Re: The Results (Long)/Addendum
eccentrics that I have to remind myself that eccentricity isn't always a mark of brilliance. After meeting and befriendng trans-gendered tarot readers, Gothic wicca with harps, Catholic monks with a fondness for brandy and Fats Waller, and writers who do sword exercises late at night when writers' block strikes, I don't imagine there's much that couldn't surprise or delight me.
The same goes for the interviewer, of course. If an interviewer greets me in ragged jeans and a torn T-shirt, then plants his sandalled feet on the desk so that I can see his filthy feet (which actually happened to me once at a reasonably large company), I think I have the right to be a little insulted.
