Karma

In 2000, I joined a company called Hulabee Entertainment. It's a little company formed by Shelley Day and Ron Gilbert. Everything was fine until two years into it... things started to go wrong. I'm not going to get into the specifics but by early 2003, I could not afford to stay there anymore and left the company. Yes... I was upset at what happened but life is too short to dwell on the negative and I moved on.

Now, back to the present.... this article appear on the web:

*CHILDREN'S PUBLISHER JAILED FOR 30 MONTHS*from the Seattle Post-Intelligencer News Services:

A former Mercer Island woman was sentenced to 30 months in federal prison Friday for defrauding a bank by forging documents to bolster her application for large loans.Shelley Day, 45, was a founder of Humongous Entertainment, which became the third-largest publisher of children's software and created such well-known characters as Freddi Fish and Pajama Sam.Her lawyers asked U.S. District Judge Thomas Zilly to defer her sentence until April because she is developing a children's game that could be quite profitable. But Zilly rejected the request.

The morale of this story... sooner of later, it all comes back around in a circle of life sort of a thing. Karma... young grasshopper... it's all karma.
