Fold-up Guys


I'm slightly freaking out. If I gave into my fears, I'd be totally freaking out. In one more week the office that I work in will be closed and I will be reassigned to another department back in our offices in the city (Manhattan). As I told a friend who works in my old department there, "If you see me lying in a fetal position in the elevator, just step over me." Not that I mind going back to work in Manhattan - I look forward to it, but reinventing myself yet again is getting tired. Or maybe I'm just getting tired. It's really a grand charade this earning a living.

And so as not to give in to such stress, I will make a fold-up guy. You can too, by clicking on readymech.com. The cute little fella above is a tentaclopse, just one of the many fun fold-up guys to be found.

Couldn't I somehow make a living making fold-up guys? I'd better practice.

Aww, sounds like you're having a tough week. Sure wish I could come out there and treat you to a relaxing night out with no Valium required!

Try to take it easy lil 'g, everything will work out alright. :-)

I hear they need Javelin catchers for the Olympics, but talk about stress!

Sorry about the stress. Cute fold-up guy.

I hope things will go better than you expect, and the reinventing will be not so tiring. Oh you know what? Don't reinvent, fly! :-)

OH, sheesh, I know it's tiring to reinvent. Sorry, G. You need a break. Tell you what? Make 100 of those fold out guys and call me in the morning...

Bummer about work. I think you've taken the right angle. Fold-up guys are going digital.

Jeff, too bad your band doesn't play NYC! Yeah, I'm just venting and trying to go with the flow in the meantime - deep cleansing breaths :)

T&I: Thanks for the perspective, things don't seem so bad all of the sudden.

Anon, thanks - what's life, without stress? Make one!

Ariel, I'm getting my wings out as we speak...

Pavel, I'm up to 78...

Doug, so I'm ahead of the curve, you say?
