you know you live in doha when

You go for a swim in the pool at 7pm and after 15 minutes say, 'oooh, it's a bit chilly now, think I'll go back home'. Get home and look at the thermometer and it reads...102 F. Yah. Today was fuck all hot as ass, and dusty to boot. Bad day to have to move.

Forecast for tomorrow? 113 F, heat index of 152 F with warnings of 'extremely hot' weather. I think the outdoor laborers might actually get the afternoon off!

the time has come

Well, she's on the market. I just hope it brings the buyer as much unexpected joy as she did for me! We met because of this car and I hate to sell it, but we won't need a car in central London! Bye-bye my little Kia.

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!!!
