It's Only Tuesday

Don't worry... the Colonel is still here. He's made 3 calls this morning. That's almost a record.

Life, overall, is good right now. I love when you get in one of those smooth spells where things are right.

Today, on my way to work, I passed an office building... nothing remarkable about that... I go past this building everday, but today there were approximately 18 fire engines and 12 ambulances in front of the place. No smoke. So, I am thinking someone went postal and God only knows what's going on in there. I flipped onto the news channel. Nothing.

So, here I am in my office and still don't know.

Right this moment, it's really quiet and uneventful in the office. It's been crazy-busy the last couple of weeks but, for now, it's calm. Better to monitor every move of the Colonel.

Yesterday, he went on six cigarette breaks within four hours. Of course, we're not sure what he needs a break from, but I guess that's irrelevant in his world.

I have some contract workers that are trying to circumvent the system and manipulate work from our clients. They still want to do the work through us, but are trying to obtain on their own. I am really TICKED OFF at these people. You can bet they will be getting less jobs than anyone else. Sheesh - respect the system you chose to work within or take your exit.

Oh, and just for the fun of gossip... one of my workers packed up and moved across the country to live with her online love interest. It was all great at first until he turned into a clingy, needy dude. He became one of those smothering, all-encompassing guys you see on America's Most Wanted (without the violence). So, she broke up with him Saturday at which point he proceeded to have a heart attack. She drove him to the hospital and he refused to go in. Needless to say, she was not happy! Faking a heart attack to make her stay??

This morning she called to let me know he had a REAL heart attack last night and is in the hospital (he should be fine).

She and her rat terrier are now living in a hotel.

I have been very pleased and impressed that all the online friends I have made have been even nicer in person than I could have guessed. Your friend hooked up with a LOON.

I love to hear your stories.

I found my husband online. We have been married over five years and are very happy. I don't Know which one of us is more of the Loon in the relationship. LOL I think we are both pretty stable, but who knows.

The Colonel just doesn't get it, does he? I would love to be a fly on the wall when The Big Cheese returns, please let us know what happens.
