[Random] It's a Small World After All...

Called Pagliacci to order pizza. 'cause I'm lazy and sore and didn't want to go to the store. Phone is answered, voice sounds vaguely familiar. Usual spiel, get phone number, look up address... *pause*

"Rachel Blackman?"
"Yes."
"The same Rachel Blackman who used to work at Quicksilver?"
"...yes?"
"It's Dean!"
"...holy crap!"

Dean, for reference, was actually the one who got me in at Quicksilver on the Silversmiths team. He and I worked as pair-programming partners (Silversmiths used Extreme Programming) for much of the first few months I was there. Anyway, after Quicksilver went blooie and all the 'smiths went our separate directions, the company Dean was at went blooie as well. Hence why a highly-qualified engineer was working pizza phone orders.

In an amusing twist of fate, I'd just gotten called by two recruiters in the past few days, both with positions that would work for Dean. Suffice it to say, I've forwarded the info on. Happy holidays! :)
