Random essays on wine, writing, moving to San Francisco, surfing, cats (exotic and otherwise) and zombies...depending on my mood.

Good things that have happened this week


1. I received my first official UT paycheck (UT being a partial acronym for the company that I work for, about which I have nothing but good things to say). I was hired on full time as of last Monday and am quite happy with the situation.

2. I received a big old box of U goodies (U being an acronym for UT's mother company, which I'm also very fond of) to welcome me on board. Nifty!

3. I got a gift certificate and award from Westaff as their Associate of the Month for June. Sweet!

4. One of my work colleagues called me 'efficient.' And she was serious! I feel all grown up now...

5. Another work colleague brought me a bottle of cabernet from China to try!

6. Dave got a new job!

Needless to say, some lovely Prosecco was consumed last night to celebrate the occasions. Otherwise, the diet remains in place!

On another note, go check out Mr. Fabulous's new blogsite. Gotta love the noir graphics! I'm very chuffed that he hadn't heard the expression 'Glee Globes' before running into me. Hah!

    er, "anachronism"? I think you mean, um...I forget. But not that.

    Congratulations, in any case!

    It's a shame we have to worry about stupid crap like that, isn't it?

    Good luck with the ventures forward!

    Congrat's on going "Perm." !!

    I'm jealous. After a handfull of interviews I still don't have anything. And my interviews were all self generated- temp companies here haven't done jack.

    And I've already had a friend do an employment verification and reference check which came back okay- so I know it's not that.

    Rural bumfuck really sucks ass.


    Hey, but Congrat's!!

    Mr. Fab, it is indeed about time that you receive honors and a station befitting your talents. I will accept my job in your administration with pride and creativity.

    J.B, thanks for the good wishes - it does suck that you're having so much trouble finding a job. I know for a fact that you're a damned good employee! GR were idiots to keep Denise instead of you.


    Hanif, thank you so much for stopping by my blog! I'll shoot you an email.

    Wow. I just went over to Mr. Fab's blog and read the account of his doocing.

    I still don't understand why it happened, but it does confirm all my worst paranoia about the working world these days.

    I'd offer these suggestions:

    Don't tell anyone at work that you blog. Just don't. I haven't.

    Don't blog about work, other than as you've been doing, in the most general, glowing terms.

    And I'm all about blogging anonymously, but I do understand why others make a different choice.
