My 1st Self Gloss - I Gots Me A Job!

Feel free to pile on with the Cargo Bay, etc., I don't care!

As some of you know, and even fewer really care, I moved back to Seattle (from Maui) this summer. We took our time getting settled in, spending two months in San Francisco first, then goofing off for the rest of the summer in Seattle. I started looking in earnest in October and by the end of November I was getting pretty bummed. Lots and lots of system generated 'thanks but no thanks', but only a few nibbles. After Thanksgiving I'd pretty much given up looking until after the New Year. But, to my surprise, December is actually a very active month, as companies position themselves to bring on new staff right at the start of the year. Such was my case, I was contacted by Expedia the week before Christmas, have been through two interviews, and got the offer today.

Starting next Tuesday, I'll be Expedia's newest package pricing analyst, working in Bellevue. Needless to say, I'm very psyched, thus the self gloss, but some of you have been asking how the job hunt is going, so this is my way of letting you know! Yeah me!

I'm sure that's not the only thing you do that will be 'well analyzed'!  Wink

Oh and thank you!

WAY TO GO DUANE! Even if you are selling out to a Microsoft spin-off, you're getting yourself semi-into the industry and from what I've heard Expedia is actually a pretty good company. Now how are you ever going to survive the Seattle-Bellevue commute which can take up to an hour each from what I hear on the I-90 floating bridge? (poor guy, I feel for ya.)

So how about finding me a deal for tickets to Hanoi in April?  Wink

Hey, this is my self gloss thread - go make your own to cruise in!  Silly

I've been doing some contract work in the same area, and at least in the AM, its not bad. I've never had to drive back at rush hour, so that could be a challenge. You can check my stress level next week to see how its going.

Oops sorry for not explaining it. I've heard a rumor Cruise Liners employ many crew members. Lots of men at sea. So I thought I was clever and called them Sea Men.

I've also heard if you need them during the trip you say "All hands on deck." And then there will be lots of Sea Men all over.

hahaha.....Wait.  Wow! I've never thought about it like that. Good question. Hmmmm. I believe so. But when the shit hits the fan the seamen will be all over the walls.

I'm already declining a dozen requests a week from him. For the billionth time, Gav, I'm have no desire to check out your "Shitty Shitty Gang Bang" DVD. Jeez!
