Great London Beer Festival 2007, and interview review

Beer festival: manged to catch up with indigo_violet, which was cool. Tried three ciders, a half or less each, as follows:
Gwatkin Foxwhelp (described as very dry): musty, full-on basement taste. Thank God it was only a third.
Hancock's medium blend (described as sweet): syrupy and gross. Poured a bit out as I got a half of this and it was too much.
Somebody's Funky Something (rum cask) (perhaps Heck's Yarlington Mill but I think it had some kind of Welsh sounding name): really overall not so great either, finished it up but only because I got bored waiting for shadowdaddy to come back with his third beer.

I'm thinking maybe I need to be sticking to the French ciders. The pamphlet says of traditional ciders, "If you have not tried these before you will be pleasantly surprised." I beg to disagree.

Um, interview. I got the feeling I didn't look nice enough for this company and that I answered the questions in too rambling a manner. I need to avoid going into any kind of meta discussion when I'm in an interview and, now that I've spent so much time on the other side of the table, it's a bit difficult to restrain myself - it's like my dad is bleeding through me or something. I was also a bit creeped out that they were so concerned with people who'd done well at school, and that they called this "switched on." I know piles of people who are very intelligent and didn't even finish school - why do they think it's such a big deal? I'm way more concerned with what a person has been doing since school, especially if they've been out for 15 years. I briefly thought it would be a really cool place to work, but ... I've pretty much already written it off. Next!

Now to pack for tomorrow, and see if Harry (Dresden) conquers the evil necromancers.
