Open Thread Truth or Dare

Let’s get together and have some fun this week.

Truth: What is your food guilty pleasure? Not what you think is amazingly delicious and oh-so-fancy, but what you think is amazingly delicious, and which other people maybe think is bad for you or somehow gross. I love McDonald’s breakfast sandwiches. I only ever have them when hungover or on a road trip, but I think they are divine.

Dare: Enjoy a dance party at the store. You know, like when you’re shopping and they play your jam. Do a little dance!

My food groups are cheese, bacon, and hot tea. I like studying cities and playing with my cat, Buffy.

Can you call? I’ve done some clever internet searching and found out who the hiring person was and called to ask if my resume was received. They usually don’t have a problem telling you. Or just resend the packet. If they get it twice, they’ll raise their eyebrows, but will probably assume that you thought they didn’t get it.

The interview was with a recruiter who will pass my name to the hiring manager. I should hear from the hiring manager about an interview with him at the end of this week or the beginning of the next one. I was supernervous, and I know that was obvious, so we’ll see if I get the second interview. *fingers crossed* I did a little research and found out that the gutsiest question you can ask is “What would stop you from putting me forward, and can I address that concern immediately?” So I asked, and she said that it was just because my background is totally different from the job itself and they would worry that I was just doing this until I could find something better. So I got the opportunity to say that this was what I really wanted and not to count me out. Which was probably the least nervous answer I gave.

To make a long story short, I hate open-ended interview questions like, “What was your biggest challenge, and how did you overcome it using your favorite breakfast cereal?” so hopefully I hear from them later this week.

My biggest guilty pleasure, that even my husband is unaware of, is to make a single biscuit’s worth of dough I don’t even cook it, just chew on the dough, very weird but that gluteny chewiness is very tasty. That, or cheese, straight. I don’t go for fancies when I’m craving weird stuff.

I try to not feel guilty about any food choice, but the one I know I probably shouldn’t eat is fried salt pork. Between the salt and the fat, it’s a heart attack on a plate. I like it best when there’s enough salt to burn my mouth.

And I can pretty honestly say I’ve never heard one of my jams played at the grocery store, unless it was coming from my own earphones. (The day the Sav-a-Lot starts playing Nine Inch Nails, that’s the day they get all my money :-D). And yes, I do dance. Well, kind of, more groove than dance, but you know. I move however I want and dare anyone to laugh at me.
