1 Peter 5: 7-11

...casting all your cares upon Him, for He cares for you. Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world. But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you. To Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen!


An Apple a Day

So, I started at CallTech on Monday and...it's not so bad.

The hours for training are 4:30 to midnight which isn't super pleasant, but I'll survive it. Probably. I'm working on the Apple iPod project, which basically means I'll do phone support for the iPod. The past three days have really proven that Apple makes the best computer and computer-related products on the planet. I'm not a huge geek, but we've been training on Mac OS X (10.4, I think). It makes Windows look like (i don't know...insert your own analogy for something not as good as something else).

On to more important things...

My team was fourth at this year's Almost Amazing Race. This seems like good finish, but we were in second for much of the race and in first for parts. In the end, it's all Mrs. Mulvaney's fault that we lost. We were behind her at CVS trying to buy nail polish and she refused to speed up her activities even though we were obviously in a very important and monumental race.

Thanks alot, Mrs. Mulvaney! Now I may never know what winning feels like... :-(

Also, running the AAR before the potluck made me less hungry at potluck time. I think that deserves a :-(, as well.

Ramble, ramble, ramble...


Much Ado About Blogging

I went to see "Much Ado About Love" on Sunday in Schiller Park. It's a mish mash of Shakespeare's writings on love. It was pretty good; well acted and witty but with a couple of dull moments.

That's not really the point, though. The point is that I saw Tony there. (Hi, Tony). Tony's a former co-worker and, when I saw him, he mentioned my blog. Apparently, Jenny from Franklin told him about it. So, even if no one is reading this, word is out. That means that someone could pop in to check up at any time. And what kind of blogger would I be if I didn't update once in a while? According to Angie, no blogger at all.

I have a couple of interesting updates I guess:

1: I sold the MINI. I am now driving a Ford Ranger. I always wanted a pick-up, and now I have one. It's pretty nice, but it's not as smooth as the MINI. Also not as fuel efficient :-(

2: I got a job. I'll be working at CallTech starting July 18. I needed something short-term, and I think it'll be alright for a few months. Speaking of a few months...

3: Official word is now October or November. September's no longer in the running. There are benefits and drawbacks, of course. It's just hard to imagine that, in the whole United States, there are only 5 people left willing to go to IQ.
