Der Flood

I’m not sure what it is about karma coming back to bite or kiss you in the posterior area, but it seems to be flooding back my way nicely. Not only do I have 3 days a week work, plus two other projects on the side, but today I got a call from one of the people that I called for my initial market research for the Self Employement Program. She said that she had forgotten why she kept my phone number, but there must have been a good reason. Long story short, the possibility of a big contract to do a site, perl and databases, my favorite. I’ll know more about it on Friday. There will be of course a lot of checking into the exact specs that the client wants, as not to get my butt in a sling with “but I wanted you to do this….” type situations. Course, the big danger here is that over-work will kill me, but that’s a risk I’m willing to take. This will also mark the first job that I’ve gotten “cold” so to speak, without influence or help from friends or ex-workmates. Very cool.
