Val is officially employed!
(and, may I add, just barely making her goal date of November 1)
I start work next Wednesday as the e-Commerce Web Editor for Lyric Opera of Chicago. I will be working with and monitoring their website and also sending out email campaigns. It is a great job in the industry I want in the perfect location. Plus the pay will be a substantial raise over what I was making at RE/MAX!
Time to start looking for apartments!
So, after I found out I got a job I called up MattyK and headed over to his place with a bottle of Gewurztraminer and some American cheese slices so we could celebrate in our own classy way. Mmmmmm.
We also watched an episode of Top Gear where they had a race to see who would finish first: a group of men changing like everything out on a car or a group of women preparing to go out for the night. The men finished in like 30-something minutes and they decided to pack up and leave when the women were still not finished 🙂
Then we went to Target because it was open still and Matt wanted a coat rack and Target is my Mecca so I was excited. He did not find his coat rack, but he did (after rejecting every polo and sweater and pair of underwear that I picked out for him) buy a coat. Well, it was a leather jacket. I yelled at him because he has no money, but really, who am I to talk? Plus it is a pretty hot jacket.
