        I hate corporate politics. Just got yelled at for my supervisor not tell her supervisor about something I was working on with his supervisor. Heaven help I went to the decision maker to get something done thus this chicken-crap only further supporting why I have limited trust with my direct superiors. Everyone knew the info, they were just bent out of shape who they knew it from. This place is so fornicatingly process oriented. Screw the outcomes. Shoot me in the face with rocksalt!

        Venting complete. Thank you, you may now return to your regularly scheduled program.

          Careful. Turth & Rich'll get after you about politicizing a food blog. ;)
          Seriously, I'm with you 100%. Can't stand the politix & I don't want to get involved. I just want to do my job and go home. Turns out the candidate for the eng. position accepted and will start on 2/11. It'll be interesting to see how he handles politix.

          And to all a good night!

          I mean it was so good it'll be on plenty of reruns. I did not realize those three were up to their antics as far back as 2006. Awesome!

      Thanks! I'm not the gambler, my BF is. I like the dining experiences we've had. Harrah's has The Range Steakhouse where you can sit and overlook the river flowing by while dining. And I mean dining. It's also interesting to see how the river level rises and drips throughout the day. In the morning it's been VERY low, then as more water is released over the dam the water level rises until the water taxis can work.

    Good morning. I'm late because a meeting with my VP got moved up at the last minute. All done now except the to-do that I to-got.

    Lots of storms and wind here last night but nothing compared to the mid and south east coasts. I hope our friend RH survived his trip to NC and is headed back home safely. Sir B, I assume you got through the DC problems ok?

      Thanks, but no issues here other than just a lot of wind and rain. Had some pretty bad flooding in the burbs that made the news but fared well and the sun is currently shinning on my back. Anything major in your neck of the woods?

        No, just lots of wind and rain overnight, still have power so that's a good thing. I guess all the weak trees and branches came down last year so we're safe for a while.

    Good morning all!
    Does the Klatch now have a waitstaff? If so, they are going to be leaving lipstick on the cups. May need to install a new dishwasher.

    Great day ahead here! Just wrapped up annual audit, so I will be outside looking at the rainbows and unicorns. Nice to have that in the rearview...

      Odd. I was just thinking yesterday how women my age never wear lipstick anymore. I like it.

      I just now saw this on tv at lunchtime, and based on your comment earlier this morning about rainbows and unicorn felt I had to share this warning with you.....watch out for the unicorn p00p.

        I am an unemployed, uncultured, uneducated husband and father to a wonderful, phenomenal family and I am home trying to do something constructive and be a positive contributor to the space that i occupy. Thank you for asking.

          Welcome to the group. You'll find, if you already haven't, we're pretty much a light hearted group of sarcastic folks who enjoy food and have formed an informal bond over the past few years on here.

        I get squeamish during dental cleanings, so I have never sought that little clip out.

        What is truly disturbing to me though, is that someone was depraved enough to even think that up, you know?

        • Sir Biddle

          If dental cleanings get you worked up, I would avoid that little clip for certain.

          The world is full of very, very disturbing people. The movie Seven comes to mind.

          I got about 1.5 minutes through it before the dry heaves forced me to shut it down. Check out the YouTube videos of people's reactions to the clip. Some of funniest clips out there.
