I can’t believe that its already November. I got my first Christmas party invite. My best guy is having his annual party in a few weeks time. I’m looking forward to it. I haven’t seen the boy in ages. We’ve both been so busy. Him especially since he got a promotion. He offered me a job, but I turned him down. It wasn’t enough money and I wasn’t willing to commute downtown again for less cash. It would have been fun to work with him again, but it wasn’t meant to be this time around.
Speaking of jobs, work has been super tense lately. Over the past few weeks there have been a number of layoffs and reduction of hours for a number of employees. I feel bad, but I’m not worried about my job. Its not that I think I’m indispensable, I’m just not worried about it. My co-worker is pretty worried. He was telling me how badly the company is doing, which I knew already, but he knows it best because he’s the analyst. It will be interesting to see what happens in the next month.
I had a feel old moment today. One of the girls in marketing came over and we got into a conversation about the weekend. She mentioned she was going to a party at Queen’s university – she wanted to have fun and hook-up with some future doctors and lawyers, which Queen’s is filled with. I laughed and told her to pick me up one, then remembered that most of these guys were about 10 – 15 years younger than me. She was like “oh, come on its fine, I’ll find you a lawyer!!”. I laughed…of course we were just joking, but it made me feel old thinking how young this party crowd would be. I am certainly way past the partying age, I did my damage way back when, so for a few seconds I had my feeling old moment, but honestly I’m quite happy to be beyond all the body slamming, head banging, drinking, dancing till dawn and bad pick-up lines of my younger years.
And, honestly, who would want to see me head bang anyone, right? 😀
