For some reason it didn't really sink in that tomorrow is Wednesday till this morning! I am supposed to be on the road in a little more than 24 hours! I have not packed, have not done my hair, have not done NOTHING! I had a whole day yesterday to get my act right and I treated it like I had nothing on my to do list. Like this trip was next week or something. Now I gotta rush tonight! AGH! My fault.
I am not in Christmas mode, yet I keep getting "presents". A few of my peoples are getting rid of stuff prepping for the new stuff coming to them. The old stuff stuff works and guess who is getting most of it? ME! So far I've got movies, an all in one printer, a newer monitor (which is on time cuz the computer monitor I use now is starting to short), and a griddle! Since 2010 is the year of me cooking it up to save money the griddle comes in handy! The movies are one's I have not seen before so when I am home and need to get my head out the books, I have something free to get my head off body parts and function! Merry Christmas to meeeeeeeeeeeee!
In a few hours I will know if I will have to quit the state job. I am going to ask my supervisor if it's cool I work Wednesday's starting in February (for the first month I have to be on campus on Wednesdays :-( ) and the occasional Saturday. They have been so accommodating these last 7-8 years, I don't see why they would say no now. Ok so I went and talked to my admin, who is over my supervisor that I planned on speaking w/first but she still not here yet. On my way to her office I saw her in the hall, she wished me a Merry Christmas, gave me a hug, asked about Pooka and what Santa had for her, so forth and so on. We chat and I tell her that she was the one I wanted to see. We go in her office and I shut the door behind me.
"I'm not letting you quit, so if that's what you have to tell me you can gon' walk back out the door" my super. said jokingly in her stereotypical sweet at pie older country white woman voice.
"Ummmmm not really." I replied through a smile because she pretty much answered my question.
"It's not bad news is it?"
I sat down in the super comfy chair that rests in front of her big cherry wood desk. "Yes and No."
I explained to her my deal and before I could ask her if everything was cool she said...
"Ladynay do what you got to do. You know how I feel about education and you know you'll always have a spot as long as I'm the one making decisions around here. Just let me know when you are here and not going to be here so I know when to look for you."
The work sucks, but I love my administrator! :-D
This morning I heard a song by Wale (sp) called Pretty Girls. It's a go-go song. I commend Russ Parr for playing him at 7:15 this morning cuz I needed a boost. It's rare to hear go-go music in NC unless someone is pumping a cd they got. I give the artist Wale the side eye for putting Gucci Man on the darn track! WTF? For real? It's a go-go song! I know music is doing a lot of crossing but nahhhhhhhh man! I was in the car getting my dance on getting all prepped to go up north and took a pause when Gucci started rapping. I just don't get it! Go Go artist can take rap songs (and any other songs) and put some percussion behind it and that's great and acceptable. Just leave the rap artist out of the record. It's just wrong for some reason. I can't explain it! I also can't explain why folks that did not grow up in the DC metro area can't get into go go music. Something wrong with them! LOL!
