Well, things are looking up for me in my little world.

Boy's present (shhh-- it's a beeg fat seekrit!) is enroute to my parents' place in Florida.

One major project and one minor one have been vanquished (or at least placed into my boss's hands for the time being).

Brueggers had Velvet Veggie Soup TWO DAYS in a row! YUM~

And I'm feeling a little better.

Everything will work out OK.

OH. And I got the whole email thing ironed out!

I'll never get the emails from the last four days, but I should be connected with the wild world of livejournal from now on.

Hooray for technology! picking up the phone and calling the mail server guy!

And LJ fixed my other email problem. All is good.

This site will steal your day away. And maybe a piece of your soul.


What a rich and complex tapestry of hope abandoned. I believe I saw everything there is to see.

Funny-- the small image for "apologies" on the first page is strongsad. How delicious :)

OMG. I was attempting to eat lunch and write a quick note to P yesterday, and my boss kept hovering over me, asking me what I was doing. It was driving me UP A WALL.

So, P writes:

OMG. I love this man.

After catching my breath and wiping the tears from my eyes, I responded:
Dear [P's boss],

Thank you for your interest in my employee's productivity. Despite my regular hovering and meddling, I was unaware as to the extent to which our respective employees had been wasting valuable time.

Suggest we dock said employees' paychecks for the amount of time they have been wasting, plus an additional 6% above and beyond that amount. After all, had they been performing to the utmost of their abilities, their pay rate and/or hours would certainly have increased by at least that amount.

I would go so far to say that our current P&Ls owe more to this pair of lazybones than any "industry setbacks."

Let's make examples out of them.

Unless, however, you think they might leave us. That would suck.

Best Regards,
[ldy's boss]

He always knows how to make me smile.

"Honey, I love the fact that you have such exacting standards and a blind spot."

* These numbers are a huge exaggeration, but they're funny.

So, all is goodish. I might even head to Tar-zhay today.
