Speechless

Remember that one lone job application I sent in late November? I got an email today that they are interested in setting up a phone interview with me when I return from Brazil. I was speechless when I saw it, and then, of course, I totally panicked. What do I do now? I mean, how do I prepare for a phone interview? And, again, what if I get offered a job?! Well, I'll leave those considerations for later, it does feel good to think that my work is worth something, and that I may get a shot at academia after all...

On other news, the boys and I are doing well. My father recovered, my mom got sick (on Saturday) and recovered, and my brother and sister-in-law caught it too and are recovering. I hope this virus stops here! (I mean, at least for our family :) The weather is still nice and cool, and I'm enjoying it, even though I am wishing for hot weather for 9 days from now, when we get to the beach. I should post some pictures soon. Oh, and I have a book meme to respond to as well, I'm working on it, Sandra!

Oh, and I am so sorry to hear your family caught the bug as well. Sucks, doesn't it? I hope they recover quickly.

I wanted to ask a totally different thing: my dh's work colleague is Brasilian and they say they like to party on the beach for Christmas & New Year. How DO you guys celebrate Christmas there? Do you have any Christmas trees, for instance (in Ecuador they do but they were not fir trees but different kinds of trees trimmed into a cone shape, not the same at all) ...
