Next week I start a new job. Back to contract work, with a role doing Application Express development. Yeah ! I do like Apex. I'd previously remarked about the feeling of accomplishment I get when building code. It is nice to see something you've built being used.
I'm contracting through an agency (BSIPeople) who supplied me with a snazzy Sports Bag on sign up. The bag contained the ubiquitous pen, a hat, a drink bottle and a towel. My wife's reaction to the towel was an immediate reference to the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.
"any man who can hitch the length and breadth of the galaxy, rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through, and still knows where his towel is, is clearly a man to be reckoned with"
There's something appropriate about going back to contracting armed with a towel. I'm looking forward to it.
