Update - I've been lacking recently.
It's quite amazing how much power we give to those people we know.  It's even more amazing how one person can make you so happy for a while and so miserable just a short while later... and blame you for your misery.  It's amazing how your feelings for that person stay the same... in fact it's impossible to change your feelings for someone at your own whim.

I have been dumped in one form or another three times in the space of 12 months... that doesn't do wonders for your ego - of that I can assure you.

Misty called me yesterday.  We chatted for quite a while about this and that - it was very pleasant.  I shall be meeting her next week for drinks if all goes to plan.

I have signed up for a scuba course... I will get a PADI open water certification so a "buddy" and I can go diving up to 40 meters in open water.

I'm having a bit of a birthday bash on the 10th November at my house.  If you know where my house is - you are invited.

I will be 37.  Having just read theferret's recent post about getting old I should be suicidal... but strangely I'm not.

Work is just about as bad as it's ever been.  Talking about work - there was a mass mail out (there is about 10 times a day!) about the dos and don'ts of blogging and how it can loose you your job.  As it is probably not difficult to discover where I work - I am supposed to include a disclaimer in any post about work that goes a bit like this...
The postings on this site are my own and do not represent the positions, strategies or opinions of the company I work for...

Arse covering finished I find it strange that I need to say that after slagging the company off - of course these views are mine! No company is going to think that about itself is it?

The S&P Finance reunion is this Friday.  I hope people turn up - there has been a lack of confirming emails that is making me nervous.

I really should get back to this work... but I find I'd rather gouge my own eyes out with a rusty spoon.

I'd rather they make you type a disclaimer than fire you for slagging off the company.

You can't just change your feelings on a whim. It takes a while for your heart to catch up with your head. *hugs*

I'm willing to bet if I said anything really bad about the firm - rather than the general "my job is crap" type posts they would fire me anyway! :)

I think there's a fundamental flaw in how we are designed... and I'd like a few words with my "maker"! ;)

*hugs* - thanks :)
