How you look can and will determine success
Today just as everyday since I got my new lead has been funny and sad at the same time. Syd and I were in a Birthday meeting for my boss and my lead was asked to cut the cake. It was almost like he was the center of attention as he stepped forward and you could hear the high school whispers in the background. Syd and I shared a small snicker (thanks a lot Mills) but then I started to...
Subsumed by the Swarm
mills: It is hardly possible to be lonelier than one is when in a crowd of strangers; it makes the loneliness of solitude seem pleasant by comparison. These business trips are like odysseys of alienation for me: I am surrounded at all turns by people who seem like caricatures, hard-charging management thugs, acidly-critical office vipers, and then always the great hordes of cubicle dwellers. In...
Have you ever had a day at the office when all everyone did was complain? I have things to bicker about but I often hold it in. I’m faced with “Susie sob story” or “Billy bicker” all friggin day. It’s bad enough that we have to deal with the office politics but then we have to listen to the moans and groans of pampered wusses that make the beds they have to lay...
billydalto: frankb:The long-awaited video for “Smell Yo Dick” is finally here! Amazing! I didn’t plan to but I watched the entire video. It taught me a lot about relationships. I’ll be damned
My oldest will be 15 in about 20 minutes!
Why do these women catch such a hard time? Older men snag younger women all the time. I was out with one of my young attractive male friends (99% of my friends are, I mean look at Mills).He was getting “the eye” from every woman in the coffee shop, and I heard someone say “See black women can be cougars too.” Ok now this was wrong on so many levels but I’ll stick to...
all of a sudden I started getting a lot of crazy emails like “Men your women would love this vibrator!” or “Please claim your $50,000”. What gives? Everyone brags about the wonderful spam blocker associated with various sites but somehow, someway I get the trash all the time. Anyway, let me go see about this $50,000 :)
It has a way of creeping up on you. I’ve been feeling it coming and going for weeks but somehow I’d been doing a pretty good job of keeping it at bay. Last night I failed miserably. Thursday and Friday I partied hard. I know people thought I was just having fun but I was running. Running away from all the pain I’ve been feeling inside. After I left all my friends and the buzz...
sydvish: (via madeupmemories) Wow, what a coincidence! I just got home from an engagement party that was nicer than my actual wedding, and (surprise surprise) the band played this song! I wasn’t on the dance floor yet, but Allison and I chair danced.. Anyway, I love Earth, Wind, and Fire, and I really love dance parties!!! Thanks Mills, for emailing this to me!
The office hootch
I laughed myself into a tissy because everyone assumed that I selected my new hire because he’s attractive. When did I become the office hootch? Next time someone asks me about it I’m going to look at them like I’m sly and say “bom chica wah wah.” ignorant questions sometimes deserve ignorant answers.
No good deed goes unpunished...
Ever hear that quote? The shit is SO true. I had to write someone up that I’d been verbally warning for weeks. I finally realized that it took more than that to stop the behavior so I wrote him up. Of course he used all sorts of excuses like this isn’t his normal behavior…um yeah… So anyway My boss gets wind of this and blows a gasket and asks the guy if he really wanted to...
OK so today took the cake, I wanted to just lay down and not get up. I’ve decided to go out and try to have some fun tonight. I won’t let myself fall back into my old habits.
OK so my life has to be being taped from some sort of reality comedy/drama. Then all this shit might make sense.
Today was simply a big ball of awkward! Do you know how hard it is to tell people how great they are (and they were) but still say you weren’t the one chosen? I’d say it was a learning experience. Thank goodness all parties involved handled it in a professional manner. My oldest is going though the very painful stage of “What’s wrong with me?” you know that feeling...
