So I was looking through the admin section on my blog tonight, and I realized that I had the first sentence or two of a post about the time I drove the Nurburgring in 2012 while on an all expense paid trip to Germany on business. What could be more akin to the fabled Happy Ending as a finishing move to an otherwise great massage? Go to Germany for 10 days for free….oh, and by the way, drive a rented race car around the Nurburgring for 2 hours while you’re at it.
Thank you sir, may I have another? ;P
Yes you may! Since the last post I have also switched employers again, I now work for Halliburton, or Sperry Drilling to be precise. I know there are moans and groans about “Halliburton”….but I have to be totally honest here….I’m excited. 2 things…..I never really mention employers on my blog, bad mojo…and, I was a consultant at Halliburton for 6 months in 2012, so I knew what I was getting into. The funny part is, most folks out there don’t.
In the 6 months I spent at Halliburton as a consultant, the one thing that really struck me, and it had a great impact on my thinking about the company, were the number of people who have been there 15, 20, 30 years….met a guy last week who had 40 years with the company!!! Are you fucking kidding me??!? Who does that? I dropped out on another offer from a huge company everyone knows globally to take the job at HAL. And seriously, I’m giddy. It really is a great place to work, most folks around me are clothed in multiple college degrees, dual masters, Phd’s etc. (I feel so naked) In other words, everyone I work with knows their shit, which is a nice feature.
Long story short, life is good. I drove around the coolest, most iconic track in the world, got an awesome job, the wife is good, the family is good, the Merc is at the shop getting all refreshed and spiffy, I own one of the coolest domains on the planet….livin’ the dream.
Til next time…..
