We got to see Steph and the rest of the crew last night. Everyone started showing up around 6:15pm and didn’t end up leaving until well past 11pm. The standard run down applies here: good food, good drink, and good friends make for a great evening. I keep forgetting how dangerous the game “Catch Phrase” is with this group! My only wish is that we could have done this over a weekend rather than a Monday night, but Steph’s schedule just wouldn’t allow it. Of course, it looks like we will be doing the same thing next Monday too, just with a different group of friends.
Of course that all means I am dragging my butt big time this morning. Luckily, I have very little on my plate for today and tonight so I should be able to recuperate a bit. I doubt I’ll even get to my buff coat tonight. I have so little left to do, but I am pretty sure I’ll be beat by the end of the work day. Maybe I’ll get around to it when my gorget arrives, which should be sometime before Friday. (The armourer emailed me yesterday noting that he shipped it out.) The only thing left to get after that is a decent weight shirt to wear under the coat.
Funny thing about hanging with friends you haven’t seen in ages… every now and again you get a lead on a decent little job. In talking with Chad (Gina’s husband) we got to geek out for a while and come up to speed on each of our projects. He is developing a new online Music distribution channel similar to Napster and iTunes, expected to roll out to beta sometime in November. And as it turns out, he is going to need someone to do user-level documentation and support level technical writing. So, of course, I handed him my card and let him know I may well be interested in some free-lance work as a tech writer. So we’ll see how that all works out. (Not banking on it by any stretch, but it is always good to investigate possibilities for career movement.) And it seems to be the right size project too: not too big at first and easy enough to pull off in my down time, but robust enough to give me some good experience in actually developing documentation from the ground up. A resume builder at the least.
So there it is. I guess I better get back to
