Let them eat cake 

I ran into our HR person in the hall yesterday and she asked me if I'd be open to having the traditional farewell cake in the lunchroom next Friday. (My last day is next Friday! Crimeny!) I don't care for such fussings myself, but I wouldn't want to deprive my coworkers of cake. (That's assuming any of them show up.)

I think the reality of my departure is really starting to sink in for me. I'm starting to let the irritations of the job slide and am feeling the first hints of mourning over the people and the positive things about this place. The full feeling will probably be covered over by the stress and excitement of the coming month, of course. I'll have to go over to Classmates.com and sign up for their workplace section....
