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.

Catch My Fall

Not that there's been a stumble, Billy Idol fans!

How are you world? Sorry no post last night, it took so long to log onto anywhere last night I gave up and went to sleep.

DAR AND GI ARE BACK TODAY YIPPEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Weather people have been wrong all week about predicting rain in Ottawa. It's been really sunny lol. They had predicted a week of rain. Then quickly revised the forecasts. Don't you just love that?

Spent most of yesterday in long, over two hour each, meetings focussing on the two studies that M and I have been working on that HAVE to be done by end of June. Guess what? One of them delighted M's boss and he extended the deadline significantly. We didn't even ask. The second one M's boss has not seen yet (done by world's worst consultant). We were expecting to hear nonsense yesterday and instead heard pretty good analysis and info. Shocked to hear it, in fact. Might have to revise the guy's nickname by the time that this is over. That's still a 'might', though.

Still have about eight other projects underway, including a major meeting today with people who are making my and M's lives a living hell (imagine five year olds with machetes running through a day care center. Yeah, it's like that, and we're in charge of the place). A late friend of mine drew a 2 x 2 matrix once with level of activity down one axis (busy, lazy) and intelligence (bright, dumb) on the other. He pointed to the resultant squares (people) and asked 'which one would you hire?'. I said, the busy intelligent one. Right, said he. 'Which one would you NOT hire?". The lazy dumb one? I guessed. "No", he responded. The correct answer was the busy dumb one.

That's kind of what I'm dealing with...but never mind, it keeps us off of the streets...

M is doing great again. Left early to meet someone downtown....but is doing fine at work and that's what I care about. Marc and P are doing fantastic and could not be prouder of them if they were my very own offspring.

Mom and Most Spoiled Cat In The Universe very happy....have to run to work....will visit later...hugs to all, Bridg

    Hey, did I steal your idea of songs titles? Oops! I'm always doin' that. So sorry. Brilliant idea though! Music to my ears. Good that it is all working out for you over there workwise. I'm envying that fine weather though.

    Hey Aggs definitely not stealing, wish everyone did that! Love it when people talk in music terms like Chris and Perry do!!

    We probably thought of the same thing at the same time. GMTA (great minds think alike)!!!
