Looks like I'll be adding some orange to my wardrobe

No, I'm not joining the Carrot Common Corp. (can you believe that actually exists?), I'm going to be an NDipper!

The whole story starts last summer when I had a job interview for a media relations position with the provincial NDP. I didn't get the job, but the kind people working in the NDP Caucus office said they really liked me and I narrowly missed getting the position. I sent them a lovely Thank You card, hoping that would persuade them to think of me the next time a similar position comes up.

Well, let me tell you, it pays to send a Thank You note! Yesterday, after an awful day at the gallery (the folks from Halifax came and took almost all of our artwork), I came home and the phone rang. It was a nice gentleman with the NDP Caucus office calling to offer me a job! A media relations/outreach position that doesn't require me to move to Halifax! I can stay right where I am and will start as soon as possible. I was completely in shock (I'm still not sure if this is all a crazy dream) and can't wait to go to Halifax on Monday to meet my new coworkers. Holy jeez. I have a job, folks! A real job in my field! This really rocks my socks (handknit socks, by the way -- this is still a knitting blog, after all!).


  1. Oh no! Does this mean less knitting?

    I mean, congratulations!!

  2. Thanks Shannon!

    Nah, I don't think the new job will affect my knitting productivity. I'll still be knitting like a mad woman, albeit while spinning (pun intended) the NDP rhetoric.

  3. Another hearty congrats!

    When you go to Halifax try to not to let things slip like, "I'm really excited about Stephen Harper's plan for a green Canada. I think he goes even further than he needs to in the name of the environment." Or, "What an impressive unblemished record Rodney's racking up!"
