I have a new job!

Postby MarthaP » Thu Nov 12, 2009 1:45 am

It's official! I'm now the manager of the Base Camp Museum Store at the Bradford Washburn American Mountaineering Museum in Golden. It's one of those non-profit do-what-it-takes-to-make-it-work positions. But do you know what it's like to work in the middle of your inspiration? This is the first job I've ever had where I leave it in a better mood than when I arrive.

Jake Norton is Herr Director. Cheez, why do all you mountain men have to be so damned good lookin'?!?! I'm tryin' to concentrate here!

I was on the phone today with Mrs. Pete Schoening. How flippin' cool is that?

Wow. That's all I can say. Wow.

:shock: You and Jake in the same room? I'd already had enough Shangri-la for one day! :wink: Besides, there'll be plenty more of those things to go to.

Oui, surtout si vous avez des histoires de Mssr. Washburn.

Et si vous êtes un membre d'AAC. :wink:

I think you are trying to translate our American idiom of "having a history with someone" in a positive sense. I'm not sure this idiom translates that well.

No, I'm asking if he has stories about Mr. Washburn.
