A divine Feelsky



Happy Lunar New Year everyone!

Well, where I work the old uber-boss is gone and the new one is coming. It's ironic, don't ya think, that we are waving goodbye to the Year of the Pig and are now welcoming the Year of the Rat.

I had a meeting late this afternoon with red-headed lady with low-heeled, sensible shoes from our Financial Department today. How did it go? It STARTED with her explaining that the V.P. part of the Financial V.P. sign on her door really stood for "Voodoo Priestess". Then she told me that because "our" business ...

Strange how it magically becomes "our" business when fecal matter hits the rotary oscillator in sizeable chunks, but when things are going well it's somehow a seamlessly-integrated, vertically-inspired structure delivering the very finest goods and services to the customer with an absolutely maximal profit stream and is the work product of ONE AND ONLY ONE manager, but I digress ...

Yes, because "our" business was going suffer a $250 Million loss this year, "I" was going to feel the Hand of God upon me.

You know, of all the things I've felt at work, THIS has got to be the worst. I thought it was bad enough occasionally being screwed by the "Man Who Holds Us Down". Now, apparently I will suffer the indignity of a divine Feelsky too.

Hi, thanks for visiting my "house in the roses"; it's a pleasure meeting you....

On reading your post--just considere the following: "O Lord, our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens... When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained, What is man, that thou art mindful of him?...
(Psalm 8:1,3,4)

Happy day to you!

Cielo

The shit rolls downhill - the credit doesn't, eh?

I am so sorry Don, but damn, you make a shit job sound funny as hell!

Such a talent you have...
Cynicism at it's finest!

My apologies on not having a good bible verse to sooth your oh so bruised person, but perhaps you could find a red-headed doll and stick pins in it....Voodoo Priestesses are NOT immune to such retribution you know.

Ah, I come to visit your blog and you are having a horrible day at work. That sucks! I'll take a drink of my beer, for you. =]

I'm sorry I'm JUST NOW getting back to your comments, but I just wanted to say thanks! The weather here has been insanely cold, but most of the storms have missed us. I guess that's a good thing. I just know my Texan ass is not use to this still...haha

Well, I'm going to catch up on your blog and then get ready for dinner. I will be talking with you soon! Have a better day tomorrow hopefully!!

XOXO, Savannah

First a feelsky from Justin, and now one from the supreme being too! Not to say you get around or nothing, but damn, if I were a high school boy, I would totally take you out on a date. You know what would make this all better? Liquor, that delicious cure-all.
