So I've turned down my first promotion offer. they want me to drive almost 30 miles to get to the other Best Buy store in San Carlos. No can do. Not with the piddly amount that they're paying me.

And I've started doing web-design/maintenance. I redid some of http://www.clearcreekit.com/ yesterday and might be working on the owner's other websites soonish. It's funny how these things just fall into place.

And now I'm looking for a computer. Preferrably a slimline laptop like a sony pcg-r505ts or something else about that size. I'm going to need one and I think that I've been stepping on toes enough here by using paisleychick's little iBook. I need something a bit more powerful and less Macintoshy as well to really serve my needs. I need to find another job, a computer, and a place to live. So if you know anyone that might be selling a laptop, p3 800 or better, 10gb or more, let me know. I've seen bigger things go for 5-600 on e-bay. For that matter, if you know anyone in the San Francisco area that's got a job opening of some sort, I'd love to hear about it.

Besides that, there's a new girl working at the coffeehouse where I've been hanging out. Her name is Brooke, she about 27, and she's trying to get back to teaching. Her last teaching job was at the first grade level, and she wants to try something a little higher than that next. Nice girl, vegan, and she's from Boston. Peter and Lisa (the owner's of said coffeehouse) are busy with lots of stuff right now. Lisa is pregnant, and is doing most of the managerial work here at the coffeehouse. Peter is working on starting up a new recruiting dot-com for high tech/mid tech companies looking for IT personnel and technicians. He requested a copy of my resumé. yay!

Apparently hacked's ex-girlfriend Nancy is moving back to Albuquerque in a few weeks so you all there have something to look forward to. Or you could say that I've given you fair warning. :P

no toe squashing here
You're not stepping on my toes. I actually feel bad when I'm using it weirdly. The fact that we have different accounts helps a lot. I remembered last night that we had the computer in our bedroom, but we were using it as a stereo because the portable cd player *SUCKS* and we wanted some music, and I wasn't getting out of bed for nothing. Personally I think YOU would like it better too if you got your own computer, just so you can have your own. Computers are really funky things, possession-wise. I've never really thought about it much before, but kragen's been teaching me a lot about the politics of intellectual property. But it makes sense, it really is an extension of yourself, even though it's a fucking machine. But because we put so many of our thoughts into them, it's personal.
Good luck with everything you've got going on.

Re: no toe squashing here
I apprecaite your support, but I feel like I'm squashing toes. Not just with the computer, but by robbing you two of your privacy at times, and in general, being around when you two could be enjoying the newlywed life in a cozy little apartment by yourselves.

Ben is going to talk to Laurel about their new apartment and how much space they're going to have, especially the sunroom/3rd bedroom. If that doesn't look like it's going to work, then I'll start looking at jobs in the food industry so I can afford a place on my own.

Re: no toe squashing here
I'll admit, it is a little squished at times, but:

we've got lots of space;
we don't need to have sex *every night* (don't even think we could anymore anyways, we're too tired these days);
you're family;
I like you;
I know your brother loves you;
you're fun to have around; and
I have faith that you'll land on your feet soon enough.
