Who in dang tarnation decided that managers need to have meetings so often? When am I supposed to get any work done? Oh ... I get it ... as my father would say, the word is "delegate".
Gosh, the more things change, the more they stay the same. Work is continuing on track, both day job and of course the own company thing. I managed my first network installation on Tuesday and the client was very impressed, which is a good thing.
I've been having a not so great week. Although I'm keeping busy, what with my various business opportunities and the day job that doesn't go away, it doesn't take away the pain I'm always feeling inside.
It's past home-time, and here I sit at the office, waiting for 6pm so that I can go and visit my better half. Who knew five weeks would fly past so quickly, and I'd be so lonely yet again. My cell phone bill went DOWN when I was overseas with this person, because I didn't have to phone so often just to hear such a wonderful voice (*Yeah yeah, I can hear you all gagging - I'll stop now*).
So explain to me how this works ... the doofus who screwed up the company (my day job) got fired, and everyone he identified for retrenchment kept their jobs, because he wasn't allowed to retrench them. So that's fine, I keep my job. Then when the new boss comes in yesterday, she promotes me. So now I'm full IT Manager, senior staff member, etc etc. It's a mixed feeling, because nobody knows if the company will make it.
I'm back from overseas and loads of news, but no time now :-). We visited Athens, Kalamata, Glifada, Patra, and Kefallonia (the island where Captain Corelli's Mandolin was filmed) while in Greece. Also, thanks to my friend Dirk, we visited The Hague, Amsterdam, and Rotterdam (completely rebuilt after the Second World War). In the UK, … Continue reading I’m back!
In approximately 18 hours, I will be jetting off to Europe on board an Olympic Airways Airbus, destination Athens. Which means that this is my last posting on this site for a while. I'd like to thank my ... no wait, that's my Oscar acceptance speech. Anyway, see you around.
I'm now counting down the hours to my trip. At the moment I'm recording Mariah Carey's Without You to mini-disc, for the plane ride and to listen to overseas. Also, my better half is lending me a laptop so that I can work on an idea that I've been formulating for a few years whilst on holiday.
George Mazonakis' Ston Erota is playing now. Earlier, I was listening to Anna Vissi's Xronia Polla. Greece, here I come!
The Doors - People Are Strange - I had to share it :-).
