I'm feeling Friday


I gave up expecting anything before Christmas just so I could be surprised.

Unrelated note: " 'if only if only' the woodpecker sighs 'the bark on the tree was as soft as the skies'" has been stuck in my head all morning.


That was exactly what I thought of when I first read your post :)

Now kiss! :wink:

The wait is making me really crazy

For what it's worth there is a thread somewhere (I can't remember exactly where) were Mike Spivey advised to wear a collared shirt and no tie.

Everything reopens on January 2nd, although a lot of folks are taking the 2nd and 3rd off (because at that point . . . why not).

So, for what that's worth.


That makes sense. So JS2's on Friday/Monday are possible.


and hopefully JS1s :|


I hate every email that isn't a JS1 invitation.


I have unsubscribed from SO many emails because they WEREN'T JS1's.

It's... It's been a rough month.

Guys, a friend of mine just posted on his Facebook wall 18 minutes ago that he has received a JS2. Looks like today's the day.

Does anyone else really just not want to know...but can't stop refreshing this page anyway? I think I would feel less anxious without knowing that today's reckoning day!

I seem to remember the consensus being these calls usually start way later in the day... am I wrong about that?

Idk there have been a fair amount of JS1's since the last wave so they may have some catching up to do before the holidays.

Well on the second day of JS2s this cycle it started early in the morning so I don't think time of day matters necessarily

Seriously. I only check into this forum like once every few days for this exact reason... and during that 30 minutes this gets posted!

There are people who interviewed on the 13th and 14th ITT. Once one of them reports a JS2, I can get anxious.
