That's a shame, Mike. So, will it be this year still that you will come to UK?

Are you and Missy really coming over here at Easter, Kazzzz?

So sorry you're going to miss the family trip, Mike. I know you were really looking forward to it.

Now I have bigger fish to fry. My company is closing March 9th. Luckily I already have interviews lined up.

For those who don't know, I was working as an Information operator. (What you in the United Kingdom call 118. The name of the company is Infonxx and it now controls 118 in the U.K. Allegedly a British company called Quinix may be buying us). A come down from AT&T and the library world, however I needed a job.

I got the job a month after arriving in Tucson. I saw it as an immigrants job, first job in town until Mikey could figure out what to do next. I stayed because my boss is the best boss I have ever had, I like most of the people I work with and I have good benefits.

From my naughty counseling (there is a silly essay in that somewhere) I also realized the place had become a crutch. Many of the people I work with have majo r criminal records. In other words, for the silliness I had, I am not judged.

I have an interview at Citibank on Thursday and may actually have a library possibility that pays well. Timing is everything. At least at Citibank, I would no longer have to work Saturday (Yay). I would be expected to join Elaines Romance Writers Chapter (What good is that, all those women, no flirting LOL)!!

You know what they say? One door closes, another opens.

Not good news Mike but for somebody with your talent and energy, I'm sure something will come up. I don't think it's too positive to regard any paid employment as a crutch. We all need to earn a crust so yes, in that way it could be regarded as a crutch but not one for the ego necessarily. Who needs to be judged all the time anyway, especially by others? It is self judgement that counts in the end.

You know where I am if you need to talk.
