A long week in the cube and a Valentines day to boot. If I don’t learn anything this week I’ll likely be out of work and/or single come this time next year.
- Apparently, to some of my coworkers, legal agreements are merely suggestions.
- I may have spent more time driving this week than in the cube. Hence, learning I’m not cut out to be a trucker. But, if I were, my rig would be blue and have more lights than a Griswold house at Christmas – trucker bling.
- Safeway’s flowers on Valentine’s night are surprisingly good. Related…
- Trying to convince the Mrs that Valentine’s Day isn’t a “real” holiday because government workers don’t have the day off is a losing proposition before I even formed the thought in my brain.
- Driving ice-picks into my ear drums is more appealing than forgetting my noise canceling headphones on a day when Cubicle George and WikiWally are having a verbal equivalent of cock fight in cubeville.
- I love dark chocolate and it goes quite well with a good whiskey.
- The amount of effort people put into NOT doing their job would likely be enough to actually do their job and someone else’s at the same time.
- There should be bonus points for actually humping on hump day.
- I’m not sure how, but I seem to have mastered the ability to talk for 15-20 minutes straight, having no clue what I said, and not eliciting any questions in return.
It’s a skill really.
- Clearly the educational gods are punishing me for not in much effort during high school chemistry by forcing me to help CV jr. with his chemistry homework.
- Dreams about punching certain coworkers in the nose are very satisfying, but I’m guessing not as satisfying as actually punching certain coworkers in the nose.
- Followers who engage and comment make me smile. Thank you all – you know who you are.
Turns out it IS a 3-day President’s weekend in my world and I’m going to enjoy every moment of it. I hope you enjoy your weekend as well.
