Chad Update:
I've decided not to take the job in Maryland. Dad pointed out that the job description they sent me didn't match my impresssion of what the job was, and when I asked them about it they were very vague. Also, I noticed that they always wanted to talk to me after regular business hours. All my phone interviews were at like 8PM their time. I'm not looking to work for a company that wants to own me. I've been there, done that.

In other news, I finally acquired my Wii a couple of days ago. It's a blast. I haven't spent too much time on it though - each of my roommates have more time on it than I do. Kirk stayed up 'till 1 or 2 AM playing it the first night, last night my other roommate was playing it still at 12:30 when I woke up. When I got home yesterday they were both playing it (I have two controllers for it, and a couple of multi-player games. I need to get a third controller so we can all play!). It's definitely geared for multi-player games, but most of it's time so far has been spent with the single player Zelda game (I haven't even been able to play it yet -- only my roommates have played it).

I've decided not to tell my current employer about me turning it down, and use it as leverage to get my pay bumped up a bit to what it's supposed to be (I'm on a step program where my pay is increased over the first year slowly until it reaches where I'm supposed to be).

I must say that I would have been very bummed to have you move here just when we were leaving. Search for jobs wherever we end up next!

We'll have to test out your Wii when we come up there in 2 weeks to make sure it works right. I've never seen one yet but I've heard they are a blast

Kim said...

Yea...I wanna see it in action too.

I am glad your sticking around Chad. We woulda missed ya!
