My little boy doesn't sound quite so much like a little boy anymore but
I had to hear him on the phone to notice.

All three members of the work group I joined four years ago are gone
now. Andy and Darren quit some time ago, but Paul was laid off on
Friday. 30 years here and now he's gone. I wonder how many people
really believe it when we were told there would be no lay offs.

Finished The Thirteenth House by Sharon Shinn last night. I
can't remember another story that had quite so much to do with adultery.
Using her previous books as a guide, I did not expect it. But, gosh
darn it! She's left several things mysterious, even from the first

Back in 92' UOP laid off 3/4 of their staff. One teacher had half a semester to go before getting her retirement.

Lay offs suck!
