First off, a belated welcome to the one and only Starslayer (pictured here on the left, tasty alcoholic beverage in hand) who will be gracing our site with his sometimes humorous, sometimes serious, but always thought provoking writing stylings. I had meant to introduce him prior to his arrival here, but what can I say, I’m useless like that. It only took me what, six months to actually get him an account here at LtB after he expressed an interest in contributing.
Secondly, my own personal career situation could be drastically changing over the upcoming weeks, possibly as early as next week. I’m tired of watching idiotic management types make decisions about things that they don’t understand, and making the lives of those of us who have to actually do the work hell in the process. No more. I guess it boils down to “I’m tired of working for morons!”, so it’s time to make a change to something better. If anyone knows of someone who is in dire need of some mad network-fu skills, let me know. In the meantime I’ve got a plan of my own I’m going to be working towards full steam… something that’s been simmering quietly in the background for what, 5 years now, but that I’ve been too gun shy to really put in motion. What can I say.. Idiot decision-making by others can be a great motivator to light a fire under one’s ass. Nothing ventured, nothing gained, right?
Also, I’m informed that invitations for the (soon to be) world renowned 4th of July extravaganza at “Casa del hombre gordo y del polluelo flaco” have gone out. Yes, we’re having another one. Yes, the pool shall be ready (should be up this weekend if everything stays according to plan). Yes, there will be food, booze, music, and fun.
