|This log represents the Life and Times of the Las Vegas Dude.|
06/15/2008 17:58:56jim Becky has been keeping up.
Life has been moving fast. We drove 1,200 miles in two days to get here. We've changed hotels often and our lifestyles have changed dramatically. It all has taken its toll on me.
I've been working 10 to 12 hours a day, and so far, I'm deeper in debt beyond my wildest dreams. Such is life in the contracting world I guess. I love every minute of it. I'm getting everything I've asked for.
Everyone at GE will be gone by the end of this July.
I would have been gone too. I had the feeling the contract with GE was a little hyped. It was never intended to be a one year contract. I did the right thing by changing jobs last month.
The highlights of Seattle were...
Renee, Jonathon, Don, and our stay up at Mt Rainier.
Don calls me every Friday and he probably will for a very long time.
It seems we left a very depressing place to be in one of the worlds most exciting cities.
Everything here is positive.
The people are friendly. Driving is nice. The weather is beautiful.
And the beaches are the best in the world !!!
06/15/2008 17:44:50jim Moving is such sweet sorrow.
We spent three weeks at Embassy Suites.
It was only 8 minutes from work.
Everything there was GREAT!!!
Then we had to move.
The rates for the golf tournaments were too high at $280 a night.
Embassy Suites is probably my favorite hotel, but
I could never afford staying there on my own finances.
We moved to Comfort Inn.
It was only 21 minutes from work and 1/2 mile from the beach.
Everything was not fine.
We were on the 2nd floor at the end of the building.
The only way up was the stairs in the middle of the building.
Our Microwave didn't work, and I had to go down and hump one up.
The paint fumes from the bottom floor triggered my asthma.
I feel lucky to be alive at this point. The rooms were very nice though.
I'd say, any other time would have been a great time to stay here.
Its 8 minutes from work, and only 1 block from the beach.
Now that all of the golfers have left with their bags (their golf bags),
rooms are opening up everywhere.
I'm not sure how long we'll get to stay at Travel Lodge though.
July 4th is on the next weekend.
I would like to extend my reservation, but..
Right now, my contract is in the air. Its supposed to end July 1st.
Hopefully we'll know where we'll be living by the end of June.
Life is good. I'd say
I've hit my peek. I've made friends at work, I love the job, and I've earned a blistery red sun burn that looks really nice on me. Its 8 minutes from work, and only 1 block from the beach. Now that all of the golfers have left with their bags (their golf bags), rooms are opening up. I'm not sure how long we'll get to stay there, since July 4th is on the next weekend.
I would like to extend my reservation, but I'm not sure yet if they are going to renew my contract.
06/15/2008 17:41:57jim Youch! Hotel Internet can be awful.
The Days Inn internet is driving me bonkers. I may have to log on 5 times a day on it, and it prompts me for an ID only when I send something very important. Then, it takes me to an xml screen that looks like crap, and I lose everything I sent.

05/30/2008 22:31:45jim Sorry about this site being quiet
I've been putting in some long hours and things have been pretty hectic since we've moved.
I'll get back into the phlog groove once I've gotten Unix down pat, and things wind back down to their normal level of insanity.
It feels so strange...to have lived in high rises for almost an entire year.
And now, we're living in a nice hotel for who knows how long.
Love y'all n bgood.
