Sigh... and in other news

I lost my job yesterday. Sadly when the economy is bad, people don't travel to foreign countries. It's not as if I didn't see that one coming -- in fact my life has been pretty much obsessed with watching economic news since January. Still it's never a good feeling.

The sad thing is I really loved my job and perhaps saddest of all, I completely understand what happened, why it happened to me and quite a few other people at the company too. It doesn't exactly make it easier to take. So amidst job-searching, I will be around if anybody wants to get together and cheer me up.

Counting Down the Days

It's Sunday -- glorious Sunday, and such a perfect day to hang out around the house, read, be lazy and watch girly movies on television. So right now I'm watching the Family Channel, when what's this -- starting tonight Countdown to the Countdown of 25 nights of Christmas??? Why don't they just call it the 40 nights of Christmas? Wouldn't that make sense? And I really don't get how the Notebook is a Christmas movie.

Isn't this a sad attempt at a blog from someone who hasn't blogged in a really long time?

Well, I'll add a more bloggy detail for you all. Rob saw Jon Stewart at his coffeehouse yesterday. Apparently, and this is a quote from Rob's co-workers, "All the big stars that come to Buffalo stay at the Hampton Inn next to the Spot. You know the big stars like Dave Chappelle and Vince Gallo." Yup, that's right, the really big stars. Rob came home from work and told me all about Jon Stewart and how he got a Mike Sandwich with no bacon. Yeah, Rob's not a stalker or anything.
