What's in my inbox?

It started with this:

And then this:

And this is a chronology of how I reacted:
Aug 5: "Man! That's soo cool! I'm going to keep this email forever!" (Proceed to forward the email to the nerdy friends I have)
Aug 8: "Errr, why is an Engineering Manager interviewing me? Logic problems? Algorithms? CODING EXERCISES? But I'm a BA! What is this role?"
Aug 10: I get forwarded this link from a friend. "OMG, I can't answer questions like those!!!"
Aug 11-13: Busy setting up Ruby on Rails on my Mac.
Aug 14
10.00hrs: "Hrm, I can't remember anything about Java. Better refresh my memory."
(rock back and forth on chair)
18.30hrs: Flatmate closes doors to living room to give me privacy.
19.01hrs: "WHY HAVEN'T THEY CALLED?!?"
19.02hrs: Google calls :)

The guy who interviewed me was really nice. He made the phone interview really easy for me. To be honest, I was a wreck. I stumbled through my questions and I'm not really sure now what I said :P So, another week till I hear back... It's funny how there are some companies out there that I will just worship. I don't remember being this freaked out about an interview before. It doesn't matter if I don't get the job, it's just cool that Google was a part of my life for 31 minutes and 40 seconds :) For those in Rondon, you can check out Google jobs here.

That is COOL. I'm impressed at anyone who actually understand things like "java" and "coding" and "algorithms". And it was for Google! *cue girly gasp* Nice work reenie.
