A Little About What Little I Know About Myself

My photo
Hold On I Know I Wrote This Down Somewhere, Canada
Just a quiet country boy who believes in remaining calm at all times even though there are times when a little excitement is necessary. I also believe in living each day to it's fullest because when it's over you can never have it back and it makes one less you have coming. I was married to the most wonderful woman in the world, my late wife Ellen. She will always have a place in my heart. I like cooking, dining out, traveling, shopping, gambling, blogging, bling and I love my truck cause she's pretty and fast. Oh and let's not forget food.

June 28, 2010


Well here it is Monday and the start of another work week. After a dull uneventful off and on rainy feeling poopy weekend this is what you have to look forward to. Going to work with nothing to discuss with your co-workers because you didn't do diddly. Might as well go sit at your desk and stare at the clock hoping by some miracle it will suddenly be time to go home. Tried that for a bit while sipping on coffee and that only served to make me more tired than I was when I got there. Must have had something to do with all the times I had to get up and go to the bathroom because of all the coffee I was drinking. Figured I might as well get my computer going and setup the programs I would be using. Checked both emails. Nothing on the work one but did have a few from friends on my home one. Answered those and then took a look at my blog but nothing new on there so now it was time to look busy. Picked up a piece of paper off my desk and began my tour of the premises just to see who was at work and maybe chit chat a bit with them. Carrying the piece of paper is an old trick I learned long ago. Walk around with it like you are looking into it and if someone higher up on the food chain than you comes across your path then put on this serious look as if you are really thinking about what it is that you aren't really doing. Works every time! The old look busy routine. Before I knew it, it was getting close to lunch time. Wasn't really hungry but went out for a ride and picked up a little snack. Brought that back to my office and was taking my time eating it when the Branch Manager came into my office and said he needed me to do something for him. Of course I answered "no problem" and away he went. Well I jumped on what he needed like white on rice and put the finished paperwork and purchase order on his desk when he wasn't looking. Next thing I know he was back in my office again asking me what these papers were for and I told him that it was what he had requested. Oh he said...Dam that was quick. Good man. Ok that meant my day was complete and I could just drag my butt around like a sack of potatoes and be good to go. Dam I'm good! Guess that's why I've worked my way up to minimum wage in such a short time.

I had a few projects which required my expertise and they kept me busy (somewhat) the rest of the afternoon and then it was there. Yes I looked at the clock and there was only 15 minutes left before time to go home. Well I didn't want anyone saying I was late going home so I shut down and wandered around for a few minutes and then out the door I went.

So now after what looks to be another dull uneventful no excitement kind of night tomorrow morning I have to face TUESDAY!! That's alright just 2 more days and then it's Canada Day and a day off. I can do this.

Hope ya'll out there had a great Monday and hope the rest of your week is good. Now I need to go into the kitchen and see if I can find a stale cracker or something to eat cause I'm hungry after such a strenuous day. Wonder how much food the cats have left...maybe I can sneak a bowl of that without them noticing. Last time I tried that one of them got a little mad at me and now watches me when I'm around the food dish.

Well aren't you the lucky duck! I'm FIRST here, lol. Just happened to check the dashboard and saw you'd posted so ran right over (huff, puff, stagger). Yes, Curtis, my day was the same as yours, a zero and that's exactly what I posted, too, so don't even bother going over there, hahaha. Let's hope Tuesday is better. Just hung up with Cheryl and we've cancelled lunch for tomorrow because it's just too hot outside. Trying for later in the week with any luck.
Well, as you can tell, I have nothing to say, so I'm just going to close out the computer and go watch my guilty pleasure, The Batchelorette. Might as well get a laugh, right? Lucy is pawing me, too, and Sam's in the background yelling at his mouse -- everyone is bored -- so off I go.
Cya later :D

Ok, so it was 7 sentences....8 if you count the "cya" part. Don't you dare say one word.

Hope tomorrow is good for you!! :)

Joan said...

I think you need a hobby bud. Or get a part time job driving a limo:) Sounds like a plan to me!

Sally said...

It was fun "tagging along" with you at work for a bit, Curtis; glad it wasn't a too-busy kinda day.

As one who recently found herself unemployed, I miss being around people and the activity of working outside the home. Glad you're in an environment you can tolerate. Not everyone enjoys such a luxury.

When I find my next job, I'll remember that "carrying around the sheet of paper" strategy. Could be useful!!!

Off I go to your next posting!
