Squee! Part Zwei  
So, here I am in Albany- and quite unsurprisingly, I'm having a great time! My interview went really well, so with any luck, I'll at least have a contractor gig to look forward to in the near future. I'm really hoping for full-time, but at this point, I'd be happy with contract work. For one, it pays about double what I'm making now, so even if I work half as often this way, I'd be quite well off. For another- well, I'm pretty eager to get my arse out of Pittsburgh at this point. About the only things I will miss in the 'Burgh are a) slightly warmer weather (not by much) and b) hanging out with Daryl and Dave. But hey, Daryl's a native western NYer, I'm pretty sure I could drag him to the other side of the state at least for visits now and then, right? Right? ;) As for Dave, feh- if he can afford to go to Pascadena every year for the huge Trekkie convention, he can swing airfare to Albany ;)

Yeah, my job at home is getting pretty unbearable anymore. I work in this frigid, windowless basement in the scary-ass ghetto far far away from my apartment, doing stuff I'm not interested in doing. I'm starting to lose any and all sense of work ethic, which, for a normally conscientious person like myself, is very troubling. It's gotten to the point where, horrible as it is to admit, I'm just hoping someone comes by with a pink slip. Probably not going to happen, though, since they're pretty short-staffed. High turnover and such- what a surprise! *shrug*

Anyway, I'm happily in Albany now, so I will be concentrating on happier things. Last night I met Remy's friend James, who is quite quirky and fun. And he looks remarkably like lordjosh2004- seriously dude, standing next to each other, people would probably think you were brothers! Also watched Garden State, which I enjoyed. =) After breakfast at Dunkin Donuts today, I took Remy to his company meeting in Scotia, which was about a half-hour away. I got a rental car for the weekend, you see- a Chevy Aveo, only about 200 miles on it, so it isn't quite shit yet- and though I have gotten lost a couple of times, I've been doing rather well for myself. I was perfectly fine heading out to Scotia, as Remy was there to navigate, but on the way back, Mapquest lied its ass off and I had to improvise and stop at a Mobil for guidance. I could have done a lot worse, though, hehe. I also got hopelessly lost on the way to my interview yesterday- this isn't the best of trends ;) But with any luck, I won't get lost going back to Scotia this evening, since I just had that driving experience. I've graciously been invited to the dinner following the meeting, but said dinner may get canceled due to the snow. We'll see, I suppose!

Sarah and Dennis are on their way over to visit with me, which is mighty cool of them. I look forward to seeing them again. =)

Oh, and Mom, Ray, and Krissy are in Vegas right now. Join me in hoping that one of them hits it big (and cuts me in for some, heh heh)!

I'm not quirky, I'm just... uhhh... drawn that way?

Would that life were more like a cartoon! But I'd still possess knowledge of gravity, so I'd have to continue to avoid steep precipices and the like. ;)

I hate gravity. That's why I like to throw things in the air, to piss gravity off.
