i'm legal!

I got my official spousal visa for the UK yesterday! I'm legal to reside, work, and come and go as I please from the UK for the next 2 years :) Then I get to take a 'Life in the UK' test and apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain. Woohooo! Another major piece of the puzzle placed!

Also, very-very proud of Rory for reaching his 2 year anniversary of quitting smoking!

Your Quit Date is: 7/1/2008

Time Smoke-Free: 730 days, 14 hours, 27 minutes and 9 seconds

Cigarettes NOT smoked: 14,612 (holy smokes!)

Lifetime Saved: 3 months, 21 days, 14 hours

Money Saved: 5,110.00 QR = in US equivalency around $3,650

martha's new book

I had a dream that I was standing in Martha Stewart's kitchen trying to convince her that she should publish a book on crime scene cleaning. What's that all about?

I got the job!

So we're moving to London! We've already got the kitty sent ahead of time so she can start 'doing her time'. Poor thing, her only crime was to be born here. Now she has to spend 6 months in lock up. At least we'll have her back in time for Christmas :)

Totally stoked about the new job! I start September 1st. Awesome location and yet another chance to be part of a brand new office and create the program. I guess that's going to be my career trademark.

Hopefully folks will actually hop the pond and visit this time! Can't offer you a place to stay since it's a central London flat (ie extremely small) but there are youth hostels and cheaper hotels to be found.

Check it out!

round 3

3rd round interview with the folks in London tomorrow night! They said they were impressed with me after the phone interview, so maybe this is the formality to make sure I don't look like a spaz nut. I've never done a video interview before. First time for everything :) Stoked!!!

salman rushdie

Was the opening plenary speaker at NAFSA last night. He was amazing! It felt so good to hear someone speak about human rights and literature. Plus who knew he's such a funny guy!

5 ways to ensure mediocrity

This article perfectly describes what is happening at my workplace right now. Numbers 2 and 5 hit the nail on the head. Someone give me the A Team theme song so I can play it on my way out the door!
