I had a spate of horrible dreams last night interspersed with a lot *a lot* of waking up.
The coffee this morning is mandatory to even get my eyes uncrossed, let alone make myself lucid enough to talk coherently and smile at the same time with a minimum of "ums".

I always forget until they're asking that they ask lame lame "so, name three of the best things about yourself... name three of the worst" So I end up saying really really lame things.
"uhm... I'm punctual, I make good coffee and I'm a good kisser..... uh...."

If I worked in HR it would be a talk about movies and music and tv becuase I'm one of those snobs who thinks you can learn a lot about a person and their intelligence just by talking about popular culture with them. Not like "only dumb people watch MTV" but more like... "why do you enjoy the back street boys" and checking out for "I dunno" and "my friends like them" answers.
A preponderance of wrestling and race car driving in the tv interest list would be suspect.
As would van damme and segal talked about as great actors.

I'm out of it and trying to get into my right frame of mind for this.
Which is that I'm a gaddamned intelligent person and I'm funny as hell and I'm nice and polite and well mannered and they're really really stupid if they decide not to hire me, even if I didn't have 2 years of quick acceleration through the ranks of retail under my belt.

But then I'm going to sit down there and just be a goober. Hehe.
I always am, but they hire the nice dumb girl anyway. ::smirk::

I had to go pee in a cup.
Drug testing makes me angry.

But also raises the question... how long does mdma stay in your system?

Though MDMA is not specifically tested for in the standard 'NIDA-5" drug tests, it is chemically closely enough related to amphetamines that recent MDMA users will test positive in both amphetamines (a common test) and methamphetamines (a somewhat newer and less common test). Because of this, the detection periods for MDMA are going to be very similar to those for amphetamines. Another important point is that many tablets of street ecstasy are not pure MDMA and frequently includes amphetamines (and may also contain DXM, caffeine, MDA, MDE, ephedrine etc).

Detection Period
Amphetamines are standardly detectable in urine for 24-96 hours after use (72 average). Methamphetamines stay in the system slightly longer, 24-120 hours.

I didn't *think* it would still be around... but I'm used to taking more uh .. long lasting things... so I was a lil paranoid.
Thank you, Erowid.
