Grisly End

When the writers strike hit in November, I had to swallow my pride and ask to return to my old day job as a graphics operator...

... at Bear Stearns.

I'd worked there for 6 years before I landed the deal with Paramount in late 2006. I'd left that company on the best of terms. On such good terms that they welcomed me back when the writers strike derailed my writing career. Kept me on through a major round of layoffs in December.

Post-strike, I was hoping to stick it out there till I could get the writing career back on track and up to speed.

Of course, the company got fucked so hard and fast, everything changed over the course of one weekend. And yesterday, I got laid off.

There goes the safety net.
