November 2005, a month to remember

So this has been one very special month for me. Two things happened:

1 – Got hired full time
2 – Got my dream car

Item #1, hired full time… Some of you may or may not have known, but I left my former company Simple Star in the City for a consulting job with Centrify Corporation. I’m really enjoying the new job and the great commute. It only takes me 15 min. to get to work and I’m learning a ton of Unix and Linux operating systems. Well as of Nov. 1st, I’m officially employed as a full-time Senior QA Engineer.

Item #2, I’m still in a dream! Last Saturday 11/12, Melanie and I made a visit to Capitol Honda in San Jose. We took a look at something I’ve been wanting since 6th grade, it was my dream car, a Porsche 911. I didn’t think it would happen, but we decided to see what kind of deal we could get. Long story short, Melanie got one great deal and I drove my 1996 Porsche 911 Cabriolet off the lot. Pretty much, Melanie worked the whole deal, since I couldn’t believe this was happening and at one point she looked at me and said, “you look a little pale”.

I’m going on my second week with my dream car and I still can’t believe I have it. I don’t see many up here, I’ve only seen 2, even though I know there are probably a ton, but we went to Napa Valley to visit my mom and saw 4 in one day. It’s crazy how that car is so common up there.

Here’s the only picture of “Silvi”, Melanie named her. I’ll be taking more when I have time.
