Her:   No, I just don’t feel like being here. Me:  …………. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Yesterday, I was working on huge report [...]

Captain…she’s breaking up!

Date August 19, 2010

Woooohooo!  It has been a busy but very productive (and good) week.  Work has been crazy (but good) as we are heading towards fiscal year end.  This happens every year and you would THINK I would be used to it by now, but it always blows my mind.  I actually really enjoy the challenge of [...]

I was on the phone with a supplier. Before I called them, I had just gotten a nice, hot, fresh cup of coffee. We were discussing price and delivery. I took a sip of coffee. It went downhill from there. The coffee went down the wrong pipe, I started to cough (keep in mind, I’m [...]

Shop while you work?

Date August 19, 2005

You have to love a job that lets you go shopping while you work, and that pays you for it at the same time. We are having a drill on the base next week (it’s all over the papers), and I was asked to go get some supplies for the men. Powdered Gatorade, coolers and [...]

Was that a compliment?

Email Issues

Date July 26, 2005

Don’t you hate it when: 1) You receive an email at that immediately causes your blood pressure to boil, and you forward that same email to a friend, with a response which is nothing more than a personal rant/vent, just to get it off your chest. 2) You wait for a day but your friend [...]

What I want to be when I grow up

Date May 13, 2005

Apparently, I’ve not figured it out yet. When I was growing up, I had many different career changes. First, I wanted to be a nurse, like my mother. There were many others. Police officer. Lawyer. Teacher. Veterinarian. You name it; I probably wanted to be it. I went to college full time for a year [...]

There should be a law

Date March 3, 2005

Let me start off by saying, I love fish. I really do. And what people do in their own home, is their own business. Be that as it may, bringing your left over fish to work from the night before and heating it up in the microwave for lunch should be banned. It’s NASTY people! [...]

Construction Zone

Date March 2, 2005

The area that I sit in is having some construction done. They are making my bosses cubicle into an office, complete with walls. So far, today has been the worst. I’m so sick of nail guns, hammers, hammer drills, regular drills, saws, dust, the power going out. They handed out ear plugs today because they [...]
