What I Would Say

I was talking to a friend the other day (I can't remember which friend, since I have sooo many). Anyway, said friend and I were talking about what either of us would say to someone famous, in power, etc.

Here's a list of what I would like to say to:

George W. Bush
You're bit of a jackass, aren't you? Hellooo? George? Um, George, you have some drool on your chin.
I would imagine that at this point George's "handlers" would rush and whisk him off to his play pen.
Too harsh?

Tom Amianno (I probably spelled his name incorrectly, but he's an idiot, so I don't care.)
Is that your real voice or are you trying to sound like that? Is it an act? A dissability? What is it? Because, honestly, you know, don't talk. Please.

George Will
You do know you are a pompous ass, right?

Jacob Clifton
I love your writing. Will you marry me?
Jacob would have to quit smoking for our passion to commence, though. You know, if you're reading this, Jacob...

The producers of The Gilmore Girls
What have you done to my fun happy show? It has become waaaaay too real, bring back the "ladida" I have grown to love.

Dan Renzi
I love starting my monday morning with you.

And finally:

What the hell happened?

I figured I would update my less than happy post about work from ealier this week.

I decided to take the bull by the horn and talk to a Project Manager in my office about the best way to go about being a PM (I have talked to other PMs in my office, but they of little help as I will explain below). Now this particular PM doesn't work for my company, she is a contractor - a contractor we are paying $200/hr! The reason I wanted to talk to her is because she seems to really like her job (at $200/hr, I can see why), and she seems to have a really good grasp on how best to be a PM. She seemed really enthusiastic about the idea of me becoming a PM; the first thing out of her mouth was, "You would be a great Project Manager." Now when someone is that enthusiastic about me becoming a PM, I take notice. Now she was not the first to say this to me, others in my office have said pretty-much the same thing. So, I feel confident that becoming a PM is the right path for me. I should also explain that I have learned that the PMs in my office are not like other PMs. The kind of work that have deal with is unusual, and, therefore, not the norm for a PM. I've learned this from speaking with other people in my company (several people in my group even said the "PMs" in my group really are not PMs in the traditional sense!). Anyway, I am having lunch with the contractor PM next week to discuss the best thing to do to move forward.

My Day

To illustrate the kind of day I have had? I just noticed my socks do not match. I fear the gays will take my card away...

Job? Career? Work?

Today at work I took a training class for one of the online tools used for tracking project times, cost, etc at the company I work for. *I. HATED. IT!

*Update: I shouldn't say I hated the class, I hated how the online tool creates a kind of micromanaging feel to any project. The class itself was fine.

After the class was over, I went down to my office to catch up with some things I needed to get done before I left for home. Well, I was talking to one of the Project Managers in my office about the class I just took and he said, "I can't understand why you would want to be a Project Manager." Now, this was not exactly what I like hearing from someone in the type of work that I want to do (atleast, I thought I wanted to). This is not the first time I heard someone say this to me. Another PM in my office said the same thing, basically. Now these two negative reactions to learning that I was going try to get in Project Managment came from two different poeple with different personalities. Not a good sign.

Why am I telling you this?

Because now I feel like I am looking at the wrong path for a "career". I'm thrity-six years old and I have no idea what to do.

The last time I liked what I was doing was, oh, 13 years ago when I worked as stag crew/produciton manager at a performing arts center. I miss that.

Overheard In My Head

I hate my fucking job!
I'm not sure if that was just something I said inside my head or actually screamed in the morning. When I said/thought this it was early in the morning (around 4 am) and I'm not sure if I screamed it out from a dream, thereby waking myself up, or if I just said in my head for no one to hear but me. If I screamed it out, I would like to applogize to my neighbors. If it is any help, I couldn't get back to sleep and just layed in bed for two hours before getting up to go to work. Ah, anxiety attacks... LOVE 'EM!

I don't think I like how these socks go with these shoes.
This was said while talking to a co-worker about...I don't remember.

My god, that guy is beautiful.
Geeze, pick a time, anytime...

Do I miss him, or do I miss just having someone to sleep with?
Pretty clear, I think.

I can't believe I haven't vaccummed or dusted in two weeks
Hey, I've been in a rut lately, cut me some slack

You would think I could take comfort in knowing the majority of people in my office hate their job too.
I take no comfort knowing this

Drive By Review: Sky High

Rented Sky High the other night.

You can't go wrong with dialogue like this:

"The kids who are bitten by radioactive insects, or fall in a vat of toxic waste, get their powers as soon as the very next day. Or... they die... "

New Year

Back at work after a week's break-job is the same. Woohoo! Strange thing about getting back to work this morning, along with the usual dread of going back to work, I was actually a little nervous about returning. Now I have doing the same job for 5 years now (help me!), so I don't know why I was nervous. When I got to work, the usual work stuff had to be done and I settled into the same routine-no nervousness; life is strange that way, I suppose. Now I just have to make myself get back to the gym - easy to do since I am a bit of a gym rat, but I still may take today off and go tomorrow. I don't know, I'll see how I feel at the end of the day.

To do in the New Year:

New Job

Not let any darkness invade my life...
