So what's happening, Cosmo?

Now that's a very good question, and one well worthy of an answer. :)

I got my official offer letter yesterday, and it's as good (or better) than the verbal offer I was working with. So all is good there.

The Most Amazing and Wonderful In-Laws have helped us with loans to pay off our vehicles and some of our revolving debt, so we can have a simpler US Dollar pile to pay each month, vastly improving our position in Vancouver.

They have listed my official start date at Sept. 7 which is two weeks earlier than I thought it would be. Hoo ray.

Unemployment no more, we sing!

That's fantastic! I'm so happy for you, and I hope you like Vancouver. I know you'll like Chapters bookstore. :-)

And the weekend trips to Snohomish for music and roleplaying. :)

When I read this, my sigh would have done the Big Bad Wolf proud.

Maybe if I could just fold Oregon in half...

Wonderful news *HUG* :)
I've never been to Vancouver, but my ex R has been there several times, and was just *raving* about this city (and that from a man who usually doesn't care where he is, when the food is good and the set visits (in this case it was MGM) go as planned ... *laugh*).
So ... that would actually be an incentive for me to go, sometime ;-)

Hey, that's fantastic! Congratulations! *big hug*

Hmm, if you're moving to Vancouver, I have some friends there with a little girl...I can't remember how hold yours is, but Kate's around 2, I think. Anyway, just thought I'd mention it, in case you want some contacts. My friend Michele moved there last year and didn't know anyone, so she'd definitely sympathize with the whole up-rooting thing.

Zoe will be three on the 29th. I'd love to hook up with her if she's open.

Great! I'll send Michele y'all's email address (I don't have yours, but Scott has an address listed in his profile) and hopefully you can get together. She's in the SCA and just left for Pennsic, so it could be a couple of weeks before you hear back. (But I want to send it off before I forget!)

Congratulations! Employment is good. Hope the job is at least a little bit fun, too.

Great news! Glad to hear you're avoiding or getting out of the Unemployment Line.

As I told pafuts, Burnaby is where Simon Fraser University is, where they've been doing cutting-edge computer graphics and GIS for years. I think their facility was where "Reboot" was produced/rendered.

And maybe, you'll get a chance to go to a Canucks game.

WoohoO! Congratulations, guys! I'm glad things are going according (or better) to plan. And I do think you'll like the weather there. A bit colder than you're used to, perhaps, but nothing too drastic. Not like it would be if you were moving to Toronto (don't tell Debbie that. I think she still has her "campaign" going on. ). Many hugs, --Jodi

You're going to live in Vancouver? Oh my goodness! (Oh well - first of all: congratulations! :-) ) But then: wow - Vancouver is such a wonderful city! I think I immmediately fell in love with this city when I've been there 1996... I also shared that love for this city with Lloyd Landa - he composed a music piece that "discribed" that city so very well which he played to me after Consonance 2000 while sharing memories... It's a city where I always wanted to live since that first moment I arrived there! 'Cause I love this having the ocean in front of you and the mountains in your back. And such a lovely towncenter (around Gastown). And I fondly remember those wonderful gardens (I think they're called the Elizabethian Gardens - something like that). When I've been Interfilk-guest at FilKONtario I had first planned to take the train across Canada to see Vancouver again. And visit Vancouver Island which is also said to be quite a sight. There's a beautiful wild and rugged beach with a hiking trail on which only a certain number of hikers are allowed each day. It's part of a National Park. But I wanted to do that for a time now. I still dream of it! :-)

Say - didn't you just move? Oh well, I think you're also one of those practised and experienced movers! *grin* One has to be. I understand more so in the USA than in Germany, but Germany is closing in on that: fewer people today are able to spend their whole life in the same place. If you want a job, you just have to move. The "golden ages for work" are over... Flexibility is what is asked for. Something we could learn from the americans! :-)
Good luck for all of you!
