OhioHobbit may be more able to deal with what he really should do with his life when he is over the shock a bit more. Thanks for the offer and the support.

Oh, no! [In reply to] Can't Post

I was recently talking with my aunt and uncle from the Youngstown area, and they had only dire news, so many places shutting down out there.

I'm so, so sorry to hear this, this cuts right to the heart! We can only hope and pray that something good will come out of this.

These are dark times for you; as Tolkien wrote to his son in the midst of their darkness, keep up your Hobbitry in heart!

Fun, fun, fun... [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm very sorry to hear that OhioHobbit's been laid off from his job. That just bites! Here's hoping that it will be a temporary state of affairs.

Freelancing and contracting can be viable options if you've got the skills. Let me know if you'd like me to take a look at resumes/cover letters/etc. (Been laid off a few times myself -- once with extreme prejudice, once with extreme indifference, and a couple of times with extreme reluctance.)

We're discussing the BBC Lotrd of the Rings Radio Play on the Movie Discussion - LOTR board.

With caffeine, all things are possible.

The pity of Bilbo will screw up the fate of many.

At the meeting on Wednesday at the employment services, all the former employees looked to be in shock. Most of them had around 20 years.

right. If we had had some warning of this, we could have been planning, saving, and NOT buying things. But as it was at 1:45 p.m. he had a job and at 2:45 he was home and out of work!

for your kind offer. I will pass it along to OhioHobbit.

I think he was laid off with extreme indifference. This was never a company that treated employees with any concern.

He needs to go to Helm's Deep for awhile, before he's ready to ride out and meet them head on, so to speak.

You can find me there, hanging out around Keep with a spar glass of Rohan ale for each of you, when and if my offer would be helpful...

Oh, [In reply to] Can't Post

that puts me in mind of a festival we went to years ago. It was a French Voyager festival -- you know the French who went out into the wilderness in the 18th century. Well the costume of choice for way too many well-fleshed gents was a loin cloth and leggings. This was not necessarily a good look for all of them!
