no more Census (for now, at least)

Official word came down from on high today -- this phase of Census work, which was supposed to carry us through to the end of May, is done. We had to turn in our HHCs and ID badges (my crew leader was kind enough to swing by and pick mine up in deference to my illness). Apparently we were too darned efficient for our own good, and everything got done faster than expected -- even with regularly malfunctioning HHCs. *wry grin*

I suspect that the crappy economy meant that there were a lot more applicants than expected with more time on their hands than expected, and the attrition rate was also lower because people were really motivated to hang onto this (or indeed any) job.

The good news is that, when the next phase cranks up, my name will be in the pool as someone with experience....
