I know I'm gonna regret this...

But I just have to post about how happy I am in my new job. What a world of difference.

My old job (I should say old boss) got one last dig in. Bastard. And it hurts. But you know what? It doesn't flippin' matter. They didn't make me pay them back for the move to Orlando that I never wanted to make. I don't have to deal with them at all any more. I miss some of the people - but over all - I leave every morning with a smile on my face. I'm GLAD to be going to work.

I already feel more a part of the team I work with than I did after a year and a half there. It rocks.

Oh - and I gotta tell you about Engineer B. He is cool. He played high school football against Mike Alstott (of TB Bucs fame) and we share a love of sports. But we also have something else in common.

He's a bartender on the weekends. Oh Yeah. Today we were talking appletinis. Yummy. He told me to really make them special slice up a granny smith apple, stick a toothpick through it and use it to garnish the drink. I told him that was fine for the first one - after that, unless you have them made up ahead of time, forget it. You'll never keep up. ;-)

But anyway - I made the right choice. I know I did.

The other? They can kiss my ass.....

Just don't slash & burn until you have ALL your

taxes for 2005 from the OLD company!

Good advice. But I never burn bridges. Ever. Soon as you're the loser.

It's enough that I'm happy and starting to make money again. I know most of them there are not. That's enough for me.

Make sure to invite the "bartender" to your next party! (Hey, it couldn't hurt to have another bartender in the family...)

You know I have to weigh in on this.

I'm very happy you are happy at your new job.

And - while I don't expect you to burn bridges - I am still hoping you will do what's necessary and write a letter.
