Joe gets a job
Joe has been taken on as a software developer with a computer firm that is named after a spider. Expect his own site to be renamed as "arachnid software".
It is quite a coup for him considering that he started studying IT little more than a year ago. He has definitely found his niche. As it was for me, programming is just easy for him. I shook his hand to congratulate him when he gave me the news: Very demonstrative by traditional Anglo-Saxon standards! Joe did see that as a rite of passage (to be anthropological about it)
He wants to finish his Uni courses this year so is happy the job is only part-time at the moment. He expects that his role will expand in time, however.
I took Joe, Kate and Kristian to our favourite Japanese restaurant to celebrate. I took a bottle of Barossa Pearl to help but nobody drank much. Joe and I are natural jokers so we don't need alcohol to become cheerful.
