This is more of a "hooray" than a rant. I hate job-searching! The HR process takes so long. I want at least a phone interview from somewhere.

However, and this is the "hooray" part, the Museum of Folk Art in Santa Fe says the status of my application is "eligible!" Huzzah! I think I'd love Santa Fe. I think I'd like some of the other things I applied for, too. I just have to keep myself together at work here for one more week, which is hard (seriously, you help bring a place back from Katrina and this is your repayment), then find a job, which may be harder.

The other nibble is in Fayetteville, NC. They say my application's status is "qualified, referred." This is for genealogy and local history librarian. Ironically, I know people in N.C. because of genealogy, which is a hobby of mine (distant cousins who had lunch with me and my family when they visited New Orleans. I email with one of them pretty regularly and she is very nice).

I think I could move. I did spend many summers as a kid in the Pacific N.W. However, I am a 9th generation New Orleanian and probably one of very few Americans who can say they can walk to the house where their great-grandparents lived (or, for that matter, drive 45 minutes to the tomb of their greatx3 grandparents). Kind of an "always a Baggins" moment.

Rumple, I love your grandfather's saying! Heh!
