Unsettled feelings [Nov. 7th, 2001|12:58 pm]
Peter Sheil
I'm feeling quite unsettled at the moment. The company I work for is having 350 redundancies - between 6 and 15 in the area I work in. I get to hear if I am still employed on Thursday :( I just can't concentrate on anything at the moment, and any plans for future work must all be provisional. There is a new benefit package I am supposed to be selecting options from, but what is the point if I may not be there for it?

The week over in the USA was good, although "interesting" (as in the Chinese curse "May you live in interesting times"). I've never been threatened at a front door before, and the Police were very reassuring when they came. I'm also not aware of having been cursed before - good thing we "reflected" it back to the sender :)

I also took part in my first ritual - an interesting and moving experience - although far less organised than I was expecting :) I'm not sure if that is Wiccan or just the group that were there :))

Anyway I guess I'll just sit here and stress 'till tomorrow :( and finish a report on upgrading some servers. I just wish I knew what was going to happen.

I would have to say it was the group that was here that made it less organized (see.. I spelled it American too hehe).. between Tim's comments, Rikki doing her thing, Kim feeling sick and her friend just sitting there the whole time it didn't quite go as planned.
As far as your work goes boy can I sympothize there!! They left us hanging for about a month before laying me off.. then I had this "feeling" and decided to get as much work done as I could cause I was thinking something was going to happen.. and so now I sit here without a job.. you, however, should be able to get something else pretty fast considering what you do.. *IF* anything happens.. try to think positive k?
As far as being threatened at the front door goes.. I want to appoligize once again for all the crap that happened.. I guess I should have just had him arrested that night instead of being nice. sorry

Interesting times indeed! Had to laugh at that part of this post. I'd say I wish I'da been there to see that but hey - I'm not especially interested in being cursed.

Peter I hope all turns out well with your job - try not to stress too badly. Yes I know that's easy for me to say but try. Fill me in whatever happens.

See ya dude ....

Well now I know there was news! Very glad to hear it too.

Now I hope you don't stress too badly over uhm ... what's his name? Well I have a few that come to mind but I'm too much of a gentleman to use them.


Seriously ... that man is sick. It amazes me the things he's done and continues to do. Reading what you supposedly wrote, I couldn't help but think and say over and over again, "How stupid is he?" I saw at least 15 keys in that "email" from "pete" that proved it wasn't from you. Of course you would never say the things said in that piece but there were simple clues that stood out like sore thumbs to me.

So anyway enough of talking about that uhm ... biting my tongue here ... enough of him.

Hope all continues to go well for you!
