The Autobiography of Russell
Life from a different perspective
Call back, contract disputes, and house jobs
Oh yes, Papa Johns called back yesterday and said my driving record came back clean (What did you expect? I've never been in an accident or pulled over). I'm to bring in my license, insurance, etc Monday at 2pm and then they'll schedule my training (There's training to driving pizzas around? Oh well, I guess they put you to work in the store between deliveries or something). *crosses fingers* All I need is about twenty hours and I'll be able to pay my bills this month.

Oh, other news: the small contract client finally got in touch with me this morning via IM. We ended up hassling it out for two and a half hours about what exactly I was expected to do, and of course their confusion on what exactly they were getting from me. My job was to modify a component, and the default component settings obviously didn't look like the demo site's settings, so they were getting on to me to make it look the same. Except configuring it was no where in the contract, nor could it be even remotely considered in the contract. I never would have accepted the contract if it was in the terms to also configure it for just 75$. We were just about to have to take it to ScriptLance to arbitrate the terms, but they finally relented and said they'll pay me for my work immediately after they test the video upload modification I made. (Shouldn't they have done that, like, a week ago?) *sigh* Even if they pay me today it's still going to take some time before it can go through the system (it being the weekend tomorrow and all) so I won't be able to pay my cell phone bill on time. There goes my 150$ rebate for the phone.

Well then, I must be off to ... take care of some business (stupid libido has been fluctuating even more than my mood), and then rake the yard. My brother has offered to pay me 20$ for raking the leaves. That'll give me enough gas money to make those pizza deliveries so I can actually work the job that will pay the rest of my bills.

Best of luck (especially with the libido).

For hygienic reasons I shave (or at least trim where I can) certain areas that normally don't get such attention. It doesn't help that during the period immediately after and until hair growth has been fully established my libido goes nuts. So to speak.

Quirky and the first I have heard of such a thing.

Mine goes through highs and lows (mostly lows), but sometimes I exercise it just for the endorphins so I can sleep. Has not been working as well as Ambien, but I'm out of pills.

I have to advise you to be extra careful when doing this pizza delivery job. I used to work pizza delivery myself and there is one major thing they may not tell you. If you are to get into an accident on the job, the insurance company must NEVER know or they will immediately cancel your insurance. Just something you should know.

Heh, I didn't want to comment on the libido thing, but how could I not?Mine is rather random in and of itself. And the advantage of not having to choose is generally always having someone there to help you take care of that... :-P

Pizza Delivery: I figured as much, actually. One of the things in the disclaimer is that they won't cover any accidents you get into while working. I also know that my insurance says that if I take a job where I use my car as part of my work then they won't cover any accidents either. Oh yes, this is going to be fun. On the good side I'm already a very careful driver so it's not very likely I'll be getting in a major accident. *crosses fingers again*

Yeah, I figured you were a careful driver from your clean record. I just like to make sure that people getting into the industry are aware as most of the time they don't tell you about that. *knocks on wood and crosses his own fingers for you*
