Yay for me!
Me and Lisa on Saturday night...
Sara, me and Jen...
Okay, so I don't know why I didn't talk about this before, but basically, I've been looking for a new job, and on Friday after much interviewing (5 interviews to be exact) and a few tests, I was finally given a job offer with an Engineering Company here in Las Vegas.
Yay! Along with the job comes a nice hefty pay raise, sick leave (I didn't have that before), medical and dental (I only had medical before), 401K where the company MATCHES what you put in (oh hell yeah!) and a staff of hot single young engineer types. Actually, I don't know about that last part, but I'm hoping.
So, I start the new gig on Monday, I have to work 9 - 6 p.m. which kind of sucks, but oh well. I'm definitely going to have a lot more responsibilities, I'm a little nervous but I hope that I'm up to the challenge. I think I am. I really wanted this and it happened for a reason, so yay!!
Friday I'm going out for a girl's night out at the Red Rock Casino. This is a whole separate crew of girls that I don't usually hang out with, because they don't actually go out that often. Most of them are married and stuff, and they do drink, so that might be a challenge, but if it's not working for me, I'll just leave. I think it'll be a lot of fun though. It's always nice to meet new people and people watching at the Red Rock is sure to be fun. Pictures to come as always.
So, can we all just take a moment to laugh about the court awarding O.J.'s rolex to the Goldman's? How freaking funny is that? I just love it. If I was the Goldman's I'd be like "hey, I like that green shirt he's wearing, SHIP IT!!!!" and "hmmm, what about that superbowl ring?? That looks pretty shiny - send it on over". I actually don't know if he has any superbowl rings, but I'm sure someone can can clarify that for us. I really think karma is coming around to bit O.J. in the ass. Let's hope so!
And, how did I almost forget about this? Today I'm going back to court for hopefully the last time EVER to finalize my DUI stuff. I have to turn in the $580 fine, turn in the proof that I took the DUI course, give them the paperwork showing that I went to the Victim Impact Panel and hopefully if all goes well, they will immediately drop it down to a reckless and I will never have to re-visit this DUI thing again. Here's a funny thing. I just heard on the news that O.J. will be in court this morning. I'll be in Las Vegas court this morning. Maybe I'll run into him. I'll make sure to get a picture and sell it to TMZ!
