Thanks to the lovely and talented peregrin8 for the link.
See? I can post about something other than my Big Damn Career Change. Although it's hard to dwell on other matters for long. I'm so incredibly stoked. Did I mention that not only is my current employer not giving me the bum's rush, but they are actually giving me a going away lunch? Just as several of you predicted. Like, whoa.
So this is what it's like to leave a place on good terms, with positive feelings all around. I like it.
