_dad, I think you related that story earlier but I still love reading it!

The Boston chapter of the Alumni Association is top-notch.

They hold a BBQ every Summer for all the local kids starting their freshman year at Penn State. And they charter buses to shuttle Penn State students back & forth to school for all the breaks (Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc.). I had to pay for the bus, but the cost was modest because they weren't trying to turn a profit.

The women at the BBQ who handed me the bus application form said "This, you definitely want to read!". She was right. :D

I'm supposed to fly to the southeast coast tomorrow for a job interview. It's been an on-going process with an application, cover letter and resume, some written questions they wanted me to answer, then a Skype interview with a group of people which was delayed a week because of Florence and now my departure on Wednesday for an in-person interview Thursday morning. I'm thinking my return flight may be impacted by Michael. I'm starting to wonder if someone is trying to tell me something about this job.

Good luck. For whatever it's worth, at my company, once a person gets past the Skype interview, they're pretty much a shoe-in unless they show up for the in-person interview with their fly down and toilet paper stuck to their shoe.

Mrs psu_dad: You work wearing bunny slippers.
Me: But there's no toilet paper stuck to them.

Thank you. This would be a significant move both professionally and personally. I'm pushing 50 but I'm both excited and scared. I have a hunch this weekend will be filled with a lot of deep thought.

Good luck, Shore. Hope you get the offer and then you have the option of making a decision, vs. having one made for you.
Alex Cora sucks. Mickey Callaway sucks. Baseball sucks. Everything and everyone just sucks. Is it football season yet?
