October 2007

My sister put her cat down yesterday.  He was a sweet, fluffy, manx named Ed.  Ed had been in perfect health until he ate some of the tainted food from the giant recall, before the recall.  Ironically, he normally ate a different brand of food, but my sister had run out, and grabbed a few cans of a national brand from the grocery store, and that's all it took. Her other cat is fine, only Ed became sick.

Somedays I wish I wasn't such a damn overachiever.  I worked a full day plus stayed an extra half an hour at my normal job, then I went to the store and picked up my mail and talked to my employees (well, threatened to fire everyone, but whatever..  ;) and then I came home and spent a few hours doing homework for school, and then I worked on a website for one non-profit, and the database on another. I am so freaking tired, and the to-do list just keeps getting longer... :sigh:

For those who don't know, I recently accepted a position at an established company not too far from the store.  AFTER I start working there, I discovered the place is extremely regimented.  In fact, I think they could teach the army how to be more militant about rules and punishments and all that.  My favorite rule is the no coffee rule.  There is a sign, above the door leading from the cafeteria into the holding cell / work area that reads "No coffee or beverage beyond this point."  No coffee? Is that for real?
