Yeah, she met you - at Murphy's, no less - and didn't run away screaming - had to be a keeper! :)

Yep. I remember her. That's great for you, man.

Are you still over in the Gulf somewhere?

Nope. I got my BS a few years ago on a short trip back to my old school and went back to Bahrain for 6 months. Then moved to New Zealand to follow RainbowBrite to her new job (which she has since quit).

They were paying people to go to teacher's college so I took them up and finished the program last year - can you believe I am teaching secondary math and physics???

I've been working at a school here for about a year and am going to quit at the end of the year. They offer weekly stipends to full time students under certain household salaries here and since RB is getting her PhD, I figured I'd go back, as well. The cash ends up being about 75% of what I make now since we will BOTH get the bennie. I'm happy to have someone else pay for my education... Gotta love the socialists.

So when are you guys coming to visit?
