Native Genius

I HATE work meetings, always have always will. And being Cold and Callous I hate the touchy feely meetings the worst. Team Building, getting to know you, in touch with each other feelings I just cringe…

So, when we were told to come up with our Native Genius, I had NO idea what to put. Native Genius is defined as:  something you do easily and freely – meaning you aren’t necessarily aware of it and you don’t often have to think about it.

Since I had no stinking clue, I cheated and went to Facebook for help…. Continue reading “Native Genius”

I’m just gonna have to be smelly!

It’s a sad truth, working gets in the way of cycling. Yep, bills, groceries, wine and stuff costs money. Had I known the person I was now and how much I liked riding at this stage of life, I may have chosen another career path. (One that involved 2 wheels….) But, luckily I am happy now, so I have no regrets.  The job pays the bills and buys the bike gear, though  it does require I get creative with finding time to cycle!

It has been a long week

Folks I am sitting here today, without wine (I had a bit too much last night, so I don’t need any tonight) and I am just flat beat.  It has, without a doubt, been one helluva long week!  Three hour meetings each day (which drives me nuts).  Working with a new program we are implementing in my department (It doesn’t like me, and I feel the same about it.  What it doesn’t know is I have a big stick and WILL use it if it keeps screwing up.) I got rained on something fierce on the ride home Wednesday night.  Oh and the Seahawks lost the Super Bowl last Sunday.

Yeah its been a tough week, but then again, there was some good as well! Continue reading “It has been a long week”
