Today’s thanks goes to FAXBoy my new writing comrade-in-arms and 2011 success cheerleader, who has written a hilarious and insightful send-up of the precariously employed titled Employment Of The Month. Think of it as a real-life Up In The Air meets Reality Bites.
I suggest everyone identify one key person who has also identified goals to achieve in 2011 to bounce ideas off and get encouragement (a kick in the pants if needed).

The funk band Parliament may have used the term in a song title long before the Matrix was released – with some humor attached but the sentiment remains the same.
