Today has been interesting to say the least.
I got up early, walked the dogs, chatted online, and went
to interview with CTO of company I really wanted to work for. The interview
was excellent, all of the interviews there were. The company rocks. Afterwards
the CTO said "I think we're good to go" and the Head Recruiter
said she would try to get back to me this afternoon or at the latest tomorrow
Excitement is not the word.
I rushed home and sat by the phone. I waited as if for my date to come
pick me up, told everyone, watched movie, ordered pizza, watched another
They offered me the job. With good money. :) I said yes. I had already
decided by that point that as long as they made me a decent offer I would
work for them.
I WAS SOOOO FUCKING HAPPY
I told everyone... celebrations are friday night at a local bar.
Then, after telling absolutely everyone I could think of I walked the
beasts and had a thought. "Hey, it would be cool to fly wuukiee out
here next weekend." I came home, asked her if she was free and if she
wanted to come then headed off to a friends for cookies, muffins, and
conversation. When I got back I accosted wuukiee online again and tried
to figure out some exact time-tables. That settled I was about to buy her
a ticket but as I was reserving it the price jumped $100. I'm not kidding...
IN the time it took to reserve it jumped. So, push the deal back one week
and low and behold we have our non-stop flight again at the old price.
YAY. Ordering through Yahoo / Travelocity was a majoy pain in the ass
so I just went to US AIR's site and ordered directly from them...This worked
So, I purchased my first plane ticket, which will ship my friend
to me in 3 weeks, got a job, and had a generally rocking day. Damn I love
this life. Whoever is watching out for me... THANK YOU.
