    NEW job offer

    I know I post these sorta threads all the time. I feel loads better today, but I still had to stay in the bed.

    Anyway I got a call and an offer to work at a beach resort in Guam for the next six months. It was great during the call I had to keep the HR girl focused because she kept wanting to tell me about her litespeed and the rides they have every couple of days. She recommended several times i bring my bike.

    So Basically I will be a life guard on the beach and in the waterpark belonging to the resort. Oh and I will get a few days in Tokyo when i fly out.

    Congrats, assuming it's a job you'll like.

    How much riding can one do in Guam? It's fairly small, isn't it?

    Hafa adai! Guam was good ("by order of the base commander" as the joke went).

    Loops would be a necessity for a century there, that's for sure. But there aren't too many American places in the world to watch the sun rise, and set, over the ocean on the same day.

    Congratulations, I now officially hate you

    Especially, as I am soon to lose my current job which I like. The boss is tired of computers and wants to do something else.

    Dang bro, I'm sorry to hear that.

    Keep us updated, and let us know what's going on. I'm curious about why you're having seizures.
