I'm the dude playing a dude disguised as another dude.

I got a job. Yep, a young company down in Tukwila decided I was their woman for the job. Their motto, "We hire personalities, and train skills." Well I've got loads of personality, shiiiiiiiiiiiit!

I will get experience as a staff accountant to utilize my existing skills as well as build new ones. I'm so fucking excited to be able to work with people who want me around.

Now the rub will be the commute. It's about 40 minutes, give or take, from my house to the job. I haven't commuted like that since I lived in Arizona over 11 years ago. Can I do it? Well I think I can do it, I know a lot of other people who make long ass commutes for the sake of a great job. Why should I be any different? It's not like I'm too good to work for awesome people who ask me to sing for my interview. Because if I was feeling that I was too good to go work for these people then I would suddenly find myself acting like the same fuckwad assholes who treated me with hostility and prejudice at some of my previous jobs. And I really just, simply, can't let happen.

At least your commute will be against the grain so you won't have to deal with too much traffic I bet.

Should you ever find yourself stuck in Tukwila, know that Roth is just one city away in Kent. You have his cell number, yes?

Also, if you drive home, you can always stop off at Georgetown Brewing for $5 growlers of Manny's. That's worth the commute right there.

Congrats again on getting this job!

Thanks, Sizzle! You're right about the against the grain notion ... I hope. :o)

Jen, you goddess, thanks for Georgetown tip. :o)

But I just checked and I do not have Roth's cell #. We shall fix! No worries.

Roth was the first person I thought of who has a long commute. Maybe he should take my cell # too.
