    because i'm the best is why i'm going to quit..

    i was pissed a few months ago cause i was still a contractor.. but they made me a reg/full employee (w/benefits etc..).. took a bit of pay away but said things would get better

    gave em a few months..things are worse.. i'm outtie.. IBM, FYI, SUCKS TO WORK FOR.

    IMO any company sucks to work for...
    If you want things your way, you must own your own business. no questions asked

    Yeah, I just drove back from Montreal and I'm WIRED. No sleep 'till Brooklyn yo. J'aime la belle province.

    Such a fantastic trip. I went to this outdoor spa a few hours north of Montreal, visited an organic farm and ate wicked healthy food and petted donkeys and went on a hike, then went to Aria for Sasha and undid all the healthy progress I had made in about... oh, 30 minutes. Went to Mount Royal after and slept in the sunshine. I was contemplating partying as soon as I got back to Toronto but came to my senses and decided to stay in.

    So here I am.

    Just rolled in for an 8:30 start. I'm a little torn today, for a couple of reasons. 1) I normally would work Mondays anyway, but usually in the evening (3:00 - 11:30p). So at least I get to work during the day today 2) I'm making 'time-and-a-half', plus I'll get paid for the holiday at regular time. Of course, that's still only just what I would consider 'reasonable pay' for this dull-ass job.

    Anyway, I didn't sleep very well last night -- fucking allergies -- so I'm sure to be ultra-useful here today on the fones. Happy Labour Day! :-|

    yeah...in a way it's brutal that I'm @ work right now, on only maybe 4 hours of good sleep, but it's the nature of my job...
