Odd day again...

i am waiting on the results of 3 - yes, THREE interviews... 
Went for a Uni Help Desk one, very interesting and yes, i'd like this one.  New jobs being set up, brand new system to learn, good money and interesting.  There will be 2nd interview if they like me...  So far?  zilch.   They're in no rush, it doesn't happen until April...  *grinds teeth*
Second one, Ward Clerk at Addenbrookes...  been for one, who decided on someone else, by a short hair [they said] - would i consider another Ward?  yes, by all means - went and met them, they said they liked me and the 'manager'? would contact me about the money side of things...  So far?  yup, zilch - that will be a week ago tomorrow.
Lastly, Accounts Assistant for an Hotel - liked the FC, we spoke the same language and i was offered a decent wage - otherwise i wouldn't even have crossed the threshold after the last fiasco...  She said she should get back to me Thursday...  mmm, it's 18.09 now...  don't look like that is going to be today either...

This is the sort of sitch i purely hate...  Rush to go see and then they take their own sweet time, like you have nothing else to do and certainly don't need the money...  *grinds teeth again*
It's sign-in day at the Jobcentre again tomorrow - and the Re-Assessment man is coming round for the Housing Benefit...  Please can i kill him, if he doesn't put my rate up??  what is 'fair' about paying only part of my rent??  because it is based on what they THINK  i should be paying - NOT what i am actually shelling out...  where is the damn logic in that??

i am selling a whole load of stuff on EBay to try and get some cash in...  It is almost impossible to know what will sell and what won't...  so far i have for sale books of all kinds, some Conan comics, stamps, toys/action figures... even some placemats & coasters i bought in Aussie.   i'm registered as 'jillcro' if you wanna look... 
Looks like i got a buyer for the comics...good.

The Greek Dwarf appears to be still here??  clothes were festooned over the soddin' radiators again this morning - he waited until the lights were off in my room before he did this...  *snorts*   i could hear him shuffling about and wondered if he was up to something...  i said, 'he's leaving tomorrow' to myself and rolled over and went to sleep...
He has kept severely out of my way today and i have not actually laid eyes on him yet - he has the blinds AND the window closed.   i could hear a faint wail of sound before but he must have turned it right down or off, can't hear him at present...
From what landlord said, he should be out NOW, i gather..  Wonder if he is going to be brave enough to throw him out??  i could volunteer a hand...  wouldn't mind the chance to kick his ass...
i'm going to go cook some sausages now...  wonder if he will pop up like some demented genie?  *snerks*
more later....

I hate waiting....hope you hear something soon. They should just pay all your rent! Are you sure you're getting everything you're entitled to? I know peeps in a similar situation who get all their rent and council tax paid and have about £200 a week to spend. How come you're signing on? You have a stick and everything! I know you probably prefer not to depend on the state...but really you're entitled.

Love your Avi!!
Yes, they should be paying all my rent but some creep thinks my landlord is charging too much and that they will pay what they think it should be - don't know how they come to that crazy notion but they need to buck up their ideas...
Because it is a shared house, my landlord actually pays my council tax, can you believe?? One of the few really good things...

i have to sign on for Jobseekers, a) because i need the money and b) i can't get Housing without it... Catch 22. i have and will ask for everything i can get but you know what? if there are 46 clauses defining how you qualify, none of them will cover me - that you can make book on!!! It has happened to me SO OFTEN now, i have got to the point, i would be astonished if i was entitled to anything more.

i have to fight for every penny, even though they all agree (to my face) that i need help but are terrified i may get two pence more than it states on paper.

We have got so hidebound with that the Rules say, they are in danger of losing touch with what we really do need... Point in case? NOBODY told me i could claim Housing Benefit from the day i moved in but a bloke at the Jobcentre actually told me i could NOT until my Redundancy notice had ended. He had to be new as this only affects the actual Jobseekers Allowance, not the Housing!! i was able to back claim for the missing 11? days but only after i had PROVED to them that i had not had ANY income during those days - and i had to send them my bank statement to do so.... frickin imposition...

Yes, he is lingering like a bad smell... scurrying in like a rat late at night and draping what looks like his curtains and coverlet over the radiators, cleaning house? metaphorically, of course! i'll bet he doesn't actually clean the place when he goes...

Thank you, petal! This job sitch drags on like Macbeth's monologue, 'from day to petty day'... But it is VERY nice to be appreciated. *Blows kisses*
Nice avi...i must get you to make me some...if you ever have the time!!

What a flaming mess....

When I interviewed for the job I have now, it took them four months to decide to hire me. It boggles the mind!
