in the loop of fury

so today was my last day at martin marietta. it was sad. i worked all alone in the office all day. no one did anything special for my last day at all. one guy called to wish me a merry christmas since i probably won't see him again, even if i continue working saturdays.

that same guy stuck a pink slip in my stocking yesterday that said "your[sic] fired." i thought it was funny, but, by the end of the day, it had me down a bit.

anyway, thanks for the outpouring of sympathy and support; being laid off (or released, as it were) is quite depressing.

at least i already have another job line up for next week. (having someone else find a job for you is super-sweet!) unfortunately, it's out in plainfield, it's 10-hour days in a warehouse and is less money. but, it's better than nothing, right? right...

since i won't be working in that filthy quarry anymore, chauncey got a bath today. he is lookin' like so good! he's soundin' good these days too! new speakers, amp and subs--the c & c music factory is complete. (that's charlie (my ipod) and chauncey (my jeep).)

the giftmastm shopping is coming along, but i'm nowhere near finished. i miss the days when i used to plan ahead. le sigh...

i'm frustrated. depressed. something. i can't quite figure it out.

but eggnog milkshakes make me happy, as do muffaletta sandwiches and pickles.

another plant in kokomo is closing for the season, so they relocated their salaried people to other plants and that meant i (as a temp) had to go. my boss tried for weeks to find a way to keep me on somewhere in some capacity, but had no luck.

i don't think i have any pictures of chauncey. i'll get some tomorrow. as for the system, i'll have to look into the specs. it's basically some off-brand system-in-a-box, but damn if it don't sound tight.

i like the idea of having a place i can crash! from what i hear, the farm is kind of falling apart these days and moving down into waipio valley. as much as i love it down there and even though i have land waiting for me there as well, it's just to inaccessible and removed from hilo for what i'm trying to do in hawaii.

oh! and thanks for the postcard! i got it a while back, but don't think i said anything. it really made my day.
