Being under-employed

It's only been a few days since I was fired "encouraged to pursue other opportunities" and I'm already running out of money. How does that happen so fast? I'm not spending irresponsibly or anything. In fact, aside from the occasional (ruinously expensive, I'll admit) caramel-white-chocolate-double latte, I'm really very frugal. Time to rewrite the ol' resume AGAIN. Ah, job hunting. One of life's sweet little pleasures.

While I work on that, do tell: what's your favourite euphemism for being right-sized/optimized/streamlined?

Day... oh forget it. I don't even know what day it is anymore.

No video today. Or for the foreseeable future, as I have lost access to my webcam. You see, that meeting with my boss I was looking forward to? Turns out it wasn't a raise I was getting, it was a pink slip. That was just the beginning of what turned out to be a truly HORRIBLE day. The less said about it the better. Really.

And since then, things have gotten just a little bit weird in my life. More on this later, but in the meantime, I'm going to spend a little more time on Facebook (I have oodles of free time at the moment).

On the bright side: Trevor? Kicked him to the curb. Feeling pretty good about it, too.

Day 17 - Things are looking up!

Today is a good day!
