Straight Talk @ Work

Today we had a "Straight Talk" meeting at work where the VP of Support sat down with my team and discussed the future of our department. They didn't outright say it, but it looks like our team will find its way to one of 4 places: Plano, TX; Aylesbury, UK; Bangalore, India; or Tokyo, Japan. The most likely of all places is Plano, TX. It isn't exactly the ideal place for me to live at, but if I'm given the opportunity to move there then I would seriously consider it. Of all of those places, I would like to move to Tokyo.

That scenario wasn't given to me today, but it was proposed to 2 members of our team. One of them is considering it, the other is definitely going to decline.

The target date of completion of the reorganization is January 2005. I figure, I'll be given an offer to move in November. We'll see what happens then. It may be a good time to start looking for new employment after the summer. In the meantime, I'm going to have to up my savings just in case.

In other news, I played 18 holes of golf. I shot a 114. ARGH!!! It'll get better. =)
