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.

This Is The Right Time

Let's hear it for Black Box! An underrated group (d'apres me)...

MUCH better day today and hope yours was too, world?

Turns out that the place I'm hoping to work at called me twice without leaving a message so far this week (and it's only TUESDAY!!!). The third time they did leave one, and believe me I called back fast! Am going over there Friday a.m. ...there are some folks who want to meet me. I'm soooooooo estatic I've been climbing the walls and ceilings since 2:00 today. Am good for doing zip at work (bear in mind I don't have an offer yet). Yikes/Yippee!!

And not one other thing is in my head. Oh Yah, best friend among friends Pauly sent me what I think is a hilarious joke (did I ever mention that the two of us act like five year olds and we're worse when we're together?)...here it is....(remember, 5 year olds....)

>>>> Mary had a little pig
,>> She kept it fat and plastered,
>> And when the price of pork went up,
>> She shot the little bastard.

>>>> Mary had a little lamb
>> Her father shot it dead.
>> Now it goes to school with her,
>> Between two hunks of bread.

>>>> Jack and Jill
>> Went up the hill
>> To have a little fun.
>> Stupid Jill forgot the pill
>> And now they have a son.

>>>> Simple Simon met a pie man
>> Going to the fair.
>> Said Simple Simon to the Pie man,
>> "What have you got there?"
>> Said the Pie man unto Simon,
>> "Pies, you dumb #$%!" (THAT one killed me...)

>>>> Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
>> Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
>> All the King's horses,
>> And all the King's men.
>> Had scrambled eggs,
>> For breakfast again.

>>>> Hey Diddle Diddle
>> The cat took a piddle,
>> All over the bedside clock.
>> The little dog laughed to see such fun.
>> Then died of electric shock.

>>>> Georgey Porgey Pudding and Pie,
>> Kissed the girls and made them cry.
>> And when the boys came out to play,
>> He kissed them too 'cause he was gay.

>>>> There was a little girl who had a little curl
Right in the middle of >> her forehead.
>> When she was good, she was very, very good.
>> But when she was bad........
>> She got a fur coat, jewels, a waterfront condo, and a sports car.

Oh forgot a few things. First, Marc is a former colleague. He left here a few months ago, and S replaced him. Marc is gorgeous also (like S), virtually married, and a hell of a lot of fun. Smart too. It's wonderful news that he's coming back. The place he went to is a hell-hole, and we all warned him about it. Glad he's coming to his senses. The guy who's the new boss here, G, worked with Marc in the hell-hole. Marc is not M. Both gorgeous, smart, married but no, not the same!

Also, today Mr. B was a B with Issy. Did the same stupid thing with her that he did with me a few years ago. She's been upset since last Friday about it. I felt so very bad for her. Pauly helped her, God bless him! Things like what Mr. B did help convince me it's worth any price to get the heck away from him. The man could not manage a pee break in a beer factory, and stunts like that prove it. He was polite to me once, then churlish in an e mail.

Stability would be great. I'd settle for professional...lol!

hugs, Bridg (still climbing the walls but laughing....)

    whoo hoo thanks for the clarification on M .... good to know!

    i can't wait til you get outta there but then you will leave Marc behind .. so you have to take everyone with you.

    between you and M .. and Pauly and S and Issy and Marc ... and whomever else ... seriously .. whatever it is you all do .. couldn't you start your own company with all of you together?

    LMAO @ the adult nursery rhymes.

    Ah the day to day drama at the workplace, it's like a friggin' soap opera mixed with reality tv here at my office.

    Those nursery rhymes are awesome! I heard the Jack and Jill one before, but the rest are new to me.

    Raven, we're planning it as a second career. Seriously. Can't wait to go.

    Tshsmom, those guys are all over the place. This particular prize was without a job for two years on a sort of waiting list. They stuck us with him because we're a little group that no one cares much about. They didn't get rid of the last 2 idiots until, in the first case, 50 percent of the staff left in 3 months, and in the second case, the idiot was so bad that someone blabbed to the local scandal mag about her and they were embarrassed into doing something. This guy is in the same mould.

    Bsoholic, If your sandbox is anything like the one I'm in "management" wise, I pity you too. We should cook up a big black book of office revenge..oh wait you're blogging that already lol.

    Red TY! Not sure the kiddies would get them tho tee hee hee

    ZS, thanks! They came from Pauly's bro. Every time I read them, especially the pie one, I just crack up.
