...is negated by the Vorpal Axe of Company Slaying!

If anyone was wondering where I disappeared to in LJ/Dreamwidth land, now you know.

Borders going into Liquidation.

It's rather ironic that I link to the article on the website born of the rotted husk of The Ann Arbor News, one of the papers of a place I used to work at where I was let go when they were eliminating the division I worked in.

Work blocked LJ (but not Dreamwidth! Cross-posting for the win) a long while ago, and I was just too worn out when I got home to come on and post anything.

Now, time to start a new chapter. Well, after I find out when I'm really being let go. We do have a wind-down to do still.

That makes me really, really sad to hear, JD. ::hugs:: I'm sorry it's not going to make it.

Aw, I've been expecting it for awhile, but I still hoped they'd find a buyer. RIP Borders

How are you? This has to have been draining for everyone still on board.

I'm ready for a vacation. :-p Or someone to call back on one of the applications I've put in at UofM. :-p Or both!

Sorry to hear it for your sake as well as for the chain in general... but reading that the HQ has gone from 1800 people down to 400... that's a lot of axe dodging... :(

Will be interesting to see what happens to other book stores, or at least larger chains in the next few years. Hope your new chapter is better than what the next few months of wind-down may entail.
