Real Safety Rule of the Day

I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I know, two in one day -- where's Keritha's witty commentary? you ask. What's with all the filler? Well . . . it turns out that I'm not as prolific as I thought. So until I think of something funny, here's this.

7000 - If you are injured while on duty or while on Company property, you must IMMEDIATELY:
1. Report your injury NO MATTER HOW TRIVIAL to your immediate supervisor
2. Obtain medical attention.

Not only is obtaining medical attention conern #2, but there aren't even any CAPS.

Oh, and ps, this is no guarantee that my next entry will be funny/entertaining in the slightest.

Itinerary (because you wanted to know)

Hey, remember how I was talking last week or something about how my job used to kick ass, and I was out hanging off of bridges and such? I just remembered today the other spifferific thing about working with the Maryland gang: they have Fridays off. Kickass! And I was usually home before 5 all the other days.

In deciding to take a half day tomorrow, I have made today not so bad. I haven't done anything productive all afternoon. I probably won't get anything done tomorrow morning, either, but if I do, I will most likely be cheerful about it.

Tonight: celebrate Hal's birthday (?)
Tomorrow: celebrate 4-20
Tomorrow evening: drink and dancing
Saturday: loud Broadway show
Sunday: help to paint a room (?)

Life is good.

I was in a meeting today, from 9am until noon. I never used to go to meetings, but I've been in a bunch this week. I actually don't mind much, because they usually have donuts or something, I usually don't have to contribute anything (or even pay much attention, for that matter), and it passes the time.

Today in my little meeting I was FUH-REEZING. So very, very cold. I kept figeting, crossing and uncrossing my legs, shifting in my chair, etc. I could very well have been driving someone crazy. Don't even get me STARTED about my nipple situation. And no one else seemed to be uncomfortable. About the cold, I mean. Why is this? What is wrong with me? I am very often cold. Who calibrated my body? They didn't do a very good jorb. It's not like I was born in Florida or anything. Acually, I was born and raised about 100 miles north of where I live now. Do you think I'm actually colder than everyone else? Is my body not as good at doing something as everyone else's? Or is my comfort level just different? I would rather be uncomfortably warm than uncomfortably chilly. I love comforters. I think more girls are like this than boys, but I'm not sure why. Maybe it's because boys are so hairy.

Darwin, my ass

Is there an alternate theory to the Theory of Evolution, that does not involve Creationism? There has to be. That can't be all we've got. Evolution always seemed a bit fishy to me. I mean, on a smaller scale, sure, animals evolve and whatnot. But to get from nothing to THIS? Please. That has to take more than just The Smarter Animals Killing The Dumber Animals And Marrying Other Smarter Animals. There has to be more to it.

I think I'll look into it. I'll bet that refuting the Theory of Evolution would make for many interesting party conversations.
