So today is the day. My interview. I think I'm ready, I've looked at possible interview questions, gone over the selection criteria, am wearing a great suit...I even had a dry run last Friday (I know, I'm anal) to check how long it would take me to get there and park nearby and walk in. I work about 3km from the CBD at the top of a hill and the bus route is very unreliable.

Today I woke up to the radio and discovered a spanner in the works. Sunday was the A-League (our national soccer competition) Grand Final. The Brisbane Roar made it for the first time after a few terrible seasons. The game was amazing, nil all at full time, down 2-0 during extra time to come back with two goals during the final 5 minutes. Then in the penalty shoot-out they won 4-2. It was the best soccer game I've ever been to (of maybe 5 games :-P).

Today there will be a parade in the city to celebrate their win. Sending thousands of people to the public square I need to be at for my interview...at the time I need to be there. It could be an absolute nightmare for traffic and parking. Stressing a little but I do have a backup plan. Was tempted to just have the day off 'sick' but I couldn't bring myself to do it.

Wish me luck.
