Or cut down anyway - on the smoking. Beware, life is about to get very... complicated around here.
And Canada has still not seen fit to tell me whether I'm hired or not, so I've decided that enough was enough and to take that annoying silence as a no. Maybe I was completely deluded to think that something good would come of this, huh.
This doesn't mean that if they were to condescend to hire me in 3 months, when spring thaw is complete, I'd say no, by the way. I have no dignity. I'd swim across the Atlantic if that's what it takes.
Anyway. Right now, I'm looking for other options. No kidding, people, know of anyone who needs a French translator? Copy-editor? PA? Maid?
