The first time I got laid off (Vindigo! 2001!), I made these Rules for Unemployment which actually worked really well. And since leaving Google, I've been trying to live by them again. Re-posting today for a friend who now has some extra free time :)

These are the rules from 2002 (after I came back to NYC after working as a snowboard instructor!). Seeing that, er, I still don't have a job, let's update them for 2008.

 

1. Leave your apt before noon every day.

2. Exercise every day (works well with #1)

3. No drinking before 5pm.

4. No watching TV / no reading blogs before 5pm (except during lunch).

5. No taking taxis.

6. No eating meals when drunk.

 

ps: orignally from here - dont miss the haikus!
