Ready or not, here I come!
Do you remember shouting that out during a game of hide and go seek? I do! But that's not what this post is about.
Mission accomplished baby! I have *gasp* 50 followers! Mr. 49 & Mr. 50 popped up yesterday, bless their hearts. Mr. 49 is Alcantar, and when I looked at it quickly in work, I thought it said Alcanthang, but it ain't so. lol Potato, potahto.
And Lucky Mr. 50....You should get a prize for being my 50th follower...feel free to email me in case I think of something. Mr. 50 is a dude called FullHouse538, no one I remember from this blog. BUT, you may not know this, but my memory is long and true. Not so much if I have to remember to bring something home, but I tend to remember those who I've played with for years and years and Fullhouse538 is ringing a bell. I think I played against him in one of the BBTs. Remember those? I may have also kicked his ass. :) Anyway, I'm not sure but I think that's the case. In any event, welcome, welcome, welcome! I may seem a bit abrasive at times, but I'm really very sweet. Erm, unless we're in a poker game, in which case I want to take you out at the knees. :)
I normally don't post on Saturdays but wanted to mention mah new boyz. Now that we've reached my sister's age it's time to reach for my mother's! My mom just turned 70 years old btw so that is what we are shooting for.
Since I have you here, I may as well tell you a story - true story as some things that happen to me, you just could not fucking make up. Let's get back to the receptionist at work, shall we?
When last we left off I was still waiting for my calendars, right? A large order from WB Mason comes in but she never comes by with my stuff. Finally late in the afternoon I ask again.
"Oh it might be in the big box that came in this morning."
"I could go open it!"
I touch my fingre to my nose. Bingo!
An hour later.......
One calendar is on her desk and I snag it. I ask about the other and she says 'Oh that, I think it's on back order."
"Find out how long the lead time is. If it's too long I'll just order another one." This one is more vital as it's my daily book where critical shit goes.
"Just pick another one and I'll order it!"
"No. Find out the lead time!" OMFG So that's where we are calendar wise. She also places a peapod order for the office so we have drinks and refreshments for presentations etc. Her peapod order came in at noon on Friday and we have a big presention on Friday afternoons. Very good! Except she comes by and says she forgot to get crackers, or cookies, or dip and needs petty cash to go buy some. Pisses me off.....but I give her some money. She comes back a half hour later and hands me a penny. A PENNY.
"Where's the receipt and the change?"
"Oh, you're not going to believe this but I lost them both...the receipt and the change, except this!" Again she shoves A PENNY at me.
"How could that happen?"
"I put the change and receipt in my pocket. I guess it all fell out except THIS." (again with the penny)
Anyone believe this story? If you do I have a lovely structure called the Zakim Bridge I'd like to sell you.
