OY! What a drama-center my workplace is going to be tomorrow. Turns out my boss resigned on Friday. This event was not well received by the CEOFH and it turned into a shitstorm to end all shitstorms including the
Wicked Witch of the West Human Resources hag tearing up ex-boss’s office and locking him out of it while he was at lunch. Not a good scene at all. And a certain cow-worker of mine has been running her mouth saying crap to others to stir the pot up more because she lurves the dissarray. See what happens when I take a vacation?
I’ve resolved to remain above the fray, not gossip about stuff, do my work as best I can and keep my mouth shut. Those who know me well (yes, you, Cousin ‘O Love) will understand just what a major undertaking “keeping my mouth shut” involves but I know it needs to be done. If the email debacle of 2003 wasn’t reason enough to leave, this turn of events certainly is. Wish me luck getting the hell outta Dodge in 2004! (Still no word from job prospect peeps)
BTW, Danish grrl did a good job this week and told me that she has a new appreciation for how much work I actually do there. She even said she has no idea how I manage to do it all. Yes! I rock! hah!
Oh yeah, I think my theory re: my watching Caps games causing them to lose is correct. I didn’t watch Friday night because we were over COL’s house beating the two men (at Trivial Pursuit, of course. Not just randomly beating our husbands however fun that sounds!). Caps beat (some other crap team) 4-1. They play Edmonton tonight. I am undecided about watching wondering if it really does have some bearing on their score.
Speaking of Friday’s TP game: despite attempting to aid and abet the enemy (aforementioned husbands), Cousin ‘O Love came through when it counted and helped win the game for our team. I still can’t get over that whiter than white COL knew that LL Cool J’s initials stand for Ladies Love Cool James. Man! The things you learn about your relatives, eh?
Interesting post from Salon’s Table Talk:
Scientology has destroyed Tom F. Cruise’s mind:
Movie superstar Tom Cruise has hit out at Hollywood’s therapy culture, insisting the practice of psychiatry is a “waste of time” and should be made illegal. While many American stars admit attending regular sessions with probing therapists, Cruise follows the line of thinking adopted by his religion, the controversial Church Of Scientology, and refuses to accept psychiatry as a legitimate form of self-improvement. The actor, 41, says, “I think it’s an utter waste of time. There’s nothing scientific about it. “Communication is a good thing but I think people get more mentally out of having a good meal or going for a walk. “I think psychiatry should be outlawed. I can’t believe electric shock therapy is still used. I think it definitely does more harm than good.”
So talking to a shrink is illogical, unproven, and not scientific, giving money to a church that believes the Earth was originally populated by a race of people exiled here by the galactic overlord Xenu is.
Heh. I love that. (No, I didn’t say it but I may as well have)
