Well there is much to talk about.....

.....but little time to do it in! It's been a whirlwind week in my little world! First off the big news.... I got a job! Yes I got a real job, with a livable wage and a possibility of it being interesting work! It's a software company that makes billing and clinical software for medical clinics. I would be the guy who will help the hospital employees out on the phone if the have a problem with the program. It's an office job Monday to Friday so that's good, and it's in Surrey. But, it's a little far away and is going to be a bit of a bitch to get to on the bus. So if anyone has a car they want to give me... please give me a call or email me!!! Hey can't blame for trying can you?

I'm very scared to tell you the truth, as I haven't worked in a long time but deep down inside I know it will work out just fine. I start on Monday at 8:30 am sharp. However due to the crappy bus system I think the closest to that time I can get there is 7:30am.... c'est la vie.

Last night I was the emcee of a big Elvis concert in West Vancouver called "Ultimate Elvis - An Evening of Champions". The crowd wasn't huge (Yet it wasn't small) but it was enough to break even and make some money for the Food Bank and it was a great show! Some Great Elvis singers were there, and It was fun doing theater type stuff again even if it was just being an emcee. I also met some great people last night... a very rewarding experience all around.

So that's just a quick news flash for now. Again, I'm pretty excited yet nervous as hell all at the same time about the new job but as I said earlier I'm sure it will be just fine. As always please don't be a stranger email me or call today! Oh yeah speaking of calling, I finally entered the 21st century and got a Cell phone. Hooray for me! I feel almost like a 'with it' kind of cat now, what with having a job and a Cell phone! So now you have to write me to get my new cell phone number!

I'm so happy for you, I hope you truly enjoy your new days of stress, aggravation, morning commuting, ignorant people, idiots, and water cooler gossip (or is that just my job?)
It's going to be awesome and so are you
Love Amanda
P.S. can I borrow 50 bucks?

No update so far...I guess he doesn't want to get canned in the first few days for writing his blog at work. Smart move Greggy, wait at least a couple of weeks before you start surfing on company time.

Maybe move out of that seedy neighborhood and get a place closer to work. I hope things work out for you at your new job.

Whew...that was close huh? Almost had to sell some of your action figures (dolls?) to make rent next month.

Remember...for some extra cash you can always babysit my 1 year old
