Ravings and Rantings

Welcome to my cloud! It's got a nice silver lining somewhere.....Some ranting, some raving--mostly positive stuff,lots of jokes (I can't stay serious). Nothing going on here that a pina colada or mohito can't fix.

Simply Red Lyrics
Stars Lyrics (courtesy of http://www.lyricsondemand.com/s/simplyredlyrics/starslyrics.html)

Anyone who ever held you
Would tell you the way I'm feeling
Anyone who ever wanted you
Would try to tell you what I feel inside
The only thing I ever wanted
Was the feeling that you ain't faking
The only one you ever thought about
Wait a minute can't you see that I
I wanna fall from the stars
Straight into your arms
I, I feel you
I hope you comprehend
For the man who tried to hurt you
He's explaining the way I'm feeling
For all the jealousy I caused you
States the reason why I'm trying to hide
As for all the things you taught me
It sends my future into clearer dimensions
You'll never know how much you hurt me
Stay a minute can't you see that I
I wanna fall from the stars
Straight into your arms
I, I feel you
I hope you comprehend
Too many hearts are broken
A lover's promise never came with a maybe
So many words are left unspoken
The silent voices are driving me crazy
As for all the pain you caused me
Making up could never be your intention
You'll never know how much you hurt me
Stay can't you see that I
I wanna fall from the stars
Straight into your arms
I, I feel you
I hope you comprehend

Love that song! How goes it world? It's stifling, silly hot here. Way into 40+ with humidity. Like being in a sauna YUK. Even hot at work with the a/c going full blast.

Today went OK. The meeting with Mr. B and the group was fine. He asked to talk to me after the meeting, which always gives me quite the feeling...but he asked if I would like to work on a tough issue that he and a new person have been trying to handle while I'm looking for a job. In other words "we need help but keep trying to get your butt outa here".

I am an idiot. I agreed to help.

Yup you read that right.

Did mention that I'm waiting for call-backs and can't predict what will come through when, so in the interim I would like to help.

He was nice. Well OK he treated me the way he treats other folks. Which is a vast improvement.

My pal Pauly is on vacation until July 12. I am glad for him, panicked for me. Fortunately S is still here, with his lovely dry humor. One of the guys who retired is back as a consultant and he is a pal also, so it's, well, OK.

I am just sick with worry about whether or not I'll be able to find anything. If I'm so good how come I don't have anything yet??? Yikes.

Took two of my awards home. Got sick of having parts of me still in the office.

It's hard to see into the future. Usually I can visualize something (heh heh heh how many times have I/you done that, and how often has it turned out as visualized?) but not now. My shrink thinks that I'm doing OK.

No comment.

Little bro might finally separate from S. She's turned his daughter against him, and wants to send her (daughter) to another city to live with S's mom, who REALLY hates little bro. Little Bro is over his gambling problem (we hope), but is a loving and very naieve person. I just hope that the witch doesn't poison him. Or his son (they have 2 kids. The son looks exactly like Little Bro and the witch holds it against the poor kid). Hope that the two of them get out of there safely. Fast.

What a world!

Mom's cat is still at the vet's. He won't eat and no one can figure out why. She's very upset and I don't blame her. Fortunately Big(ger) Bro is retired and spending time with her. She adores him, and that's helping a great deal.

And now for something completely different.

From my pal Eric, who courageously lives in Washington D.C. (talk about sauna!):

A magazine recently ran a "DILBERT QUOTES" contest. They were looking for people to submit quotes from their real-life Dilbert-type managers. Here are the top ten finalists:

1. "As of tomorrow, employees will only be able to access the building using individual security cards. Pictures will be taken next Wednesday and employees will receive their cards in two weeks." (This was the winning quote from Fred Dales, Microsoft Corp. in Redmond, WA)

2. "What I need is an exact list of specific unknown problems we might encounter." (Lykes Lines Shipping)

3. "E-mail is not to be used to pass on information or data. It should be used only for company business." (Accounting manager, Electric Boat Company)

4. "This project is so important, we can't let things that are more important interfere with it." (Advertising/Marketing manager, United Parcel Service)

5. "Doing it right is no excuse for not meeting the schedule." (Plant manager, Delco Corporation)

6. "No one will believe you solved this problem in one day! We've been working on it for months. Now, go act busy for a few weeks and I'll let you know when it's time to tell them." (R&D supervisor, Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing/3M Corp.)

7. Quote from the Boss: "Teamwork is a lot of people doing what I say." Marketing executive, Citrix Corporation)

8. My sister passed away and her funeral was scheduled for Monday. When I told my Boss, he said she died on purpose so that I would have to miss work on the busiest day of the year. He then asked if we could change her burial to Friday. He said, "That would be better for me." Shipping executive,FTD Florists)

9. "We know that communication is a problem, but the company is not going to discuss it with the employees." (Switching supervisor, AT&T Long Lines Division)

10. One day my Boss asked me to submit a status report to him concerning a project I was working on. I asked him if tomorrow would be soon enough. He said, "If I wanted it tomorrow, I would have waited until tomorrow to ask for it!" (Hallmark Cards Executive)

Dont' forget NCIS tonight folks!

Many hugs, Bridg
