I've secured a part time research job, and I have an interview tomorrow for something more full-time.
I may have some recourse to keep my old health plan, by paying it directly... which would kick ass.

I got tickets to the X show at Roseland theater in portland as Xmas gifts for my brother Timothy and sister Paula, so Nux and I left the kids with my Dad and Annie... (was that safe?) and we went to see a really amazing awesome shoe. Soothesayers Tim and Jenn were there, also ran into Sean Shanahan, Bruce from the Detonators, and John from Campfire Punk.
After the show, we went to the coin operate 24 hour church of Elvis, then back to my Dad's as Tim's flight was hella early Sunday morning.
