For those of you who are not familiar: for the past three years I’ve been working as a contractor at a large video game development house. The company has been laying off a bunch of people, and yesterday they decided that I should be on that list as well. I feel ambivalent about this. The timing was awkward, but I feel like my product is at the point where I can begin licensing it on a larger scale, so this has the potential to be a blessing in disguise. At least, I’m going to try to keep a positive attitude, and try to focus on rounding up new business. Those of you who know me know that I’m the most sardonic human being in this hemisphere, so positivity does not come naturally to me; but middleware is one of those few industries that does well in an economic downturn, and the product we’ve developed is actually better than the competition, so I do have a good chance of actually turning a profit soon.
Obligatory joke: Titles of musicals that will write themselves:
“Bleeding In The Rain”
“Jesus Christ Porno Star”
“Annie Get Your Machete”
“An American In Paris Hilton”
“Blow Me Kate”

Oh nuts. I’m sorry about the getting laid off, but harbor tiny hopes that this means you and Amanda might migrate north again.
