The Desperate Housewives of Graz

Girls

On Friday night, Art and I went out to meet up with my new little group of girlfriends (and their boyfriends and husbands).

From left to right: Mari, Justine and Monika.

Mari is from Estonia (just west of Russia and south of Finland). She is here with her boyfriend, who is from Austria and getting his PhD in Electrical Engineering.

Justine has American parents, was born in Spain, lived in Florida when she was younger, but has lived in Madrid most of her life. She is here with her boyfriend who is from Graz, getting his PhD in Physics.

Monika is here with her husband, an engineer at Chrysler. They are moving back to Detroit at the end of July. :(

So, NONE of us have jobs, and have all seemed to follow the science oriented men in our lives to Graz. Mari said she feels like a desperate housewife here...we could all relate. It makes me feel a little better to know that it's not just me that's having a hard time finding employment here. In fact, it's really hard for Mari and Monika because Austria doesn't recognize the newer eastern EU countries yet and they won't let them work until at least 2010! Maybe we could start our own show....
