There are two major topics I need to cover: the new job and the recent vacation. Regarding the vacation, I had every intention of writing up a long, detailed trip report for my archival purposes, but, well, the new job made that impractical.

So, the job in a nutshell: I started this past Thursday. I’m doing business analysis with a music technology company. More than that I should probably be slow to divulge — after all, I had to sign fifty gazillion non-disclosure agreements. (Besides, who doesn’t like to tease?) The important thing is that the problems I’ve learned about thus far are relatively comparable to some of the problems I helped solve at Netflix, and it’s fun to be dealing with issues like that again. And about music!

So yay for the new job! It’s only the end of day three, but so far, it’s looking good.

As for the trip: it was just what we needed. Getting to see and his wonderful woman after so long an absence was fantastic. They were gracious hosts, even though we kept them up ridiculously late night after night with excited-to-see-you-again conversation. We stayed with them in their spiffy new house for three days and then headed down to Santa Cruz for another two days. At that point, we got to hang out with another pair of friends we’d been missing very much, and it was wonderful to see them, too.

There was much questioning of when we’d be moving back, and it’s official: as soon as we’ve written enough number one songs to pay for a house on West Cliff Drive, we are so there.

    When you’re wealthy enough to buy a house on West Cliff drive I’m moving into the guest cottage. 🙂
