Does it still feel good to feel wanted?

Yes, and even better, it feels good to know that I apparently have a great ongoing gig! When you're a freelancer, you're looking for a new job every freakin' day. Once in awhile, you get locked into something sweet, and you ride that wave as long as you can. Unfortunately, sometimes that wave peters out.

For example, the last two ongoing proofing/editing jobs I had (roughly three years each) were eventually outsourced to India. I find it hard to imagine that people in India have a better grasp of American English and its excentricities than, say, I do, but there you go.

So, yeah. I'm still stoked. I like the work (when it's not dumped on me at the last minute!) and they like my work, so what's not to love?

Currently, I'm taking a week off, and I'm loving that even more.

I'm heavily self-medicating today in your honor, my honor, and in response to the insanity that hit my hometown overnight.

God rest their souls.

I just finished the chapter files for another book - this one on voice/speaking disorders - with the front/back matter and references still to come. Even though there will be more files to work on before this project is completely finished, I feel like I just climbed Mt. Everest - my proofreading projects are (nearly) done!

I've been giddy ever since I walked up today. I'm expecting my 1TB SSD to arrive that I ordered yesterday. Got a good deal on it for Cyber Monday yesterday.

Hi Jackie, and welcome!

I'm an old lady and hopelessly non-technical. What is a 1TB SSD?

I'm also giddy about receiving an order I made recently.

My telephone system (landline/ answering machine) has been crapping out for some time now. The whole shebang is at least 18 years old, there is a ton of "snow" on the line, the wireless phone battery now lasts only about an hour before it needs a charge, and for the last eight months or so, I've been getting endless (fake) charity calls - least five or six a day.

My new phone system has the ability to block calls/numbers. I can't wait to set it up!

Also a one terabyte solid state drive. A hard drive with no moving parts.

This morning I received the caller ID ID'd a number as being from one of my (dead for 5-6 yrs) best friends' father. What's even worse, the father has been dead for at least 35-40 years.

I think the number was spoofed.
