Interview prep

I have an interview today (at 1:30 p.m.) with a company that does HR stuff for a lot of other companies. The position is for a proposal writer. In my previous job I started as a proposal word processor and moved up to being largely a proposal writer in the first five years. Then I got into the web stuff. So I've got some experience, I'm comfortable talking with all kinds of people and making presentations in front of executives and the like.

I have printed out copies of my updated resume (no new content, but organized differently) along with a sheet with the requested references and a writing sample. It would be great if I had a decade-old proposal I could pull that sample from, but I just don't have access to those anymore. Instead, I pulled a piece of historical research I did for a gaming product and polished it up into a one-page summary of one of Europe's greatest leaders, the first caliph of Cordova.

Did laundry last night so my new dress shirt is clean and non-wrinkly. I have socks to match the slacks I'm picking up later.

I was planning on getting up about 10:00 a.m. to be able to shower, shave(!) and get over to pick up said trousers and the blazer from where they are being altered. Given the load of snow that was dumped on us here, I'm thinking 9:00 a.m. is going to be better. Yep, that's two hours away. Fortunately, I got some sleep last night and I'll be able to sleep after the interview before going in to work tonight.
