Does anybody out there really care...
about what "Tom the Spaces Guy" is doing? I mean, for real, who cares? Do you? I don't. In any event, I love my job and had a great horoscope today! Here

By Rick Levine

Your pragmatic approach to life can bring you rewards today, especially if you don't veer away from your original intentions. If you have an important decision to make, do it as early in the day as possible because as the evening approaches, you could become more negative. Try to be fair-minded as you balance your pessimism with optimism.

I love that because I didn't get to read it until just now and ya know what? It fit my day. One of the difficult things about this job is that, aside from the fact that everyone is terrified of it, I am walking into someone elses brain that doesn't fit mine. My desk is a prime example. This girl had sticky notes with God only knows who on them and phone numbers. That's it. Just random sticky notes....all over the bulletin board that surrounds my desk. THEN, she has all of the stuff that belongs with what I actually do....just randomly stuck up all over this board.

This had to

It did.


From this I can gather that the last person who filled my position was not well liked within the agency.

She was there less than one year.

So onto happier things. My boss, boss, the top clam, and I call her that because she looks like she just climbed off the beaches in "One Morning In Maine" and someday I think the two of us will meet on a northern beach and do a sandcastle together if not some serious crabs and clambs...but she may have the affinity for conchs and seashells that I do as well and lobster is definite..., is backing me up 1050%. The job I am walking into is the worst in the agency and basically, I have carte blanche. I'm going to wait until after he is neutered, but I think I will be able to bring Bear into work with me for stress management. Yeah, its really that good a job...

"Hurry time" I'll be back.

ANYWAY, the job is going really well and everyone is very thankful that I am there, including me because I have never had a job where I had my own place...and the boss brought donuts in every Friday, and we had complimentary bags with no strings attached, and everyone was waiting to help me figure out what it was that I had to do.

There are a lot of people who have done this job in the agency, but not fully. My job is to put it all together and get the whole job done again. Don't know if it can be done, but do know that I have the skills to do it.

So "The Dog Lady" is on, so Bear and I have to go because he really loves this show!

Happy wandering!

The Writer...and her dog, Bear

I'm so jealous that Bear can potentially come with you to work. That would be my dream situation. Maybe I'll have to go work at Pixar or something.

And hey, a bit of advice--never pass up free donuts (unless they are jelly)!
