What manner of blog is this?

Dear Readers (and non-readers),

I am pleased to announce that after months of intense treatment and rehabilitation, I am finally recovering from the blobber virus which so viciously attacked me this last July. The blobber bug, whose bite can have a lethal effect on writers' motivation to blog, was spread in epidemic proportions over the Summer. Although there are still some traces in my immune system (and the doctor warned me about frequent cases of remission) I decided I was ready to take my first few feeble steps back into the blogosphere.

So what's new?

Well, two weeks ago I started a

Sorry about that.

Two weeks ago I started a new job. It's been difficult to say goodbye to the friends I've made and the work I've accomplished at Lead Media Partners, but it's been an exciting change switching to Code Greene.

But wait, I thought you loved your job?!

It's the truth, I really did. I wasn't at all expecting to switch. I was even offered a decent web design job up in Ogden (which would have drastically reduced my commute time) that I ended up turning down without a second thought.

My friend Luke Larsen has been working at Code Greene now for a year now, and has really enjoyed it. He invited me to come and take a tour a few weeks back, and to my surprise, the tour turned into an informal job interview, which turned into a formal offer.

After a lot of prayer and deliberation, I decided to make the switch. The main reason was to introduce a little more variety into the type of work I do. At CG, we work on a client per client basis to build custom business solutions for our customers. Because it's client work, the range and diversity of the work is as wide and diverse as our client base.

There are some other nice perks that have resulted from the switch as well; like the commute. CG is nestled right at the heart of Salt Lake City, around 350 S. and State. I love the charm of working downtown, eating at new places, talking with strangers, running to catch my train, and all that. But back to the topic of this paragraph: the commute. I'm actually writing this post from the comfort of a cushy little seat on Frontrunner. It's been great to be able to do homework, read, sleep, and play while I travel to and from work. Much more relaxing that fighting the crowds on the freeway; plus, I ride free because I'm a student which is saving us a bundle on gas! W00t!

Commute aside, the atmosphere at Code Greene is lotsa fun. We have xbox, foosball, pool, ping pong, air hockey, and even a treadmill and shower. Not that I've ever used the treadmill, but it's nice to know that I could if I wanted.

Well, I'm pulling into Salt Lake, so I must end my epistle. But before I do, I'd just like to let any others who have been afflicted by the blobber virus know that there is hope. In fact, I'm starting a foundation right now. Just leave some money in an envelope down by the old oak tree, and I'll make sure something magical happens!!!

Hello! I am so happy to see you & Lydia posting. I am glad you are liking your job. Right now I could use a couch and fooseball table. Unfortuately we don't have those at the bank.

haha. Welcome back, Babe! I think everyone can use a dose of Mike as part of a balanced, nutritious breakfast. Not that anyone is actually going to eat you.... oh shoot. Was I just explaining my joke again? Dang.

Wah ha ha! The interrupter was disturbing and hilarious! Thanks for sharing that jewel, and welcome back, I didn't know you were suffering from such a debilitating disease - I probably should have sent flowers . . .

A little slow catching up here.
I am an interrupter at times. So, slap me if I do it to you.
Good to see your blip on the blog radar...if only I could get out of my dark blogless place. *Sigh*

So glad you're back . . . even if I, myself, am always a bit slow to catch up on reading everyone's blogs! I love them!

Get an immunization for that blobber's bug - we don't want it happening again.

Hey Mikey! Are you sure you are recovered, I think you should think about a booster:)
