Tribute to Northanger Abbey

Below is something I did over at Panhistoria.com for 5 word poetry contest. And, being a fan of Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey, I thought I had a go.  :)

Tribute to Northanger Abbey
Date written: 10/9/2009

There in the blackness outside of the god-forsaken
And very ancient castle where it is
rumored to have ghosts, goblins,
vampires and such.

Suddenly clash of thunder traveled
Through the darkness of the clouds overhead
of the ancient castle and flash of lightening
to give it an eerie feel.

Dearest Catherine’s dream came true when she
Arrived at Northanger Abbey.
Reading a favorite book about the heroine whose
Heart is broken and who is terrified as
To what her capturer will do to her.
Because she has heard the owner’s late wife was
Found dead…Did he bled his wife to death?

Or was it vampires?
Or did Catherine’s love for the gothic romance?

Perhaps after all it is possible to
Read too many novels.


Jobs, where are you?

Being unemployed for nearly 3 years coming up in next month and I would like to know where are the jobs?
So far I have had at least one or two job interviews in the past two months with no such luck of getting hired.  :(

Over the weekend, I had a fun group interview for the position of Membership Sales Rep.  for a local non-profit museum (Pacific Science Center)for their upcoming exhibit (King Tut); which sounds so exciting and the last time I saw this upcoming exhibit was in 1977 when it came for the first time to Seattle.

I have two job interviews schedule this week, one is for the same museum that is mention above but this is for a volunteer position and that is tomorrow (24th of April) and the other is for Wednesday the 25th for actual job as a sales associate.

But in the meantime, I do my volunteer job for Membership at another local museum (Museum of Flight); which is fun. 

So we will see how my interviews go and to see whether or not I get a job.
