and I'm so unprepared, so here's your valentine...

There have been some big changes for me lately. First of all, I re-did some things on my website, it's totally CSS-riffic now! This is partly due to some cross-compatability issues that were bugging me, plus some observations from electroly about the way my headings looked, all that. All the font sizes are defined in pixels, I don't know if that's bad or not. hrm. Also, I divided up the side navigation links to make for organized grouping but more scrolling. Comments are welcome.

I'm wondering: what the hell is the point of linking to a remote CSS document? My site uses server-side includes, so the style tags are all in the header template stuff, is there any reason to do it another way?

But I guess that's not the biggest thing going on right now :)

Well, if you weren't logged in to read yesterday's entry, I'll go ahead and tell you that I've been offered a job and I think I'm going to take it. Didn't that happen fast? I'll be an aviation systems engineer. Basically, when someone wants to buy an airplane they go to a lot of trade shows and things and see new exciting widgets they want their plane to have, so it's our job to integrate it into the existing cockpit systems and get it approved by the FAA. Apparently it's a big more complicated than just plugging things in.

Yesterday I went into my room where my parakeets were freaking out as usual, chirping up a storm and talking about the news of the hour. They always do that. Even when I'm tired and don't want to hear them, I'll yell "SHUT UP!" and it does nothing. Or ask them nicely to shut up. Or throw something at their aquarium with a "shut up" feeling to it. Anyway, I sat down on the bed next to their aquarium, looked at them and said, "Well, you guys might be going to Wichita. How does that sound?"

And they both just stared at me in complete silence.

Aggy sort of cocked his head to one side and made a tiny murmering noise, then silence again. I reached in and he hopped on my hand and I brought him out of the aquarium and looked at him, saying, "You won't even know the difference, bird. What are you so worried about?" He bent over to chew on my fingernail.


Dave and I talked for a long time on the phone. Then Dad came home and we talked about going to look for apartments, he said he'd come down with me the first couple days to help out, which sounds like a pretty good idea. I went upstairs and signed some papers, today I'm going to call the HR guy to ask about starting date.

Things are happening, huh?
