Amidst my search for employment there have been a number of exciting developments. Jacob discovered a family of velociraptors living on our sun porch on Tuesday. Wednesday through Friday were spent herding the baby dinosaurs outside our apartment and into the park across the street. While Derek was wrestling Bob, Jim and Mary Louise (we named them) on Thursday I went to visit a small nursery called Snug Harbor Farm, where I had a long conversation with the owner, Tony about Landscape Architecture and such. He was very helpful and sent me on my way with a number of contacts and a promise of employment if none of the big wigs were hiring.
Meanwhile, Derek in his infinite bravery journeyed behind the stove to clean up some spaghetti sauce and discovered a number of exciting things, including a .45 bullet.
Since Thursday I've been making calls and setting up meetings with some firms around the area. More to follow next week.
In other news a group of bitter Quebecois have arrived and brought some frigid miserable weather. The warm, sunny weather we've had since we arrived in Maine was replaced by torrential downpours and sub 60 degree days. The windows were closed and our sandals were relieved of their duty by slippers. The wave report as of yesterday was quite exciting with tumultuous action.
Luckily, the good people of Maine discovered the Quebecois Clan hiding beneath the roller coaster at Old Orchard Beach and banished them back to their Canadian home. As a result, the warm weather and sunshine have made a dramatic reappearance.
Presently, Jacob is training for the upcoming Feline Olympics in the high jump event by repeatedly leaping over the gargantuan broom as it sweeps across the kitchen floor.
