Do they know it's Christmas...and Kwanza?

welcome..trevorizing, i must admit I am quite intrigued by your username.

It seems time is short and possibly bald... So much i wanted to write but not enough time to type it out...

Wow, tons of bad news at my work. Our sexy Scotsman just got the most horrible news about his family. Just a few minutes ago My boss came into the office and closed the door behind him. He had more bad news, they are announcing layoffs in Seattle and portland today. Steve said, my Friend Jeremy in portland is most likely going to get the ax. I am hopeful that he is not. He has two kids that he takes care of all by himself. I can't believe they are doing this right before Christmas. they will work through the end of the year and get a months severance... but Damn, it's just not right to tell them days before christmas. This reminds me of when HR called Dana on her personal cell phone on a day she had taken off of work for her birthday, to tell her she was being demoted. The bitch knew it was her birthday and knew she was in vegas celebrating, yet still called her on her personal cell phone.

I want to end this on a sort of odd up-note. i am so thankful my mom is still around for christmas. christmas is such a big deal for her, it is unquestionably her favorite time of the year. it takes her two weeks to get all the decorations up. i wonder if she put up less this year. i'll find out in a few hours. Earlier last year when my mom's health was spiraling so quickly and taking her sanity I was very worried, but on the day they finally took her kicking a screaming to the hospital. The day she was so crazy that after the five or so firemen finally forced her into the ambulance, blaze, the family dog, thew up she was so upset.


On this day My Aunt Lex called me in a panic about my moms help. She wanted to console me, but she ended up practically putting me in tears in the middle of Target. The voice that echos in my mind of my aunt saying those horrible, horrible words, "Christmas won't be Christmas without your mother. i don't think she going to make it to Christmas." But she did, and now she is making it to another one. I think she has quite a few Christmas parties ahead of her.

I will try to get back online in the LBC but dial up is so slow!

Shhh ... don't tell anyone, but I'm going to the gym every day so that I can actually live up to my username at some point. ;) (Pics to be posted in journal on my birthday in two months. *crossing fingers*)

Speaking of pictures, picture 23 of your "Many Faces of Monkey" is, like, hot with repeated capital Ts. Just thought I would share that.

haha, I love it. I really need to start going to the Gym again myself. Actually I hate the gym, I just need to work out more. Thank you for the compliment! I had the doped-up-look nailed in that picture.

Qu'est-ce que fuck? What kind of sadistic company do you work for? I thought HR was always the touchiest-feeliest part of any company.

It just isn't fair.
Monkey. I am so sorry that this Christmas has been such a nightmare for you and others I know. I'll keep your mom in my prayers. I know you are most likely home by now and enjoying the love of your Mom and Family.

*hugs*
