But wait, that's far too simple to end the story there. Yesterday i got a call from a recruiter, and told him that i was very close to giving a commitment for the contracting job. He was seeking to fill a full-time position, and he managed to arrange a phone screen for me today leading to a job interview next Monday! So I'm going to come in to my temp job, discuss transition, and then head to Boston for this interview.
So yeah, i should be in a great mood, but instead i feel sooooo worn out. Must have been the 100-lb rolls of vinyl i was trying to weigh at my temp job. :-)
