Today, something is going to hit it. I have it on good authority that it will not be me. Stay tuned for further updates.
UPDATE FOR THOSE PEOPLE ACTUALLY READING THIS OUT OF INTEREST IN MY EMPLOYMENT SITUATION*: The thing that everybody knew was going to happen, happened, and the upshot is that my employer is shortly to become the employer of many fewer people one of whom (fortunately) (for me, anyway) will be me. So for my part not much is going to change, except for maybe shorter lines in the cafeteria, but for about half of my fellow workers this has been a truly sucky day.
