Yesterday was my last day working at The Irvine Company.
In fact, it was my last day working ever…or at least for quite some time.

I spent the last few days training my replacement as best as I could.
Everybody seemed to be very appreciative at work, and supportive of my goals.

Tuesday a few people (from desktop and helpdesk) took me out to lunch.
Wednesday my whole team took me out to lunch.

It was nice to feel appreciated. Everyone in the team had nothing but good
things to say to me. Definitely inflated the ego a bit :-)

So yes, today is the first day.
I think it will take some time to sink in really.

Either way, I’m looking forward to spending my days exactly the way I want
to…and no more dry cleaning!

I think today will involve breakfast shenanigans with
among other things. She decided to spend her day off with me on my first day
of freedom. We’re going to that photography exhibit in San Pedro I’ve been
wanting to see. She’s also accompanying me to see James Holden tonight.

I’m excited…first time I heard “Horizons” by James Holden was at my first
desert party over 3 years ago. I was amazed. I really dig his style and
have on more than one occassion had Erik play that record for me. I won
tickets on KCRW to see him spin at the Spider Club (just above the avalaon).
