If you hadn't seen a few random locked entries, you may not know that I'm leaving my job soon. I'm getting laid off, but it's actually a very good thing for me. I was unhappy in that job and starting to get antsy about finding something new to do. And then there was the whole thing where most of the SF office quit and I was left in the boondocks with no hope for advancement. So the best possible thing happened: my job got "uncreated" and I'm getting a several month layoff package. Woot!

This coming Friday is Lastday (I've only been at that job for 2 years, it just feels like 30). If you're in the Castro and want to have a drink with me and a few peeps to celebrate my getting off the corporate wheel, we'll be at the Metro from 9pm onward. Come early to avoid the lush!

Sorry to say I wont be in the area :o(

Wish I was!

I love the icon by the way... wicked

Good to see that the work thing has sorted itself out!!

Well, what's your favorite cocktail? If it's not too gross or girlie I'll have one for you :-)

Thanks re the icon. I made it from an animation I snagged from the NASA Astronomy Pic of the Day site.

Hmmm cocktail...

No idea honestly....
I like them, but I never remember the names of the ones I like. I mostly like fruity ones. Actually one I do like was made up by my friend...

Is Malibu, pineapple juice and cream, shaken...

She called it a cumonyatitskem... lol

Ahhhhh... I wish I was there, instead of here... grr here...

By the way did you get my msg on myspace the other day??

Malibu and pineapple, I think I've had that w/o the cream. Heh.

I doubt I got your message, since I'm not on myspace!

Grrr @ my lack of memory!

Sorry I had you confused with some other cute guy from the states :oP

my apologies!! I'm a dork...

Hmm definitely add the cream, makes for a smoother taste... yummo!!

Yikes, I had no idea! Guess we didn't talk about this, and I don't often check my Friends page while I'm logged in. Congratulations, then!

For what it's worth, I've just set my screen saver on my work computer to a countdown, which I'll have to update daily: 62 61 60 59...

Might not be there that long but just in case, it's good to have a departure ritual.

you should be able to get a coundown timer screensaver that counts down automatically :-)
