It's Friday; you ain't got no job...you ain't got shit to do!
I am making an official unoffical announcement. Or would it be an unofficial official announcement? I will be retiring on August 25th. Retiring from media researching at least. I think I'll have a happy hour or a party to celebrate - no gifts required - just retirement cards. You can even make them by hand. Oh, and maybe balloons. How hilarious would it be for me to have retirement balloons? ha! I'm not sure I'll get to have a retirement party later (you know, when I'm old), and when we're all 70 who's really going to feel like partying it up with me? So if you're trying to pick between now and 50 years from now, I think this one will be more fun. No, there's no pension in my version of retirement and that sucks, but not working has to top it all. And techinically, I'll get to relax a lot so it will be like a quarter life retirement for me. Mark your calendar right now to leave that afternoon free to celebrate. I'll think of something fun to do, you just have to be there.
