I just (officially) found out today that I will be out of a job by December/January :(

The Executives have decided to close the mining operations at about Christmas time which there will no doubt be big party Christmas/shutdown party.

What's interesting to note is that Exploration will continue and the Mill will stay where it is for now (or until exploration can find more ore) :P

I will be sad to leave this Job because of the awesome ongoing experiences and people that I've met but, hopefully I can find a new IT related job within the mining industry by then.

At least I will have plenty of time to do it with a retention bonus and almost a years worth of holiday pay, so not to worry (financially that is)!

Well, it's that time of year again where a small clump of friends seem to be having birthdays at about the same time :( Not that this is much of an issue, but I will most likely miss most of them due to me work roster (which has now decreased by one day :)

Work is very busy - too busy - with a list of things that seem never-ending and approaching infinity but I decided long ago to stop trying so hard and just "do what I can" (It's less stressful that way :P)

Speaking of birthdays, my sister is pregnant (has been for a few months now) and getting bigger! No idea yet on any names for the baby, but since it's not mine I don't worry about it. I guess I am curious what sex it is though.

On another totally unrelated note, this mornings weather was very strange. It started out as a normal cloud-free morning and not long after the sun came up, it got all mystified (hehe) all of a sudden, it was not only quite eery but strange at the same time.

Ok, enough blogging. I'm hungry and it's time to eat...

It's yet another boring weekend at work, so I decided to blog again :)

Still haven't started going to the Gym yet, but I will probably go tonight, since I wanted to watch Futurama last night *grin*

It's actually raining up north here which is bit of a surprise since it's about mid-winter and it's barely even rained here so far...

I've decided to stop procrastinating about it and clean most of the computers on site here be going around, disconnecting them and blasting them with a bit of air from a portable compressor and also doing some administrative work that is hard to get done during the week.

I never thought I would say this, but I am starting to miss being in Perth more and more (but I think it has something to do with not having to work when offsite on RDO)

Well I had better get some work done... or at least make it look like I'm working :P

Current Mood: Bored (and kind of lonely...)

Level ?? Humanoid

I think that title best describes me at the moment what with all the WoW I have been playing while on break recently.

I signed up today for a membership for the SPQ gym up north (where I work duh!) but I am too tired to do anything tonight as I only got 3-4 hours sleep last night right after I got about 6 the previous (<sarcasm>I'm a sucker for sleep deprivation</sarcasm>)

So while I'm on a weird, sleep, induced and crazy tangent I thought I'd try and post something. Anything.

I also found out how to do a salary sacrifice and am thinking of buying this. Very NIICCCE!

Went to a wedding on Saturday and as usual I was in my unsociable, gregarious mood so that was a really crap night for me, but the night before I did get to go to the Hog's Breath Cafe with a bunch of friends which was a good night.

Anyways I'm tired and cold and there are wolves after me... (simpsons quote :P)
