Finally Feeling The Pinch

Since last August, my workload has been light, sometimes vanishingly so. As a result, I've been able to blog with alarming frequency, but I knew that a reckoning would eventually come. Either a reckoning would come, or more work, but the longer things go on like this, the more the more-work option seems less likely.

J. just came in, wanting to know my flexibility regarding hours. Would a 30-hour work week be OK? Forty hours certainly seems like overkill these days!

Well, 30 hours a week is certainly a lot better than the alternative - sleeping under the stars with the pigeons. So, maybe I'll have more time on my hands - to maybe write a book or travel to New Zealand, which now has some of the lowest air fares in memory. And maybe more time to blog.

But maybe less money too. Maybe a lot less money. That'll be hard on Bill the Carpenter.

In any event, time is the most precious commodity of all. Time is ever so much more important than money.

(But if you want to spend your time in casinos, money beats time any day).

So, J. is going to take the results our conversation back to the partners for a final decision regarding my employment status....

(dang it, getting paid a prince's ransom to blog was the best setup of all....)

Anyway, in honor of my likely change in status, here's a commemorative video.

Plus, a shout-out to Nick, and hoping for a wonderful weekend for the entire JCS crew!
