Is this the case with everyone else, is this why I have so few comments while others have sooooo many? It has crossed my mind that the content is just not as stimulating, hilarious or downright brilliant as are many of those I read.....but it is not that ...surely. :) Also, is it the done thing to respond to everyone that leaves a little note? Do tell, I don't want to be rude. Be assured that I love to receive your comments, maybe I will start just leaving little notes everywhere and see if it has any impact.
Anyway I just felt the need to bring up the topic, so if you do drop by today maybe you will just leave me a little hello so I know you were here. I am sure there is some high tech way of seeing who is reading but I have no idea what that might be.
Just to bring you up to date with the comings and goings (boring though they may be (!)) at Chez Soft, GWE did in fact drive off to Kansas over the weekend. The project he was working on in Montreal has been moved on to Wichita and so has he. It was touch and go there for a while as the immigration guy was hell bent on not giving him a work visa but he was persistent and he had to give him one. Believe me the immigration officer was not happy... to put it mildly. In fact he was downright rude and threatening. His job description must require him to try and thoroughly piss people off. GWE said the whole experience was degrading and he was treated in a totally unprofessional way.
He decided to drive the 18 hours to get there so he would have a car at his disposal rather than renting a car. He was very lucky with the weather considering the storms we have experienced over the last week or so, clear and sunny all the way, with just a bit of fog in Illinois on Saturday night as he was looking for a motel. In the end he just pulled off into what he described as "Bates Motel". When the proprietors queried his accent, he mentioned Canada and they pondered if that wasn't where "that presidential candidate" had come from. He enlightened them that they meant Alaska but he said it was an eye opening experience all round. But you get what you pay for and it was only $42 for the night!!!
Anyway he is now safely in the land of Dorothy, Toto and the Wizard of Oz. For the rest of us it is back to normal. Christmas is well and truly done and dusted here, now looking forwards into 2009 to see what it holds for us all. Back to school, back to work....ho hum. Maybe it is a little boring around here.
