Life is good.

Life is looking very good today.

I just got home from my job interview, and it went really well. The position is a Unix and NT System Administrator position. The job is actually with First Data Resources (FDR), a very major credit card processing company. FDR is contracting the position out, at least initially, through a company called Solutions Point. If I get it, I'll be a consultant with Solutions Point for a while, working at FDR, but there is a right to hire clause in the position. So, if everything goes well, it would most likely turn into a permanent employment position within 6 months or so.

The interview itself went really well, too. The guy I interviewed with was really cool, and very informal, which fits my style well. We sat and BSed for 20 minutes after the interview, too.

Definitely a good start for the day, so far.

Ugh.

Well, it seems I'm heading off to work out in a few minutes.

In some ways, I'm glad to be doing it, because it's been too long since I've worked out on a regular, consistent, schedule. I really do wanna get back into it.

However, the first few weeks of getting back into a workout routine really suck, so I'm thinking I won't enjoy today much. Whoever came up with, "No pain, no gain" really needs to be shot.

One Crazy Summer...

What a great movie. It's been way too long since I last saw One Crazy Summer. There is something about those great '80s John Cusack movies (The Sure Thing, Better Off Dead, and One Crazy Summer) that is just great. I truly love those movies.

Hrm, it seems I've reached that impressive plateau of journaling where astrosonya adds you to her friends listing. Not only that, but I was lucky enough to be mentioned in an entry. Now I reel all warm and tingly inside. ;-)

On a less rudely sarcastic note [*], I thank you. I really will do my best to keep you entertained. And if I do get too boring, warn me so I can take my own life instead of being shamed by having everyone remove me from their friends list.

Hrm. You know, I really need to try harder at not being rudely sarcastic. It seems to something of a rude habit lately.

Hrrrrmmm. Actually, it's not so much lately, as for the majority of my life. Oh, well, so it goes. ;-)

Quote of the moment: "Now that's a real shame when folks be throwin' away a perfectly good white boy like that."

[*] Just to let you know, sonya, and everyone else out there. I have what I've come to consider an odd sense of humor, and I tend to make jokes about just about everything. I'm also very sarcastic. Please take everything I say with a brick of salt, and know that I'm not trying to insult, upset, or hurt anyone. Just amuse myself, and with luck, anyone else who happens to see it. ;-)
