Back to Work. It's Like I Never Left.

Yesterday I started my new job with my new company.  It started with an all day meeting with their biggest client, who is my former company.  Sitting in an all day meeting was just like I remember it. The only good things about it was, we all got a free lunch and I got paid for the day.  (That's really good.)  Just counting my salary for yesterday and today, is more that I made in a weeks worth of unemployment.  (I still don't know why Republicans think that unemployment comp is a disincentive to get a job.)

Anyway I am not producing anything at work yet, just learning stuff.  And there is a lot to learn.  This company is a small start up (fewer than 100 employees) and there is so much of the information that I need to learn is tied up in the heads of just a few people.  If any one of those people got hit by a bus, the company would be totally screwed.

Anyway, I am grateful to have a good job with a company that has a good product and a good way to sell it.  

In a note of irony, I had lunch today with some friends from my old company.  They told me that there is another round of downsizing that is going to happen.  Today they sent a company wide e-mail asking for volunteers who would be willing to leave.  YIKES!!  I'm glad I landed a job before I have to complete with all the people they are going to let go.

Tonight I am going to see my beloved.  I have not had much of a chance to be with him lately.  I saw him on Sunday, but I was not able to stay long.  Tonight I will get there earlier and plan to stay later than usual.  Tomorrow I don't have to go anywhere and can just work from my home office.

Do you identify as gay or are you actually gay, in the sense that are you seually attracted to women at all (considering that you were married im guessing you are) ? Many bisexual men identify as gay, which encourages other people to claim that there is no such thing as bisexuality. Perhaps someday we will have the trend of bi men coming out of the gay-closet.

I definitely think there exists bisexuality. However, in my opinion, there are more married gay men who claim bisexuality than the other way around. But, why worry about it? It's not like one is better than the other. Regardless, if Jim still has any bisexuality in him, the next time I see him, I will squeeze it right out of him...and that's only one method...:D
