Several folks at work announced that they're changing jobs soon. The announcements were along the lines of "when I get back from vacation, I'll be taking a new position doing..."

Of course, nobody knows what to believe, being April 1st and all.

If they're legit, we need to slap these guys for picking the worst possible day to make such an announcement. If not, then we'll soon know how many people were fooled.

Personally, I don't know what to believe. I'm suspicious of just about everything I read on April 1st.

On a related note, I was really hoping that The Onion would do something extra special today. But it seems not. Oh, well.

My famous boss Monty Widenius and one of the female developers in our company announced last year on Apr 1st, that they'll be divorcing their current husbands and get married on Halloween. I said I'll eat my shorts at the next big company meeting in case this isn't a stoopid joke.

I need to swallow down my pride and take a trip to a local sex shop to buy a pair of edible pants by May.
