I guess when one suggests to their Boss that he allows oneself to actually "do the work he is being paid good money to do", one tends to get really busy when the Boss listens.
I had not realized how long it's been since I have posted here or had much input. With my increased responsibilities at work, just difficult to do much of anything that may require significant thought process.
For those who care, I will be starting to (try) post daily numbers for the Ga Fantasy 5. With payouts starting at $100,000 and 4 numbers worth over $100 plus being able to play it online, just trying out a little system I have hobbled together. I will try to post new numbers each day, who knows, may get lucky and get more then a free ticket.
Now, as for myself, let's see. It seems that it was around 2008 when I last posted a blog. Since that time, I have managed to destroy a Kia Sportage (ok, engine blew up, not my fault), a Chrysler New Yorker (yes, engine also locked up), a Mercury Milan (slammed into a parked car) and a VStar 1300 motorcycle (it took me for a ride down the interstate). And other then a few scratches, scars and aches in places I didn't know could hurt, am still roughly intact. And by some unknown miracle, am still married to the same woman...how she puts up with me, I don't know...perhaps it helps that I do most of the cooking. Am somehow still employed at the same place. How I haven't been fired for sexual harassment or just plain stupidity is beyond me, but then again, I ain't gonna complain. And that about sums it for for the past 5 years. Yeah, bunch of stuff happened in that time span and over time, I may get around to sharing it.
And now, a little bit of humor for you. However, this is not something I swiped, but instead, something I actually did do to a coworker.
For starters, the Company I work for hosts an annual chili cook-off. The Boss funds the winnings from his own pocket. Now as for me, I don't enter the chili cook off. Truth is, the last time I tried to cook chili, I gave up and threw the pot away because it was beyond help. So I contribute with deviled eggs. And I can proudly say that I can take 2 dozen deviled eggs to any where and none are left when the event is over.
Well, anyway, this one particular coworker, truth be told, he is a bit arrogant and occasionally thinks he is above most everyone else. Well, it was about half way thru the lunch, I had fixed a plate and was eating and he came and sit down across from me with his plate and proceeded to eat. He had about 4 or 5 deviled eggs on his plate and was chowing down on his third one. That's when I asked him how was the deviled eggs. With a mouth full, he mumbled that they were pretty good. I then told him that I had made them.
As he begin eating his 4th egg, I told him that I had a cool secret to making the deviled portion of the egg all nice and smooth and shiny. That as I finished each egg, I would lick my finger and trace my dampened fingertip around the top of the deviled egg part to smooth it out and make it nice and shiny. And for most part, each egg took me at least 4 to 5 licks to get them all smooth and even and looking the same. The look on his face was priceless.
BTW...for the record, I actually use a piping bag to put the deviled egg part into the yolks. Simple, clean and no finger licking required. Just finished up 2 dozen for tomorrow's chili cook-off and thought this would be a fun thought to share.
Do hope this finds all doing well.
