So I finally got a job. I'll be doing inbound sales calls for Bose. Granted it's temp to perm, but I have a good feeling about being kept when the temp position ends. It's technically employment through Randstad a staffing agency but I'll take what i can get.
To catch you up on what's been going on since the last blog post. Well I got married, which is really what has been keeping me from blogging. Between getting ready for the wedding and all the craziness that has been happening since then. A few days after the wedding, I was having the most incredible pain I've even experienced! Nothing I could do to get comfortable or to relieve the agony I was in. Now to put this into some context I worked for a week on a broken leg when I was with UPS and I dealt with a bruised spine a few years ago. I actually called the wife (still sounds weird to say) and had her bring me to the ER. Which is crazy, because I NEVER go to the hospital (took me a week after I broke my leg to go) and I have NO INSURANCE. Nice. Turned out to be kidney stones. Terribly uncomfortable, still dealing with the pain on occasion.
Let's see what else...went to a wedding a week after that and the guy who fired me was there. He actually came up to me and had the fucking audacity to offer me his hand and ask me how I was doing. I replied with a curt "Unemployed" and turned away from him. Ashleigh told him to go to hell, and to go sit down. It was great! People were talking about it at various Sprint stores for several days after. Fantastic!
What else...trying to finish my stupid rewrite so I can start editing the goddam thing. We did zombie ziplining courtesy of our friends Brian and Melanie. If you've never done it, it goes like this: a zipline of 1000 feet, takes under 30 seconds. Then you pile into a beat up van and get driven to another part of the park where you board a short school bus. You then get driven through the infection zone and there are military folks all around firing at the zombies that are out in the woods. These are real military folks with real weapons firing blanks. It was fantastic. At one point you have to run along the loose earth and gravel in the absolute pitch blackness. At another you need to be perfectly silent as you walk by a zombie devouring an unfortunate victim. The best part is that all the proceeds go to veterans, and all the military folks involved are veterans.
Oh, and went to Rock and Shock, sold a few books and met Dee Snider which was nice. He was cool. Told him I just wanted to get a handshake and he replied "Instead of a kiss? Sure!" Chatted with Adam Green of Hatchet 1-3, Frozen, Chillerama and Holliston. Then had a fantastic time for Ashleigh's birthday. I made her a cake, but I was worried because as soon as I put the cake into the oven......power went out. Fucking awesome. I was so upset! But it came back on and I was able to rescue it. I mangled the shit out of it when I tried frosting it, but Ashleigh said it was the "best cake ever". Then I gathered some friends and we had a fantastic surprise party for her. She was totally blindsided, and it was awesome! We all had a blast!
