Zoner en fuego!

Warning, the world is coming to an end, MegaZone has a job.

I've kept quiet about this since Friday since I didn't want to jinx myself, and my overly pessimistic attitude prevails most of the time anyway. Friday I went in to interview at a place called Cyphermint in Marlborough, MA. 421 Boston Post Road, right near RCN and the few gweeps left there. Very easy commute from Worcester too, which is nice.

Well, before I'd left the building, I was hired. Everyone liked me, they seemed to think I had the right skills, and after I'd met with the folks they'd planned to have me speak with they had me talk to the CEO. By the end of that talk he'd said something like "We'll get an offer letter out to you." So things looked pretty damn good, but I knew that the manager I'd be working for had actually been interviewing others *and* had more people coming in today. It was obvious the CEO was kind of pulling rank and I was worried about them maybe talking about it after I'd left and deciding to wait and see or something. But I just called to confirm and they said my letter went into the mail today, so I'll probably have it tomorrow. They even said I could start tomorrow if I wanted to, but I have some errands I've been putting off that I need to take care of before I start, so I might not start until Monday. (Like the *two* recall notices on my car I've been meaning to get to for over a month now...)

So, it looks like I'll be a productive member of society again soon. I am a bit nervous - new job after not working full time since last *JUNE*. I know I'm rusty on things, and on an intellectual level I'm pretty sure I can get back up to speed fast, but on a gut level I'm feeling "Please don't let me fuck this up."
