Moved from the hotel to an apartment on Sunday, finally.
So, after signing a huge stack of paper and answering lots
of complicated questions (What is my social security
number? Do I want an insurance?) I could move in, not
before I got another huge stack of paper advising me of all
sorts of things. Including the health risks of scraping
down potentially lead-containing paint off the walls of my
rented apartment. I sometimes love the way the
state of California cares about my safety.
The pros of the new accomodation include a small kitchen with cooker and oven, the cons include the bed, which can be flipped into the wall, and which is way too short. That sucks. I somehow managed to get sleep anyway.
I also moved into another office today. It is really moving time. I'm now at Agilent's site at Santa Clara, which is much nicer that the Mt.View one. I also got transferred to another team, with which I'll probably work together on Internet stuff. I haven't talked to the manager yet, though. Wait and see.
Oh btw, Hello MTV?!? What about actually playing music
videos instead of all the cheesy shows and soaps?!?
Yeah, they played music videos this morning. Gangsta Rap. What an improvement.
Bah. I think really need a radio receiver. Anyone in the bay area reading this who has a spare one to lend me till September? You can mail me: firstname.lastname@example.org
