Jebus I slept like the dead last night, nothing like being back in your own bed. After a week in Costa Rica, < thrilled about snow. Stopped at a Thai place in Denver on the way home yesterday and tried to order in Spanish.

So jimmydean needed a place to live and was looking to stay near the kiddo. There are a few ok apartments, but I was thinking I need cheap fir the summer, then get something nice. So I go on CL and there are a few rooms to rent.

So I shoot off a few emails to ones in the area and I get a response from one. I had only skimmed the ad, but I had seen something in there about heavy metal, but not too loud, blah, blah, blah. He says he's off work at 6, swing by at 6:30. He sends me the address, it's 2 houses away from where I live now. :rofl:

So I pull up, ring the doorbell, dude answers. He's in camo pants and a Slayer shirt. I walk in, see the drum kit where the dining table would be, and I enjoy the art on the wall.



I comment on the nice art, the 12" vinyl Misfits album on the bookcase, his shirt. We start to BS about music, beer, Portland, sold. I move in on Saturday.

Turns out he grew up in Medford before moving to Portland, but knows a lot of the same folks as I do. Crazy small world. He was freaked out thinking he might have to tone down his decor, I told him I have a Sepultura channel on Pandora. :fans:

This might be the most humiliating, self-incriminating, man-card revoking post I've ever had on here, but....

A Nalgene water bottle full of ice and Mike's Hard Margarita is a God-send while raking 2 acres of leaves and brush.

are you still unemployed?

For better or worse, yea. After 4 interviews with that biomed/pharma company I didn't get the job, most likely because of my lack of experience in a super controlled/medical device environment. A bit bummed since it was a good opportunity, but on the other hand a bit relieved as it wasn't a design job so much as fixing purchased equipment, which wouldn't have kept me all too excited and motivated for long. I need something that focuses on creativity and design, which there's plenty of out there. I got a call today and a couple more potential leads, so we'll see.


On the upside, I've been spending a ton of time doing things to the house and riding. So there's that.
