I did not know that! I used to show the "original" hamster dance video to the high school kids I worked with, we were all laughing our heads off!

PF, can you get a letter of recommendation from your present place of employment? Or is that not a good idea?

I'm at work and likely to be here till 5 a.m ish.


Sparks at the airport and our local electricity board are doing some essential maintenance to our high power transformers and one of us guys has to be on hand in case of problems with our equipment.


Not as bad as it sounds as I get a sleep day tomorrow, a day in lieu on Saturday, I have taken holiday anyway on Sunday for a fishing competition and my rostered days off next week are Monday and Tuesday.


My 'wee bairns';

The two or three people that I am getting away from are the ones who write recommendation letters. If this was a matter of a co-worker who was driving me nuts, no problem, but it's the change in management that I cannot tolerate. My immediate supervisor is the biggest liar you ever heard, he's the one that started all this and the next two (DON and Administrator) are following his lead.

Shrek is so very excited and already has me half packed...

I did go and buy some packing boxes and the bubble wrap for my good dishes. I'm just about positive half the boxes we pack will be filled with books.

I read that as naked. I need a vacation or to the home I go.

Oh! Oh! I hope this is leading up to good news, because until you have a firm offer and have tendered your resignation to the Evil Trio I'm afraid of jinxing you. I hope you do get to quit on them, and make sure you close your letter with "Kiss My *".

Until then, crossing body parts and sending up prayers.

I think that the new people who want you on their team are aware that longevity trumps new management . 15 years speaks for itself...I'm excited for you, Princess...nothing better than being near your folks in this time of life, and the fact that Shrek wants to go too, and all your ducks are in a row....well, everything just has to work out. Big hugs and best of wishes for an easy move.
