Roy Scheider: 1932-2008

Roy Scheider, a two-time Oscar nominee who played the alarmist police chief who famously saves a beach resort in the 1975 blockbuster Jaws, died Sunday. Scheider had been battling multiple myeloma, a cancer of the plasma cells, for the past few years.
He was 75.

I don't quite know why, but even though this man was older than my dad... I found him incredibly sexy.

Rest in peace, Roy.

On the Move...

Sorry, it's been few and far between with my posts... but I have been going a bit crazy lately.

Last week, I gave my notice at work. I have been pursued for about a year by a company, and they finally made me an offer I couldn't refuse. It's the busiest time of year at my current job... so I have been scrambling to get things done in my last two weeks here.

I am very excited, but nervous about my new job. First and foremost, I hate change. But I know that with this job, I'll have more creative freedom... and a chance for professional growth. I am going to be their Senior (this term frightens me... I'm turning 40 in 2 months!) Graphic Designer and will be overseeing two younger designers. There will be more stress with this job... but I think, overall, it will be much more fulfilling.

I'm hoping that in the next few weeks, I'll get settled in my new environment and will have a bit more time for posting to my blog.

Hope each and every one of you are doing well... and are happy!
