The Eyes have it

My niece has amazing eyes. She has my brother's eyes, the lucky girl!

I love Europe, and living in France is wonderful. But I miss my family. (Maybe I get along so well with them and miss them because I rarely see them...LOL. This might be true. )

Anyway, not much to blog about today. I'm off for another job interview this afternoon - I've been looking for work, and I already found one job working on a newsletter for a cosmetic research database, and now I'm off to see about sorting mail and writing letters in English for a scientist/researcher in the next village. I have No idea what this job entails, except that it's in English, requires someone who knows their way around the internet and can work on computers. I'll try to write more when I find out more. Until then, I'm imagining all sorts of things. A mad scientist. A dark and gloomy mansion. A labyrinth of echoing hallways. Tall trees leaning over the gravel drive. Crows cawing incessently in the yew, a room full of stacks of paper, reams of work to be shelved and sorted, and huge, leather-bound books with strange symbols on them...
OK, let's put a lid on the imagination and wait 'til we get there.

No mad scientist, just a very charming scientist-slash-researcher!
I got the gravel drive right - and there were lots of trees (but no crows).
Nothing gloomy - very bright and modern office. I showed him my website as I left, and he followed the links to my blog and read about my wild imagination, sent me an e-mail, and (thankfully) has a good sense of humor.

Good luck.

Since you're married you can't even imagine a hot scientist à la Indiana Jones. :)

Hi Gabriele -
That didn't even occur to me - I guess I have a one-track imagination!

I think I would kill for eyelashes like that, not to mention her pretty eyes. She's a cutie for sure! Don't you think she looks a little like Suri Cruise?

I loved your decscription of the mad scientist.

Rosie said...

That is a seriously beautiful child.

I love your blog. I just read the last three posts in a row. I feel like we are having a chat every time I visit.

Sam said...

Hi Daisy -
I will tell my sister in law you said that - she'll be thrilled!

Rosie - thank you! I'm glad you drop in, and I'm glad you like my ramblings!

You know what they say, the greatest horrors come wrapped in sunshine and smiles! ;)

Sorry, just teasing. I'm sure that would be very interesting as a job. And the scientist is probably safe.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I've added you to my blog roll.

You'd be just right for some sort of public relations job... with writing and computer skills.

My son's girlfriend just graduated college with a degree in public relations... and is interviewing for her first job. (Starting salary: $50k!)

I'm so glad my boys aren't interested in going into the arts... I know that sounds awful, but it's true.
