Obligatory Rant: Why must I be surrounded by someone who tells me stuff I don’t care about? I don’t care about paddle bits for an electric drill, where you water skied when you were ten, what road leads to the liquor store over on Bay Ridge drive, what kind of gun you’d need to shoot a particular kind of deer (and stop that crazy talk about killing unsuspecting animals right now), why you hate the “flaming fags” who comprise Red Hot Chili Peppers, the plot of the latest book you are reading and how much Lucie likes it when you pet her in just the right spot. SHUT UP! I mean it. Just shut up. Right now. [obligatory nudge from angels to be all light and love] Oh, and thank you for hanging shelves in my bedroom. (But please stop talking. I don’t ask much, do I?)
Happy Happy Joy Joy: I like our new (temp for now, maybe full time soon) receptionist. She’s a sweetie. And already PiK is teaching her stuff other receptionist (Martha Stewart wanna-be) couldn’t handle after 2 months there. But I must ask this troublesome question: why, in this day and age, would you get engaged when you are 17 years old? She is 18 and her fiance is 17 and just a senior in high school. I don’t even think a pregnancy at that age justifies marriage. While I can somewhat see getting married when you’re in your mid-20s (and even then I think that’s pushing it, IMO), it baffles me that someone could even think they know, at 17, who they will partner with for life. At 17 you don’t even know who YOU are much less what it takes to be a full partner with someone else. …. Hmm, that turned into a teeny rant when I meant to be all happy about having someone who doesn’t talk my ear off AND has a clue about things. So, let us end on a happy note: Bombastic boss made a comment about
how nice she sounds on the phone and suggested I look into “her situation” to see if she’d be interested in full time work. LOL I’ve been scheming on that since the end of last week. heheh This way, he thinks it was his idea and is more amenable to it. (bows to her angels for smooth roads to things we need)
Details on my class (for my buddy CrazedMom): I am taking a class called “Religions East and West” which teaches about not only the major religions (Judaism, Christianity and Muslim) but also many others. This is a required course from Sancta Sophia and I am lucky that Regina is teaching it through Light Paths rather than having to go to Oklahoma to take it. She’s offering several courses this year that are on my required list so that’s a true blessing. I think I will go to OK once this year for the latter half of “Spiritual Healing” which covers the Death and Dying and Spiritual Emergencies coursework. I want to take that with Reverend Parrish and it’s only offered every other year. Who knows where she might be in 2009 so I want to take it now.
Are we all caught up now? I think so. Gonna go visit my TT ladies who left me lots of commentaries on my recent Tuneful 13! Have a good day, all!
