It made me extra glad that I went to the effort of calling back my old contracting agency about an *extremely lucrative* job "in Seattle" (imagine that said in a voice of mystery). Of course, I only really called because of the lucrative part (it would be anywhere from $10 to $15 an hour more than I'm making now, putting me in a salary level higher than I've ever been in my life), but then it turns out it's also very close to me ... at *$ (get it?), which is nice and bikable from my house. Three months of steady employment would be really nice at this point, you know?
Lessee ... otherwise, I was really debating whether the work environment at Q*** is exciting or oppressive. Are we a stable of QA Mercenaries waiting for our next target? Or are we a bunch of faceless, interchangable knowledge worker drones, the final step before the work gets sent to India?
I'm off to the 8 PM movie at Swansea Espresso tonight. Dennis said he'd let me in to tonight's show for free. Maybe I'll get lucky and see another of my friends there, since Worthy Opponent won't be around.
