Well, I've been off this week (actually, since Wednesday of last week — that job finished up early), but the temp agency called early this afternoon with a couple of weeks for me starting Friday. It sounds like less that totally engaging work, but I can stand it for that short duration. That's one of the advantages of temp work.

And when this one finishes up, it's back to the quarterly conversion project I worked on last quarter. Every time one does it, the rewards get a little better.

The other cool thing is I think I'm nearing the number of hours I need to put in for jbru to get a "finder" bonus.

Ghu, Foo, and Roscoe!
I was looking at someone else's weblog, idly curious about why I was getting so much traffic from it, and noticed that someone who'd commented there was "Fredcritter", whose icon was an oddly familiar-looking cartoon I'd never seen before, and whose brief comment sounded a lot like ...


I clicked through, and darned if it wasn't you.

Hi, Fred! How goes?

Yup, it's me all right. Or me mostly right. Somewhat right? Kind of in that region, anyway.

It goes, it goes. "Let's put wheels on it — it'll be easier to pull 'round." You know. Like that. It is not the best of times; it is not the worst of times.

Anyway, Hi, yourself, t! Fancy seeing you here. Did you happen to check out my back posts? There's some there I think you might enjoy.

(Are you even going to see this? I'm not sure how it all works with anonymous posters.)

How's by you? And, yes, love back.

Hey, that's cool, Fred, glad they are finding work for you. And thanks for spreading the wealth. Glad I "found" you!

That's what I founf with temp work too. Who cares what the place is like if you know that in X weeks you need not see it again. I found it easy to be detached.

Yup. Plus companies bringing in temps are usually in a jam of one sort or another, so one gets to be a "hero." Hard to beat that kind of egoboo, even if it is just in the mundane world rather than in fandom where it really counts.

It is nice to feel appreciated which is one reason I'm glad I made the change to kitchenwork. I find that on the whole chefs appreciate the good job I do for them. Which is not as good as egoboo as you suggest. Still you make do with what you can where you can.
