I was offered a contract yesterday for a technical writer position, which my wife told me I had to take. (Tip: The true secret to a long lasting marriage is doing what your wife says). Reluctantly, I will be giving up the carefree life of an unemployed technical writer to live the life in the cubicle fast lane.
The upside is that we will be able to revert to the lifestyle to which we had become accustomed. Which in essence means we will be able to reactivate HBO so I can watch The Wire and hopefully catch up with Six Feet Under.
The downside is that my touch-typing skills will now be devoted more to something that pays. That will probably mean less blogging.
There are a few upcoming events that I am going to be sure to cover. First, the PWers in Atlanta are getting together again to watch the next Presidential debate. If I can have WIFI access, I am thinking about liveblogging our reaction. I'll also be watching the VP debate tonight, if only to see Edwards proposal for a class action suit against of Al Queda. Next up will be election eve.
Later in November, PW will be attending the big protest at Fort Benning at the School of the Americas. Once again, I'll be covering that event and should be able to come up with some interesting video and stills.
Of course, I'll still be posting as the muse requires, but I am not sure how often that is going to work out with my rejoining of the rat race.
