Hmm... I'm considering joining the Army (Canadian Forces). This will be interesting. I've been quite motivated and getting a lot of things done for this. Who knows, I might actually get the job I'm applying for!
Anyway, I'm applying as an officer for the 3rd Regiment Field Engineering, based here in Montreal. It's actually the same regiment an ex-boss of mine (when I worked in the Chem lab) works at. Hoo boy, I'm not sure whether I'm crazy in a good way or bad way that I'm seriously doing this.
I mean, I used to ponder joining the Grenadier Guards and getting easy money, but they don't really do much... just stand around looking pretty in the bear-skin hats in all weather (which would be why they pay a pretty penny). So I've been considering an Engineering type position for a while... but do I really want to handle mine fields? I mean, what else will I do, go for Medic training? I've decided to go for the Engineering, and we'll see if I can pull all the material together for them in time.
Hmmm... After that Fish'n'Chips article, I feel a real need to write about poutine, Montreal's answer to the british "instant heart-attack". Well... another day.
