Dang it All
Trials and Travails of a 20-something

Well kids, it looks like Kelsey and I are off to Myrtle Beach, SC. Hopefully our cats will like it there.

Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit upon his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.

I've been looking for full-time employment for a while now. Who knew an English degree was useful in such a small number of jobs? Well, I did. But anyway...

I'm in the midst of interviews at three newspapers. I flew out to New Hampshire earlier this week and next week I'm flying to South Carolina and then Illinois. While it's a bit frustrating that all of these jobs are so far from home, it is pretty spiffy that these places are paying for me to fly around the country. If only they would pay for my lovely wife as well, it would be like a little mini-vacation. Oh well. Hopefully, out of three interviews, one will end in a job offer. Hopefully all three will.

In Myrtle Beach I get to look forward to a two day trial by fire in which I am interviewed by no less than 12 separate people and spend two hours on editing tests. One hopes that by the end I will at least have a good idea of the job. And, besides, if I land a job there, at least I'll already know everybody by name.

I get to go home and cuddle with my wife tonight. I bet you're jealous. You should be. You wish your life was this spiffy.

An intelligent woman is a woman with whom we can be as stupid as we like.

For a long time I labored under the idea that there were dozens, perhaps hundreds of women that I could end up with and live my life with and be happy with. I'm starting to change my mind. As my marriage enters its third month, I'm constantly reminded how wonderful a person my wife is. She seems to be the perfect choice for me. Beautiful, fun, smart and a great cook. I don't see how there could ever be anyone else this perfect for me. She's the one and only. And I'm hers. How awesome is that?

(Freakin' awesome, that's what it is!)
