This morning the girls and I are having a sit at a local coffee shop. As of next wednesday I am officially employed again, having fought through a 3.5 hour interview yesterday. It looks like a pretty good gig, mostly open source software stack and not too much undue pressure. It’s warm and sticky in central Texas today, not wintry at all, more like a late Canadian Spring. Ah well, at least it’s below 80 degrees for now.
We brought the new (to us) car today. We call it black and tan after the famous drink. It’s a subtle car in some ways, you don’t feel your speed, even while accelerating quickly, but it really does go. It could use new plugs and a new air filter most likely, and that might improve the mileage some. But since I’m going to be working I’m not going to worry about the fuel costs too much, just put em down as a business expense and write off the tax.
It looks like mitda will be doing some political work for the next election. Perhaps she will make some contacts outside of the M/s community : ), although it’s with some slice of irony that a person in the M/s community has put her forward I’m a bit on the apathetic side viz politics but I don’t actually disagree with mitda’s goals so she’s welcome to have them. Certainly any new government is liable to be better than the current set of mofo’s.
So one more week at home with the girls and then back to work for me. Luc is certainly happy about it as money woes stress him more than the rest of us.
