My name is Phil

Phil Space. I am an Entry. I will talk about things that are not videos. Are you sitting comfortably? Then I’ll hand over to Clarissa.

Thanks Phil. Hello everyone. There were things I wanted to write Friday night but I can’t remember half of them now. I had a haircut. I also bleached & dyed it… and although I’d chosen a more subdued shade of red it turned out very bright red. *lol* So I ended up dyeing it again tonight to make it look more first-day-at-work compatible. Not that it’s made much difference.

While dyeing my hair I managed to ruin another pyjama top, and the bathroom also looks like I’ve killed someone in there (the spilled hair dye looks remarkably like blood!). Must clean that soon. I’ll also have to repaint those walls before I move out I think (this wasn’t the first time I made a mess). I might get away with just doing those spots… but somehow I doubt it.

On Friday (before the dyeing thank God) one of the agency people came round with some prospective buyers. I’d of course forgotten all about it, and tho the flat generally looked fairly respectable and clean, there were a few things to be embarrassed about. :)) (like freshly done laundry not yet put away) So I must prepare better next time. 😐

I had my 999 call taker assessment on Saturday. It was quite an interesting experience. Everyone at these things says “don’t be nervous” etc, but I rarely am. Maybe I should be (and thus be less nonchalant) but oh well. Anyway. There were 10 of us in our group. They tested a total of 44 people over 2 days – they’d had over 500 applications!!! So of course they assured us that even if we weren’t selected, we had ‘excelled’ to even make it that far. 😛 Am actually quite impressed I did! :))

The assessment was twofold: one written test where you had to work out things based on instructions while getting the necessary background information from leaflets provided – testing attention to detail and general logic / algebra I would say. And then two mock calls where they tested your customer service skills and your ability to ask relevant questions and take down details correctly.

It’s hard to judge how I did. Of course I thought of countless things I could’ve done better once I was done, but oh well. It was interesting to see the Sussex Police HQ, and everyone was cute. I still kinda wanna work for them, be it in this position or another. Police = sexy. For some reason.

After this I went straight to London to worship my Lord. She was ill, poor darling. I mean, poor deity. We almost exclusively watched TV and Ellie’s SNL DVDs, and generally lay about. And I read any new trashy gossip magazines I could lay my hands on. Mel also urged everyone (well, Ellie and Kat) to watch my silent movie – so cute! :)) She is a good God. *pats* er, I mean *worships*

Now I shall go to bed. Well, soon. Work tomorrow. How… weird. Not done that in a while. A long long while. I’ve spent a fortune this past month – good thing I’ve finally got some money coming in again. :wh

PS. Oh yeah I’ve updated my MySpace profile with a few more questionnaires.

I hate this fucking retarded MySpace shit. They always want to redirect me to their shit German pages, when I click a link and when I absolutely do not want to view their shit German pages. Bleh.

Stealing anyway. Questionnaires I mean.

They’ve already made her their slave, and she’s gonna have to live in a cave and will never come back, hehe.

:)) Yep. Locked up in Amex House forever. Went ok. Might blog about it later. Or maybe not. Dunno yet.
