A Grand Hooray for gravel-free kidneys and liver function! That must be a massive relief.


Also, a lesser hooray for 3D printer shipments!

Wait, what? Like literally? That's awesome!

Unless the new job is something like Assistant Poop Shoveler, in which case I think I'd stay put.

The job is to manage the online side of a resort here, and then to take care of guests during their stay. About a 50:50 split. Sort of like an assistant manager, but no worrying about logistics or the boring side of running a resort. Just internet and people.

It's here.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koh_Rong_Sanloem

There's one other candidate, but I think I'm the stronger of the two. Interview went really well. I mentioned that I speak un petit pue francais, and the owner's face lit up, since French is the second most common language among guests after French, but no one else working their speaks French. Then I got to flex my skills when a French couple had un probleme and I was able to communicate effectively with them.

Reasonable money, accommodation and (pretty fantastic) food included, and they are totally happy with me continuing to do SavyGamer in my own time.

If I get the job, first beer is on me if any of you want to visit.

I kind of resent needing to look for extra work because Brexit fucked my income from SavyGamer, but this seems like a good option.

English is, however, still a challenge.

All the while I was reading that, I was hoping that Savvygamer would continue.

Good work LewieP!

Got out of work early. MrsPaz calls and tells me to drop off the car and go straight back into the city as she's planned 'something' for this evening. Now, it is my birthday tomorrow so I shouldn't be worried... but I really don't like surprises!

If you don't hear from me by midnight, send nudes help. ;)

Fantabulous. It may take a while, but there's every chance I'll take you up on that in a year or so. Planning to commence wandering in 2018 at the latest.
