2004-03-25 : Things just got weird, didn’t they ?
Late March must be a time of change.
On Monday we had a guy leave the company to go on to bigger and better things. I know that people come & go all the time, but I guess when someone was part of the initial furniture in an 8 person outfit, the loss of one is more obvious. Even more so when 2 of the others are on leave.
Today, Ben put in his resignation as well, effective in 2 weeks. It's going to be WEIRD around here without him. In almost every job I've had in the IT biz there's been at least one person who's a total legend and transcends “workmate” status – Stu the Silent Assassin, Wild Crazy Mad Dog Nicolitsi, an individual from Mindvision who I shant name as his ego needs no further stoking, and now Ben Williams makes his place among these elite few.
And the other weird thing is that this morning my brother left to live in the UK ! If you've been reading this page for a while and are surprised at my rather abrupt mention of this fact, don't worry – the rest of us were fairly surprised by his abrupt decision to go ! I didn't make it to the airport this morning (I get up at 5am for Nobody, especially not twice in the same week), however I did make it to the Exeter last night for farewell drinks with Tim, Chelsea, and Tim's clan. If you're reading this man, hope ya have an awesome time over there !
As I mentioned before, Steve's going over on Monday to work for The Great Satan (aka the Disney Corporation) on a floating barge loaded with rich Americans, so there go my midweek Bundy adventures (and that's probably just as well on further consideration).
And the final change I can think of today is my moving back to Mum & Dad's place this weekend. Well, that's the theory, anyway. It might not come off as smoothly as that, but we'll see what happens.
