08:42 pm: Puppy procrastination
I waited what I considered a reasonable amount of time, and still didn't hear any news about the canine position. Finally I went knocking on the chief's door today to ask what the decision was. He said that the Port Director was not thrilled at having to decide between two trainees for the position, so instead he's not hiring anyone. He plans to advertise the position again "next calendar year." Since that could conceivably be anytime during 2010, I asked the chief specifically whether he thought that meant January, and he said probably yes.

On the bright side, this means I can go to Comiket!

In domestic news, I bought myself a new blender and a pair of pressure cookers (one large, one small). I'm continuing to experiment with making Indian food. My most recent dish was a three-legume curry that turned out quite well.

I'm looking forward to having my parents come visit starting this Friday. I hope they get to experience a lot while they are here.

Your new workplace fails at communication.

No kidding. ~_~

Just to be clear: the PD didn't like that both applicants were still trainees?

That's correct. Apparently he expected far more people to apply.

I feel a bit sorry for the canine corps, if they're feeling understaffed and have to wait 'til 2010 for relief.

Me too. The chief wanted to hire someone right away, but he was overruled.
