A Kick In The Rear

Half of my work unit were made redundant last week. They were offered equivalent contracts with the company taking over those operations, so it could’ve been far worse, but the rest of us are on edge. None of our immediate supervisors had any forewarning so it is difficult to take their reassurances without question. I’ve worked there for almost three years. In truth I knew it was probably time to start looking again, but now it seems like I’m running against a fluid deadline that no one really acknowledges. I’d like to move closer to my family so that’s the way I’m leaning. I’m wary.

Sounds of Babel

Today I’m thankful for nonsense sounds.

Sometimes combinations of word sounds just make me laugh.  They sound utterly silly to me.  I don’t know how many other people have similar experiences.  My sample is so far limited to two.

The domain I chose reflects my love of things that sound silly together.  I’m naturally pretty quiet and stern, contrasted by my very absurd sense of humor.  I can be both dark, like thunderheads, and just plain goofy.  It’s reflective of who I am, and sounds a bit like word salad.
