Raven's Non Tag

ten years ago:
1995 I was working for a great boss in the place now under the control and terror of Mr. B. Then it was a great place to be. Lots of freedom, support and creativity, no money woes and lots of mutual respect.

five years ago: Still working in the same org, same job, with a witch for a boss who threw people out of her office (junior and senior to her), drank on the job, ran around our desks to see if we were playing the stock market at work (as if!), threw things, stamped her feet, yelled and slammed doors. The yelling was so loud that people on the other floor of our building would come over to find out what was wrong NOW.

one year ago: Was working with M and just realized that he wasn't the jerk I thought he was, and that I was actually happy working with him.

yesterday, i : worked and was completely out of control of the work ('frenetic' applies), went home, watched TV/blogged and rapidly fell asleep.

    Sounds like you and I could swap clothes. ;)
    At last; another woman my age who refuses to wear a bra at home!! I can NEVER find one that fits and they rub me raw at work. It's always a relief to get home and ditch the bra!

    Oh so totally agree, Tshsmom. I don't care what anyone says about Olga whatsherface, those things were not invented by a woman!

    Probably the same guy who invented bridles for horses? The Iron Maiden?

    LOL!! I think you're right Bridg!
    Especially UNDERWIRE! There's a MALE sadist somewhere, laughing his ass off, after inventing this torture device!
