In thematically-related news, the catalog company in Walnut Creek "decided to pursue another candidate," as they say. So. I also received a call from someone looking for contract work on a food magazine's website, which I'd like to be able find some way to help with just because it sounds fascinating. But I don't know if that'll end up going anywhere.
