And the 2004 tax season comes to an end. Actually went out yesterday to the post office to mail something non-tax related, and didn't have to wait in line. It was only after we were on our way out of the parking lot that it occurred to us that we'd risked life and limb, mailing something on tax day. Huh. Maybe the e-filing push is really working?
To celebrate the day, we had terracinque and arkhamrefugee over to watch Fight Club and Harvey. terracinque had never seen Fight Club before. Whee! More people to introduce to the glory and wonder which is Fight Club! Much fun.
Also got a call yesterday from another head hunter outfit. They want to schedule me for an interview next week with a large insurance company for basically the same sort of job I had before, for approximately the same wages and benefits. And get this, they're based out of approximately the same part of town my previous work office was located before, which is a much nicer daily drive than a downtown commute would be. Same job, different company. Seems like a good opportunity to get back into the salary rat race. Not exactly excited about the prospect of being a cubicle monkey again, but I have to admit the appeal of a plump, regular income with snazzy health benefits is seductive. I'll take the position if they offer it to me, but I won't be crushed if they don't. Plus, this company is undergoing some major legal investigation by the Securities and Exchange commission--something I wasn't aware of until terracinque brought it to my attention--so I'm not sure what to think of all that.
But I'm happy that I continue to get calls.
Also, it's undoubtedly old news by now, but heard yesterday from the Dragon*Con Director's mailing list that Joss Whedon has been confirmed as a guest. Fangirl squeeing! He'll be joining Adam Baldwin, Nathan Fillion, Ron Glass, Jewel Staite and Morena Baccarin to pimp Serenity. Now I've just got to find a way to sneak out of the Daily Dragon office for long enough to attend one of their panels.
Got my subscription copy of June's Realms of Fantasy in the mail yesterday with "The Storyteller's Wife" in it. Happy dancing! It's the lead story again, and full-sized and up close, the illustration is even more gorgeous! They also published my photo in the "contributors" section.
But I haven't received my contrib. copies. Hmph.
In worrisome news, the Transfinite website appears to be down, and their guidelines listing is gone from Ralan.com. I'm rather concerned that my poor story has been orphaned. I've fired off an email to the editor. Waiting to hear back.
Work; That's always something you could ask them about directly. Mostly to see how they handle someone inquiring. ;)
Congrats on the Realms of Fantasy thing!! :D Picture and all. Anyone to poke about your contrib. copies?
It's possible the Transfinite site is having technical difficulties. Unless it's been down for more than a week or something?
