(09:27)EntropicPhantom: How'd that happen? I didn't think there was much of a job market on the moon.
(09:28)SonjaOfTheMoon: There isn't. It's an online thing.
(09:28)EntropicPhantom: Oh. Huh. How'd that happen?
(09:30)SonjaOfTheMoon: Unexpectedly. An old friend contacted me.
(09:31)EntropicPhantom: What's the job?
(09:32)SonjaOfTheMoon: Oh, it's an independant software project related to AI. I don't think I should say much more.
(09:33)EntropicPhantom: Ah, okay.
(09:33)EntropicPhantom: How do you know this person/people?
(09:34)SonjaOfTheMoon: A chance meeting on Stack Overflow a couple years back, actually. I'd helped her with some debugging. I guess she was impressed. :P
(09:34)EntropicPhantom: Well, you're an impressive person.
(09:35)SonjaOfTheMoon: Aww, shucks.
(09:36)SonjaOfTheMoon: It was something of a surprise
and very flattering.
(09:36)EntropicPhantom: ...the offer, or what I said?
(09:37)SonjaOfTheMoon: Alex, please. You say unexpected cute things all the time. :P
(09:37)SonjaOfTheMoon: I meant the offer.
(09:40)SonjaOfTheMoon: I trust them.
(09:41)EntropicPhantom: Did I imply you didn't?
(09:42)SonjaOfTheMoon: Well, they did contact me out of the blue. It'd be a sensible concern...
(09:42)SonjaOfTheMoon: But I trust them.
(09:43)EntropicPhantom: Erm. Why?
(09:43)EntropicPhantom: I mean, not that I doubt you, but there's enough horror stories about people getting screwed over...
(09:43)EntropicPhantom: Not getting paid, or saddled with more responsibility than they'd agreed, or... general shadiness...
(09:48)SonjaOfTheMoon: Look, I've thought through this, and I've made up my mind. I'm not likely to get an opportunity like this again.
(09:51)EntropicPhantom: This was just earlier today, right?
(09:52)SonjaOfTheMoon: Yes. Please don't argue with me.
(09:54)EntropicPhantom: Just promise me that you'll be careful, okay?
(09:54)SonjaOfTheMoon: Of course, mom.
(09:55)EntropicPhantom: Hey, woah. If I'm your mom, that'd make you, what, my son? Sonjus~
(09:56)SonjaOfTheMoon: Oh, gods.
(09:56)SonjaOfTheMoon: I'm pretty sure that's not how Russian works, and you just reminded me of my cringey teenage years.
(09:56)SonjaOfTheMoon: I had a rule 63 blog. It no longer exists. That's all you get to know.
(09:57)SonjaOfTheMoon: No seriously, don't ask. It was bad.
(09:57)SonjaOfTheMoon: Worse than that. It was baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad.
(09:58)SonjaOfTheMoon: And now I want brainbleach.
(09:59)EntropicPhantom: Wow, I am learning so much about you today!
(09:59)SonjaOfTheMoon: This conversation never happened.
