Lots going on...whew!

Yeah yeah...once again I have neglected my Blog. I suck!

But alot has happened in the past few weeks:

1. I resigned from my job
2.I had my 35th birthday
3. I bought a MAC!!!!!!

About the job - um, yeah, lots of people are saying "what? are you crazy, don't you know there's no jobs out there? It's dog eat dog."

Well I had had enough with a terrible boss and just felt that i couldn't make him anymore money. It was simple, it was easy and it felt good to hand a neatly worded resignation letter and watch him flip and flop like a boated fish. "but, can't leave...oh well I have someone to replace you anyway" ...jerk

Also I got a better job right away with very little effort. A job that was actually created especially for me and one where they seem to genuinely want me there.

Anyway it's all more short notice work travel, no more short notice working til 3am and then getting up at 7 for another 8 hour shift. No more being taken for granted.

The stress is lifted and I feel good. Monday I start a new job.

Birthday stuff? not much happens when you turn 35 except that you get older. Pamer's Wife and I met up with some friends for sushi and beer and good conversation. It was fun. Pamer's wife is also taking me to see the movie '300' on Friday so I am as giddy as a school boy.

Now the wasn't such a hard decision. I needed a new laptop and was pretty much set on a PC. Then all this stuff comes out about how much trouble people are having with the new Vista operating system.

So, since I used MACs at work I went out and picked out a nice black one, they delivere din two days and all is well. It's cool...oh and if anyone has some cool Mac programs, let me know.

That's it for now. John Stewart is on now...apparently we change our clocks back this weekend?!? 3 weeks earlier than normal. Make sure your computer clocks are changed or else it will be "Total A-clock-alypse!!!!"

be cool y'all

Congrats on the job transition. I'm looking forward to doing that myself in the next 6 months. Only my leave will be marked by honking my horn, screaming out the window, and flicking them off on my way out the parking lot.

OK, maybe not. But a girl can dream.

Happy Birfday!!

Tink: I wish i would have done that. Honestly that 2 week notice shit is terrible. It's the worst two weeks you will ever spend working.

Spenser: cool thanks for all info. While I've got you here, do you know of any DVD ripping software? There seems to be ton for PC's but not so much for MAC. Thanks again
