October is here

Well a few days late for that but things will be changing soon for the annual Tikiranch Hallows Halloween posts. I would have been ready on the 1st but wouldn't you know that crapped up economy caught up with me and I was layed off last tuesday. It was good while it lasted for the last 18 months. No notice or warning just a call to the big bosses office and a blah blah blah this and how things are slow that, last paycheck,3 days vacation check ( Oh and Randy if I give you the check please don't cash them until friday OK?) WHAT???? I thought you make me work 6 hours till you say Bye Bye and then don't cash the check? The company was on the fast track to failure and the owner is a multi millionaire so he has no interest in making it work as far as I could tell the last few months. I figured that out when places I ordered from were putting my orders on hold till some $$ came thru. Oh well I was happy I had worked out some part time gig at my former job that I left to take the job I just lost. I hope it turns into a full time position soon. The new shift I am on is 6:00 p.m. - 2:00 am which will give me time during the day to hit up some sales and shops, now I just need to figure out when to sleep....Still looking for other job options if this one does not work out in the Orange County area if anyone hears anything in the Graphic arts,printing mac operator field.

Thanks for letting me vent back to more serious stuff soon.

I'm sorry to hear about your job. You're a talented guy so I'm sure something will come your way. Keeping my fingers crossed that it will be very soon.

I am very sorry about the layoff... it's happened to me more than a few times (the wonderful world of animation isn't so wonderful sometimes!). Best of luck to you, something will come along (gotta think positive)!
