a quick wrap up

lets see...

Member I said I was gonna talk to the boss... well I did and as I 'spected she was congenial and acknowledged the issue... although no actual appology. But that's ok, she's actually a good boss and I respect her - but I did want to see how she took the talk. she passed. :)

The Betwitched shirt came in!!! I got a large and basically its a night shirt for Z. she loved it. Thanks for the link junebugg!

The big potential contract I had a hand in lining up is getting a little vapour like. The sales dude commented to my boss that it didn't look like any potential at all... now I'm gonna see the sales guy to get 'permission' to talk direct to the client... I could get (would get) fired if I talked to the client without the sales-rep's permission. arrrgggggg!!!!!!

I grabbed the new lj client. cool. it coughs a bit during the install about a dll but I just "ignored" it and everything is fine.

Oh, and way cool with gardengnome - cowboy hat gnome girl is a dern fine lil'gnome. A regular coyote!

Well g'night lj... you've been especially good to me lately. I've had some really good stuff happen for me because of you and basically, you rawk!
ps. these friends you've hooked me up with... they rawk like all get out!!!

(sleep and eat and get peacefull lianna! hugz all over.)

oh, and kathleen... yo yo yo right back atcha girl.

ok, how many times can i rewrite my resume???? Boss-types are bidding some monster RFP for a contract with a government department and it includes all these potential candidate (read: me and my team) profiles (read: resumes). So she asks me to do such and such to my res... I do, and then it's such and such else... well we're on day three of adding 'such and such' and it's driving me batty!!!!!

ilovemyjobilovemyjobilovemyjobilovemyjob No really I do.

mini rant: Lj, i wanted to express my displeasure at a particular global event. There's this girl, she's 17, and her daddy wants her to get married... he's got three guys in mind. So he makes her have sex with all three of them. - one at a time of course - Well she got preggers. But it seems that being preggers and not married means you've had sex out of wedlock... and in whatever backward ass head-in-butt country this is (Nigeria), it's against the law (sex out of wedlock). Religious Law (Muslim) requires that her punishment be 100 lashes with a cane!!!! She's 17, and pregnant. They executed her sentence two days ago. She's going to live. No word on the baby. Thanks dad!

ok all done for now.
