If I believed in a higher power, I'd say someone up there loves him :P Talk about a close call.

Something I just did is making me a tad apprehensive. But I can't say what. Not yet. Might turn out to be nothiing Might not. I think I'm glad I did it. Should this be in the post whore section?

I was laid off from my job today. Normally, I guess something like this should go under "What's upsetting you today?" but honestly, I'm not that upset. Maybe more than a tad apprehensive about finding another job before bill-paying funds run out, but otherwise...not feeling too terrible.

It was a life-sucking job with a long commute, so I think at the moment I'm better off. Now I'll have time and energy to find something else...hopefully better.

And you guys will probably get sick of me, because I'll be posting way more frequently now instead of once every couple of months. I may even get a moment to mail my Cellar SS gift in time for Xmas this year.

Oh yes, took care of that as soon as I got home! I thought I'd have to find an unemployment office, but my man MB let me know I could do everything online. Resume updating is tomorrow...

Thanks very much, UT. I'm not much of a salesperson, but if you happen to hear about anything graphic design-related, please send it my way.

so sorry to hear this blue... you're right about both points. a life sucking job is barely better than none, and a long commute is life sucking, but you get to pa for the privilege.

You're on the way to Better now. I hope your journey is brief and uneventful.

Glad to hear it's not a devastating turn of events, blue. Hope it came just in time for your dream job to waltz across your desk.

Very good Bluecuracao,I hope you find your next Job that you are looking for,I think the unemployment office will grant you an extention after a year so you'll be taken care of for a while at least. Still I wish you the very best.
