Quickie dream: I was a penguin in the Antarctic, and I was being chased by a huge polar bear. I was running away, hopping from ice floe to ice floe, when I ran out of ice floes, and I had to jump into the water to keep from being eaten.
I jumped, but I started sinking, and no matter how hard I tried I couldn't come up for air.
Pain in the ass cold. Barb's car doors were frozen shut, so I ended up having to take her to work, which meant I had to get out of NiceWarmBed and step into the cold outside. Figured when I got home I could nap for a bit.
Not a chance. Four messages on the machine: Barb needed me to send her some files from home, Denise needed me to call to get an update for shooting tonight, and two calls from recruiters. The first was a job that I had been up for some time go that had been filled; the second was a C/embedded job.
Contract job. Six months minimum, possibly more. Downside is that it's working on a defense contract, and I've always tried to stay away from those. Upside is that it's mondo money.
I'm having a quandry about this. I did send my resume in, and I'll probably get an interview. But if the job is offered, do I take it? On one hand, it would allow me some breathing room financially, but on the other hand, it's working on something that may be used to kill people.
Would working on this be something I can live with?
Micha is at the vet. He's been sick, and has a bad case of laryngitis, but lately he was hiding and not eating properly, and hasn't been drinking any water. He's lost weight and is not his normal pain-in-the-ass self.
While it could be allergies, I'm worried that he may have something more serious.
