I got a phone call today from a well-loved client who is having a bit of a crisis at the ole facility and my services are required for a sweet 2 day audit at 20% more than I usually charge for that kind of an audit. Can I get an Amen?
I'm packing my bags even as I type. Actually, I'm waiting for my laundry to get done and I'm mostly packed. I'm off to South Louisiana tomorrow evening after I wrap it up at the Shreveport facility. I haven't been down south for a few months and I'm looking forward to it. I have some good friends down that way.
I had a really busy weekend and it looks like I'm going to have a pretty lively week as well. I'll have time to chill out at the hotel on Tuesday and Wednesday nights. Then I'll be home for a few hours Thursday night and then back to Shreveport on Friday.
Jinkies, I'm terribly put-upon, having to work 4 days this week instead of 2. Whatever shall I do?
I have been enjoying the heck out of my reduced schedule and I really sort of hate to see it get back to the kind of pace I used to keep, but I'll swing back into it. I always do. It is a Libra trait to work in cycles of frenzy and rest. Some Libras relax down to nothing whatsoever in between times of frenetic work, but I am fortunate in that I don't stop working and having an income in my periods of rest.
Nuff about work, eh?
We have had a few little extra lucky breaks around here lately. One night we ordered pizza for dinner and there was a new girl being trained at our pizza place. She put us down as a pick up, when we ordered it to be delivered and we were still waiting for our pizza an hour after we ordered, so myramains called to ask about our order and the manager was someone she knew so they made us a whole new order and gave it to us for free.
My sister is a radio personality and she talked about a murder mystery dinner theater that is going on and they had so many sudden ticket sales as a result of her mentioning on the air that the director gave her free tickets for 3 of us to come to the show. Those tickets are 35 bucks a piece. We went on Saturday night and had a blast. The deal goes like this: You are at this event, there are a bunch of actors in the crowd, a show is going on, somebody gets dead, and the audience is supposed to try to solve it. Whoever solves the mystery gets 35 bucks. Cash money. That's what I'm talkin' bout.
So none of us won, but mine got chosen as a good theory. And of course it was read by the MC to everyone. Being the shy lass I am... I was not trying to get chosen for anything. It wasn't too bad. I wasn't terribly embarrassed. Just slightly.
GO SEE NACHO LIBRE!!! It was very funny. I loved it. You may not agree, but then you would be wrong. If you don't think Jack Black is hilarious with the cheesy stuff he does, you may not be as enchanted as I was, but it was funny and entertaining and the skinny sidekick guy is hilarious.
I kept thinking about different funny things from the movie all day today.
Ya know, I was thinking about ranting a little about scientology, but it's more and more obvious that I am not the only one who can see that this emperor is buck naked.
I find it hard to believe that regular people of at least average intelligence, believe that load of hooey. I mean... aliens? UFOs?
What do they tell people to get them to accept the incomprehensible ridiculousity of it all?
Do you know that L. Ron Hubbard made a bet with a friend that he could "make up a religion" and there would be people stupid enough to believe it and live by it???
And he was right.
The emperor is naked, folks.
