Accounting and Possible Self-employment

Saturday, May 31st, 2008

Yesterday I signed the contract with Client #6,  finished up the project for Client #2, and met with Blessing. I haven’t mentioned her in a while. She’s an accountant who rescued the store from a morass of accounting a couple of years ago, and also was willing to help with inventory, which was certainly a […]

So Client #6 has a great big enormous site. My little niche of helping small businesspeople make their websites into worthwhile marketing tools is completely unrelated to Client #6. The Chief Technology Officer called me to discuss contract work. I can’t say that I was completely on top of things in the interview. “What tools […]

Life Gets Exciting

Quite a few things happened yesterday. I was actually planning to discuss the question of outcasts here, with reference to circus people in particular, because I’ve had a couple of interesting conversations about that lately and wanted to know what you guys thought. However, events took place. First, I had a call from the competitor […]

Partygirl’s doctor has recommended that she go on the South Beach diet for the summer, and she has invited me to join her. A couple of years ago, our friend DrDrew shared his secret for gaining thirty pounds over the summer. You and I might not want to gain 30 pounds over the summer, but […]

Since I came over here last week and crowed about having had a blog post at SEOmoz (and did I mention that it was also Dugg and SEOranked? I bet I did), I also have to come here and report that I got three thumbs down. Not on my post. It would be okay if […]

I’m planning to write an offensive blog post today. I’ll stop for a moment here so you can leave. I’m writing this because of something people have been saying to me a lot during my unemployment. They’re telling me that I will find a job easily because I am smart. Now here’s the first offensive […]

Wow! Check out Chanthaboune’s new website! It’s still under construction, and your browser will affect how it looks, so if it’s weird, just come back in a few days and look again. A physicist friend says that it’s only missing the scent of jasmine. Please imagine that for yourself as you admire it, to get […]

  Yesterday after church we went to the local botanical gardens. They haven’t been there very long, but they are well worth a visit. The day also featured Wii and ice cream. We’ve had an ongoing discussion this weekend about preferred sensory modalities. I’m not sure where this conversation began. It could have been when […]

#2 daughter and I went to the mall yesterday. A little background may be required. First, I needed to buy something for job interviews and client visits, not to mention the possible workshops. I was thinking of it in terms of the fact that I had gained weight this spring, but my daughter informed me […]

So yesterday I finished my school visits, responded to The Computer Guy’s excitement over the initial response to my publicity with as much modesty as I could arrange (his web site was “exploding,” he said, and we’ve had requests for information from towns over 100 miles away; my modesty involved not saying “Umm, yeah, have […]
