and the news is...

So, in case you don't read johnmeier1's journal, he accepted a job as the Science Reference Librarian at the University of New Orleans, so we'll be moving there come December. He starts December 19. I'm excited. Now I have to find a job there, too! The people there seem really nice and are going to send job announcements to John for me. They're also going to help us find a place to live. I suppose we'll go down some weekend in November to look at apartments. I can't wait! My mom says she would be packing already if it was her. But John said not to. :)

Cool. Congratulations to him on the job, and good luck to you on the job-hunting.

This is so awesome. As much as Devin and I would love to visit you and John in Bradford, PA, I think New Orleans will be such an awesome place to live and visit friends. I am really happy for both of you and I will keep my fingers crossed that you get a job.

Yay for banana trees!
I am so envious. I would love to live somewhere more tropical. I bet you'll be crying all the time down there when you realize how much you miss nearly totaling your car on snowdrifts. *eyeroll*

Re: Yay for banana trees!
I can see a foot of snow on the ground when we're trying to move out! Curse you, snow! (Don't be fooled by my happy viewfinder friend.)

(John's brother's neighbor has a banana tree and a lime tree that hang into his yard, so when they are ripe, instant fruit! Too bad they're moving to Washington state!)

Dude! New Orleans is great. Lots of freaks there. ;-) I looked for a job there too when I was wanting to leave PA but the Daytona job came up first. Now I have another person to visit in Nola. Tee hee. There's a great restaurant (one of many) in the Quarter called the Gumbo Shop. Gotta try it as soon as you get settled. Good luck!

Re: Awesome
Maybe we'll be able to visit you in Daytona now! I've never been to Florida at all.

Re: Awesome
You and your spousal unit are most welcome to visit me. It's about a 13 hour drive to Daytona from Nola. You can also take Amtrak for less than $100 each round trip. The train goes to Deland, an inland town about 1/2 hour from me. (I'm taking Amtrak to New Hampshire in October - excited about that!)

Unfortunately if Hurricane Katrina does what forecasters are, uh, forecasting, there may not be much of a New Orleans to move to. :-(

Re: Awesome

You seem to have a lot of crash space handy in Florida. Maybe it's time for a trip.

My house is still standing.

Well, I take back visiting you in NOLA. Looks like there won't be much left. I knew I should have gone there when I had the chance a few years ago. :(

Seriously, did John get any info about worst case scenarios? Will Katrina affect anything?

Re: Katrina
John hasn't heard anything from UNO as far as I know. Of course, they are all closed down there. But UNO is right by Lake Ponchartrain... So mostly I don't know anything! I don't think they're going to take back his job offer. And I think there'll still be a lot to visit.

Congratulations to your husband! And good luck to you in your job hunt. New Orleans is an awesome city! It's good you're not there now, though. I hope the clean up over there goes well.
