. nerves. what can you do. yoga i guess.
speaking of exercise, i miss swimming at the ucsf pool. (and i miss the sauna even more!) i'm trying the local parks and rec pool out. it's longer, which is good. and outdoors, which is both good (sunlight) and bad (will get cold). the floor is tiled, and it's pretty to look at the sun/shadow patterns on the floor while swimming. it gets really wavy, which i'd like to say is cool/more natural, but it sucks when you go to take a breath and catch a wave in your mouth. and the lanes are too wide. there are only two lanes! too many people swimming around each other/narrowly avoiding kicking each other in the head. the main problem however, is the locker room. it's somewhat swampy (ew). and no place to hang anything (shampoo, towel) in the shower. and of course, no sauna. but i'm not ready to fork over a bunch of moola for 24 hour fitness or the like yet.
bugheart gwen inspired me with all her RAD collections and collection collages. the above photo is part of my collection of swedish plates. every time i go back, i go to the used plate store and buy a few plates. it's hard to choose because there are so many beautiful patterns. some of the above i'm no longer that excited about. it's challenging to pack plates for transatlantic travel. i spose i could ship them, but thus far i've managed not to break any plates in travel.
here is a closeup of the bluebells on the blaklocka cup.
and another plate closeup.
and one last.
