news flash...

Arrived back in the office on Monday morning at 7:30 to discover that there had been a re-org while I was away, and that three of my close friends were let go. At 8:00, I discovered that I, too, had been re-orged out of a job. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.

Why this is bad news: no one likes looking for a job. Mortgages like to be paid. I'll miss my TMo pals.

Why this is good news: I had been ready to leave for a few months, but couldn't make the leap on my own. I'm excited at the prospect of finding something new. I will be able to FINALLY arrange to have that treadmill moved into my basement! Oh, and it's the early days of the 2010 World Cup.

In other news -- we had a great time in Paris, even if I haven't yet blogged about it. My only little regrets are that we didn't do a couple of things.... about which it occurred to me afterwards that they would be a fantastic Paris triathlon!

1. A swim in the Josephine Baker pool on the Seine.
2. A bike ride in a "velib" bike.
3. A run along the Seine.

So, perhaps, next time...
