Lots of stuff to write about, as usual...

I haven't got a ton of time, so I'll try to briefly touch on a number of important things that have been on my mind lately.  This won't be everything, but it'll have to do for now.  First, the LiveJournal party I'm throwing is still on for this Saturday.  That's right... it'll take place on May 3rd at 4:00pm, on the top floor of the Metreon.  To get up there, take an elevator from the ground floor (near the main entrance, at the corner of Fourth and Mission) and hit the 4 button.  That will take you up to the top floor, where there's a balcony.  This floor is above the two floors that have arcade machines on them.  We'll meet outside at the metal tables, or inside if the weather is bad.  I will provide free drinks, and possibly food.

The rest of this post will just be some personal stuff.  For those of you who haven't heard, I just recently got laid off at UPNetworks.  That was my full time job, and well... frankly, it sucked in a number of ways that I didn't elaborate much on.  Working there had its advantages, but I'll save this topic for another post.  I really do have a lot to say about the place, though.  I'm happy I got laid off from there though, as I was about to quit.  Also, my co-workers (but not my boss) all knew I was expecting to get canned... and I was relieved that it happened when I expected it to, so that I didn't have to quit.  Now I can collect unemployment while I relax and look for a better job.  I have a number of leads already, and it looks like it'll be as easy as it's always been to land something decent... which is quite a surprise, considering today's economy.  I guess I'll just have to see how it works out.

On one final note, I'd like to ask Justin's ProfileJustin (Kudo/Squigger) what his problem is with me.  He posted that he wanted to hit me in his LiveJournal the other day, and it really offended me... as I thought we were friends, we hang out all the time since we've known eachother for like 10 years, and I don't even know what I did to deserve it.  It really pissed me off, too.  ><  If anyone knows what the hell he's bitching about, please feel free to enlighten me.  I'll write more when I have more time.  I look forward to seeing all of you soon... Saturday's turnout is expected to be even larger than my last LiveJournal party.  I can't wait to see you all again... don't forget to reply to this post if you're local, and you can or can't make it!  Post questions here please, too!  :)

P.S.  By the way... happy belated birthday, Rene's ProfileRene!  I wish I had known it was your birthday the day I saw you at the Metreon.  Happy belated birthday to azhp, kerensa, maltesetony, and akkhima (today!) as well... and my apologies for the rest of you I've recently missed.  Unfortunately, I can rarely get online these days for personal stuff (as usual)... and I haven't had time to wish many of you well lately.  I'm sorry...
