Nice! It's a great company to work for so far.

If you don't mind me asking, what role were you applying for?

Something in corporate finance. It may have been something actually out of the corporate offices in Irvine but obviously a WFH role.

So, just went back out there, they had a couple of "Sr. Manager Corporate FP&A" at various locations (Palo Alto, Irvine, Remote). I applied to the remote one just now.

Happy Memorial Day all!

Added another 2,000 miles to Penny. Figured out her pinched wire in the passenger front door with the help of Andrew. Got a new subwoofer. Replaced her cracked center armrest. Added more pins to the headliner... Lol

Went on another camping trip. The dog loves hammocks. Figured out you can hard boil an egg on a campfire in about 30 minutes!

The ignition coils have definitely improved the fuel economy slightly as well. I was able to get 29mpg going 75mph. The stuttering and downshifting out of 4th definitely was affecting the mileage. Now it can hold 4th gear locked up on most grades around here in the midwest at least.

Really enjoying spring! Found my first Morel mushrooms. Threw on the S2000s new Falken RT660s as a joke. Can't even turn the wheel as the tire hits the strut. Despite being the same size as my old RE71Rs these tires are noticeably wider... Weird!
