A good friend here in Houston brought a buddy into town from Las Vegas for a job. He's just gotten a lease and a car...and they called everyone in for a mandatory meeting (those are never good): they almost closed my friend's entire plant down (he's head of operations), but they opted instead to only shut half of it down. My friend's freind who just entered all those commitments got let go.
it really sucks. My friend has twins on the way, and his wife is on doctor mandated bed rest, so the though of him losing his position was especially scary! :(
The market's relatively strong in Houston, though, isn't it? I hope he finds something else soon. If he does, the lease and car won't have been in vain.
it is extremely hot. Especially for engineering, purchasing, and project management. All related to oil and gas.
I went to the closest one and discovered that since the last time I were there, they changed the work hours and now close at 19, instead of 20... Wondering if this general change or specific to that post office I went to another one, a few streets away. It was still open.
To better explain, Elegy here is a spellscar oracle, and our group uses critical hit/fumble decks. And since we're flavoring the nature of her powers as being feytouched, the absolutely insane results of a crit are perfectly in character.
