Meet The Awesome Squad

Hey there Awesome Readers,

I’m pleased to say that I’ve been invited to contribute to a new joint blog called The Awesome Squad.

Considering we contributors only really started contributing posts on Saturday, it’s already got a lot of weird, whacky and giggly content. Considering that we are in the midst of a Credit Crunch which sounds like a chocolate bar but is actually causing a lot of stress and job loss around the place, I figure we need somewhere to go and let our marbles loose. We may not be everyone’s cup of darjeeling, but at least we’re not a set of graphs or statistics that will make you tear out your hair, suck your thumb for the first time since you were three years old or sit rocking in the corner. No, siree. We are The Awesome Squad, a bunch of friendly nutcases with a different agenda, even if we do call Sigmund Freud a friend.

Click on the link up above or on my blogroll to see how nutty we are, and how much potential we might have to get much, much worse.

In the meantime, please forgive my irregular posts. I, too, am stuck in redundancy-ville, only for the moment, I am the schmuck trying to help people accept the fact that they don’t have a job tomorrow. Life’s rough. It’s emotional. I’m seeing grown men and women cry. I hate it. That’s why The Awesome Squad couldn’t have come at a better time. I may have Blogger’s Block, but sharing a laugh is precious therapy.

    Hey! Just dropping by to say I bet your Vietnam vacation seems like months ago instead of a just a week. I imagine that if I had to get the ax, I would like you to do it. Not easy for you, of course, but I bet it makes all the difference to those in the chair to have some who clearly cares about their situation even if they can’t wave a magic wand.

    Pat – thank you so much for that comment. It touched me. Hopefully things will start to improve soon. The worst part of the redundancies in this firm is over, but unemployment in the UK is through the roof and rising. More redundancies to come say the economic oracles.
    Razz – I’m racing over to your site now to have a look at this mystery pic you mentioned!
