You know that whole thing with the not moving to Canada and stuff? Yeah… not so much. Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch
Don’t get the wrong idea that I’m indecisive or anything. I originally signed the offer that would take me to Canada while in Austin dealing with the stress of meeting ADG’s family (yeah, that went… yeah), with a recruiter pressuring me three times a day, and without my home resources to assist me. Right after I signed and faxed it off my heart sank, and I knew that I’d made a mistake.

Since then, I’ve been literally sick, teetering between getting ready to move (Defense Exhibit A) and trying to figure a way out of it (Defense Exhibit B). Finally I decided that it really just wasn’t the right thing for me and mine, and notified the company. To my surprise, instead of being angry with me (it’s a bit of a faux pas to reject the offer after you’ve, you know, accepted it and all), they were very understanding and wished to open the door to more negotiations. They acknowledged that the recruiter didn’t exactly treat me fairly (he misled me on a number of key points) and also admitted that they may need to reevaluate their salary plans of they are resorting to international candidates to fill their position. In short, they totally want me.

I’m not sure that money will solve my problems in the long run (I’m one of those types. You know, those guys with “feelings” and stuff), but it will be interesting to see how this plays out.

In other news, Santa is dead.
