Happy nekkid wombat dance of JOY!

Well, the chickens have roosted now, and I'm busy counting them. I just got a phone call from the Really Good Company (my first choice), and it turns out that the Landed Immigrant process is long enough that they're going to bring me in as a contractor for the eighteen to twenty-four months that it'll take, and then convert me to a direct employee at that point. By that time, I'll certainly have made enough of a splash to justify a good deal more than the low figure for a permanent rate that I was first quoted, so the numbers there are going to work out, and I'm planning to accept the offer.

YAY! Just in time, too -- next week is my last of unemployment. I'll continue the interview process with the remaining U.S. companies that I have leads active with, as a hedge against Immigration Canada throwing up some red flag that makes the whole deal fall apart, but all in all, I think that our long nightmare is over.

So, bcholmes (and all my other friends in T.O.), it looks like we'll be seeing quite a bit more of each other after all. Thank you so much for the job lead!

Now, to find a place to live....

The punch line: what sealed the deal was a conversation that the owner and I had about boat building.

I'm still very psyched about the October Project playing the Lilac Festival, and we'll definitely ferry back for it... and the house probably won't have sold by then. Still interested in coming up?

Woohoo! Congrats! Yet more nifty people in my area, which may help in my conspiracy to lure even more people up here. *grin*
