First off, before I even apologize for not blogging as often as I used to, let me say that stupid Blogger just ate the entire post I had just written. And it was a long one too. Full of wit and sarcasm. Shit, now I have to try to recreate that. Great.
Here's some random poo just for you since I haven't blogged that much lately.
Random poo numero uno:
My doc has me on a low dose antidepressant for these headaches I've been getting everyday. I don't like it. Not at all. First, it's not doing a damn thing for these headaches. I'm still getting them just about everyday and some days they are almost unbearable. The med she gave me to take when I get a headache doesn't work either. Second, they make me irritable. And that really sucks. Plus they've got me all scatterbrained. I've been stumbling over my words a lot lately and I've been acting like a crackhead. (You don't want to know how many times I've had to erase words or sentences already and I'm not nearly done with this post.)
File this one under Tales from the Workplace:
I seriously wonder about some, if not most, of the people that work here. Right behind our building is a ditch. This ditch fills up with water when it rains, like just about every ditch does, and it is home to quite a few snakes. This is normally something you are warned about when you come to work here because every spring/summer they will see at least two snakes on the property. Okay, so let me tell you about something that happened this morning.
Boss Man was on the phone and his other line started to ring. Me being the good little Admin Assistant that I am, I answered it. On the other end was someone we'll call Linda.
Linda: Hey, is Boss Man around?
Me: He's on the other line. Can I take a message?
Linda: Well, I hate to complain but I hear them out there with the mowers and Boss Man needs to get over there and unlock the gate to the patio (it's the smokers' normal hang out behind the building) so that they can mow there. We're going to get snakes.
Me: I'll give him the message.
Boss Man got off the phone and I gave him the message. His response to me was that he didn't have the key but he would contact the person who does. He called that person and left him a message and we went about our business. Not even two minutes later Linda came flying into Boss Man's office and said "You need to go unlock that gate so that they can mow around the patio." He told her the same thing he told me and she left. Not even two minutes after that, Boss Man got a call from Big Boss Lady (his boss) saying that Linda had called her and told her the same thing. Some people.
It's time to give a shout out and a big congratulations to...
Jen and Chris. They found out this week that they will adding another little ruffian to their family. He should be making his appearance sometime in July. Yay!! I was waiting until they found out the gender of their little person before I started shopping for baby gifts. Bananer will tell you how much I like shopping for baby gifts. : )
I leave you with this....
Be jealous. Be very, very jealous. Bananer and I are heading down to Mobile tonight so that we can be some of the first people to board our cruise ship tomorrow. Yep, we're heading out on an extended weekend courtesy of the Carnival Cruise ship Holiday. Woohoo!!!!
