    Sounds.

    The two loudest sounds you will ever hear:

    1. The sound of "bang" when you expect it to go "click."
    2. The sound of "click" when you are expecting to go "Bang."

    While your daughter says the same thing, and your wife says "We need to talk".

    ANd NO, I haven't been dumb enough to end up in this situation.

    Yeah. Guy told the headhunter that I "wasn't the right fit" for the position. Guess he wanted someone cleanshaven. :)

    Oh, well... If I can get out of that darn walking brace, there's a guy down in Norwood who might be interested in me... but it involves a lot of running around to different sites. He took one look at me when I interviewed and said "You can't do the job in that!"

    If I can get out of the brace... Don't know how that will play out. We'll see.

    Could you attach some skateboard wheels to that brace along with a really small gas engine?

    Just tryin' to help out a pal. :D

    Y'know, I saw someone with a gas-powered skateboard on Boylston Ave about 10 years ago... I still want one. :D

    So, we may be on to something!

    Now, can you sell the idea to potential employers? Maybe you could grow your beard a bit longer so you could hide the works.

    You're girlfriend on the side saying a couple days later, "Nevermind, Mr. Monthly came to visit."


    And I'm really sorry Ross, that sucks. I was really pulling for you.

    Thanks, C-pher. Well, maybe it's for the best... I'd really prefer something in Metrowest, anyway. Commuting into Boston really sucks.

    Just have to keep looking.

    Hang in there Ross, something will pop up. I speak from experience. :D BTW - you should tell them that you're a dwarf and they're supposed to have beards, so shaving is out of the question. The Great Dwarven God of Chainmail will visit you during the night and beat you senseless with his turkey drumstick if you shave, so you can't.

    Hell Ross, if the business was bigger, I'd convince you to move to VT.

    I have no aversion to beards. And most of the locals here don't care anyways.

    Just let me know if you hear that VT Teddy Bear Co is looking for a telecom manager. [wink]

    Seriously, though, I don't see a move in the forseeable future. Kath's very happy in her job and has built a good career; I think that they'll have to carry her out feet first! I don't think she'll retire from there until they make her. So we're pretty well locked into the greater Boston area.

    Well, that's a pisser. I was going to recommend contacting Chris. He does IS Help for Fletcher Allen, and might be able to recommend where to look, or who's hiring up this way.

    To be honest, if it wasn't for the gun laws and the hot air coming out of Boston, I wouldn't even be grumping. I've already done the "rip up roots and move" thing once in my life, and I've spent 17 years here... got a lot of friends here, got my Lodge here... so I really don't want to do that again if I don't have to.

    Unlike a friend of mine... Rich moves every few years. As his last name is Auklandus, we refer to it as the Migration of the Great Auk(landus). Since I've known him, he's gone from Brooklyn to Staten Island to Georgia (He moved to Marietta to escape northern winters in time to get hit with a FOOT of snow!) to NYC again to SF and now to LA... we think he'll head back east in a few years again.
