Well, my month's shot. Hell, probably my whole year. At 7 PM tonight, my boss showed up at the store I was working at to tell me the company was letting me go, after nearly 5 years with them. So, my mood, which already wasn't the best this close to my birthday, just got a lot worse. I have no idea what I'm going to do right now, but I know I won't be my usual semi-jovial self for the foreseeable future. My plans to attend Dragon*Con 2004 have had to be cancelled. Even if I manage to get another job between now and then, there's no way I'd be able to get the vacation time that soon after starting. So, that's about how my day went. If you're thinking your day was crap, just remember, it could always be worse. If you have a job to go to tomorrow, you're one step ahead of me right now. Later guys and gals.
