I am a little “underemployed” now. Tough economic times led to 8 of us not having chairs when the (musical chairs) music stopped today. I am the only one from engineering let go. I have been expecting it for a long time. We have been preparing for it. We’ll be moving in with you when you. Ok, we are not really moving in with you.
Aside from that it was a pretty good day. (kind of like, “Aside from that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the play?”)
I am OK. I will miss the Fox family and their families that I know. There are some nice people there. I don’t take it personally. My day was a little screwed up, but it happens. It’s not the worst thing to happen to me – no one died today. It’s always a good day for me when no one from my family dies. That’s my daily measurement for a good day. I plan to goof off a little and then pick away at the things on my long “to do“ list. We might get in a vacation before Chris has school start up again.
That’s the news for today. I have to twitter Michael Jackson now. I have a message for him from Walter Cronkite. I hear that they are meeting up this week to sing some tunes together.
