The Rumor Box

Well, since it is the beginning of the year, we have had alot of new goals and measurements given to us for the new year. In addition we have had satellite corporate meetings and all sorts of new employee programs to boost moral. Moral seems to be down in the office right now.

The absolutely, most crazy thing that has been implemented is the rumor box. RUMOR BOX? Yes, a rumor box. In an attempt to stop rumors that run rappant all over, the higher ups have decided to put out a rumor box. If we hear a rumor that we want validated or not validated, we are to write it on a piece of paper, put it in the box and then management will collect them weekly and dispell the rumors. I think this is the most lame thing I have ever heard of...a rumor box. The only thing I think it will do is have peopel talk more to see if it should be placed in the rumor box. We will see if this is a benefit.

Well, I have officially fallen off the wagon. Remember my new years reso-shoe-tions? Only ten pairs this year. I have finally bought my first pair of new shoes this year. I bought them this past weekend. I was in love as soon as I saw them. They are a pair of Liz Claiborne Snake skin Slings. They are a deep mauve and brown and are to die for. This what they look like except for the color.

I have not done too badly. It is February...almost March and I have just bought my first pair of shoes for the year. I have had many temptations since January. I go shoe shopping every weekend. I just tried on and tried on and did not buy. I would attempt to get to the cash register and make myself put the box down and walk away from the shoes. I do plan to get a pair of golashes. I just love those multi colored ones. I do believe that will most likely be my next purchase. I will put that off just in case, there are a pair of dress shoes I MUST have.

Yesterday was a banner day at work. Jolly shoes had a melt down at my desk. All of a sudden he comes marching over and declares he has sent an email to the big boss requesting a meeting to decide if his placement is proper. He had had it and wanted to transfer back to where he came from. I of course had to jump in prevent that. After meetings with several people in a side room, today he seems okay. Not happy but working. Finishing shoes had been less bothersom recently. Classic court has been overhappy...she says she is on anti depressants. Happy is better with her. It keeps her speaking american english and not the Queen's english when she gets upset. Classic court is all up in arms about the marriage of Charles and that heifer Camilla.
Work can be such drudgery! I got this toward the end of the day! It was a bright spot. Enjoy!

My tire was thumping, I thought it was a flat.
When I looked at the tire, I noticed your cat.
Heard your wife left you
How upset you must be.
But don't fret about it.....
She moved in with me.

Looking back over the years
that we have been together
I can't help but wonder...
What the HELL was I thinking?
I've always wanted to have

someone to hold,

someone to love.

After having met you ..

I've changed my mind.

I must admit, you brought Religion into my life.

I never believed in Hell until I met you.

What I do is kick them in the pants with a diamond buckled shoe!
