Well... shit.

So, remember how when I posted about my blue hair that it was a sure sign I was going to be getting a job soon?

Guess what?

After several rounds of phone interviews, I have a face-to-face with the head of HR next week.  It's a bit of an entry level, but they're actually considering me for several positions, and it's a big company so there's lots of movement potential.  She even said that if I had just a bit more experience, they'd be considering me for a higher up position.  So... yeah... I've been here before in the past year.  A lot.  But I have a good feeling about this one.

I also... have blue hair.
See? )

It's toning down, but it's still recognizably not natural.  So now I need to decide what to do.

1.  Tell them the truth, interview with blue hair, and hope that doesn't blow my chances.

2.  Get a box dye from the drug store and hope I don't destroy it all to hell and back (because I can't afford a pro-fix before Tuesday).

3.  WIG!!
Wig! )

Why yes, I did just happen to have this sitting around.  Which is lucky, cause the rest of my wig collection is still down in L.A.  I just took it out of the bag, so I need to let it  air for a few days to settle.  But... it doesn't look too bad. Actually, I look a lot more professional and put together than my usual blowsy-frowsy self.

Any opinions?

So, I was waiting to post anything til it was all signed sealed and delivered, but I have some awesome news. I just got hired as an assistant acquisitions editor for an academic press in Washington DC! I'll be acquiring for their anthropology list, about 30-40 titles a year to start. I'm moving to DC at the end of the month, and I start on October 1st.

So, like, whoa!

Details about goodbye parties, etc, will be forthcoming. For now, I must spin...
