My Widdle Bwain

(no subject)

Chocolate squid snacks. Japanese snacks are a fascinating thing.

llamabitchyo, this is from that show I mentioned. I may have to throw an episode onto a tape for you; I think you'ld get a kick out of it. Or be horrified by the chocolate squid snacks. I'm not sure which.

Dry Run

As I was leaving today, I suddenly remembered that this is the last day I would be in the office for the week. Then I remembered that the deal is supposed to close before I get back. If it turns out that I do get laid off as soon as the deal closes, then today will have been my last day sitting at that desk, working at that cube.

One of my coworkers (who has been through several buy-outs) recommended that I take home anything that I valued. I don't want to be screamingly obvious that I am cleaning out my cube, so some compromises had to be made. Collapse )

I don't seriously expect that I will be laid off come a week from tomorrow. Still, it was a very strange moment walking out of the building today, realizing that it's entirely possible that I will never see my coworkers again. And it was even weirder to realize that for some of them, I would regret that.
