Well I survived the training that I was dreading. Of course I got a horrible case of Cotton Mouth and even with taking a drink of water, that didn’t help. You could tell by my voice that I was nervous and I used a lot of uh…pause…uh. I must have sounded like a dork. Anyway, I got the message across and that is what is important. There is some additional training that needs to be done, but I think I will be able to get away with sending out a Power Point or PDF, which will be nice. Although I am ready to do another training via the web. Looking back it was kind of fun and a rush once it was over!
I got a laptop of a person that used to work in our office. She was pretty smart and set a BIOS password. I was able to get past that but then there was a Hard Drive Password. The silly woman who got the laptop from the lady, didn’t tell me until a day after I racked my brain on how to get past that, that she set the Hard Drive Password. I figured we were home free. Nope, then you have to get past a Windows Password. I tried a couple of free utilities but they didn’t work at all. So I broke out the company AMEX and purchased a piece of software for $29 that did the trick. Plus I can use it over and over, which will be very helpful for those machines that no one knows the administrator password to. :) I might get yelled at for the purchase but it’s a needed tool for my very lacking tool kit at this company.
The boss is in fact away for 2 weeks. We have had a couple interactions but all is tame thus far. Apparently I move too damn fast for him. A request comes in and he is copied on it, but it’s mean for me to do the work. I have the request completed before he has a chance to respond to it. So he asked me to slow down. I have never been asked that before. Put a task in front of me and just watch me go. I like to move things out of the way and move on to the next challenge. It’s always been that way and I don’t ever see it changing.
Monday when I woke up I noticed that my partners phone line was in use. Kind of strange. Then I realized he had the sprayer cat locked up in his office. The cat peed all over the phone connections and that mucked up the works. I had to put in a new jack last night and that was so not fun. Lots of yelling but we got through it. The phone works so that is a good thing. Just not how I wanted to spend my evening.
Speaking of Just… that makes me think of Justin one of my coworkers sons. He works in the building and damn he has a fine body and a nice ass. He has temptation written all over him. I really want him and he is legal but there is no way I will even touch him. It would cause more problems than it would solve. Ah, Justin.. makes me think of Queer As Folk. This kid is blond too. Ooh La La!
The guy who got in the fight I think is pretty well toast. While I haven’t been given the official word yet, I haven’t seen him. He is waiting to hear back from HR and/or the Owners to find out if he still has a job. Both the Owners and HR are out of the office this week, so he probably has at least a week to wait, if not longer. He is an hourly employee (I guess) and suspect that he is loosing pay over this. I hear he didn’t go to college so it will be rough for him to find a job. Bull crap, as long as he is creative about why he is looking for a job and doesn’t disclose the fact he got into a fight I think he could have a job pretty quickly. Since he is a bit of a hot head and a little strange at that, I would rather not work with him. However, it’s so not my decision. I don’t wish him any ill will just hope he lands on his feet and has learned a valuable lesson.
Big Boy is doing okay. The vet we saw over the weekend called to see how he was doing, he left a voice mail yesterday morning. I didn’t bother to call him back. I am giving Big Boy an extra dose of medicine in the morning to hopefully help him breath a little easier. Sunday is the day I worry. I hope and pray that everything goes well. I realize the stakes are higher this time but I have confidence and faith that he will pull through. That still doesn’t make it any less nerve wracking. I am trying to do special things for him this week, just in case. So he gets extra belly rubs, special food and in general the 1st class treatment he is used to. I don’t want to look back with regret of any kind if something would happen. The only regret I would have is putting him through the procedure and it’s a 50/50 shot.
Well, Momma cat is all over me to get upstairs, she wants to spend time with me before I turn into a Pumpkin. I am counting the days down until Friday and so looking forward to the massage. Saturday with Magic Mike won’t be bad either. If we could just stop the weekend there I would be fine. It’s Sunday that I don’t look forward to.
Before I run I spoke with My Brother on Sunday. He went to day shift yesterday. I hope it works out the way he wants it to. Our Mom is doing okay. She still has frequent anxiety attacks. She just saw the Dr. so hopefully the adjustment in medicine will help. He will probably check in with me on Sunday again. He never knows if he is working an 8 or a 12 hour day. Lots of OT at his place. The extra money helps them both, I just hope his body holds out.
More to come. Hope your having a great week. Take care and I will talk with you peeps later.
