Stately LLama Manor Update

Big nooz around here: we're NOT moving.

Right before I was, umm, locked out of my own damn blog for 3 weeks, I had the big interview. It was right after getting back that the old machine went to puppy heaven, so I never got to write about it.

It wasn't a bad interview--it didn't go down in the annals as an interview I blew. On the contrary, I was great. But there was something off when I got there that I couldn't quite put my finger on, and had decided that if they would make the offer, we'd pass (which would suck as it would be a huge raise and some other real positives, but a nagging series of red flags on the work side as well as a tricky set of issues about the family's move).

Fortunately, though, I didn't have to do that, as (after hanging it out 2 weeks after having said they would make a decision the day after I left) they made the offer to someone else, the inside candidate.

Still, it would have been nice to hear from them that I they went with someone else before reading the press release (although that in and of itself substantiated my gut feeling that it wasn't the right move).

Anyhoo, I learned a great deal from going through the process and that was a great plus. And I had one kicking scallop dinner so I think I came out ahead on the deal.
