Last night I dreamed that my plants needed watering and when I woke this morning, sure, they could have used a drink though the situation was hardly dire.  If I was a bigger flake than I am, I would assume that my plants were communicated with me while I slept.


One of the hallmarks of my former job is that I spent each work day, all day, interacting with people either via email, phone or face to face contact.  So it's odd to go from that to suddenly not really interacting with anyone.  I find myself constantly checking facebook and sites where I may have left a comment, anticipating any response or follow up.  I suspect I will get over this soon.

Now It's Time To Say Good Night

Good night, twice daily commute on a crowded subway train.
Good night, phone system that never really worked.
Good night, working below my abilities and far from my interests.
Good night, wondering if I'm going be laid off.
Good night, job.

This was my facebook posting from this morning. It seemed like the best way to let people know what had happened.

Irony Alert

Yesterday, half an hour after posting some images that had collected on the desktop of my computer at work, I was laid off due to downsizing.  

At the moment, I feel like a prisoner who doesn't know what to do with his freedom after being sprung from jail (no disrespect to my former employers intended).

Some Things From My Computer Desktop At Work

The computer desktop is accurately named, given its ability to collect all sorts of detritus you can't be bothered to properly file, just like the actual top of a desk.

Below are some images I've liked and saved to the desktop of my computer at work.  A couple are photos I've taken.  I have little memory as to where the others are from.
