You got to love it when they track you down.

Unknown phone number calling on my cell this morning.  "Hi.  We found your resume online.  Are you still job hunting? "

He sounded excited to have found me.  Now I know why.  A major maker of bedding with a huge, heavily computerized sewing plant.  Yes, I can do ALL that.  BTDT.

Plus, it's in NE Georgia.  In a city I've lived in before.  You mean I can have a major lake and mountains in the deal?  Yes, please.

I've been doing the happy feet thing all day.  

Interview Monday.

The world should be afraid.

We need to get the four amigos back together again. Of course the four amigos is more like the 12 amigos now.

(But if the scat goes down you know the four will eat the others. Right after we pick up Deborah)

Nice - good luck with the interview.  If it's meant to be, it will.

Same thing happened to me recently (a former coworker is now a VP at a growing startup and tracked me down) and I'll be flying out to Seattle in a couple weeks for final interviews....fingers crossed!
