Farewell Boston! -- Maybe?

After searching for a roommate/housemate for three months (which has been a completely unsuccessful waste of time, effort and money), I'm admitting defeat. Since I enjoy travelling and am home only 20-25% of the time, it does not make sense to have a deluxe condo that I'm paying for, but not being used.

On my last disaster recovery test, I was invited to apply for a job in Washington, D.C. Since BCRS is in my career path, and variables for a happy move included:

- a warmer (more temperate) area
- an area with competing airports (there are three in the DC area)
- a metro area with a subway and public transit
- a city that had an active, involved gay community including bear and leather club scene

Of course, I read this opportunity as something I shouldn't pass up! I interview on tomorrow.

Now a public service announcement for new and expecting parents:

Good Luck! I've never been to DC but I've heard it's pretty nice there with a good gay scene happening:)

Thanks for the info.

Washington is a nice place, but I've never lived there -- so this will be new for me...

Ooo..! If you don't want to live IN the city, you can live outside it and travel in. It's really expensive there, so make sure you get a good salary.

Not sure if you know, but D.C.... the actual center of the city is upper class, mostly white, etc. Everywhere around the city? Not so nice. I lived in Columbia, MD which is about 30+ mins north. It was nice.

And you would like Dupont Circle ;)

Good luck with your interview! (would you still be IBM?)

Oh, I am familiar with VISITING D.C., but I've never lived there...

The position is with IBM BCRS. As you know, BCRS is a passion of mine!

Hysterical baby lessons!

Best of luck/break a leg with the interview and way cool to turn not finding a roomie into a possibly positive situation.

OK, I give up. Is that a real baby info poster or a gag?
Aug. 14th, 2008 02:06 pm (UTC)

Com'mon, of course it's a gag!

Damn!! I was SO hoping it was for real!!
