more blankness

I love the white-noise that comes off a phrase like "it's not quite for us". It's right up there with ...

It's not a good fit for us.
It's not what we're looking for.
It's not what we're looking for at this time.
It's not the direction we're leaning towards.

... and so on.

**Bonus Noise**
The "Sorry about the time it's taken to bear bad news" part refers to the one year it took them to get back to me. That, after I had to ask them where my manuscript was. The one they lost. The one I had to re-send. What a satisfying conclusion to a long, pointless episode.
