Well, the first week of me working is great and over. I am officially a card carrying member of corporate america. The contract I’m working at put me in the offices of Nokia here in Dallas. Nokia is the most laid back environment, and what makes it even more laid back is the fact that our technology department falls under the umbrella of the marketing group…. so little or no effort at all produces ooh’s and aahh’s from the higher ups. It’s quite rewarding.
So far all week long, my first week has consisted of probably a grand total of 4 or 5 hours of real work and about 25 hours of meetings.
My job is to be a web developer/webmaster for www.NokiaUSA.com. It’s a really tough job, lemme tell you. If you believe that I have some swampland in Florida you might be interested in. 😉 Ahh so little to do, and so much time to do it in.
I don’t want to lose all my friends, so I won’t mention my salary. But it’s enough to be considered a crime.
This week we are babysitting a cat for Crackbaby’s girlfriend. And we are babysitting our friend dirty.a.sid and his kid (he’s looking for a new apartment this week). And I’m finally working and keeping my mind sharp again. Which is a good deal.
At my job I have not a cube, not an office, but count ’em, one TWO offices! yes! Because I’m going thru a consulting firm, I have an office at the firm I share with a couple guys, and I have an office at Nokia that is all my own! yes! Don’t ask me why, the rest of the team is in cubes, but me, an office. I’m pretty happy about the whole deal.
And yes, the facial hair is staying off. I guess I’m used to my new look. I’ll post a pic for all of you to look at. I’m sure you are all real interested. Look for that some day when I’m bored at work with the quickcam.
At any rate, it’s Phitt’s birthday tonight… so I’ve gotta go celebrate. Everyone sing happy birthday for him. It’ll make him feel all speshul.
