Ed tweeted us and we all met at this great little restaurant in China town. It was a stir-fry place vaguely based on the Japanese Benny Shawna. This felt more authentic but still the theatrics were barely tolerable.
Ed announced that he had rented an office space. It was located near my old neighborhood and would act as our headquarters if we chose to accept tentative employment. I wouldn't show it, but I was very excited about it. E-mailing resumes, and getting rejected is not exactly fun.
I think that Ed knew the chef-owner of the restaurant. He took our picture by the guardian lions and gave us mass quantities of baujiu for free, which incidentally, knocked my socks off.
Even with all of these festivities I'm still a bit down though...

We went to a small office building downtown. The manager there had let everyone go for the day because they were, as he said, "dead in the water. " They were using very old gear so we worked our mojo and updated things the best we could. He watched our every move. I think that he was worried that we were going to rip off his equipment. Now that's a laugh. At the end of the job he was still a bit skeptical. He paid us and we left.
Bill and I have decided to go back to his place for some game time till dinner tonight.

Handed out several resumes today. I've had no responses from any of my attempts. Not a single interview. I called Ed and he suggested that I hang in there. He said that he was trying to get accounts but it was difficult. Ug...
I went to sleep tonight feeling pretty discouraged, and what do you know, a freaking nightmare. I couldn't sleep the rest of the night. Sigh....
