Seven Months Later
and still unemployed.
Thursday June 06, 2002
on getting laid off.
So the employer's decided to lay me off at the end of the month. Let's take a small trip in the time machine... Setting destination for one week ago, in the boss' office.
boo: So, I'm going to be buying a house next week. You wouldn't know of any reasons why I shouldn't, do you? No impending firings or other actions, say?
boss: No, absolutely not.
boo: So, if I close on the house, would that make your conscience twitch at all?
boss: Nope. Enjoy.
Theoretically, if I can find another position within the company, I can stay, but there's less than 20 jobs in my state right now, and half of them are sales exec jobs...
If you know of any employment opportunities in Colorado, let me know.

Woo Hoo 2 : Electric Boogaloo
I bought a house! I've never been so happily terrified in all my life!
Now, if I can only figure out why my wife ripped out the kitchen carpet before we had anything moved in, or any idea on what would be replacing the carpet in there. I have no idea about what flooring will be taking its place, and neither does she, apparently. She called last night to get some quotes, and most contractors/ shops are scheduled into early September... but still
I have a house! woo hoo!

Furniture and cats
The cats are trying to lick and eat the finish off our new table as I sit here programming. I've got plans to go get a small squirt bottle from K-Mart soon...

I just bought a brand new kitchen table and 2 chairs to go with it. No more eating at the couch! woo hoo!
While we were at the store
, I also picked up a big CD rack. Now all my CDs have real and proper homes, rather than being stored in a trunk.
And, as I suppose is inevitable, they cry out to be cataloged and ripped. While this may be geeky enough for some, I envision this goldbergian (or, if you're british, gormenghastian) contraption made of legos and a barcode scanned that would sort them for me by looking up UPC codes. This device looks vaguely like a library robot in my mind... I have yet to requistion funds from my wife for initial development.

you've got use!
I changed my use profile -- I've listed the pager's e-mail address & enabled messaging. let's see what happens.
About what you'd expect, actually. But it works well.
