My new toy...

It was my going-away gift from my now-former employer.

I'm now part of the 21st Century! I really AM moving up in the world.

So yeah, there were some tears on my part, and lots of nice things said by the boss and my former colleagues. And cake. Gluten-free, of course. And then a yummy lunch with Miss Cheese and Miss Angela and the adorable young Luke.

It still hasn't all sunk in yet. I'm not sure it will until I start the new gig. And there's another party to come, one off the premises where cocktails will be consumed.

In the meantime, I'll be playing with my fabulous new toy!

WOW, what a great group. I think it comes from working with someone as awesome for you for so long. I am sure you'll be missed.

It's cool that we're both starting our new jobs on the same day

is that what i am now, dz? an iPodian? cool!

jon, the gift was actually from the bosses, so that's really why i was so amazed.

the gift from my coworkers is their support, which means so much.

from the bosses? Even more impressive.

I wish I could be there to toast (and roast) you.

I'm jealous... I so want one of those things but I'm too tech-retarded to bother! Enjoy it AND your time off!

jon, you have some time off... roast and toast away!

jmai, i've been wanting an ipod but have been so financially strapped i haven't opened that door.... for the thing itself, for upgrading my internet connection, for opening an itunes account where i'm sure i'll spend all kinds of cash... but now, i can' afford some of that!

but i'll try not to go broke on itunes.
