Editor's Note:  Allen's boss may have said he could have any job he wanted but I'm sure monetary compensation was always understood.  Very odd that two days have passed without pay nor explanation.  I see Allen sought out Edna's company again.  I don't mean to cast a shadow on the poor girl's character but it does seem like her job may be something other than picking and packing.

Woot woot, Andrew Warn has said yest to Allen's proposal.  So it is officially official.
