Exciting News!!

Today is my cat Elwyns 8th birthday!! Yay!!

Now, I know what you are thinking - why the hell is he talking about his cat, because I do not give a fuck. Well, let me respond to this with my cat is the best cat ever. As in throughout all of time.

Becca and I adapted him through a coworker of a friend who needed to find a home for him quickly. He was her daughters cat who was supposed to take him with her when she moved, but ended up moving into a place that wouldn't allow cats, and then the mothers living situation changed, and Elwyn unfortunately needed to go. He has been living with us since about the beginning of November, and was a bit skiddish, but quickly settled in (like 4 days later, which is pretty quick for a cat this old to be at ease with new owners).

To best describe him, Elwyn is a 200 pound orange and white cat with green eyes. He sleeps, as cats do, but he also secretly fights crime, just like Phantom Zero. When not doing that, he loves to make the rounds sitting in everyones laps or on top of computer keyboards. He fucking rules, and you can be friends with him on facebook if you are not already.
Also, I heard back from the job I was waiting to hear back from. I am their #1 pick. I meet with them again on Thursday to discuss specifics. Thats pretty cool too.

So I'm unfamiliar with your quaint americanisms. Does this mean you've got the job?

Also - I love Elwyn. I also love that Elroy could totally pwn him.

I have no idea if I have the job. I'm pretty certain that I have it, but I won't know for sure until after my meeting on Thursday. Its been the strangest and oddest interview/hiring process that I have gone through from start to finish, but in a good way. If anything, its a huge weight off my shoulders (if only temporarily) and I'm happy with that.

If you will excuse me I have to make a cake for the cat.

Congrats on the meeting with the job, you seem a bit more light-hearted.

And your cat? Cool, but my old cat Explodey was the coolest cat of all time, so your cat only gets second place.
