Almost called in today, but we've got a system go-live happening next week so it's all hands on deck.

Actually slept pretty good last night. Woke up 20 mins before my alarm and was not tired.

Good morning, folks!

5 minutes after walking into the office, boss drops a huge (potentially career- and life-altering) bomb on me.

Santa Cruz is nice and all, but they couldn't pay me enough.

Upshot: I'd be moved from peon, past front line supervisor, to middle management in less than 3 years and become, potentially, one of the youngest (if not THE youngest) ever to be offered that position.

*intentionally omitted specifics for obvious reasons*

The immediate implications are obvious. The long term implications would be that I'd be in a position to become grand poobah in my late 40s.. about 15 years younger than the last 5 grand poobahs.

It's an interesting study into the modern workforce. Baby-boomers are sticking around longer occupying a large segment of the workforce and, as they promote out of the workforce, they leave a substantial vacuum of experience and qualification. Instead of a continuous fluidity to the turnover cycle there's a very abrupt and sharp drop off in knowledge, skills and abilities.

Should be a hell of a ride..
