Ceci n'est pas une personne.

I am suffering from geek envy.



And how to get my ass kicked in thirty seconds or less. Flaunt this ad in front of the various women I know.



And from my Father, Corporate lessons...



CORPORATE LESSON # 1

A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up her shower when the doorbell rings. After a few seconds of arguing over which one should go and answer the doorbell, the wife gives up, quickly wraps herself up in a towel and runs downstairs. When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next door neighbour.

Before she says a word, Bob says, "I'll give you $800 just to drop that towel that you have on".

After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands naked in front of Bob. Bob has a close look at her for a few seconds, hands over $800 and quietly leaves. Confused, but excited about her good fortune, the woman wraps back up in the towel and goes upstairs.

When she gets back to the bathroom, her husband asks from the shower "Who was that?"

"It was Bob the next door neighbour," she replies.

"Great," the husband says, "did he say anything about the $ 800 he owes me?"

MORAL OF THE STORY: Share critical credit information with your stakeholders to prevent avoidable exposure!



CORPORATE LESSON # 2

A priest was driving along and saw a nun on the side of the road, he stopped and offered her a lift which she gladly accepted. She got in and crossed her legs, forcing her gown to open and reveal a lovely leg. The priest had a look and nearly had an accident. After controlling the car, he stealthily slid his hand up her leg. The nun looked at him and immediately said, "Father, remember psalm 129?"

The priest was flustered and apologised profusely. He forced himself to remove his hand. However, he was unable to remove his eyes from her leg. Further on, while changing gear, he let his hand slide up her leg again. The nun once again said, "Father, remember psalm 129?" Once again the priest apologised. "Sorry sister, but the mind is weak.

Arriving at the convent, the nun got out, gave him a meaningful glance and went on her way.

On his arrival at the church, the priest rushed to retrieve a bible and looked up psalm 129. It Said, "Go forth and seek; further up, you will find glory."

MORAL OF THE STORY: Always be well informed in your job; or, you might miss great opportunities!



CORPORATE FINDING

Usually the junior executives and staff of the company generally play football; the middle level managers are more interested in tennis and the top management usually has a preference for Golf.

FINDING: As you go up the corporate ladder, the balls reduce in size.

This last weekend was so much fun I didn't want to stop and take pictures. We went up to Duck and Hell's place near Philo, and partied Friday night, then got up early and travelled to Camp & Son's, which is about 15 miles from Willits. I tried to get Jess (brokencrown) to come, but she was sick with the flu. It was so beautiful, and so much fun. Ran in to Evil Jason (dk) and Amber (weedlover). As we swam naked in the pond, surrounded by woods, watching people carefully sort their garbage, while listening to excellent electronic music, I felt like a modernday e-hippy. I didn't make it to the mud baths or the hot tubs, but maybe next year. :-)
