A festivus for the rest of us

Somebody said something on Facebook about Festivus, and it just seemed appropriate for what I’m going through right now.
Most of us heard about Festivus from Frank Costanza on Seinfeld.  (Funny thing is it was actually “created by writer Dan O’Keefe and introduced into popular culture by his son Daniel, a scriptwriter for the TV Show Seinfeld,” according to Wikipedia.)

According to the show, Festivus involves an aluminum pole instead of a Christmas tree, an airing of grievances, and feats of strength after dinner.  Festivus is only over when the owner of the house is pinned to the ground.  Funny Stuff.

The way I’m feeling right now, Festivus sounds pretty good.  I’ve got some grievances to air, all right.  Be careful.  If you get a Festivus invite from me, it means I’ve got something to say to you, buddy!  (Imagine Frank Costanza yelling that at the top of his lungs when you read the part in italics.)

I’ll land on my feet, I’m sure.  In fact, I’m very sure, given the number of job offers I got before I even got home on Friday.  But nobody likes being let go.  It’s a bruise to the ego, you know?

So, happy Festivus to everyone.  While I’m at it, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, & Happy Kwanzaa.  May no one dedupe your holiday happiness. 😉

    Curtis,
    Sorry to hear about the GlassHouse parting. I sincerely hope they do understand that a few of us hired them knowing that your knowledge was behind the scenes. I myself have used them on two major projects for that reason and that reason only. I’m sure you’ll land on your feet and keep us posted on your next venture.
