>At work, I heard about a small title company that is going to shut down soon. It sounds like the real estate downturn has now jumped from mortgage companies to title companies. I suppose it’s the next inevitable step. I just hate to hear about people losing their jobs around the holidays.
Speaking of work, my company Christmas party is this week. I was hoping to get out of it, but someone had the brilliant idea to have it in the office at 5:00, so there really is no way to avoid it. Although, if they “send us home early” or whatever, I might just not come back. Then again I’ll have to explain my absence and I’m a very good liar.
It might be interesting to see how people would react to the truth…”Actually, I was too depressed to come back. The mere idea of having to attend yet another Christmas party by myself amongst a sea of couples sent me spinning into a shame spiral, which took me 8 hours and a quart of Chocolate Fudge Brownie to get over.”
