My meeting yesterday went far better than I expected. His English had improved, and we met using NetMeeting and he was able to show slides in English of what he was talking about (I still think its cool that someone in Germany can show me slides). Turns out I got a glowing review and a small raise. The downside is that I still have to keep looking for other opportunities inside (and, quite frankly, OUTSIDE) the company.
Meanwhile I’m still campaigning for that other job with the Up And Down corporation. Everyone there wants me except for the guy who is doing the hiring. Hopefully the letter I wrote him will sway him away from the dark side. I used every ounce of Jedi mind trick I could muster, and it was further augmented by skilled editing by my lady love.
This weekend I’ll be doing a lot of work on my new media empire, and when everything is propped up and I’ve got the construction dust swept away, I’ll give my wonderful Xangaroo friends a sneak peak.
Thank you again, my lovely Lady Savina, for all your help and inspiration. OLI ARAIG.
