Everything to show, and everything to hide. Look into my eyes. Listen.
Today's adventure was visiting a startup belonging to two old friends to see what I could do about their system administration woes. I had already talked with one at a recent party, who suggested I come in and talk to the other, but who also seemed confident that we were just talking about consulting.

Well, I saw the place, and I got two people's lists of the things that need fixing, and yes, I can help. So I signed an NDA and got an account inside their network (not that I can access it from here :-), and once they consolidate two more people's wishlists and fliffle some paperwork, we can get started on that basis. And they seem eager for all the time they can get -- enough so that the possibility of FT employment was floated.

That would totally rock. But one thing at a time, *please*. I haven't even called lothie's recruiter yet. I should be driving in to Fremont tomorrow evening for circle, but I'll have to see how social I'm feeling. Right now it's about at hide-under-the-bed levels.

I feel all accomplished and stuff, because today's list said to clean the cattery and go grocery shopping, and that's exactly what got done. Next stop is clearly world domination, or maybe I'll try making low-carb blueberry muffins first.

*giggles* One step at a time dear...there's an elf who needs dominating first. ;)

I'm thrilled the consulting opportunity seems to be panning out, and please hug the usual suspects for me at circle.

The elf is in France, so I'll have to dominate the better part of North America before I can even GET to the elf who needs dominating....

:-)

*kiss* BTW, on the trip here they upgraded me into semi-business-class. I was booked into row 34 (no kidding!)

*laugh* My first thought upon reading that was United flies to France. But how on earth would I explain your sudden appearance to my boss?!?!

I miss you already. ;)

Besides, when I get you to Europe, I don't want to be distracted by work. And Paris (or London, or Dublin, or Madrid...) would be far nicer than the wee village of Grenoble. The main attraction here seems to be the skiing.

Hey, that reminds me I have low-carb blueberry muffin mix that Air found at Trader Joe's of all things.

Woohoo! on the job prospect, though. And accomplishing your list of Things to Do. :)

Yes, I saw that at the TJs out here, but being a little suspicious of Atkins baked goods at this point, I carried on with accumulating the bits I needed for the recipe I was already planning to use. (TJ's frozen organic wild blueberries, mmm.)

Were you planning on helping Chris* move? If so, I'll bring half of my batch, and if you bring half of the Atkins batch, we can have a side-by-side taste test!

There's a low-carb baking book Ambar will order for me when she sends in her next order for low-carb supplies. At that point, we'll see which low-carb evils I can concoct. Muahahahaha...

YAY AMBAR!

I was beginning to wonder if it was possible for *anyone* to find a job around here, but clearly all that's required is to be cooler than anyone else.
