I'm still alive  
Thanks for the good wishes and kind thoughts everyone. The last month has been a bit stressful, to say the least. I would not suggest trying out the whole having to find housing, getting laid off, taking a business to it's first show, and moving all your worldly possessions yourself in a few short weeks for amusement.

Not only did I get the cool job, I was selected over an internal candidate as well.

The final tally is 2 sprained ankles, 1 sprained wrist, a 23% raise, a 5 mile bike commute, 4 weeks of vacation per year, a big new place with a deck, a lovely basement for my fibery fun, numerous new black, blue, purple, and green freckles, and a now damaged floor loom in my kitchen (the table is still in the car as I didn't have the energy to muscle it inside). Despite what the menfolk declared, the loom did not make it down the stairs to the basement. Their grasp on size was a little off...

My start date is the 17th, so I have the luxury of a bit of time to play around in my new home. Which is good because right now it looks like a bomb went off in here. If I could only find my underwear...

Why did I immediately think "The Paisley Redhead"?

Yay! Well not to the lumps and bumps and dents parts of course. But it sounds like you've come out ahead in the end, so again I say Yay! \o/

Congratulations on the job! I knew you would get it. :)

I would guess that your idea of fun and mine tend to agree... and what you posted about the turmoil you've recently had to endure proves it - it isn't fun!

Have fun and good luck with everything. :) *hugs from Athens, OH*
