Had a discussion with my contracting company on Friday and the project manager this morning. Looks like I'll be here until at least September. After that, we'll see what other work there is.

It's kind of quiet right now, but we're still in development, and it's probably going to get busy by the end of July when we go into testing and the users start to break the work we've done and complain how nothing works the way it used to. (They always do.)

My bank balance is kind of relieved to have the work, though. I just have to keep from buying everything in sight (or spending everything on food). And holidays will probably have to wait until October-ish. Ideally, I would have something until December, get to take the summer off (and spend some time with [personal profile] grav_ity when she comes to Oz), and then plunge back in again in January...

I wonder if I could negotiate, say, 4 days a week for the next couple of weeks? If they're paying me daily, but I'm not needed every day of the week (which i'm not right now and probably won't until we go into testing), I could maybe get some stuff done at home. I just don't quite know how to bring this up with the manager...

Another rec.

summary: Bucky Barnes and Donna Noble, intergalactic space vagrants.
tags: James "Bucky" Barnes, Donna Noble, Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence, Crossover, IN SPACE!, Bucky Barnes Needs a Hug, and occasionally gets one
notes: An exceedingly enjoyable crossover! In character, quirky, and delightful.

-- wow. I have three NPT gifts. That almost never happens. Now I just have to convince myself that they're not pranks or something.

If you receive more than one gift in an exchange, does it matter to you, personally, whether the gift is the assignment that they had to write or a treat which they did gratis?

Do you respond differently to one as compared to the other?
