Odd to see one's company on the front page; I expect I'll start to get a tidal wave of recruiters calling any minute.

We're all on tenterhooks here, but there weren't any bear traps in my cube this morning, which is a good sign. This is remarkably different than my experience of the Wii edition of Resident Evil 4, by the way - in which it is revealed that the ultimate evil opponents aren't actually zombies, they're just particularly ill-tempered Spaniards. Actually, they may not be particularly ill-tempered at all, maybe in the Resident Evil-verse, these Spaniards are actually rather cordial. At any case, they make a habit of attacking me with whatever weapon they have handy, and leaving bear-traps all over the place. I've been to Dallas and they're a shade more civil there, so chances are the people at Blockbuster would be a little more welcoming. Perhaps just small game traps, and half-heartedly flung office supplies.

The mood around here is one of tense expectation; not unlike how one feels while exploring a Spanish village in RE4 - around any corner there could be a Spaniard/layoffs. But perhaps all will work out for the best. One thing is for sure, I don't want to move to Dallas if that's what the offer is. I'd rather live in Cambodia (or a Spanish village) than Dallas.

Feets, don't fail me now

The foot doctor cleared me to start running agian. He said they're as good as they're going to get, at this point we're just maintaining. If I want, I can run a half-mile to a mile or so. That's sort of sad, considering the epic training runs I used to go on whilst preparing for triathlons - but I can build back up to that again. I'm glad, I've been absolutely itching to get more exercise, and running is something that's so easy to do and leaves me feeling charged up. Especially with the beach right out the door. Soon, I will be mighty again! (And much thinner)
