Would you like fries with that?

Well, my manager and one other was laid off today. I’m pretty bummed about it–I liked my manager. I don’t dislike my new manager, but I don’t know him very well yet. I’m gonna have to start driving to Provo once a week for work again, at least until things get settled down enough that they won’t need me in as often. There are sure to be more layoffs in the future, but I think my position is fairly secure.
Big Russ came over this evening, which was quite a surprise. He wants me to help him replace the rear brake shoes on his truck, and do some front-end work too. That actually sounds like fun to me, but I don’t relish doing it out in this cold weather. I might just rearrange some stuff in my garage so there’s room to work on it in there–otherwise, we’ll probably just do it in my driveway.
I’d like to go hiking this weekend, preferably high enough in the mountains where there’s plenty of snow, but I just don’t think I’ll have the time. Saturday morning, I’m probably going to a lanparty, and that afternoon I have to go to a wedding. Sunday is the last NASCAR race of the season, and I’ll be helping Russ too, so it’s doubtful I’ll have time then either. Them’s the breaks, I guess.
