and so it goes

I'm sorta proud of the Brit.

He got his job. With a big US firm, he doesn't know what they do, but I do, they are a big deal, aerospace... (strange aside, their Canadian office is in the building next door to where I work).

Talked to him today, called while he was at the pub with people from old work, on his last day. Actually, I had called earlier and got told "um...I have to go, they're standing around my desk....." ROFL.....

Nineteen years with the same company, and he got the second job he interviewed for. Yeah. I'm super happy for him, he sounds relieved, a week ago he sounded stressed out. It's a big weight off his shoulders.

The visit is still pending, he doesn't know his start date, but they are aware he's away for 2 weeks and think he needs to give notice....and so notice apparently consists of coming to Canada for a bit :)

Hopefully he says. Hopefully I say.

My company is opening an office over in UK. I looked into finding out what jobs they'll be hiring for, hit a large roadblock, they won't spend money on getting permits for foreigners yadda yadda.

Except, they don't have to in my case. That shut them up, and now they're looking into it. Figure I may as well be proactive. You never do know.

I really am happy. I loved hearing him smile on the other end of the phone. I'm good for now.

This is the god's honest truth, and I told him so.....

15 years ago he ruined me for men without British accents. Period. Paragraph. END OF!
