You might remember a while back when I told you about a phone interview that I was really excited about. I didn't give many details then because I didn't want to jinx things. Well, apparently it just wasn't meant to be because I wasn't chosen as one of the "cool" mommy bloggers. (Had I known who my competition was for the positions, I probably wouldn't have bothered. Read, I'm trying not to have sour grapes.)
The position was on a panel for Goldfish Crackers Fishful Thinking campaign. They chose 10 mommy bloggers to help them build the brand and get the word out about this new initiative. It's a great campaign with a really insightful message about instilling optimism in our kids, which is something that I definitely can get behind. And I have no doubt that the women they chose will indeed get the job done because they have connections and traffic stats that I can't even begin to touch. I was, however, really disappointed not to be chosen. (Suddenly I'm having flashbacks of 7th grade cheerleading tryouts)
Anyhoo, I was stunned when I received a large shipment from Fedex this afternoon. As a token of appreciation for doing the 30 minute phone interview for the panel, Pepperidge Farms sent me this really cool gift basket.
I put the girls next to it so you could get an idea of how big this basket truly is. When we opened it up, we found 21 full-size packages of Goldfish crackers in several varieties, as well as my absolute FAVORITE Milano cookies. Score!!
Note to future potential employers: If you decide after my dazzling interview that I am not the ideal candidate for the position, it would be fabulous if you would send me a delightful basket of my favorite things. That is all.
P.S. A huge THANK YOU to Mom Taxi Julie! I won a contest on her blog last week and today I received the book, "The Devil Wears Prada." Can't wait to read it!
