somethings do not help with the new job interview....

Did you ever notice that if you are running late, because you have a job offer in hand from the firm you wanted to go and play with, that one's focus on the otherwise reasonable corporate rhetoric is, well, distracted.

So I paused the really neat manager in the midst of his pitch, and asked him,
What Really was it in my rersume that you liked?

Well there is the OO Perl, and, well, the fact that you were navy.

Turns out the chap had served in the turkish navy.

I told him that I had been in Ankara in the old days....

He had done his Navy Post Grad Work at Monteray....

What a small world after all....

And then had to be honest, that I had been offered another position, and I was not sure I wanted to go to work for a major corporation at this point....

What a Long Strange Trip It Has Been.

So Long, and thanks for all the fish...
