The Capitol Horsham. . .

is soooo cool!! They have three "film" Projector's, all Victoria 5's and one DIGITAL projector that is like, REALLY cool looking. ..They are also a Theatre as well and all of the projectionists are actually techies for the Theatre (they were really excited about the prospect of having somebody who is specifically trained in Projection!!) and they want to employ me on a casual basis to start off with but one of their guys is leaving soon and there is the possibility I could step into a full time job!! And if I do get a full time position there they will train me in Lighting and Sound technical stuff for the Theatre side of things!!! EEEKK!! Shelley is a little afraid that if I do get the full time position I won't want to leave as it'll be like my IDEAL job!!
Oh, and the guy who "interviewed" me was from Hutt Valley and he said "Us Kiwi's have got to stick together" which was really cool :)
So, as soon as I get my National Insurance Number (England's version of an IRD number), which will be happening on Tuesday, I will be getting a couple of "training" shifts to get me back up to speed :) Oh, and also to teach me how to operate a projector WITHOUT AUTOMATION EEEK!!
YAY for incoming money!! (Even if it is only £6.35/hr for casual shifts, it's still better than nothing!!)

More good news too, just received a letter inviting me to an interview for a Learning Support Assistant role (basically like a Teacher's Aide).
YAY

Good Luck for everything. LSA would be OK down there...and you would probably still be able to do projection stuff around that as well...
Let us know...
I am going to book the panto for the 28th...

Hey there! And - YAY!
I hadn't caught up with this news yet, sorry. Have been meaning to read this blog for ages, but keep forgetting. Am now trying to add a feed for it to my Live Journal friends page ... but I've kinda forgotten how ... oh well, will get there in the end.

Anyway, it sounds like a cool place. Hope you are having fun there. :)

LOL! It'll be second nature in no time. :P
