The Colonel is Under Seige!

Happy Monday, Friends!


Yeah, right! It's Monday for Pete's sake! Who is Pete, anyway? And, why do some people care about Mike instead of Pete? I'm sticking with Pete - he works for me.

Well, I have mentioned that the Big Cheese said we might see him at the end of the month (big gulp for the Colonel!) and it's coming true. Big Cheese is flying in tomorrow afternoon. His plane arrives around 1:30pm, so he thinks he can be at the office before 5pm. I wish him good luck with that. I know he's from northern California and there's plenty of traffic in San Francisco, but he's flying into the Houston airport located on the far north side of town and our office is on the FAR west side of town, which, by the way, is the direction all afternoon traffic flows in this town.

Whatever!

Big Cheese has invited me, Wendy, and our spouses out to dinner tomorrow night. What we DON'T know is if the Colonel and wife are invited. I imagine they are, but the Colonel probably thinks he's the only one who is invited, so he's not talking.

Soooooooooooooooooooo......Wendy and I are trying to figure it out. We knew Big Cheese was royally pissed at the Colonel's lack of productivity (I'd be pissed, too!) and that he had told me we "might see him" at the end of the month. He's signed, sealed, and soon to be delivered. What we don't know is if there is a big, fat pink slip in his briefcase.

This is almost better than a soap opera, except in a very, tiny, small way, I feel sorry for our Colonel, but it's business (that sounds so Scrooge-ish, doesn't it?) and he is not helping our cause, but is truly a hindrance.

I hate having these mixed feelings. But, I acknowledge them and know everything WILL work out as it should.

That'd be awkward if he invited the colonel too, if he's going to fire him. But it could be awkward either way, I suppose.

Oh, and the image of not knowing if there is a pink slip in his briefcase reminds me of Deal or No Deal, haha.

With the economy what it is and the job market what it is, the Colonel is an IDIOT

Yes, the toilet water coffee does sway my feelings - thanks for the dose of reality!

But you won't have so much salacious blog fodder w/o the Colonel, will you? I'll stay tuned, that's for sure! BTW, Uncle Lynn decided to join the Bloggy Giveaway Carnival this week, so we're having an impromptu Pop'rs Giveaway this week!
