Ready To Go... I Think

We're coming down the homestretch, awaiting the arrival of our newest employee here at the offices of Know What I Mean. A bag has been packed ( a second one hasn't been yet... and yes, that would be my bag ), and everything is almost in place.

The next step is to pick up the company car for the new employee. To accommodate the needs of his job, it looks like the company has settled on a Ford Escape. Fingers are crossed that everything goes well with the paperwork this week, and by week's end, I should be able to break in the vehicle in for him. While at the dealership, the CEO of Know What I Mean was really looking at getting the Shelby Cobra, but the VP of Operations/Development really put a nix on that idea.

And while I imagine I haven't even begun to figure out how much paperwork involved in hiring a new person is ( and there has been a shiatload so far ), some of the most important paperwork is already in process. Yesterday, I sent off a letter ( on his behalf, but it appears to have come from him ) to the Green Bay Packers. Why the Packers you ask? Well, let's just say that he's getting a headstart on his place in line for season tickets. We await the confirmation letter from the Packers, and will be quite proud of the fact that his first ever piece of mail will be received from the Green Bay Packers ( and before he every gets anything from the SSA ). For those of you living under a rock - the Packers have been sold out on a season ticket basis since 1960, and there's an estimated 35 year wait for season tickets. More information than you need to know ( and all memorized by Nort ) can be found here.

His office space is all set up and ready to go, with the finishing touches added since the last look.

I know you're never ready... but now it's almost time. Yikes.

It's a scary thing but awesome at the same time. Good luck - you'll remember every moment of it!

Oh - and just so you know - that room will NEVER look that clean again. :o)
