Legoland California will wrap up its search for a new "master builder" for its park later this month. A number of finalists from all over the country, including a corporate lawyer from New York willing to give up a six-figure salary, are hopeful that they'll get the job.
I was about 15 at the time so my warped teenage mind enjoyed dropping big lego asteroids on the trains full of people.
Quite sad really, but we (my cousin and I), even developed a timetable and route network for the buses (self-built using Lego & Technic mechanics to make a cool steering system, and later even remote control with automatic doors!), trains, and monorails. Ahh the good old days...
geeze i sound old! but i would still like to get paid to do my dream job.... oh wait - i do! Web manager, it manager and sales manager rolled into one with the added bonus of flexi-time, broadband access completely unmonitored and spare time to surf aimlessly!! with perks & bonuses! Woohoo!
Back to the point - most lawyers have silly amounts of money in the bank as they don't spend it... they have millions sitting there but still finance their new car instead of buying outright in cash for less! Go figure.
Chances are, $100k salary in the US is better than £100k in the UK coz of the cost of living... so damn expensive!! I pay £450 a month rent ($800) on my place - a one bedroom house (two up two down), which is subsidised. Still expensive but cheaper than most people pay! Our public transport fares have been pushed up again by an average of 20p (50c), and no doubt in the new fiscal year gas will rise as usual.
Right, I'm done ranting... anyone got a house for sale in the US near some parks so i can move out? (jk)
