Brief Excursion to Schuyler and Charlottesville

Since so many great people were canned in AOL’s irrational corporate action on Tuesday, we’ve been in a bit of shock at work, and remaining management is scrambling to figure out how to do the job with far less man-power (unlike previous layoffs, this one was random and hit many of the prime workers). I took two days off to be with Erci (she was layed off) and collect my wits. Frankly, I am not sure I want to work there anymore, as it is no longer the company I started working for in 1995.

We made lemonaide out of lemons and headed for Schuyler, VA to visit Bob and Liz, tour their new house, and the one under construction. Very nice digs they will have when it is finished. They took us into lovely downtown Charlottesville where we walked around, and had an excellent dinner at Zocalo. They have a “lemonaide” made with Maker’s Mark, blackberries, chilli, and lemonaide that is a fiesta on the tongue. Yum!

The leaves are beginning to turn and the drive up and back along U.S. Highway 29 was beautiful. I got my tires replaced on the Prius (how can tires go bad in only 23,000 miles?!?) and I had some dance lessons while Erci continued some out-processing/training/career counseling she gets as part of the layoff package
