Last Day at Science Center

Had the last day at the Science Center today. Guess that's about it for now.

It Ain't Gout!

Went to see the doctor again yesterday and my blood/urine tests came out clean. It isn't gout. What it is, no one knows. He thinks it might be a sprain or "pseudo-gout" an ailment very similar to gout, but a buildup of a different chemical. Either way, I'm still on meds and still sore.

Yesterday I tested, interviewed, was offered and accepted a job with SGI. I am now an "SGIer". The company sounds fantastic, and everyone I came into contact with was just the bees knees. I'm really looking forward to shedding the Science Center and starting something that finally resembles are real career.

Thanks to my injury, moving has been painfully slow. Some of my family have agreed to come give us a hand this weekend, which is much appreciated. Hopefully I can talk dad into giving me a hand with leveling the house a bit too. Good times are a brewin'!

Other than that, marriage has treated me well, but probably not Rhonda so well (she spent her first days as a wife moving and nursing an injured husband), but I think things are going exceedingly well and I'm looking forward to the rest of the adventure.

Hoppily Married

The wedding was perfect this weekend. A beautiful, sincere and heartfelt ceremony and a fun and enjoyable social/reception/party made it all I could ask for in a wedding. You can tell you're making the right choice marrying someone when the crowd starts banging and you have no trouble giving your special lady a big smooch. Frankly i could have spent the day making out with Rhonda.

I woke up Sunday morning with a very sore ankle and found out Monday morn that I was the proud recipient of gout. Bastard. So crutches, pain killers and excrutiating pain attacks have been my menu. Bastard. Oh well... what can you do?

Well, Tommorrow's the big day...

... and I'm just taking the last breath of air before taking the dive.

Today was certainly long. We started by taking Tai to school, one of the few normal moments we've had today. Went for breakfast with Rhonda and Debbie. Then went out with Bootsy and dr0pped off some recycling (that trip is the subject of a post sometime after the wedding I can assure you).

About noon I was called and informed that we could go get the keys to our house at 1...and we did. Checked it out... acted like a little kid at Christmas for a couple hours and showed off to the family. Then projector and PA rental, setups, rehearsals, suppers, setups and now home at 10, to work on the playlists for the dance and watch the Hour.

Soon I will go to bed and awake single for the last time...

21 Things You Didn't Know You Could Recycle

Well I knew about most of these, but there were a few suprises. Gonna check a few out... and many of these are availiable in Canada (the Lions club does quite a number with glasses).

Nervous Ball of Nerves

I gotta say, I'm becoming an emotional wreck this week.

The wedding 8 days away is naturally a cause for some jitters. Less the commitment part, I've been pretty confident and sure about that bit for a few months now. It's the wedding day itself. It's been one controversy after another with this thing, on both sides of our family, and I can't help but think it might come to a head next week. It's a shame, because Rhonda and I are having this whole thing for the benefit of our friends and family, we'd be married and moved on by now. And plus, my family loves to poke fun and I'm just too strung out to deal with it all right now... I know they'll toilet paper my new house or something and I'll spend half the day cleaning up their prank when I could be moving or painting the house... but I suppose when you're one of the most accomplished pranksters in the county, you gotta expect some payback sometime.

My job search is not going anywhere, much to my chagrin. I've applied to dozens of jobs and haven't seen so much as an interview. I have a few resumes to hand deliver this weekend, hopefully something comes to fruition, because I've only got about 2-1/2 weeks of living saved up.

Then there's the move. While it will be a relief once it's done, there's still a myriad of things to do from address changes to utility moves to the physical act of moving. Note to others, don't get married, buy a house and change jobs at the same time... it's a wonder I haven't had a breakdown yet.

A big shout out..

... to my homeboys who put on the best bachelor party a guy could ask for on Friday. From the police visit to karaoke, it could not have been a more entertaining night.

Love ya guys!

Well tonight is the night.

What do my brother and friends have planned for me? I don't know.

Stay tuned to the internet for pictures of me passed out with marker on my face or someones ass in my face or something.

Shoulda eloped.
