So, I sold out and got myself a 'real' job. It's working fulltime (36hrs) for Telstra. I applied for a fairly standard phone monkey job, but then the people at the recruitment agency looked at the sort of stuff I'd done at my old job and were like 'Hey, how would you like to do this much better paid job, not in a call centre?' So of course I jumped at the chance! So I think I'm like, case manager for coporate and government accounts, so they call and say 'We need this this and this' and I follow it through to the end with all the different departments to make sure it happens. I think.... :S I guess I'll find out for sure when I start tomorrow.

We've nearly got all the mixing and stuff done for the Pugs demo. Just a couple of songs I wouldn't mind redoing a few parts for, but I don't think we're going to get time before the gig this weekend, so we're doing a 'housewarming special edition' and then remixing stuff later for the proper version. Linda and I did up the cover art yesterday, and that's being printed today so fingers crossed it turns out ok.

Also, super great news for the band is we've got the booking agent for a few very important venues round town (and also the two coasts) wanting to handle us, which would be fucking awesome!

As for moving to England, looks like it's going to happen but possibly not till March or so of '09. I wanted to go at the end of next year, but it'd be the middle of their winter but Linda's a wuss in the cold, so she wants to move in a slightly warmer month. :P Will actually work out well in the end, because I'm not getting actually Christmas up north this year, so we can go do that next year before moving.

Well...off to buy myself some business pants... :(

Thanks! :) I'm sure it'll be fine, especially since it's the exact hrs I want, and a hell of a lot more money than I'm currently earning. Yes, I am that shallow. :P
When you get back from the farm you guys should come round the new house. Or we should go to batavia...I've fallen in love with that place.
