Week Wrap-Up and Other Stuff

Work work work….that has been my week …. except for today.
I am all for hard work.

I am not all for people who fuck around, end up having to work a 12 hr day, then bitch about having to work “so hard”.  Tuesday, the consultants and I looked at each other and decided it was out of our hands. They know what they need to do. They are either going to do it or not do it.  Nothing we can do.

While this realization was freeing, it didn’t mean less work for us.

Plus, the male consultant and I had banter we had to have.

Especially after the zipper busted on his pants.

I don’t know what he’s going to do when he’s not working in the same office as I am.  I clearly have his respect given how he is with me.  Plus, I entertain him.  Then again, he gives me plenty of material.

For example, he told me a few weeks ago that he has been lectured to install confidence in the customers – not make them question his skills. He is a good technical guy – his mouth just gets him into trouble.  Like yelling at his computer to “just fucking work damn it!! while trying to troubleshoot a problem on the system.

Every time he starts doing something like that, I always say “as a client, I’m not feeling confident in your  abilities. I think I need to talk to your PM.”  Let’s just say, it degenerates from them.

Plus, he busted his zipper, then waited until it was dark and told me he had to take small steps so he didn’t show anyone anything.  I mean, how can you just leave that there without comment??

And I still say “eeeww” to the images someone gave me on that one……makes me squirm and not in a good way.

At home, G and the girls have been making cookies and egg nog.  Today they delivered their Christmas cheer.  The jedi gingerbread cookies when decorated looked like Muppet Babies on Crack. I still think they reminded me of Space Balls characters.

The other night at the Zoo Lights, I had some fun playing with bokeh.  But then again – that’s easy when there are eight million lights everywhere.  I wish I had more time.

Have I mentioned that my Jeep is running???  Yes, I’m excited.  And I think I owe the one who helped get her to that state more thanks.

I have decided that this would make for a cool replacement for a real Christmas tree, in the future.

Tonight, don’t forget about tracking Santa,

Finally, go read this post.  It’s entitled How Kenny Logins Ruined Christmas.  Fucking Hilarious!!

Happy Christmas Eve to all of you!!

    I love that Christmas tree mobile, though I doubt I have the patience to try it someday…

    Thanks for the Santa tracker link, you just saved me a search!

    I hope the final days until the project goes live don’t take what remains of your sanity ;-p

    I adore NotMartha and sent that tutorial to my sister in the hopes that we can make those trees next year!

  3. I love the mobile, but it just won’t happen here as I am the anti-craft.
