I lost my job today! Well, eventually. They're keeping us on through the end of the year, then letting us go with severance and our yearly bonuses. If we leave before then, we get to keep the severance, though I'm not sure about the bonus. On the one hand, this is okay, since I was planning to leave anyhow, I make more money this way, and I can actually get a recommendation from my boss. On the other hand, being laid off kind of sucks, and I'd have liked to have left on my own schedule. Oh well. Here we are.
It turns out that the Washington Redskins have correlated with every presidential election since their inception in 1936. I hope they keep their streak, though it's not looking so hot at the moment. Sigh.
