Let's face it

Being woken up at 4 am is not a good way to wake up. Even if you love the person who did it to you, it makes for a very long day. But, she turns 1 in 2 weeks, so I guess I'll forgive her.

The Red Sox magic number is 43 after blowing it last night against Detroit. But that's alright, since their upcoming opponents are Detroit, Anahiem, Kansas City, Detroit and then Tampa.

I recently started a new job and had to go through the whole interview process without letting anyone at my old job know about it. Then, when my new company was ready to hire me, they had to ask me for references. What a pain. I had to make a list of the people who are discreet. It was a VERY short list.

Why is it that all things are considered ok to talk about when you are working in an office. Why does that person two cubes away consider it ok to talk about his colonoscopy/divorce? I really don't want to know about it. I walk out of the office just to call my wife on the phone and ask her about her day. Why can't they?


And while I'm at it, why do people insist on talking over the speaker phone? With the door open? I used to have a boss who was 4 cubes down from me. He would call me on using a speaker phone, and then proceed to yell into it. I used to put down the receiver and just listen over the cube walls. It was very annoying to the people in the cubes between us. But the best part was when he would clip his toenails.

At least the guy clips his toenails over a paper towel.
