Good News, Everyone!

Hi ho. My news is this: Today I accepted a new job. Of course, it's bittersweet. The job I'm leaving is the first one I had in Seattle. I've worked there nearly 2 1/2 years, and in that time I've made some good friends and learned some important lessons. But hey, it's time. Goodbye, office with a window. Goodbye, door. Goodbye, bagel Friday.

My last day is two weeks from today.

In bizarre and related news, it looks like Jer is starting a new position at his company with more responsibility. We were both in interviews at the exact same time and day earlier in the week. What are the odds?

Congrats on the new job -- hopefully all will go smoothly in the transition!

Thanks, danf and kermitfan! After watching all the others give notice before me, it sort of feels like I've been waiting in line to ride the rollercoaster and now it's finally my turn. Better or worse, it's time to strap in, have fun, and try not to hurl. Whee!

YAHOOOOO!!!! Congrats! Sorry for the late reply. I was way too busy skiing my arse off! Can't wait to toast your departure.

It sounds like a good thing so congratulations.

At least the company didn't have to close the office in order to get rid of you tis time. Hehe.

Congrats, and here's to not hurling--that tends to make a bad impression on the first day at the new job.
