Penultimate Fiscal Push!

Well, today and tomorrow are that last two days of the fiscal year for us. This means that work is busy busy busy. Of course, with the contract that I have, as work gets rerouted, it gets rerouted to my desk. In other words, shit flows downhill and I'm the french drain. I had three meetings this morning and thanks to my wonderful work ethic (read: I'm stupid), I receieved three calls on my cell phone during them for work related emergencies (Note to Self: Do Not Give Out Your Personal Phone Number To People At Work).

I now have a list of people who are pissed off at me. I entitled that list : PEOPLE WHO DON'T DO THERE JOB CORRECTLY AND NEED A SCAPEGOAT! I told my wife that I may come in tomorrow (Friday), if they need me. I found out at one of the meetings that my presence is mandatory. So, God help any living thing (including friendlies) at the D&D table tomorrow night.

On a good note (and a secret note). I got called into the office on Friday. My boss wanted to inform me that (although unannounced yet) they had selected someone for the position here at work and that I did not get the promotion. The reason being was that my name was pulled from contention because they promoted my current position based on the work that I have been doing. I'm pleased. I have a gag order, but since nobody that I work with reads this, I can tell everyone here. I was also asked to be the "Emergency Contracting POC". This means that if there is an emergency of any type, I get a call and he to come in. If terrorists attach by plane again, I'm gonna be really pissed.

Congrats on the secret promotion! Well deserved, I'm sure.

Now onto more important things - how about that Mai Tai recipe?
