Duckfucking

So, it turns out if you give workers notice of big changes equivalent to or greater than sacking notice, it doesn't count and you can't claim you've been sacked. And I thought Robin was being so great by keeping us in the loop. Fuck. Now I feel more nervous than I already would have about asking Robin and Batman nicely to sack me, since they've obviously gone to pains to not 'accidentally' sack us.

So I'm in a pisser I can only alleviate by working through the mountain of things I need to do. They are getting done and besides one or two social or moving-around type things I'm shutting down shop this weekend to work on a school application. Today I'm working the minimum so as to look into my options more fully. I got some 'interesting' suggestions last night from the totally amoral people I dined with. Lady's roommate had good ones. J*Fish had crap ones.

Anyways. Blah blah blah. Life isn't all assfucks and thorny crowns at the moment. I finished the Goya review and on the same day received a copy of Martin Amis' new novel, House of Meetings, and ordered the upcoming Air CD and - oh yes - the upcoming Harry Connick Jr. CD. I don't know anything about Harry Connick Jr., besides some women thinking he's hot, but the new album seems to be in French and I like that shit. So at least one thing in this world is superb: review copies. Lovely, lovely review copies. Here's the Goya review.

Sorry to hear you're going to have to scheme to get fired now. It all seemed so pretty and simple.

I enjoyed your review. You're such a brilliant and talented girl I'm sure you'll find something that will make you happy. Sometimes getting fired is the best thing that can happen.

Mistress La Spliffe ha detto...

You're such a sweet girl to say all that, Sugar. If I can't get fired I'll quit and everything will be okay. It's just hard to give up the idea of free money once I get it in my head . . .

Sugarplum ha detto...

Free money is great. And you've been paying into it for all these years - you deserve it.

Mistress La Spliffe ha detto...

That's bugging me - jumping through hoops to get back money I paid to support myself through unemployment when I oh-so-want to be unemployed.
