I now have over 8,000 SF posts, to where I am deserving of special privileges. (The mods have given me secret powers which will allow me to "perform acts.")

I have just been invited to do a tender on behalf of the clients, who's export manager was a giant penis to me and cost me a good 7 figure amount in dollars.

I have followed them since I stopped dealing with them and everything has turned in to a big fat nothing, so I now hold all the cards, as the tender is for a very prestigious project, which could make or brake them on the market.

Glad to hear parentals are doing better.

So happy to be back home. What's the first thing I do? Total my car.

So it occurred to me recently that I've been spending way too much time griping in the "pissed" thread and not enough talking about good stuff here. I've taken this as a sign that I'm too negative, so I'm gonna use poast number 10k to turn over a new (positive) leaf.

I got, and accepted, a formal offer for the job I mentioned recently. It's a modest promotion and a substantial pay increase, so that's pretty sweet. Plus, I think it's a position where I'll really thrive. It requires a part of my skill set that I feel is my strongest, and I actually have some pretty unique experience that ties directly to the work. I also worked there as an intern, so I already know the basic lay of the land, and, unless there's been a huge change, I'm pretty certain it's a good culture/environment.

On top of being a great opportunity professionally, the job, I think, is also going to be better for my family. It looks like we're going to get a house (a rental for now), and we've found a lot of great stuff in an area I think we'll really like and could settle in long-term (great schools, less traffic, etc.). The new location will mitigate a lot of the complaints we've had about where we've been living, but it'll also allow my wife to keep her job and my son to stay in a preschool we really love. It's going to be a little bland, because it's basically the edge of the suburbs nearly in the countryside, but I guess that's where I am right now. Plus, the location puts us in a nice spot where we can access both the city and the country relatively easily.

This is all happening with enough time to get moved and relatively settled before the new baby comes, too, which is awesome.

Also, I'm taking a long weekend between jobs so I can go visit my best friend up in Kentucky. I don't see him much, and it's been a long, long time since I was up there, so I'm excited. Plus, we're gonna hit some bourbon distilleries while I'm up.

Yeah, things on this side of 10k poasts are lookin' pretty sweet.

You don't use guns to club baby seals.

While Spotify usually misses the mark with their recommendations, they were right on today with Gary Puckett & The Union Gap.

They're trying to figure out where and when to do a bypass - the local hospital is so-so at best, the regional hub is an hour away but only marginally better. Unfortunately he may be too sick to travel to one of the national centers.
Sorry to hear this. All the best....
