My Life

Scary Calls

So… I was sitting in my office minding my own business today.. When all of a sudden I get this phone call from an unknown 515 number. So I quick like googled it and found that it was coming from my bank. So I answered it.

Long story short, apparently Visa notified them of suspicious activity on my credit card and they are cancelling it and sending me a new one effective today. Umm, HELLO? How am I supposed to get money then? I won’t have my new card for a week they said. How annoying. Thankfully I have other bank accounts I can draw from, but this is my spending account.

And WTF? I still have my card, and I haven’t seen anything wierd on my statements lately and I check them daily. They wouldn’t really give any specifics either. Very strange. I wonder how many other people Principal called?

Anyways, then on my way home from work I got a call from this company in Lawrence, KS with an Systems Integration Specialist position, it sounded pretty cool. You travel the US for 3 weeks a month and then get a week off. She decided to just do the first interview right there, I think I mighta blew it cause I so wasn’t prepared. But whatever. We’ll see what happens.

I’m thinking of going to a subscriber’s only format for my blog.. Sadly all the plugins I’ve found of that require Database changes, and I like to keep a virgin DB, after the hell I went through upgrading from b2 to wp with my fucked up DB. So I might have to write my own plugin for that.

Have I been a bit too geeky here lately?

Geeky, nah. Traveling on that job might get kind of old and if you find someone to spend time with. You will not have anytime to spend time with them.

I think the traveling would be pretty cool for a while… It’s not like I’d do it forever.

But you’re right, if I _DID_ find someone good it would be hard to spend time with them. It’ll take lots of thinking if I get an offer. But I’ve still gotta get through the second interview.

Hasn’t been too geeky at all. Mayhaps a tad to nerdy for my taste but it be your place, do what you wish.
