I got my final check today from the employer formerly known as Sneezy; it took at least a month longer than it should have, but I'm just grateful to accept my pittance and move on.
I also found out that that publishing company I applied for ages ago actually DID put me on their freelancers list. I never heard from them after turning in my editing test, so I assumed I had not gotten the job—silence is the new no—but apparently they just neglected to tell me (which really doesn't bode all that well for our future together, actually). I still haven't seen any work from them, but I guess they can be the new Sneezy anyway. It's nice to have all seven dwarf slots neatly filled.
