And now we come to the moment ...

In one hand is an ultra sound of my new child to be. In the other is the letter telling me I was laid off.

On November 1st I was let go from my job after almost five years there. Tomorrow I have three big interviews. I love my beard, but not everyone else does and I'm not willing to risk not getting a job over it.

Whiskerino '07 was one of the greatest things I've ever been a part of. And I have been truly sad knowing I would not be able to stay in Whiskerino 09 all the way through.

Thanks to everyone who makes Whiskerino what it is. The fellowship is not to be underestimated.

All the best

Todd

Best of luck to you, man. I hope you crush the interviews and get an amazing job.

I also hope that hundreds of bunnies visit your house while you sleep and impregnate the plants outside your house and you make millions off of bunnietrees or bunniegrass.

Seriously. Good luck.

yes, it's ironic that not shaving, and staying unemployed would actually be more shameful. good luck with those interviews.

please post a shavedown pic tomorrow so we can give you a proper shaming.

i can't figure out a good farewell shot. i'm probably just going to end up posting something simple and lame. when it should be epic. think i'll need to break out the old giant blue razor maybe.
