LOL

My one son has a shirt with a ruler and a rock on it. The ruler says to the rock, "you rock." The rock says to the ruler, "you rule."

Heh.

Aside from being dead tired, I feel fine. I didn't really drink THAT much, I was just nervous about the shot, but I guess I drank a lot of water too.

Went to breakfast with a co-worker this morning so I got here a little later than normal, and my computer's been giving me headaches all week. Adobe crashed and had to be completely reinstalled this morning. The powers that be just approved a new one for me - I'm excited. This will be my first company laptop that's not someone else's hand-me-down.

Three people got laid off yesterday afternoon.:(

Two more today.

I feel for ANYBODY who gets laid off, and I don't believe that someone's personal circumstances should come into play at all. But I admit that I feel a bit extra when it's a married guy with three kids in parochial school and a mortage. Or the guy with a baby who just bought a house. When you have dependents, I just think it would be more stressful.

ANd both of those guys have wives who make far less than they do -- one I know works only to pay the tuition for the three kids in parochial school. I know, I know, choices. But it sucks.

Unless you are leaving out something major, I don't remember hearing about any stupid decisions. You are entitled to random night out with co-workers/friends. You didn't throw up on the bar or strip in front of your boss.

Hope your day is productive and goes by quickly!

It's very difficult to go through for the people who get laid off and the people who are left.

That stinks :(

Speaking of - how's the job situation, Tonka? You may have mentioned something that I missed, but you have been on my mind.

Nothing major... it just seems like a lot of the nights out turn out kind of weird (like the guy who my friend and I were talking to who walked out on his tab). I need to be a little careful.

Thanks! After the rough start with the computer, I did get a bunch of stuff done. I still have a heap in my inbox but it's almost lunchtime soon... my comfy bed is going to be so tempting, but I plan on getting a lot out of this afternoon too. Being behind on stuff sucks.

sucks. No new job yet. No word on when the hammer drops or what, if any , severance there will be. At least i squeezed some addotional training in. Had a class this week that was scheduled and paid for before the big announcement.

I'm glad your boat is back in action, and all, but I'm hardly stoked about it. Number one, I don't have a boat, number two, it's winter here anyway.

I think I'll blame a few of the retiring partners who don't do anything to get new clients or bring in new work.

If there is anyone on here that sticks with things, it's you. You'll get a job. Probably a good one.

"My husband and I were married last May 11. My new brother-in-law is now engaged, and we are thrilled, although we do not know his fiancée very well. They have picked dates for both their engagement party and their wedding: May 11 this year and next year."

WEll, that's dumb. Because if you got married on May 11, 2012, on a Saturday, then their engagement party will be May 11, 2013, on a Sunday, and their wedding will be on May 11, 2014, on a MOnday. Who freakin' does THAT?
