Cool Runnings

Sunny, 34-41°F. Email and phone calls again this morning. This time though, the phone call was important. I'd gone to on-site interviews the last two Thursdays and this Thursday, I got a job offer. The call was to discuss the terms, benefits, etc. So I start mid-January. The commute isn't too long. The office is only 7 miles from home and I know a few different ways to get there. The location is a bit unusual but close to Trolley Square. I guess this means no more daily geocaching excursions, although given my track record with that, I'd probably do it after work anyway. :)

Since I had no reason to stick around at home the rest of the day, I went out for a bunch of local geocaches, 7 of them that were listed in the last few days. It's nice to not have to travel far for caches sometimes. I was done in about 2 hours so I had an early dinner at Old Country Buffet in Newark. Old Country Buffet remains the one restaurant in northern Delaware with not a single wi-fi network in sight, so I was glad I had the Cr-48 with built-in Verizon 3G broadband. Still helping Google beta-test this notebook computer. ;)
