Let the bidding begin

I start my new second job at Skjersaa's Ski and Snowboard shop tomorrow. Fortunately, the management did not require me to correctly pronounce the name of the shop before they offered me the job. I still don't know how to correctly pronounce it. I've taken an informal survey around town and received many different responses. So far, the front runner is "sheer-shas." I guess I will just avoid ever having to say the name when I am at work.

As I blogged on an earlier post, simply not being a complete idiot is grounds for commendation at Mt. Bachelor. So, me being a semi-intelligent person, I was told by my boss that he was trying to give me a raise that would match the pay-rate at Skjersaa's if I agreed to stay at the mountain full time. I doubt I will take him up on the offer even if he does secure the raise. But, now that I seem to have started a mini bidding war amongst two employers I figured I would open the bidding to the general public. I have many skills and services to offer. Among my areas of expertise are...

1. Reducing worldly belongings down to one vehicle load
2. Driving long distances
3. Oregon Dunes, and Mission 66 (I can just hear the money adding up for that one)
4. Drinking PBR

My work ethic mantra: "It's good enough for government work."

Let the bidding begin

I will bid a nearly-complete syllabus in exchange for your ability to drink PBR. I just can't do beer, at least not well enough to be hipster-good at it. But my budget would prefer it to mixed drinks!

I'll bid on #3 ... heh ... My knowledge of 16th century German related to the Church and the Emperor is about up there in terms of how much money one could fetch with it.

Cabiria: I finally got paid Friday, so I bought a bottle of 1,99euro wine and it's pretty good! I like cheap Austrian wine...
