No News

Nothing new to report really, but things are going well. Lunch was provided again at work today, 2 Fridays in a row now. Today was somebody's birthday, and unlike Milton from Office Space, I didn't get skipped on the cake. Or cupcakes, as it were.

Red Sox win again in a fantastic effort by Josh Beckett and Manny DelCarmen who did a fantastic inning of work in an otherwise lackluster year (season ERA shrank from 7.30 to 6.75 in one inning of work).

It is cemented, I will be joining fellow bloggers in a "palooza" in Boston next weekend. I'm extremely psyched.

Oh and I'd like to thank the US Treasury for depleting the government account so we can pay for gas. Today was the first time I've filled up my gas tank completely in the last month. Lately, I've only been getting $20 here, $20 there. It's like I gave my car an extra treat with a full tank. Sad times, these.

But that's ok, it's a weekend! Happy Mother's Day, especially to all you single moms out there, who do so much for your kids. I hope your kids do something a little extra special for you! Now at Sprockets, we dance...

It's too bad they don't mandate increasing our wages proportionately to allow for the purchase of fuel just to get back & forth *to* work. =P

Having previously done payroll, I *know* that certain people at a former employer received an extra travel compensation for their normal commute. I think those of us with lengthy commutes should get the same if they want to retain our services, but I'm too shy to bring it up at work. However I have been working through lunches, if you know what I mean...

Tell Jess Happy Mothers Day for me, Redbeard.

And I can't wait until next weekend.

Thanks, will do Ted. The least I could do for her giving me permission to come and be debauched by you guys.

Ted D said...

You won't be debauched by me.

As for Tex? I have no comment. ;)
