Freedom, sweet freedom

I have given my notice. I am aiming for a start date at my new job of September 24th, which will leave me time to spend with my family and then with scarlettina when they visit in mid-September. My last day in the office should be the 19th, which, in my mind, will be lunch and then taking my crap home with me.

This is the song that's playing in my mind, David Bowie's "Fill Your Heart:"

"Free .... yeah ... The writing's on the wall!
"Free .... yeah! And you can know it all
"If you choose. Just remember, lovers never lose ... 'Cause they are ... free!"

That's really good news :o) It's horrible when a job reaches a point whereby you wake up and dread going in; you've done totally the right thing by leaving xx

All right! Good that you got out of there.
Do you know that "Fill Your Heart" is not an old song, though it sounds like one, it was actually written in 1966 by Biff Rose and Paul Williams, and it was written for Tiny Tim?

It sounds like a song from about 1968, which is how old the version I know is! I'm not surprised it was a Tiny Tim song, but now I'd really like to get a copy of it.

You and me both .. I mean I know Tiny's album is on CD, and the only copy I have is a beat up LP copy ..

Hurrah! Freedom, plus time for resting up and play too? That's the best.

Thank goodness your tailbone is feeling better (I read both posts today), and I'm really excited about the upcoming trip.

Did you recieve my email about "places in London?" We picked up a Let's Go London (on a budget) over the weekend... here, I'll just do my weekend recap and fill you in.

Cute icon, btw! Oh, and welcome to the liberated world. :D

I did, though we should talk about it. I like the places you want to see. You want to do a Ripper Tour Sunday night?

About time!
Well, if you remember that salary survey from a few years ago, it was QA where women actually MADE MORE than men, so it looks to me like we do learn to deliver the message more palatably - or actually complain enough to be more effective than the dudes!
