Everyone in my office has gone to war with each other fighting over who has to take over my job responsibilities since they are not replacing me till May or June. It is highly entertaining.

I jumped the gun because I am not leaving for another week and a half, so I figure I will give the update. I get a call last night from HR of the new job and they had found me an apartment at a crazy good price. The price is so good that it actually scares me. It is less than I pay now and I have an excellent deal now. The only problem is that it is right in Elmira and I was hoping to try to move to Corning. I am going to check it out this Friday on my way back to the AVO. The other problem I am having is coming up with a good nickname for Elmira. HElmira seems too obvious to me. I had picked 'The Glass Cage' for Corning, because Corning invented glass or something like that that. The only thing I have to work on is the Mark Twain retired here and every other thing is named after him and the other half is name after some dude by the name of Samuel Clemens. The only other famous thing might be that there was a Union prison camp there during the Civil War. I have heard tell that it was worst that Andersonville, but the north won so it is the South that is portrayed as the barbarians. So If anyone has any ideas please leave them in the comments.

This will be my last post for a while. I am leaving my job and taking a job in Elmira. I just gave my boss my two weeks and he tried to talk me out of it. This of course means that I will be moving. It is about a 50 minute drive from the GBA to my new job. I will be communing for the last 2 weeks of this month and since I am headed home the next to weekends, I plan on moving a lot of small stuff to my friend Joe's house. He has the most room to store it and is closer than my parents. I suspect that at the new job blogging will be very light to non-existant and because of the move and finding an apartment and my lack of a laptop this I suspect will be my last post for a least a month possibly into the end of march. Thank you everyone who leaves comments. I'll be back.
