April Fools *Update

Wow.  It seems like after every April Fools day I have to clear some things up. 

So here it is.  Damage control.

We thought it would be a fantastic idea to put all of Rusty's siblings (minus the one on his mission) on Craigslist advertising that they had free boxes.  LaRene got 5 calls in the first 30 minutes.  Poor pregnant Ginger got 2 calls very early this morning and tried to do her own damage control with her own Craigslist posting:  http://sandiego.craigslist.org/nsd/zip/1102360101.html.    Kate lucked out and didn't get a single phone call.  Luke and Jon probably got dates out of the situation.  Adam thought it was very amusing until around the 10th phone call.  Ben got us back by posting this email to the family:

-------------------------------

Congratulations, Rust!  Good luck with your interview and I know you'll do great!   Ft. Collins is actually a little bit East of us, so we will no longer be the furthest East.  And of course we'll be practically neighbors.  That's very cool.  Of course you guys can stay with us while house hunting.

Ben

P.S.  If you need any moving boxes, we've got plenty!

Hey guys, it looks like we're moving to Colorado!  At least we're about 90% sure.  I had 2 really good phone interviews with The Box Company in Ft. Collins and they're flying me out for an interview next week.  I really like the job and it turns out I know the hiring manager so I think it could be a done deal.  I'll keep you posted.                     -Rusty

No, we didn't write that letter.  No, we're not moving (yet).  But thanks fam for the congratulations anyways.  A very promising job opportunity opened up in northern Idaho so hold your congrats until later.

Speaking of job opportunities...

It was rather funny when Rusty got a phone call from the Boston Medical Group earlier today.   He thought it was about a position he applied for (he's been applying to be a biostatistician for numerous pharmaceutical companies), but was disappointed when he realized one of his brothers must have signed him up for some ED therapy.  

Until next year...

I'm still confused. So did Benj write the letter that was from Rusty about the job offer in CO?

Bingo! It never came from Rusty's email address. He just inserted that forwarded mail into his own reply to the whole family. Does that make sense? Yeah, probably not.

So, far we have gotten prank phone calls about Mary Kay, University of Phoenix and erectile dysfunction. I think Ginger is behind it.
