Stress level just tripled.

Yep! I knew this was coming so I have been feeding my resume out over the last few months. But I want to see what falls over the next few weeks before making any move. Still..crap!

Good on you for preparing for it. Any chance of a sweet severance or golden parachute?

Unfortunately, no. I am not far enough up the food chain for them to care. But I do plan to see what they put on the table. It may be a worthwhile offer, it may be a position in the farthest outpost in rural Japan with the assumption that I will quit, which I would. I am in wait and see mode.

Yep...exactly. But I am not panicking yet. Change is good...right?

sorry to hear that. really sorry

Sorry Alter, that's not good news. Best of luck to you.

In my world, still no power. And it is pretty freaking cold at night. Open-hearth fireplaces are worthless, btw, if anyone was wondering. I didn't shower or anything, what with no hot water... I guess I could have heated some water on the gas stove and taken a sponge-bath in the 52-degree morning, but F that. Then, adding insult to injury, a shoelace broke on the beater shoes i was putting on, and I didn't feel like hunting down something better, so Ipulled on some old white tennis sneakers with the jeans I am wearing today and I look like I'm dressed as Jerry Seinfeld for Halloween.

AND this fucking terminal lag is going to be the end of me.

My rule is 90 minutes.

Alter, sorry to hear this, brah. Hoping for the best for ya.

Douglas, is your Scottish blood so weakened you can't take a cold shower? frown.gif
post #38050 of 69996
No, my Scottish blood figured a day without a shower wouldn't stink so much as to justify the cost of the water.

Man, that Jerry Seinfeld business is insult to injury. FWIW, cold showers are blessings from heaven on running days. Even 52- degree ones.

Okay, this works for me.

We lost power at our office for 30 minutes, just long enough for me to have to force the servers down and then deal with all the issues on everyone coming back up at the same time. feh.
