First I went to work and it was actually somewhat busy for a change. Then I left work early to head to my second interview with the unnameable (thanks to an NDA) big .com company in Ann Arbor that went very well indeed. Nothing is official yet, but I’ve got good reason to believe I have landed the job. I should know for certain tomorrow and I’m pretty excited about it. It seems I know just enough Linux that I’m a good fit without knowing so much that they can’t train me to do things their way. Plus my potential boss has already done his homework and found my blog and it ended up being a positive as he likes people who are different and I’m pretty different. The work environment sounds refreshingly casual, I can wear jeans and t-shirts to work, and there’s lots of opportunities to learn all sorts of news things and expand my skill base. So that was all good and I came home with a very positive attitude.
Then I took my wife out to dinner and a little shopping because today is our seventh wedding anniversary. I brought her a bouquet of daisies and tulips and spent the evening out doing what she wanted to do. She picked up a few books at Borders and bought me a couple of pairs of jeans for the new job and then we had ice cream at a local shop. Her anniversary gift to me, which proves that I made the right choice in deciding to marry her, was a pre-order of Grand Theft Auto IV Collector’s Edition. Now I just have to be patient until it comes out on the 29th.
So, yeah, a pretty damn good day all around. I’m feeling good and things are looking up. With a little luck I’ll be getting back to posting on a regular basis here too.
