Workin' on it
Slowly but surely this blog is coming back to life after a month on ice. I spent part of the morning posting new links to the sidebar and fixing a few broken ones. The photo of the month archive has been updated and a scan from Boilerplate: History's Mechanical Marvel [link] will have to do for October's photo since I botched the shot I was hoping to use. I have a few new posts in the works and they should go up sometime later in the week.
In other news, my day job is being outsourced. Can you believe it? I KNOW. Outsourcing is soooooooooooo 1998 but, apparently, the higher-ups at the Mega Corporation That Everyone Loves to Hate where I work don't concern themselves with such matters. My entire division, nationwide, is getting the axe. Some of our daily duties will be tossed onto the already overworked shoulders of other departments, while the rest will be shipped off to the Philippines. Our last day of operation is set for mid-November.
This may mean that I'll have plenty of time for blogging in the somewhat near future. The coming weeks will be a mad-scramble to find another position at the company amidst efforts to rush off college and job applications. For the first time in a very long while I have no idea where I'll be in a year, let alone St. Patrick's Day.
Ok, I have a pretty good idea where I'll be on St. Patrick's Day. Or, at the very least, what I'll be ingesting on St. Patrick's Day.
Hint: it rhymes with "snail."
I hope to keep this blog going, one way or another, through what's sure to be a rocky end to an already boulder-clogged 2009. Thanks for reading.
