I’m at my last day and a half in a job I’ve worked at for five years and seven months. The second half of that sentence is pretty bleak, the 90s Spider-Man cartoon only lasted three years and two months and that feels like it lasted FOREVER.
I’ve worked most of that part-time, two or three days a week. A lot of that was spent reading Wikipedia (he says, currently reading the Wikipedia entry for the 90s Spider-Man cartoon) or making these videos for RTE that are filled with crazy people. I guess if I got down to it I’ve worked here maybe a full week? That still makes me feel pretty tired.
Here’s a photo of me on my first day, five years and seven months ago.
Here’s a photo of me from a few weeks ago.
Time, she is a cruel mistress.
I’ve got a new job that is puuuuurty exciting for me and will be heaps of work so I’ve had to make some adjustments to my life. Less comedy, less coffee, less calling people “chief” until they start doing it sarcastically back to me until they start doing it for realsies.
So, this post is both so I can show off how nicely I’ve aged but to also say I probably won’t be about for a while…but what with the amount of cool comedy people who have stuff lined up for you, I won’t be missed. For the moment I’ll be recording a live-streamed podcast called The Late Late Late Show with Colin Chadwick, ep. 7 streams tonight at www.colinchadwick.com. It’s pretty ace.
See you about, in any case.Damon Blake is a comedy maker and tea-drinker. He likes comic books and hurting people's feelings. He's the Uncle Ben to the bitter loners of Humourisms, ie, his death will motivate them on to greater things.You can find him on Twitter @blakingpoint writing jokes and crying.
