OH MY GOD whyyyy did no one tell me you’re supposed to send thank-yous after interviews?? Why would I do that???

“Thank you for this incredibly stressful 30 minutes that I have had to re-structure my entire day around and which will give me anxiety poos for the next 24 hours.”

I HATE ETIQUETTE IT’S THE MOST IMPOSSIBLE THING FOR ME TO LEARN WITHOUT SOMEONE DIRECTLY TELLING ME THIS SHIT

NO ONE TOLD YOU???? WTF! I HAVE FAILED YOU.

Also:

Dear ______:

Thank you so much for the opportunity to sit down with you (&________) to discuss the [insert job position]. I am grateful to be considered for the position. I think I will be a great fit at [company name], especially given my experience in __________. [insert possible reference to something you talked about, something that excited you.] I look forward to hearing from you [and if you are feeling super confident: and working together in the future].

Sincerely,
@mellivorinae

THIS IS A LIFESAVING TEMPLATE

YOU ARE WELCOME

Do you have a particular food that you used to be very fond of that is not often found any longer? I was just poking through my binder of Tudor period recipes and found a one for custard tarts using bone marrow, and it got me to wondering.

Ohhh…the Lombardy Custard! I do miss seeing that around. I’d have to say the most common one I’ve not seen in a while is a true sack wine posset. Real mince pies are delicious. Been a while since I had an old weak beer.Terrapin stew, jellied eels.

I think by far and away, I miss the flavors of spices and combinations used. It was exceedingly common to see meat and fruit together in dishes, but this doesn’t appear to be common anymore except in non-western traditions, which is probably why these days I like Southeast Asian, Chinese, and Indian, Greek, and so forth.

Idiots go on and on at me about pineapple on pizza. Forgetting that tomato is a fruit. Fruit and meat balance well together. Always have. I’m of the old way. I cannot help it.

Banana fort. Would not withstand any frontal assault of any army I’ve been a part of. Unless of course the army is laying siege to get the bananas.

It is clear that you are skilled at dissecting humans – assuming you have decent needlework skills (idk if you do or not), do you imagine you could, for example, remove someone’s appendix if called upon? I mean to say, of course, could you do so in such a way that the patient could survive and recover?

What makes you think I haven’t?

I’ve been a butcher, a baker, a candlestick maker. I’ve herded, tailored, built and dismantled. Dig ditches, laid track, run booze, run errands.

I’ve done a great deal, and all while listening to the sound of your bodies.

I daresay, if I had to, I could do any number of things to a human body.
