Ducks

8 August, 2008

Today was my last day at work. My ritual humiliation leaving presentation was low in humiliation and high in ducks 🙂

My ducks will always be in a row. I feel much better now.

I will miss

  • Pair programming
  • Collecting amusing business metaphors
  • Talking nonsense about K’nex, punchcards and nine-dimensional objects

I will not miss

  • Lotus Notes
  • Trying to sound awake and intelligent at 8 in the morning. 8am!!!
  • That ‘groundhog day’ feeling from seeing the same people on the commute every day. The same guy stopped in the same layby for a last cigarette. The same van with the same broken brakelight. Realising they probably think the same about me.
