After-layoff afterlife: I’m doing all right. I’m thankful for everyone who checked in on me and wished me well. I went out to lunch yesterday with some of the fellow folks (steak sandwich, French fries and a side o’ sad). After bidding the buds adieu, I went home, hugged Ankita two times hard and we went down to Jack London Square for magazines and coffee. After that: barbecue at Everett & Jones, a bottle of Guinness stout and a walk back home to our place.

Today I went in, packed up my cube and deleted most of my personal folders on my ‘puter (though whoever uses it will have to delete about 4 gigs worth of MP3s). Then back over the Bay Bridge to Oakland, and forward to the traditional Updating Of The Resume.
