some people

Wednesday, May 02, 2012

There is a fellow at work somewhat young than I am and I might add even less mature in my estimation than his age even with 2 kids (ever hear of the phenomenon of kids having kids I think he fits the bill). Any way today we were talking and he says something and then he said "for Pete's sake" and then he went on to say "why do we say Pete- WHO IS PETE" I mentally rolled my eyes as wile I am not willing to admit I am a good Christian by any stretch of the word I am a fairly knowledgeable Catholic. So I go to try to explain this to "Bunky" (you know the premise that its better than to say "for C-----T'S sake and yes I really did spell it out I did not want to unintentionally offend HIM ) he really does roll HIS eyes at me ( this is the fellow who call his relatives IDIOTS for believing in G-D) and he also can have a vulgar mouth and he loves heavy metal and satanic lyrics. I told him on Friday I was going to bring a Christian Rock CD into play so as to balance out the atmosphere ( I should have told him I would bring in the Gregorian Chants CD) and drive out the satanic influences.

    LOL. I find the satanic craze very frightening. I can handle a lot of stuff but this stuff is scary.

    I have 2 full grown feral cats that are so sweet to me. They hate company though.

Old home coming

Sunday, April 29, 2012

I just got off of the phone (long distance of course) with a friend I worked with years ago and I lost contact with. I hadn't talked to Roland since at least 1994, but it was like I just talked to him yesterday. I just hope 45 minutes isn't going to cost too much.
(I think it was worth EVERY penny!!!).

    It's great to touch base with old friends and well worth the cost. Phone prices are pretty reasonable these days.

    Thanks it was sort of an awkward thing to do (after such a pregnant gulf of time and space- he now lives in northern BC) but I am still glad I did it- I can't answer for him but I know I used to think about him and wonder how he was doing at least once a week. At least now I know. I know part of the push to call him was that one of my old bosses passed away.

I'm sure that Roland was overwhelmed with
happiness to speak with you.
What a great blog!

thoughts

I know I read something similar to this years ago but I kept thinking about the topic all week so here it goes

If you don't like you job, imagine being without one
If your house is too old or not trendy , imagine being homeless
don't like what's for dinner? Imagine hunger
Can't have pop to drink ? Imagine being thirsty
Don't have the newest fastest car? Try walking to work everyday
Your hockey team isn't in the playoffs? Try living without anything but the barest of necessities
We have so much particularly in the "west"
yet we are so slow to be grateful even when it isn't perfect.
Just think how the rest of the world would love to have our problems.

    I totally agree. I have seen some lean times in my time. I'm real happy with my spot in life. I have it made.

ignoramus pt 2

Thursday, April 26, 2012

I see that I had some facebook activity from my "friend" but I am still stinging about his attitude actually its not really the first time he's been an oaf. He sent me this insulting email about federal civil servants and our supposed "goldplated' pensions and then when my one tomcat died he didn't say a thing but then when a "better" friends DOG died a week or 2 later he made a big deal about it (I should know I saw the pathetic email). So for part of the day at work I was thinking about how I could email him and point out his faults and rip into him for being such a dork although I think the victory would be hollow even though I think he RICHLY deserves this.

    He sounds like a jerk. Not withstanding the snide remarks about your job, a real friend would care that you lost a pet. I find that too many men love dogs and hate cats and though I do love dogs I also hate men who hate cats. I don't know if he is one of them but he is obviously a jerk.
