Go, C—!

Go my friend C— who got her book published. It's a cracking read and at the end I wanted to read more. Now that's a life win. Hat (equals sign) doffed

Furtling along...

July 29, 2014 - 19:32 -- Admin

theBoy and I share a word—furtle, or furtling—which means to swivel your eyeballs in a suspicious manner. It now has a larger meaning of tucking your head down to just eyeballs above the rim level and sneakily zooming along. I am officially in a new position and oldwork has forever lost their hold. My newwork is awesome and I get to do fun things as I furtle along, tweaking things here, suggesting things there.

I did not blow goats; have no proof

May 21, 2014 - 23:43 -- Admin

Just over a year ago I tried something I've always wanted to try. It was a public performance piece. It ... did not go well. No, no it did not.But tonight I gave it another go and this time it went well and I did not blow goats. In fact, I fucking rocked it out. Alas, I didn't record the event, so I do not have proof of non-Goat blowing. But a friend was there and he saw it; he did!

It's the third act and Ricky Bobby is back on the track!

With thanks to Talladega Nights.It's now been a couple of weeks since I joined the new team and I am humming along. The workload is thus far bearable and there's kewl things I get to do like go into the field to talk to people and even take photos. I, like Ricky, was knocked out of the workplace and it took the entire second act to get me back to the track. But back on the track I am and I am zooming along.

Seat seep and evil people

May 17, 2014 - 12:03 -- Admin

It happened again the other day, seat seep. It happens when there's a perfect storm of runny butt and thin-weaved PJ pants sans undies. It squished through the pants and as I got off the bike seat I could see the runny smear left in my wake. Fortunately I have discovered the perfect cleanser for seat seep; human sweat. All I had to do was take a tissue, run it over my sweat-stained balding noggin then carefully daub up the stain.

I had an interview!

May 12, 2014 - 20:03 -- Admin

I had a job interview recently. It was the fourth interview I've had since I was officially dropped into the APS redeployment register. The interview was fine. It was almost intimate, four people in a small office and clustered around a small round table. Since I have lost the fear of lacking worth then the interview was enjoyable. I talked at length about how awesome I am and how awesome the job was that I did. I even brought samples to show them my awesome work in action.

... I am tracking along with some good and some bad. Some bad is putting weight back on. I ride an hour a day on the exercise bike but it seems to do fuck all. That or what I am doing is just retarding some of the gain. I have eaten heavier lunches that's for sure, and I've dabbled of late in pies of the fruity kind. But, since A2 cream, came out I can't but help sup from my pasty mistress. Anyway being just a little bit fatter sucks the wang.

Back in the saddle and it's feeling good

New work is going well. There's aspects I don't like, but it's likely because I've not done those things before, but there's also elements I love and I get to do them here. That's pretty awesome that I get to return to my special type of bureaucracy of which I excel. It makes work more fun and therefore more enjoyable. And not only do the other team members have a sense of humour but so does my boss. So it's going pretty sweet for Mikey and he keeps winning. Wellness for the win.
