Quote of The Day

By my darling Allie, regarding attending a church service for the goin' out after:

"I was going not with the spirit of God in my heart, but with the spirit of chicken in my belly."

My Day at The Office

I quote to you from Billy Madison:

"Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul."

No title could accurately sum this up!

It’s no secret that I don’t enjoy the environment of Corporate America. I often say, “I can only act normal for 4-6 hours per day.” This, naturally, would preclude me from working on, say, a software development and support project (which requires the abilities to concentrate for long periods of time AND to behave in a businesslike manner)! How-ever. There are some definite plusses; not the least of which is the ability pay my rent, thus enabling me to live indoors.

One of my very favorite things about working in a large company is the fact that we have fabulously bright people from all over the world working on site. When I first came to the project where I’m working, there were no less than TEN national languages spoken in my team room. This is the type of thing that turns me on! (Language geek.)

Naturally, the variety of languages represented means that everyone’s first language is definitely not English.

In the course of the last few years, I’ve heard some outstanding renditions of English.

I’ve been asked more than one time to

“Please do the needful.”

And my girl Tina (colleague and sister) is regularly asked to

“Please make the spreadsheet updations.”

BY FAR the best rendition of English I’ve ever seen was forwarded to our project yesterday by an extremely bright, very talented, semi/non-English-speaker. The contracted employee responsible for this stunningly fabulous good-bye letter was returning to her home country to take on another project.

People, I am NOT making this up. Enjoy, and by all means, DO NOT DRINK ANYTHING WHILE READING THIS. YOU WILL CHOKE.

Hi All,

Time had been formicating at its own sweet stride till the day came, 31st January 2007, the last day for me in the project. It has been a difficult decision for me to leave but before several factors could have discombobulated me for the same, at present there is an olla podrida of predicates vindicating my adience to poise my personal allegiances along with my professional aspirations.

Time eluded on hotfoot surreptitiously and after a sapidity of almost two years, Jeez!! at last I have to bid adieu to the entire team of [company]. The past two years have been a period of copasetic experience which will never forget. I have truly enjoyed all the experiences and interactions that I have had with many of you. I leave here knowing that I have successfully contributed to [name of project] and other activities here at [company] as well. This sumptuous experience would lead to my consequent coalescing with the other projects in [contractor employer].

Once again thanks a lot to all for their support and cooperation and wishing everybody best in their professional and personal endeavors.

I will be just an email away for those who would like to keep in touch with me; the address is "".
