    Default Random Comments/Stream of Consciousness Thread

    Hi Everyone!

    I wanted to create a catch-all thread for people to use to post random questions that may not warrant their own thread, or where one can simply post what is on their mind with regards to collecting/books/etc. It can also be used to alert people when you are going on vacation or taking a business trip (whatever) so that we don't worry about your absence. Well, I'm rambling on here, but I just thought a catch all thread might be useful and/or fun.

    In my mind at the moment:

    I have a big article to write which is due tomorrow and I'm only half done.

    I want Bob to post his new "unique" item

    Now that the traycases are here for LSOE, I wonder how soon I will see my copies in the mail.

    I am working on a potential very cool acquisition that will marry a collectible I already have with another collectible that I did not even know existed until last week (HA! That's all the hint I will give you).
    Captain, Road Prison 36 : What we've got here is... failure to communicate. Some men you just can't reach. So you get what we had here last week, which is the way he wants it... well, he gets it. I don't like it any more than you men.

    Dragline : Nothin'. A handful of nothin'. You stupid mullet head. He beat you with nothin'. Just like today when he kept comin' back at me - with nothin'.
    Luke : Yeah, well, sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand

    I should have it tomorrow. Pics tomorrow or Saturday.

    I'm going through some of my collection for a possible upcoming book on King. I'm not at liberty to say anymore about the book except that I have been approached about using some of my collection for illustrations to accompany the text. I was asked about photos of King. I don't really have any but I did remember this one from the January 15, 1970 issue of The Maine Campus. It is one of my all time favorites.

    Ok, here is a real shocker! I just found out 2 minutes ago that my whole team has been laid off from Credit Suisse. I find out my package in 2 more minutes.

    I'll take any good will anybody wants to send me.

    David - I think you accidentally CC'd me on that email and I was just about to PM you, but now that I see you posted here I will offer my shock and sadness here. Thats terrible. Over seventeen years! Hopefully there may be room for lateral movement somewhere in your company, or at the least that your experience will help you land another job quickly. Good luck my friend!

    Happened at my place of business, in my IT department, last week ( again ). I was spared but not by much. Tough times everywhere.

    Sending nothing but positive thoughts and hopes to you, David. So very sorry.

    It's going to be tough. Not exactly a great environment to find a job as a research analyst. All of Wall Street is laying off thousands of people.

    Times are tough.

    David, that's terrible! Lots of goodmind your way!

    We are getting our bonuses this year (because they were already accrued for) but raises are off the table for the time being. Since I am a) happy to still have a job and b) way overpaid for what little I actually do, I'm keeping my mouth shut and being happy with what I have.

    OMG - I hope they give you a desserving severance and this buys you the time to find Something else equally as good, if not better. I am crossing fingers and toes, tossing some salt over my shoulder, kissing the blarney stone and sending some Irish luck your way! You desserve better!

    My company let 10,000 go on Dec 1st, and I hear that was Round One only. I have 23+ years and sighly heavily on Dec 1st and am now worried again. Then again I totally believe that any layoff may very well be a blessing in disguise! My glass is always half full - I hope your is too!

    Take care my friend!
