so much, so little

Assuming that you still care at this point, you're probably wondering two things. First, where the heck is the article for this week, and second, why haven't I posted anything about my recent trip to Mexico? Please believe that I had an excellent time down on the Mayan Riviera, and that I do have stories to tell (not to mention pictures to show). Unfortunately, I'm finding that there is one obstacle getting in my way that is preventing me from writing about it all, and even interfering with my ability to send e-mail: my new job.

chasing the spring blahs away

April is going on record as a crazy month. I quit one job, started another, had a long weekend, will be celebrating Easter on the 25th with my family, am gearing up for my daughter's 3rd birthday, and have started finishing my basement. Did I mention that I'm also leaving the country for 8 days in there too?

Tinting My Collar

NFT Feature|AMP|#160;|AMP|#160;The grass always seems to be greener on the other side of the fence, doesn't it? Humans appear to have an enormous capacity for desiring more, or wanting something different. Until a couple of years ago I thought I had escaped this tendency in my professional life, but now I have definite desires and wishes for something else. This isn't the normal I-wish-I-had-a-better-job wishing, either - as far as career choices go, I think I've done quite well in choosing my line of work. However, in a rather unexpected twist, I now find myself wanting not to go back and get another degree or somehow shimmy further up the corporate ladder but instead go the other way. I believe it can be summed up quite nicely by saying that I'd like to add some blue to my white-collar job.

It's Just Right

NFT Feature|AMP|#160;|AMP|#160;Everyone knows the story of Goldilocks and the three bears. A brazen little shrew breaks into the three bears' home, eats their food, sits on their chairs, and falls asleep in the middle of her larceny. Of course, the selling point of the whole story is that little miss ne'er-do-well is quite picky about what she eats, sits on, and falls asleep on. In this particular felony spree, she finds the belongings of Baby Bear to be of her liking: his food isn't too hot or cold, and his seat and bed aren't too hard or soft - they're just right. So how does this story of a girl gone wrong relate to my prolonged silence this week? I tried other jobs, but the one I started on Monday is just right.

doughnuts, you taunt me so...

A notice went up on the company message board yesterday proclaiming that the shop had not had a loss time accident for three months in a row. All things considered, that's a great accomplishment. Management decided that to reward all the workers for their efforts towards a safe working environment, they would buy doughnuts for everyone today. Sure enough, about two dozen boxes of assorted Tim Horton's doughnuts appeared in the lunchroom, at least half of which started taunting me. Bloody doughnuts.
