Oh I can't resist!

I like to dream yes, yes, right between my sound machine
On a cloud of sound I drift in the night
Any place it goes is right
Goes far, flies near, to the stars away from here

Well, you don't know what we can find
Why don't you come with me little girl
On a magic carpet ride
You don't know what we can see
Why don't you tell your dreams to me
Fantasy will set you free
Close your eyes girl
Look inside girl
Let the sound take you away

Last night I held Aladdin's lamp
And so I wished that I could stay
Before the thing could answer me
Well, someone came and took the lamp away
I looked around, a lousy candle's all I found

Well, you don't know what we can find
Why don't you come with me little girl
On a magic carpet ride
Well, you don't know what we can see
Why don't you tell your dreams to me
Fantasy will set you free
Close your eyes girl
Look inside girl
Let the sound take you away[i]

Hail all!
Nice carpet!
Y'know.. I debated doing the Aladdin riff.. but instead.. what comes to mind is a story told by author Harlan Ellison, about a hot date, at her parent's place, and an immaculate white carpet... I can't do justice to it myself... it's in an essay titled "The three most important things in life..." in at least one or two of his books.. I don't remember which offhand (and I'm too comfy to go and check right now...).

what *I* want to know about.. are those *socks* on the carpet.... :wink:

Wonder whose *those* are? :twisted:

/me rolls back a corner of the carpet and inscribes the floor beneath with the Sacred Chao of Discordia, then replaces the corner..

"There", he said... "that'll make it ever so much easier to invoke folk"

Hail Eris, All Hail Discordia! (befriend the Chaos- BE the chaos... make it work *for* thee!)

hmm.. they look like Dedeley's socks to me.... :P

See? Invoked already!

Ok, M'lady.. let's put it this way.. see that corner over *there*- where the Sacred Chao is inscribed 'neath the carpet? (where I just came forth from -if ILM gets the effect right...)

*that's* where you can expect me to appear.. so mayhaps you might not want to be *standing/lying/lounging* right there when invoking me... because only the Goddess knows what'd happen if we had *two* bodies there at the same time... heh, heh, heh :wink:
(especially without sox, or other garments...)

Nuf' said?

Can I still thread jack even though this is the magic carpet???
Well, I'm going to. Just try and stop me now. :lol:
I'm buying a house. I just have to wait for the closing, which can't get here soon enough. And I'm really excited. I picked out colors for my kitchen and livingroom and so on. I even picked up a new bed for my dog because I figured her old one was just too worn out. I just needed to babble about the fact that I'm buying my first house and am super excited! Any tips on what to expect the first year and any ideas of common pitfalls to watch out for?

Yes, don't buy anything for the house until you have the keys in your hot little hand. Buying things for the house before the sale is final could bugger up you getting the house. I know a few people that this has happened to.

All right, move over, those were MY socks on the carpet. Right on top of the Corner of Chaos. And yes, I know the consequences of sitting on that spot.

"Joy of Sox?" snerf. The muse of laughter is cringing at that one. I think someone owes us some Toblerone and other melted goodies.

I missed the changing of the guard, er, forum, from magic bus to magic carpet. Went to bed and missed all the fun. Such is the story of my life. And yes, I have been hit by a bus, too.

What ho! Is that an aardvark I see?

Dedeley

"aardvark? Sox?" said /me emerging from the Corner of Chaos...

Hmmm.. how to make amends... I know! No one has yet provided verse or entertainment...

(/me muses...)

Miguel de Cervantes: I shall impersonate a man. His name is Alonso Quijana, a country squire no longer young. Being retired, he has much time for books. He studies them from morn till night and often through the night and morn again, and all he reads oppresses him; fills him with indignation at man's murderous ways toward man. He ponders the problem of how to make better a world where evil brings profit and virtue none at all; where fraud and deceit are mingled with truth and sincerity. He broods and broods and broods and broods and finally his brains dry up. He lays down the melancholy burden of sanity and conceives the strangest project ever imagined - -to become a knight-errant, and sally forth into the world in search of adventures; to mount a crusade; to raise up the weak and those in need. No longer will he be plain Alonso Quijana, but a dauntless knight known as Don Quixote de La Mancha!

...Cue the song!

(/me returns through the Corner of Chaos to the bookshop.. "Sell the books, sell the books...")

And what dragons doest thou seek to slay this day & what faire maidens doest thou wish to rescue - M'Lord? Does the heart race at the sight of the turning arms of the windmill? Those mighty dragon arms which reach out to battle our brave knight.. Does he draw quick the sword that rests cradled to his thigh - swinging wildly into the balmy air, forging forth unto his quest and destiny? Does he venture forth to find and rescue the faire maiden held captive within the dragons breast? Or does the brave knight take flight upon his fine steed and race into the sunset?

/me sneaks back in momentarily...

To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go

To right the unrightable wrong
To love pure and chaste from afar
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star

This is my quest
To follow that star
No matter how hopeless
No matter how far

To fight for the right
Without question or pause
To be willing to march into Hell
For a heavenly cause

And I know if I'll only be true
To this glorious quest
That my heart will lie peaceful and calm
When I'm laid to my rest

And the world will be better for this
That one man, scorned and covered with scars
Still strove with his last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable star

"sell the books.. sell the books..." (Whistles "Little bird...little bird...")

Morghan
01-21-2005, 11:10 AM
What risque question, dear?


Hummmm.. risque'.... umm.. m'dear -- would this bring to mind anything or maybe inspire a "FEVER"? *giggle*

Never know how much I love you
Never know how much I care
When you put your arms around me
I get a fever that's so hard to bear

You give me fever, when you kiss me
Fever when you hold me tight
Fever in the morning
Fever all through the night

Sun lights up the daytime
Moon lights up the night
My eyes light up when you call my name
'Cause I know you're gonna treat me right

Everybody's got the fever
That is something you should know
Fever isn't such a new scene
Fever started long ago


Now that song's gonna be stuck in my head all day.... (ARGH)

Grrrrrr.......

01-21-2005, 11:13 AM

Darn you all, now I have this song running through my head.........

DON QUIXOTE / Gordon Lightfoot

Through the woodland, through the valley
Comes a horseman wild and free
Tilting at the windmills passing
Who can the brave young horseman be
He is wild but he is mellow
He is strong but he is weak
He is cruel but he is gentle
He is wise but he is meek
Reaching for his saddlebag
He takes a battered book into his hand
Standing like a prophet bold
He shouts across the ocean to the shore
Till he can shout no more

I have come o’er moor and mountain
Like the hawk upon the wing
I was once a shining knight
Who was the guardian of a king
I have searched the whole world over
Looking for a place to sleep
I have seen the strong survive
And I have seen the lean grown weak

See the children of the earth
Who wake to find the table bare
See the gentry in the country
Riding off to take the air

Reaching for his saddlebag
He takes a rusty sword into his hand
Then striking up a knightly pose
He shouts across the ocean to the shore
Till he can shout no more

See the jailor with his key
Who locks away all trace of sin
See the judge upon the bench
Who tries the case as best he can
See the wise and wicked ones
Who feed upon life’s sacred fire
See the soldier with his gun
Who must be dead to be admired

See the man who tips the needle
See the man who buys and sells
See the man who puts the collar
On the ones who dare not tell
See the drunkard in the tavern
Stemming gold to make ends meet
See the youth in ghetto black
Condemned to life upon the street

Reaching for his saddlebag
He takes a tarnished cross into his hand
Then standing like a preacher now
He shouts across the ocean to the shore
Then in a blaze of tangled hooves
He gallops off across the dusty plain
In vain to search again
Where no one will hear

Through the woodland, through the valley
Comes a horseman wild and free
Tilting at the windmills passing
Who can the brave young horseman be
He is wild but he is mellow
He is strong but he is weak
He is cruel but he is gentle
He is wise but he is meek

Apropos
01-21-2005, 01:17 PM
OK, so how do you explain your morning...

I work for an audio/video company. We have a regular loading dock. Most "normal" trucking companies, just back up their rigs and we have a tailgate that comes out over the truck bed and everything is smooth and sweet. UNTIL the delivery from Hell. We are getting a 50" inch plasma for an install for a VIP from Chicago (think..and that's the rest of the story). So the delivery man comes thru the back door and tells me he has my shipment. Still sight unseen, I yell at him that I will be in the back. I open up our big doors, expecting to see the back of a rig (which I have a bad habit of writing grafitti on, usually GO WINGS), and there is a van. A small passenger van about 10 feet from the dock. And standing next to the van doors, is (sporks need to be ready) is a man. Not just any man. The most hairiest man I have ever seen. And I worked with customs at one time with all kinds of truck drivers, so I can say I have seen a lot of men. Now, I live near Chicago. It's cold here this time of year. But Mr. Neaderthal driver has no coat on. Just his "uniform" that looked like it was about 10 sizes too small and had exactly two butttons left in working order. Thru all the places buttons should go, was hair. I mean, carpet. Black shag carpeting. It popped out and covered where a neck should have been. It covered arms. It covered this huge round protrusion of a belly. I kid you not, It hid his belt buckle. This man didn't need a coat. He was covered in fur. Now, I know some people have that disease, but his face and head were baby butt bald. This man was an ape. But still I needed that plasma. And this dock/van equation was not working. So I politely told him it would be better to bring it around front thru the doors since he had no real truck. He assured me, he could lift it up on the dock. If Samson's hair was any indication of strength, this guy should be able to lift the van too. Well, needless to say, he got it half way up the expanse and complained his back went out and he starts to tilt. I see a plasma heading to the ground jump off the dock and with all the grace in the world, land on my ass. But I managed to get up and to the plasma in time. I hold onto it and Mr. King Kong says he will move around back and lift it up onto the dock. So I watch him proceed, inch by inch around the back and about 5 inches from me. and he begins to raise everything above his head to the height of the dock. And as we almost have it level and on the dock, his pants dive to his knees. Not just a slip, but a crash. There is no butt to cushion the blow. His belt buckle is now in clear view and acted like a sinker on a fishing line. And just my luck, he decided somewhere along the course of dressing, that today was the day to go commando. Now, I know he's a he. But I couldn't prove it. There was no bunny in the forest. There was no bird among the trees. There was no thorn among the bush. And before everyone says I looked...pahleezah...who doesn't. It's inevitable when the jeans drop, the eyes of the person watching looks down. Now, granted it was cold. But this man was SO hairy, his potter disappeared. The hair continued down the legs and disappeared among the folds of his jeans. Well, he of couse was embarrassed and let go of the plasma to pick up the puddle of jeans. And, yes, I was left there holding the damn thing and trying with every muscle I had, not to laugh or cry or thrrow up. Needless to say, I can't hold 257 pounds over my head and down crashed the plasma. And I now have to fill out a damaged good claim explaining to the trucking company how exactly this happened.

My other favourite "sexy" song aside from "Fever":

Hey Phoe! /me sings: Where's all my soul sistas/Lemme hear ya'll flow sistas/Hey sista, go sista, soul sista, flow sista/Hey sista, go sista, soul sista, go sista...

He met Marmalade down in old Moulin Rouge
Struttin' her stuff on the street
She said, "Hello, hey Joe!
You wanna give it a go?"
Gichie, Gichie, ya ya dada
Gichie, Gichie, ya ya here
Mocha Chocalata ya ya
Creole Lady Marmalade
Voulez vous coucher avec moi ce soir
Voulez vous coucher avec moi
He sat in her boudoir while she freshened up
Boy drank all that Magnolia wine
All her black satin sheets, suede's, dark greens
Gichie, Gichie, ya ya dada
Gichie, Gichie, ya ya here
Mocha Chocalata ya ya
Creole Lady Marmalade
Voulez vous coucher avec moi ce soir Voulez vous coucher avec moi
Touch of her skin feeling silky smooth
Color of cafe au lait alright
Made the savage beast inside roar until he cried,
More-more-more
Now he's back home doin' 9 to 5
Livin the grey flannel life
But when he turns off to sleep memories creep,
More-more-more
Gichie, Gichie, ya ya dada
Gichie, Gichie, ya ya here
Mocha Chocalata ya ya
Creole lady Marmalade
Voulez vous coucher avec moi ce soir
Voulez vous coucher avec moi
Voulez vous coucher avec moi ce soir
Voulez vous coucher avec moi

:shock: :rotfl: Reality is so much stranger than fiction.

I fill out damage claims with UPS all the time. Edit out the reasons why he does look like King Kong and the frightened turtle hiding in the underbrush part and you've got yourself a claim if I've ever heard one. Maybe if you explain it just as you did here, you might get extra for the excruciating eye damage you suffered.

Dear Claim Representitive,

No shit, there I was....

Lady Sarah
01-21-2005, 03:55 PM
OK, so how do you explain your morning...

trust me - you do not want to ask me that. I'm still in shock over what's happened to me in the last handful of hours. :shock: doesn't even cover it.

:stunned: was me in the VPs office when the news came down.

simmer down, I'm still employed. Just for another division in the company with a job I didn't ask for, didn't apply for and not sure I want.

More to come, details later when I'm conscious enough to explain and can remember.

neck rub? peese? Where's a good slaveboy when you need one...

/me hugs Sarah. We can be in shock together.

I called the trucking company to see what I really needed for a claim. She said for me to be as accurate as I could be. So I copied it word for word from my post. Faxed that over to her. She called me back in hysterics. She said she knew which driver, too. His name...I kid you not...Nick Nahre. Pronounced NAIR. By the time her and I were done wondering if his middle name could be Oscar...N.O. Nahre, I was getting my claim number.

Hey no worries about the rash thing....
When we got our Boiler fixed there are a whole bunch of pipes that are not sealed every where and when the plummer dude turned the water on to fill the fricken boiler the pipes shot water every where!! Jeepers the water that came out was kinda green and smelled really sweet so I thought that it was anti freeze and I was soaked with the stuff as I was trying to cover the pipe with a trash bag. It turned out to be some wierd stuff like the juice in peaches. Yea I was reallly sticky for a really long time.

Tankies dear sistah-o-mine... this is turning into the day from hades.. my truck didn't stop with just one little item.. NOOoooo.. it has to create a St. Nicholas list.. no heat, service light on, something rubbing from the rear end, rpm's running high, engine chugging.. and can I find a mechanic to look at it today? nope, not gonna happen.. so here we go again - vehicle-less and my event is next weekend - with a list of stuff that needs done that makes my normal "honey-do" list short.... we discover this as we are at the storage unit going through 'pandora's box' trying to find one lousy cart - freezing our collective tushies off (as its what.. 11 degrees outside?) - only to jump in my truck to warm up and find.. wow.. its as cold in here as it is outside..

A British scientist and a Czech scientist had spent their whole lives studying the majestic grizzly bear. Each year, they petitioned their respective governments to allow them to go to Yellowstone to study these wondrous beasts. Finally, their request was granted and they immediately flew to NYC and then out West to Yellowstone. They reported to the local ranger station and were told that it was the grizzly mating season and it was much too dangerous to go out and study the animals. They pleaded that this was their only chance. Finally, the ranger relented. The Brit and the Czech were given cell phones and told to report in each and every day. For several days they called in, and then nothing was heard from the two scientists. The rangers mounted a search party and found the scientists' camp completely ravaged, but with no sign of the missing men. They then followed the trails of a male and a female bear. They found the female and decided they must kill the animal to find out if she had eaten the scientists because they feared an international incident. They killed the female and cut open the bear's stomach, but only found the remains of the Brit. One ranger turned to the other and said, "You know what this means, don't you?"

"Of course," the other ranger nodded. "The Czech is in the male."

Pretty dull actually.

I spent yesterday being the 'official hair holder' for Erin. She caught some sort of stomach bug and spent Thursday with her head in the toilet. Poor Oompa Loompa. However, around 4 pm she threw up one last time, declaired herself better and asked for something to eat. She was fine the rest of the evening. ~yay!~

So after I caught up with all my work that I missed, returned my phone calls etc. I had not much to do and didn't feel doing what there was to do.

So now, here we are, Hubby is on his computer playing World of Warcraft, I am on mine, and Erin is with her Grandparents. Yes, we could be using this time to spend it together <wink wink nudge nudge> but we rarely get time to just do our own stuff - sew, read, muck around on the computers - that it's nice to do it now. I have a nice glass of merlot next to me, an apple pie cooling on the stove upstairs and my world wide web open at my fingertips.

So, I would say my day is definatly on the upswing. :D

Hello goils. Also here for the night. I thought the furnance was fixed, but no - after the repair guy "fixed" the furnance, the blower within the furnace died. So I'm back to burning wood and since I have this rash on my face, my husband isn't taking me out dancing tonight. But something good did happen, my boss saw the rash on my face and asked me if I had health insurance. I told them I don't have any (I'm part-time and they thought I did have some type of insurance). After a few hours, they called me into the office and told me they were willing to pay for my health insurance - out of the blue just like that. That is nice of them.

Hi, all!

Definitely a weird day for most of us!

Sarah, my heart goes out to you. Good luck and keep us informed. :grouphug:

Where I work, Tilting at Windmills is written in the job descriptions. It's the one thing I excel at!

Sample performance appraisal: "Dedeley does an excellent job tilting at windmills, although it gets her nowhere, and really pisses us off. This is a positive thing, though, as it allows us to exercise our management muscles and retaliate in minor but annoying ways. This keeps us from actually doing any work, because we are so busy trying to screw her and the other people with a conscience that we don't actually accomplish anything. Which is a good thing. Die, Dedeley, die. Bwaaahhaahhhaaa."

Okay, I have a tendancy to think in pictures. I can visualize Appie's story happening. OMG, that was a riot. I only hope that you are okay, I hope your back didn't go out or hurt yourself when you landed on your "pride".

Sarah, I hope the promotion/transfer goes well for you.

Cass, warm healing thoughts go out to you & Poppet. Get better soon.

Artemisia, don't scratch the rash. It only makes it worse.
out it's poison sumac - yep, we burned it in the fireplace. Got it on my face, mouth and throat. Pay special attention to any breathing difficulties. If you notice any slight proble or discomfort, go to the HOSPITAL immediately!!!

My Mother is HIghly allergic to Poison Oak. She came in contact with it many years ago when my Grandparents were clearing their land & burned the brush. She didn't think about tending to the fire as long as she did not come in physical contact with the stuff. She ended up getting a rash in her mouth, throat, nose, under a porcelean tooth, under her eye lids. She was about 5 minutes away from no longer being my Mommy. My Grandmother rusher to the Hospital & they gave her MULTIPLE shots of epinephrine, steriods & what ever else to get her just to be able to open her eyes. This happened twice within a weeks time. The second time she showed up at the Hospital, the Dr. told her that the next flare up could kill her.
I'm allergic to the stuff, but not as severly as my Mom.
My Mom no longer goes out to my Grandparents house when they burn trash or brush.

My 'tea story' of the day. There is a small shop not far from my house called 'All Things UK'. It's run by a British woman (sidebar: for some reason, in my neck of the woods, there is a large population of expatriot Brits. ~shrug~)

Anyway...

I was in the shop to stock up on my Cadbury Fruit and Nut bars ~swoon~ and some tea, when we got into a discussion. "You ruddy Americans make the worst tea!" she exclaimed. "When I first moved here, I had to have my mum send some over." Of course, I had to let her know that when I was in London, it was my experience that the Brits. could not make a decent cup of coffee to save their soul.

Appie - loved your story! Get that claim filled!

I had a similar, if less exciting thing happen to me once. I was working in TX (apologies to any Texans here) and one of my suppliers was a good 'ol boy jerk who (1) refused to pay taxes because he thought they were unconstitutional - we had to pay him in cash because he didn't have a social sec # and no bank account, (2) belonged to the bible-thumping religion of the month club, (3) was a militia member who hinted that to belong to the miltia, one had to actually kill a minority, (4) lived in a large, steel building in OK that was provisioned for nuclear attack, (5) was a personal friend of the boss, which meant I HAD to deal with him, and (6) was always asking me to go out for a beer and see his firearm collection. He was a scary dude.

Anyway, he was in my office one day waiting for his check, and I had to open a package. It was tightly wrapped with tape, and I said something about needing an exacto knife to open it. "Never fear, sweetcheeks," says Mr. Redneck, "I got ya covered right here." He then proceeded to whip off his BELT. While we were alone. In a small office. I was frightened, had no clue what this yahoo was going to do. Turns out that his belt was actually a hiding place for a very large knife, and he simply opened the package nicely.

It was the first (and last) time I was ever frightened at seeing a man whip off his belt.

I'll have some tea - lot's of milk, no sugar please.

Mags - I LOVE Cadbury fruit and nut bars!!! They are better than Toblerones.

They seem to be making better coffee at some places in England. They use the coffee presses a lot now . . . . even though the coffee presses are French. We were in England two years ago - were in a little cafe when a customer complained about the coffee, and the proprietor yelled at him and refused to give him back his money. They actually called the Bobbies, who had to leave a protest of the Iraq war to attend to this heinous crime. And we were worried about being Americans in England right when the unpopular war started! Now we knew we'd be OK as long as we didn't criticize the coffee.

Tracy (Da BooKWench) and I were in London about a week before Bush's state visit. Alot of hub bub in the papers, but we never felt nervous being Americans.

Led to the most interesting situation though. Trace and I had been in a pub called The Silver Cross just South of Trafalgar Sq. As we were leaving the pub, we stopped to take a picture of the sign. So, we took the pic. and as we were giggling about it, we hear this voice from behind "You must be Americans, because the only people who take more pictures than Americans are Japaneese and you don't look Japaneese." There stood two guys about our age - not threatening or any thing, no bad vibes. Enter Richard and Sixer. Richard had a Michael Moore book under his arm. He asked if we were going anywhere special - Nope says we. "Well then, I would like to buy you a pint and talk to you for a bit." Wow we had a good time. Talked politics and nonsence in this small pub just down the alley from the Silver Cross. Richard was a die hard Moore fan and a Bush hater. Sixer was more laid back. It was a night that will never be forgotten!

Wood stove? Do you use it all winter instead of a regular furnace or is it temporary? We might end up replacing our furnance but my husband was actually playing with the idea of a wood stove and/or solar panels as a supplemental source of heat.

We primarily heat with wood. Inside the stove and part of the stovepipe are copper tubing that contain water. The heated water is what warms the water in the hot water tank. 99.999% of out hot water comes from the stove right now. There is alos a pump and switch that can be turned on to have the solar panels heat the water, but the stove is doing a much better job right now.

We do have a furnace back up for when the fire goes out, but its only set at 58 or 60 degrees. It usually only cycles on once or twice before one of us gets up and re-lights the stove.

I got out of the job with Mr. Redneck, and now work at a wonderful place (insert sarcasm) full of engineers in upstate NY. No one has taken their belt off near me yet. Most of them are sexless. Think pocket protectors and slide rules. Luckily, like seems to call to like, and there are some funny, smart, devilish people there who make it worthwhile. :twisted:

And so to bed . . . . little guy is not feeling well tonight. I love being a mom. He's still at the age (9) when a hug can still make a difference.

oh tea? Chai spice with sugar & milk? In a large mug? Pleeeease. I have just gotten back from Eugene. I had to go down the mountain to do an auto delinquency interview. That means if you are behind on your car payments, the financial institutions send someone like me to your front door to find out why. Todays chase was at the most unfriendly apartment complex I have ever been to. No one knew anyone else there. And the manager acted like I was a storm trooper or something.She was friendly at first, and then started getting antsy. (Kind of makes you wonder what is going on there doesn't it) And then to make mattersmore interesting, the manager's rottweiler was ,shall we say, very interested in me. He kept leaning hard up againest me. I finally did find out that the individual did live there. Now things get really interesting, as I am leaving the 2nd floor of the apartments, I almost stepped on a Texas sized cock roach.

Chai - boy that does sound good!

Just got back from the gas station a bit ago. It's cold outside. Just missed a major accident at the intersection too.

The gas station is about 1/2 a block from my house, so as I was coming to the intersection, I see the wreckers and such just pulling the cars into a parking lot. It was a pretty good crash too, by the looks of it. No one was injued either - good for them - just a bunch of glass and plastic everywhere.

01-21-2005, 10:46 PM
Well, biker, I wouldn't call it funny... remember, I spent most of the day in a daze and the last 6 hours have been nothing but a blur.

Everyone got their tea? I'im about to share my day with you. :stunned:

Picture it, 8 in the morning at a respectable home equity mortgage company, all is well despite having overslept - again... hemhem, as I said, It's a great morning and I'm gearing up for the 930 staff meeting (why the frell they insisted on having a staff meeting on a friday, I'll never understand...)... so one of the girls and I are in the kitchenette, I'm getting my Poor Man's Cafe Mocha (Read mug of coffee with packet of hot chocolate stirred in) and the CEO walks by. I get the elbow...

"Who's that?"

"That? Oh, that's *insert name here*, he's the 2nd in charge... arrogant SOB but a real lech. Eyes go right here all the time *motions to the gals and finishes up making coffee*

We wander down for the meeting in the FishBowl (read all glass wall Boardroom where everyone coming up and down the stairs can see you and makes a point of looking but not hiding that they're looking at you) and it's got to be the dullest hour so far - but wait, VP and AVP are late, so something's amiss......

and guess who's zoned out while trying to decipher figures and projections and budgets... :aok:

So, by the time we get back to our desks, we're all sleepy and it's 1030. About 1115-1130-ish, I get a call from the admin of one of our divisions, asking for my cube number.

what? :stunned: uhm, why? Moving? Sez who? Since when? yeah, you do that, you find out why I'm not in the loop and you just call me right back-oh and by the way, I'm going to see my manager about this. No sooner did I hang up and stand up than my manager comes hustling around the corner.

"Sarah, you and Jessica come with me into *insert name of VP here*'s office, we need to talk."

:stunned: oh shit. eye starts twitching and I can feel the neck start to stiffen like it always does in these situations. it's going to be an interesting meeting. last time my eye started twitching, I wound up on THIS team...

If you've *NEVER* seen me speechless, I wish you could have been there in said VP's office. My eyebrows were up in my hairline and my jaw was resting on my chest. The CEO (aforementioned tit-ogler) was outside of VP's office at 830 this morning - "This is happening today, I want your two strongest closers moved today.)

Say what whiteboy??

Apparently he was outside of the new homes sales division at 8 am this morning, speeding up their time frame by several months. The shift and move that was supposed to happen in Mid-April was happening NOW. This new home sales division has been trying to set up their own in house closing department for a while now. EVERYTHING has suddenly been kicked into high gear with the thumb of aforementioned lech CEO on everyone's head. He visited NHS VP at 8, my VP at 830 and a 920 he poked his head into the EVP's office and said "You can look at the numbers all you want, this deal is happening today. Do it."

OHHHHH so THAT's why VP and AVP were late to the meeting! Ohhhhh so THAT's why Jessica's in tears (she hates this division) and why I'm getting a phone call from the admin of said NHS division asking for my cubicle number so I can move... when? Monday? Do I have a choice? No? Are you going to pay me more? Well let's get NHS Ops VP in here so I can discuss salary, so long as I have no choice...

ohhhh scheize... what about my Repossession Sales Division?? Who's gonna do them? Train one of the new girls? Sure, with what files? none have come over today... Lunch? sure, I'll go to lunch... When am I moving again? And just HOW did everyone else find out about it in the span of an hour???

by the time I got back from lunch, took the new girl down to meet the sales staff I was effectively abandoning and got back to my desk, it was 4 and the VP of the NHS Division was chasing me down.

"Sarah, we got the IT tickets pushed through. Pack up your personal effects and move them over to our side."

Say what whiteboy?? Move? now? we're not supposed to move until Monday - you said so!!

You never realize just how much SHIT you have accumulated at your desk until you go to pack it all and move it. I called the house at 430 to tell my parents to go eat without me, I'd be home late. 730 I pulled into the driveway with a hamburger in hand.

holy craptastic batman, I'm tired. :faint:

Thanks for the info Cassandra. I'm glad to hear that a wood stove can do the job. I just told my hubby (during a commercial - he's watching his Friday Nite Sci-Fi shows) and he just told me he learned of a guy who designed his house especially for use with a wood stove. His utility bill was only $200/year, which interests my hubby because he is a ~thrifty~ guy.

*looks around hopefully* Hey, is there any of that Chai left? *holds teacup in both hands expectantly*

I'll see you guys tomorrow. As far as I know we are all set for the storm. Plenty of wood for the next few days, ect. Even though its only supposed to be about 6 inches. Heck my van (even with the repairs of late) can go thru that without a problem.

*giggle* Glad to see you fought the urge, Mags. :D

Chai... mmmm now there's a drink I can get into. I like my coffee, sure, but Chai is Heaven!

Ok so we have this Winter Storm Warning going on right now - supposed to get almost a foot of the white powdery stuff, starting tomorrow around 11-ish. I'm thinking it'd be a good chance to snuggle up on the couch with Artos, who shall be arriving around 9-ish, and watch movies & pop popcorn. Making dinner tonight, I reach for the full gallon of milk that I'm *positive* we have. Uhm... sumpin's wrong here - where's the milk? Turns out that the Mini's decided to have cereal as their after-school snack, and we're almost out. *grumble* Great - now I have to go to the flippin grocery store... at 7 at night, the eve before a storm! :roll: I don't really enjoy grocery shopping anyway, let alone in a crowded one. I get there, the lot is jammed, no carts, wind whipping down the rows....

So I get inside, and head for the milk... I swear I heard an echo. The entire case is empty. Not just low stock, E M P T Y! OK, I suppose I can get some at the convenience store across the street. So, while I'm there, I figure I should get the fresh produce... *cue Good, Bad, & Ugly theme music* I felt like I was walking into a ghost town. I mean c'mon... produce is picked through too? *grumble*

Anyway, I finish the shopping and head out, still needing milk. Convenience store... no gallons (which with 4 growing Mini's is the size I usually need to buy) but they do have halfs. Although not many. So I grab 6 of em. - The LAST 6. sheesh - Gotta love Pennsyltuckey - one flake and they clean out the stores.

Anyway, I'm home now, plopped in puter chair, catching up with my wonderful friends here, warm & toasty, Minis are healthy & snuggled in bed, and I'm counting the hours til Artos is here. Ahhh... yup - life is good again! :grouphug:

-sigh- She is going to stay home tomorrow and rest if I have to tie her to the couch. (yeah, like I could do that)

Dedeley
01-21-2005, 11:03 PM
Oh, Sarah, that's horrible. At least you still have a job. And they said you were their strongest closer - that's positive, at least.

I'm sitting here in tears myself. I just received an e-mail from my "best friend" with a message that really hurt. She was just promoted to be a manager, and I knew that our relationship had to change. I didn't expect it to stay exactly the same - obviously, there are things she can't tell me now, and quite frankly, I don't want to know. But I thought we were trying to retain a friendship. First it was "we can't eat lunch together anymore." Then it was "we probably shouldn't go shopping anymore." Now, an e-mail that she knew - or should have known - would hurt me. And it hurts. Boy, does it hurt.

Thanks gals... and biker too. amazing i still had time to give you some advice - evenif i did have to go get the answers for you. hope it all works out.

Yeah, I'm OK with it. ~S~ Thanks again. What was flooring me was the sudden and swift high gear that everyone accelerated into once the CEO decided that he was playing muscal employees today. I even got called into a meeting in his office with my VP so he could ensure that we all knew why he was doing this and that we'd do our job.

yeah, I'll do my job, keep the asshat sales manager off of mine and my co-worker's backs and we'll be just fine.

Yes, there's a 99.9% chance of a payraise (as IF I wouldn't complain and loudly about it too if I didn't get it... ;) ) and they are going to restructure our bonus system to fit their numbers. This is a good thing, because I also found out today that the current team I'm on is going to be changing in the next few months - more auditing and I despise auditing.

with a passion. :evil: I'd rather kiss a dead moose's ass than do any auditing.

did I mention I despise auditing?? :lol:

Again, thanks for the tea, the rum, the glenlivet (shudder) and the well wishes. It'll work out. it has to.

Warning: Rant and sexual language!

Woke up this morning to find an e-mail from my little brother in law. OK, he ain't little anymore - he's now around 26 years old. But when I met him, he was 11 yrs old, and a sweetie pie. We were like second parents to him - hopefully the cooler version. He and I were particularly close - somehow I wound up being the one to tell him the facts of life ("De, what's an orgasm?"), and helping him through the first girlfriend-breakup, pimply angst stages. In short, he is the little brother I never had while I was growing up.

So the e-mail has a link to a website that he's developing with his friends. He's a budding comic writer. And one of the comics is making fun of the pet names that couples come up with for themselves. My baby brother came up with the phrase "You're my piston-pounding, moustached c--t rider." NNNNOOOOOOOOOOO! My baby!

She's playing with my cat.. Poor Kit Cat. She looks much better, cheeks aren't as red. Still stuffy, but not coughing nearly as badly.

I am glad that Alex if feeling better. This stuff is horrible.

Is everyone in the Notheastern area ready for the storm? I sure hope that CTRF's Winterfest is able to still go on.

Well, here in the Detroit area, we have a good old fashion blizzard going on right now. It's just shy of 9 am local time, so if you guys don't have snow yet, I assure you, if the storm does not dissapate, it's comming.

DD, I am sorry to hear about your e mail from your friend. :smooch: It will all work out. Cass, it's good to hear that the bitty has some energy back (I feel sorry for the cat though! Hee Hee). Hopefully, she's on the mend.

Cass,
I looked at the VTRF site online. I like the image of the girl with the little raptor on the first page, maybe a falcon? I bet it is a nice fair with temps in the 80s and trees, huh? How many years has it been going on? Glad the kiddo is rested some. Hopefully, the worst is over.

It is usually in the 70's and 80's and is wonderful. I believe that the faire has been around for about 5 years,. They used to be at the Molly Stark State Park, before moving to the Guilford Fair Grounds. Hopefully the next move will be to the Hard Site.

I LOVE it. Its a wonderful family to belong to, and so much fun.

Snow? We had ice here this morning. Does that count for anything? I was outside at 5:30 warming up the car to take my older son to McDonalds. His boy scout troop is meeting there before going to Klondike Derby at Diamond Lake. They are going to camp in the snow (if it is still there. We have had some warmish days lately) and compete in some events. Nothing like standing outside in the cold while a bunch of boys try to get everthing together. First thing I did when I got back home was crawl back into bed and go back to sleep. I have chai spice tea going if anyone wants some.

I would LOVE some, if you don't mind.

Before I laid down for a nap, the livingroom was nice and toasty. I get up and its 60, and no wood in the wood box. I also think that somehow the circut popped that goest to the furnace. He waited till I got up to go out and get the wood. :roll: Go figure.

Anyone have some honey I can put in the tea? I was told that it can help with coughing.

Way ahead of you. I am currently sleeping in heavy thermal knit bloomers (3/4 length) and a draw string peasant blouse made out of the same fabric. And I wear thermal knit petticoats under my skirts and dresses. I keep much warmer that way.

Have as much as you would like. It's green chai spice. Ummm, honey and chai tea in my experience don't go well together. The honey makes it taste a bit funky. But when either I or my kids get sick, we practically live on chai tea. But the best thing for coughs I have found is real horehound candy. It also seems to help with chest congestion too.

It is suppsed to drop down to the 30's later this evening though. Might even freeze overnight. It's that Northeren storm that y'all are pushing South.

Guess that puts me sort of on your 'we gets them we does precioussss' list. We went from having ice to having beautiful weather. I was actually outside on my balcony barefoot this afternoon. And the warmer weather seems to be holding on a bit. I was just outside without a jacket. And even better, the air is breathable. (A lot of people have woodstoves for heat up here.And the air gets held down in the town. I prefer to breathe my oxygen not chew it.) But the weather is supposed to be getting wetter. (Yes I know I live in Oregon I should expect it. But no one says I have to like it.) No sir that is not a tan. That is rust from all the rain we get. :)

Hi, Mags! Thanks for the drink.

Today is much better - made up with my friend, watched Harry Potter all evening. I am beginning to understand why some of us like Mr. Malfoy . . . . . still, Snape remains my fave. Something about the messy hair.

And Malfoy. *sigh* I remember seeing the stills of Malfoy Sr. before the film came out. With his long blonde hair, he looked more like Legolas. I remember thinking I never pictured Malfoy looking like that. Then I saw the film. Oh my heavens to betsy. Melt, drool, pant, pant, quiver, quiver, thud. :D

If you remember the original Hollywood Squares and its comics, this will bring a tear to your eyes. These great questions and answers are from the days when "Hollywood Squares" game show responses were spontaneous and clever. Peter Marshall was the host asking the questions.



Q. Do female frogs croak?
A. Paul Lynde: If you hold their little heads under water long enough.



Q. If you're going to make a parachute jump, at least how high should you be?
A. Charley Weaver: Three days of steady drinking should do it.



Q. True or False, a pea can last as long as 5,000 years.
A. George Gobel: Boy, it sure seems that way sometimes.



Q. According to Cosmo, if you meet a stranger at a party and you think that he is attractive, is it okay to come out and ask him if he's married?
A. Rose Marie: No, wait until morning.



Q. Which of your five senses tends to diminish as you get older?
A. Charley Weaver: My sense of decency.



Q. In Hawaiian, does it take more than three words to say "I Love You"?
A. Vincent Price: No, you can say it with a pineapple and a twenty.



Q. What are "Do It," "I Can Help", and "I Can't Get Enough"?
A. George Gobel: I don't know, but it's coming from the next apartment.



Q. As you grow older, do you tend to gesture more or less with your hands while talking?
A. Rose Marie: You ask me one more growing old question Peter, and I'll give you a gesture you'll never forget.



Q. Paul, why do Hell's Angels wear leather?
A. Paul Lynde: Because chiffon wrinkles too easily.



Q. Charley, you've just decided to grow strawberries. Are you going to get any during the first year?
A. Charley Weaver: Of course not, I'm too busy growing strawberries.



Q. In bowling, what's a perfect score?
A. Rose Marie: Ralph, the pin boy.



Q. It is considered in bad taste to discuss two subjects at nudist camps. One is politics, what is the other?
A. Paul Lynde: Tape measures.



Q. When you pat a dog on its head he will wag his tail. What will a goose do?
A. Paul Lynde: Make him bark?



Q. According to Ann Landers, is their anything wrong with getting into the habit of kissing a lot of people?
A. Charley Weaver: It got me out of the army.



Q. While visiting China, your tour guide starts shouting "Poo! Poo! Poo!" What does this mean?
A. George Gobel: Cattle crossing.



Q. Back in the old days, when Great Grandpa put horseradish on his head, what was he trying to do?
A. George Gobel: Get it in his mouth.



Q. When a couple have a baby, who is responsible for its sex?
A. Charley Weaver: I'll lend him the car, the rest is up to him.



Q. Jackie Gleason recently revealed that he firmly believes in them and has actually seen them on at least two occasions. What are they?
A. Charley Weaver: His feet



Q. According to Ann Landers, what are two things you should never do in bed?
A. Paul Lynde: Point and Laugh.

Hear me now, oh thou bleak and unbearable world
Thou art base and debauched as can be!
And a knight with his valors all bravely unfurled
Now hurls down his gauntlet to thee!

I am I, Don Quixote,
The Lord of LaMancha,
My destiny calls, and I go!
And the wild winds of fortune
Shall carry me onward ... To wither so ever they blow ...
Wither so ever they blow ...
Onward to glory I go!

There is another version of "Roll Your Leg Over." It's the male version. Just a couple:

I wish all the girls were like holes in the road.
I'd be a dump truck and dump in my load.

I wish all the girls were like telephone poles.
I'd be a squirrel and stuff nuts in their holes.

I wish all the girls were like trees in the forest.
I'd be a woodsman and split their clixxxxx.

I wish all the girls were like little red foxes.
I'd be a hunter and shoot up their boxes.

I also have a big pan of sweet yelloe cornbrean. Anyone would like to join me & Dad for dinner? I think I have enough for lunch tomorrow & many days afterwards.
The weather has gotten a bit cooler today, temps in the low 40's soon to drop to the low 30's.
Hope everyone stays as warm as possible, there is some chili & cornbread if anyone is interested.

Haven't seen that one, but Extreme Home Makeover is just starting.

I even have hubby trained; "Hey honey, Ty has his shirt off, just so you know." :wink:

Now, where's that one of me in the clown nose?

Maybe I should have put up the one of me dressed in my Klingon uniform then? :twisted:

Bran has the chili, I have pulled pork. Tea is over that way. We have a blanket and a few pillows. Sound like a picnic to me!

I'm watching De-lovely tonight. Has anyone seen it?

I almost got out that old Cinderella with Lesley Anne Warren.

Dee.. have you ever seen "Slipper and the Rose" -- it is an excellent story of Cinderella - and presented in a more "period" - this is how it would have been - fashion..

And yes.. I agree - they do tend to seed beliefs that someday Prince Charming will come and take you away - however, as much as reality slaps me solidly (and painfully) in the face every day -its those "fantasies" that help me get through each day.. ;)

Klingons! I have a thing for Klingons! The men are soooo sexy, aren't they?
I sat next to a lady on a plane one day - she was the stunt double for the female lead Klingon on one of the shows - can't remember which one it was. We had a wonderful conversation, and it made a really boring flight go very quickly. She gave me a picture of herself in costume.

I will have to check out "Slipper and the Rose." Thanks for mentioning it.

Love it! Thanks, Morghan. You look great in it! But better with a sword, I'll bet.
