I lost my job today

... when I traded it in for a FABULOUS NEW PROMOTION! WOO-HOO!

And what started on July 22, 1991, as a placeholder copywriter job to tide me over until I figured out what the hell I wanted to be when I grew up is now, 13 and a half years later, an associate creative director job with—ACK!—people who report to me.

I apologize in advance for all the careers I destroy as I struggle through this early learning curve.

Woo! Congrats!

(But now with all of that new work, how will you find time to decide what you want to be when you grow up?!)

Congratulations Jake! It's about time the oft-promised promotion materialized and it couldn't have been more well-deserved. New dragons to slay!

In the words of the great Nathan Lane as spoke in his reprisal of the role of Alfred in the 1996 remake of La Cage Aux Folles, Birdcage: "Mon Congrats you beautiful people! Mwa, mwa, mwa! [flamboyant kissing sound]" (Yeah, I'm that gay. It hurts sometimes.)

Wait, that sounded all wrong....

Congrats studpuppet! I am truly impressed. Truly.

(Note to self: Steer clear of Jake's newfound potential career destruction capability while in same building. Then again, I could use a change of scenery.)

Yeah!!! It sounds like someone has some sense at that place! And, no worries on destroying people - I would work for you in a heartbeat. These are lucky people.

Sincere congratulations!
