Monday morning

So, I get a call from a friend of mine who places consultants with opportunities, and she wants to talk to me about an opportunity. Turns out that the opportunity is a consulting gig that's been outsourced from my old company. Should I tell her to tell them to shove it, charge them an asshole premium (charge them more because they're jerks), or figure that I need the work and it's money in the bank, since I'm pretty sure that I qualify for it?

I had a weird dream last night. I dreamed that I filled a salt cellar, and when I looked inside of it, there were all of these ants crawling around among the salt. Eventually the salt was gone and there were just all of these ants in there. Anyone have a clue what it means? I'm generally not into dream interpretation, but this one seemed significant because I remember it so clearly.

Does anyone know any psychics who work with the police to solve crimes? Know of any good books on the subject? Any good websites? I have an idea that I want to explore.

Not ten minutes ago, I got a call from the HR director at a company that I had submitted a resume to over the weekend, asking me to come in for an interview. I meet with her on Friday afternoon. I'll tell ya, things are happening. Obviously, I have to evaluate what their offering against anything that might come up with the consulting, but you know, it's good to have options. And, you know, that's the Libertarian creed: choices are good.

Got this one from draiguisge:

[1] Think of a word you would use to describe me.
[2] Go to Google Image Search and search for that word.
[3] Select the picture you see as most fitting, and post it as a reply to this entry.
[4] Post this in your journal.

General crap, stuff and junk

It's rained all day, thanks to hurricane/tropical storm/tropical depression Jeanne. We didn't get it anywhere near as badly as they did in Florida. Geez, I hope this is the last one.

Was getting ready to go work out this morning and Mary informs me that we need a new refrigerator, because the light is out. Now, that's creative! Seriously, though, it turns out that the breaker was thrown, and every time we tried to turn it back on, it would throw again. We finally isolated the problem to an outlet in the kitchen into which one of my furry little darlings had taken a whiz. A call to the electrician (I am not allowed to touch the house current) got a new one installed and up to code, as it happens, plus we had a situation with the breaker box where several lines were attached to a single breaker, which as I understand it is not a very good idea, so we got that done, and it wasn't all that costly.

You know, I've just been sitting around in my sweaty workout clothes since I got home. Maybe I should go take a shower and quit farting around here. I was going to go out to a Job Ministry meeting this evening, but the weather's crappy and I have to be up early in the morning to take the car to the dealer. Plus Two and a Half Men and CSI: Miami are on tonight. I'm so easy to please...

This is just too damned good to pass up...

My dear friend majkia, while playing the "find an image that matches a word that makes you think of me" game (found here), managed to find this image, which she found by entering the word "libertarian" into a Google Image search. Just out of curiosity, I followed the link to the original article. Most of you, of course, will be offended. I, of course, thought that it was as funny as hell.

Thanks, majkia! HAHAHAHAHAHA!
