Concerned that the five-day "limit" for keeping canned pumpkin in a refrigerator sealed container was not just some paranoid warning, I used the leftovers of Halloween's confectional party to make batch numbers three and four of the pumpkin chocolate chip cookies--each cookie being quite a bit more saccharine and diametrically wider, thanks to overcompensation for the surplus of canned pumpkin (>1 1/2 cups) that needed to be used.

The cookies coalesced with one another as they baked, thanks to my successful attempt to have at least 95% of the batter used in the cookies (none of it was to go to waste.) I really should have baked it in cake form and cut up the cookies into squares after having fully baked.

As that was the highlight of today, it wasn't the only notable of today. The potential enabler of old (old~three days ago) called me. What I had thought was a faux pas on my part on Friday apparently was not (or perhaps they are in pressing need of a filler). This would have been wonderful if any of the circumstances not only had been changed but also had not worsened: Not only would Saturday have been a work day, but it also would have been the only work day for what seemed to be the unforeseeable future. Furthermore, the super-standardizing agenda was still in effect, so I provided the main reason for my having to choose not to proceed (i.e. my opportunity was too distal at this point).

Crying and dying on the inside, there was some solace in the fact that it was grossly warm outside. While the idea of a very early-arriving Spring is amazing, it is not so amazing before the month of January (certainly not before December, when one is ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas snow and Christmas tress/decorations). At this point, however, I am just hoping that it will snow on Thanksgiving Day. Please simmer down for the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons, global warming.

This Friday was abundantly pressuresome. Having researched the company to which I had hastily applied, I found that much involving the general prerequisites and the extent of what my responsibilities would have been had been withheld. Furthermore, despite how ideal I imagine the schedule would have been (e.g. an guaranteed afternoon starting time), the location--also not further specified than being in this vast city area--is about two hours away (one-way), excluding a train transfer that would possibly have required another hour's wait.

I at least returned their phone call, for not to have done so would have been rather rude. I know not why my stomach was in 22372342 knots in anticipation of the phone call or what I had been imagining would be a telephone screening (They are apparently very selective.) The distance and the cost to my already vacuous wallet had already left me uninterested and back at Square One, which alone is an added pressure because of my determination to be rather participatory in this year's upcoming holiday season.

Another source of pressure was, actually, also auto-induced. This one was more intense, because I thought that my overanalysis and what I had thought was my inadequacy had cost a very appreciated bond. I am rather relieved that something that I very much cherish has been preserved. Thanks be to God; الحمد لله.

Now for today's little character tables:
