In my life…

Difficult times ahead in the workplace. Found out from the immediate boss that the big boss seems to think I do nothing at work. heh. So, starting tomorrow, I will be re implementing log sheets in the programming department. Something that shows time spent on projects, jobs done, etc. My only gripe is that the reason I stopped doing the logs in the first place was that it took 30 minutes out of every day, in 3-5 minute nibbles at a time.

I wonder what the big boss is going to say when he sees that there are folks doing 10-16 hour a day shifts because he won’t authorize new personnel? Or for that matter vacation time in the near future, because nobody can be spared?

All it will take is one person to quit for the whole department to be brought to the floor. Am I that person? Better question, is Kev? I feel that if either of us left tomorrow, that the company would take a crippling financial blow from lost work, and one that it probably couldn’t recover from. If only some company would sneak up on Kev and offer him 60k or so to leave, I’m sure he’d do it in a heartbeat. I’m keeping my eyes open… Perhaps a more respectable and respecting job is on the horizon. I’d like to go back to doing library work.. I hope that my application went ok up north. I haven’t heard from them, perhaps I’ll call them tomorrow.

In related news, another fun person left us the other day. Joel is the latest in a long list of goodly folks that went west in the footsteps of Bheesham, Tuan, and Paul. Competent people who saw fit to get out while the getting was good.

Perhaps I can convince the girl I’m interested in to adopt me as a resident poet and worshipper of her….

“You’ll regret being so damn abusive when the electric UFO gods transphase in from Dimension 10 to appoint me manager of the universe.”

You are walking down a country road. It is a quiet afternoon. You look up and far, far down the road you see someone walking toward you. You are surprised to have seen someone so far away. But, you keep walking, expecting nothing more than a friendly nod as you pass. He gets closer. You see he has bright orange hair. He is closer–a white satin suit spotted with colored dots. Closer–a painted white face and red lips. You and he are fifty yards apart. You, and a full-fledged clown holding a bicycle horn are twenty yards apart. You approach on the lonely country road. You nod. He honks, and passes.

Since I’m from Florida.

a few things…

1. On behalf of the state… sorry about that… but you really should’ve gotten a better group of people to do the counting. Miami is infamous for stuffing ballot boxes, theft and outright fraud when it comes to collecting votes. The only honest thing to do would be to do it again, with non-biased folks at the help. No more talk about the vote from this little lorax. (for now. maybe again when it’s not so beaten into the ground.)

2. I don’t believe I’ve never seen this resource! How really amazingly uber-spiffy!

Howdunits. hmm… maybe I’ll do a mystery soon.

For the sweepy ones out there…

Toora, loora, loora
Hush, now, don’t you cry
Ah,
Toora, loora, loora

Toora, loora, loora
It’s an Irish lullaby

Over in Killarney, many years ago
My mother sang this song to me in tones so sweet and low
Just a simple little ditty in her good old Irish way
And I’d give the world if she could sing that song to me this day

Toora, loora, loora

Toora, loora, loora
Hush, now, don’t you cry
Ah,

Interests!

wow…

This person likes Everything I do! Including things in a wack code that only I know about!

An evil twin?

A stalker?

kind of weird, because I think odds are good they’re not interested in a couple of my entries, unless they’re a total social duplicate. 🙂 silly things, like being a boy I believe, and am flattered that was enjoyed enough to take and add…. that’s what interests are about. other interests, like cej, cookie belcher, and numerous others. I know for a fact that the interest harvester has no idea what it’s about, so it strikes me as sort of wacky. I’d love to discuss what the reason they have for having gort, nikto, and marada as different entries, and who cathi and dave are to him. 🙂 I suspect odds are really slim for having all 1029 of my interests as your own. 🙂

other folks apparently harvested are petfish, loverlips, goatbird, rebequa, everyone, muse, and nashata.

Should this preson be confronted? I asked them what the deal was, and look forward to seeing the answer.

Good night, good folks.

I’ll leave you with some factoids. Provided by “Did you know?” copyright 1988, compiled by Max Zedelmen.

Babies are born with 300 bones. An adult has 206.

Caligynephobia is the fear of beautiful women.

The strongest muscle in the human body is the tongue. (insert your own joke here)

An average man’s skin weighs about 6 pounds. (The average man (20 yrs. old +) weighs 180 pounds. The average woman weighs 152 pounds. ) – taken from a US Bias.

The minimum age for marriage for Italian girls was raised to 12 in 1892.

In Iceland, tipping in restaurants is an insult.

Isaac Newton died a virgin.

A man at rest will generate as much heat as a 100w lightbulb.

The glue on Israeli postage stamps is certified kosher.

Paul Winchell, who invented the artificial heart, was also the voice of Tigger in the Winnie The Pooh movies.

60% of all babies are named after a relative.

The sailfish is the fastest animal in water, which can travel at speeds up to 68 mph.

The United States has more prisoners than any other country with over 1.6 million. Russia is second with just over 1 million.

Women blink twice as much as men.

The celibacy requirement for priesthood was adopted in 1215.

I voted…

And it seemed that I was approximately 1/2 to 1/3 the average voting age here. (and I’m 31)

Oddly, there was no line, and I felt the tumbling sagebrush vibe of a ghost town when I went in there. all told, maybe 15 people working the voting area, (maybe 15 more pamphleteering, so I assume those all voted…) and about 4 old old folks, between 60 and 90, doing the voting thing.

Not a solid breakdown of the region, either. I expected more folks my age, and more ethnic diversity. More folks in general. I’ll be interested in seeing how many turned out.

I’m a little disappointed…. but the upside is that my vote counts for more. 🙂

My name is scotto… I speak for the trees…

Icon Inspired by Sweetalyssm…

my work net went up and down in the afternoon, to finally die at about 5:40. bah. missed chatting with my dearest tonight. rats. At least I got a fix earlier on. Got to vote today….

Remember when voting, be a friend to the trees.
Encourage others to do likewise and please–
Remind them that each of us must play our part,
and we must take the words of the Once-ler to heart:

“UNLESS someone like you who cares a whole awful lot,
Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”
