There Ain't No Sanity Clause

More job horrors on the way in '09. I get the word yesterday that the Grim Reaper will be whetting his scythe the first week of the new year. And I will be wearing the robes and wielding the death staff to a friend of mine. As I am discussing this with one of my staff, the prez of our company comes by dressed as Santa with not a care in the fucking world.

Rome burns. Nero fiddles.

As an added bonus, the real Reaper will be paying a visit to the Nomad household soon enough as our beloved cat is on his last days due to cancer. We are hoping he makes it past this weekend (and Princess Nomad's birthday) before we have to put him down.

Merry fucking x-mas.

Come on, Nazz. There must be a Satan Claus. The Lending Corpse & the Auto-da-fe Industry got bail-out gifts from all us poor working schmucks & got huge Xmas boguses, er...I mean bonuses. What's more corporate Amerikkka & Xtian than Xmas, the co-opted birthday of their hero, X.
I might poke fun at Xmas with tongue firmly planted in cheekue, but thank Buddha I'm an ist.
Hope your cat lingers long enough to not taint your daughter's B'day with bad memories.

Having been on the receiving end of the corporate scythe I can understand how awful you must feel doing the axing. And to a friend no less. Sometimes life can really suck. As for your corporate prez, it doesn't surprise me to hear that he's got his head firmly up his butt.

At times like this I need to remind myself that I am not a political prisoner in some awful dictatorship, I'm not a 6 year old child with AIDS drinking water from the same place I defecate in total poverty and I'm relatively sane with the ability to take care of myself at least to some extent despite the corporate insanity that's going on all around me. When I look at it in that light, it doesn't seem quite as bad.

that's awful. My sympathies to you.

Santa Claus, Jerry and Elvis are dead... but long live the almighty dollar.

Oh, Joyous World, thanks so much for the hell you give us. Bastard.

YankeeBoy does have a great point, though, which might not always be comforting, but there are a whole shitload of people who have it way worse than us.

In any case, Nazzman, I wish the best for you and yours, my friend.

Merry (fucking) Christmas.

Merry Effin' X-mas, man - I sincerely wish you good things and real joy and real happiness and never having to hear "Eye of the Tiger" again for as long as any of us may live.

And don't think your Chico Marx quote went unnoticed, either.

aikin said...

ah, man. There ain't nothing there that doesn't suck.
Hope '09 is better all the way around.

Sounds just like him. The fucking prick.
Sorry about your cat. Good luck with the work stuff.

The DEMOCRATS in Congress (0bama one of them), created the current economic crisis. Money laundering with our tax money and perpetuated by encouraging high-risk loans.

You probably have no idea as you're an 0bamafan...
People like you make me sick. Encouraging the corruption of Demorats.
