Under the Thumb of Da Man

Posted from Culver City, California at 9:30 pm, December 21st, 2006

The Great Retirement of 2005-2006 came to an end three weeks ago after nearly thirteen months (new record!) and these days I find myself slaving away to make Direct TV’s web site run smoothly and look pretty. Despite no longer being able to control my own schedule, there are some definite upsides:

  • I get a window that overlooks LAX, and planes are way cool.
  • I get a paycheck, and being able to pay rent is also way cool.
  • For various reasons I had to form my own company, so my paycheck goes to “Holliday Information Technology Services” (yes, HITS), and even though it doesn’t need to be said, that’s super cool.

Happy holidays to everyone, especially those poor schmucks buried under a mile of snow in Denver!

    1. sadly i’m still waiting for the lawyers to do whatever it is they do with my $120, so my first paycheck remains uncashed until i get a piece of paper making it official. but HITS is coming soon, oh yes.
