I got the book last year at Christmas, I really liked it. I'm planning on going to see the movie this weekend.

wifey and i had a fight last night due to my actions. all my fault. i admitted and took blame.. kept talking and before bed i got some very upsetting news. now today i can't focus on anything but this news.. one of those things you want to know, are glad you know. but at the same time don't know what to think about it or if in fact you wish you still didnt know... GRRRRRRRR!!!

Speaking of regrets, yesterday I told my boss that I would be submitting an application for a job with Tesla Motors. I have been considering it for a couple of weeks and felt it was only fair for him to know. I am his assistant manager in our small shop (there are three of us) and I have been working there for over three months now (though I have known him for over 20 years). Not sure if I did the right thing though. Today he was a bit upset. Seems he found out that I have had another job offer as well and for significantly more pay- though one I did not initiate nor was I looking for it. The offer came out of the blue and while I did go over and talk to them I did not accept the offer (at least not yet.)

On the plus side though I did clarify exactly what my position is there, and how I could represent myself in my application and resume. I have also called two of my former supervisors and talked to them with the application in mind, and got some extremely favorable responses. They both said they felt that I was one of the best employees they had worked with, and both of them (one was my shop foreman, the other was my direct manager) said that they felt I was more of an equal than a subordinate, even though "on paper" I was a subordinate.

Also, my former foreman works at a completely different job now in a research lab, and he said that in the next six months he was expecting that there would likely be a position for me there (if the corporate mucky-mucks agree that they need more technicians instead of an engineer- which they are extremely top-heavy on.) So there was another tentative job offer there too!
