Per Josie request

Year is almost half over, last few weeks have seen some downward movement after 2 month lull. This puts me at just short of halfway to goal just short of halfway through year but I figure I am not burning 30 calories/hour walking and unknown less in other activities since I am carrying less weight.

What Would you Do?

After reading waffle's post on the subject as well as Rigg's I decided to post my own WWYD.

As a disclaimer I must point out that unlike these people I am not old enough to be eligible.

Company you work for has announced they are going to reduce $1 billion in expenses, you work in a group with a significant number of contractors that is still in key segment of companies business.

Those who are 50+ and with years at company added reach 60 are eligible to opt for early retirement which means getting X years pay plus Y years medical plus other incentives. (I don't feel it is right to post exact details put did find details here.)

You also get information that in the event you are laid off you will receive X/3 years pay and Y/4 years medical.

Math would indicate from numbers that intent is to reduce work force 5-10%.

1) Do you immediately look for another job?
2) Do you automatically take the retire offer even in absence of finding new job?
3) What odds would you need that you can find a new job within time period X to have sufficient pot odds?

Vegas Bound

Youngest cousin (I have met) is getting married this summer. Bachelor Party is this weekend with base being Mandalay Bay.

I may play PLO Monday and if not Tuesday.

I am also comped into a Blackjack tournament so will have to play that. It is 1st so obviously it is play Blackjack but rest of strategy will be new. What I learned at my only craps tournament was my being 2nd shooter and rolling well did nothing for me as other people made more money than I. But what I learned playing craps with Recess was to use position to make sure I was collecting slightly more when table was good.

One thing for sure is I need a break from work. Was so psyched that boss started 3 week vacation Monday but fucker keeps emailing questions. I will not be checking email when I vacation.
