Hey! Some cool stuff happened in the last week or so, and if you keep on reading I’ll tell you all about it.
The first thing was that I got offered a sweet new job. It’s the same pay grade, but it’s a graduate job so it should be more interesting than my current job, and there will also be more opportunity to climb the ladder later on. Plus, after applying for about a million billion jobs this year and only getting offered a ho-hum one, it’s a good to know that someone thinks I have the capacity to handle a more challenging assignment. It doesn’t start right away though; it’s a 2011 thing. Which is OK because my current job is getting easier to handle, and a few more months in the job will help me build up some skills to fall back on if the new job turns out to be crap.
In far less serious news, Eleesha and I have been learning the dance to Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ in preparation for Thrill the World 2010. We are not very good at it, but it’s fun. After a few more sessions we should have the basic dance down and be onto creating some zombie costumes. Cool!
What’s pretty crap though is that my new recumbent bike is broken. They must have forgotten to put the bits on the ends of the derailleur cables, because the rear cable ended up tangled in the cogs and nearly jammed the wheel while I was riding. Stupid thing. Now I have to get them to spring for a repair without mailing the bike back to Canberra.
And finally, I am planning some travel for the end of the year before I start mah new job. Probably Bangkok for a few days, and then maybe another trip to Thailand / Vietnam / Laos / Indonesia. So does anyone have any ideas for cool things to do and see, especially in Bangkok? Let me know, hey.
So that’s the cool stuff, and a little bit of crap stuff. Now I have much ironing to do. *sob*
