Plans: work 2nd shift
candle: Donar/Thor, thunder forth in our lives. When we would hold back, let us advance. When we would be weak, help us be strong. When we would shun life’s pleasures, sharpen our appetites for that which is lusty and good. Help
us grow from strength, and teach us, elder brother, how to throw our own Hammer, and slay the giants who appose our will. HAIL DONAR/THOR!!

Advice on how to spend the day
AM Rune: Gebo (irreversible): The mystical union of gift and
giver, repay gift for gift, a fair exchange between people or gods and the Luck
that accompanies it; freely exchanged, contracts, relationships, sometimes
sexual, sacrifice, and hospitality, do not take more than we are wiling to give,
the voluntary sacrifice of resources.
Outcome: I woke up to Audie and her best friend on the porch with her best
friend obviously in an emotional state. She has been going thru relationship
issues for a while and it seems like something is up. It’s good she feels she’s
welcomed over here and has 24hr access. Audie and her took off for personal

I spent the rest of the morning and into the afternoon getting the Vé ready for Walpurgisnacht.
Well, today couldn’t been any worse at work. We were given to sets of bad
news: 1. Sunday is now mandatory, too. 2. The first round of 60-day lay-off
notices come out tomorrow. So at the same time they are going to work us to
death they are also telling us our jobs are surely coming to an end. I got hit
in the first round of lay-offs in 2009; there’s no reason to think this is going
to be any different. I’m still low man on the totem-pole. Early in 2009 there
was a considerable hiring effort but I haven’t seen any of those folks, which
keeps me at the bottom of the seniority list. Mixed emotions; sure I knew this
was inevitable but the reality of it still sucks. OMGs, the rest of the evening
was spent in such a dark mood. It was pervasive throughout our shop as well as
others. No one gives a shit anymore. I am so willing to sacrifice my
relationship with this fucking company; even though I have no idea what’s going
to come next.
PM Prayer: Scata/Skahdi:
Scata/Skahdi, fleet on your skis and let me be the game you bag with you bow. Stun me with your grace and beauty, tuck me in the skin-sack at your side, and then take me to
your home where wolves howl. There, teach me to know the pleasure of the hunt,
the joy of exertion, and the crisp freedom of winter and wilderness. Brand my soul with wind-burn, so that even in the tedium of daily life, I will feel your warm breath, warm on my check, telling me to be strong, able and worthy of you. SCATA/SKAHDI, HAIL!!
PM Rune: none
