In roughly three weeks I'll be changing jobs. I'd explain the story behind the change (well, some of it), what the new job entails, and what the alternatives were but I have about ten other things I ought to do first. So I'll just let you wonder for a while--if you're the wondering type, that is. If not, good--you have a life.

If you read my blog on a regular basis I pity you you may have noticed a disgruntled tone in recent months about work. Some of that was just general work bitching that everyone does now and then. Some of it was not. The good news is that I'll have completely new things to complain about in a few weeks (hopefully not as many) and different people to complain to. It's sure to be an adventure.

Oh. I almost forgot. This is sort of an experiment to see how many people at work manage to find out as the result of my blog rather than more traditional means. I sometimes think that my coworkers pay more attention to stuff I write in public (like my blog) than stuff I write on our internal mailing lists. Don't ask me to speculate about why that is.

Gee, and I thought I'd have nothing to post today. :-)

Congratulations; it sounds like it'll be perfect for you. And fun too!
