Employed

Well, it seems to have happened. I have a job.

The aforementioned neighbor who's moving away, when I was there for the yard sale, mentioned, "and if you know any graphic designers looking for a job..." I mentioned that, well, I do, actually. And he had my stop by his soon-to-be former place of employment, a Santa Fe print shop.

It became a bit of a flurry of an interview, which culminated in an offer yesterday, to join the local print shop. It's perhaps a bit more production-intensive that my background is (at least of late), so we've agreed to give it a month, and see if I'm suited to be their senior design-type person.

Combined with the housesitting and such, past few days have been a whirlwind of activity, ending my longest summer vacation ever.

Raph is just unhappy that he has to ship comics cross country rather driving buy in the dark of night and flinging them througha window. I know when I get a package it's a combination of excitement and dread.

Congrats..but wasn't that just a little too easy. Like one of those movies like the Firm where couple (I was going to say young), gets job quickly and it turns out to be a nefarious.

But can you get stuff printed for free? 'cause that's what I'd call a PERK.

Okay - this is just getting a little scary..first the comic book store thing...then the job thing...coincidence? I don't THINK SO! Good things happen to good people at least some of the time and I'm glad that two of my favorite "good people" are getting some good things...
