Humor and history today, maybe more later when I have a little more spare time on my hands.

The humor comes from a co-worker. Just two of us holding down the fort today. The history comes from one of my CNET newsletters.
Well, the assessment went better than imagined. I am "transitional". I still have a job, though I have to undergo another review in 3 months. This whole communication thing .... it seems like the only person I am good at communicating clearly and effectively with is Tim (thank God he has the patience to deal with my ramblings). But .. the good news is that I still have a full time job. At the very end I brought up the possibility of time-sharing since I'm going to be moving an hour away and the commute is hell come winter (you'd think that Oregonians would know how to drive in the rain ......). On to more pressing things.... I wish it were Friday....
Today is my assessment at work. Normally this wouldn't bother me, but lately things haven't been that great here and both me and my boss know it. Usually I am confident about the job that I do, but even I know that I have been performing sub-par. And with this economy and the fact that a first -year college student could do my job .... it isn't inspiring. It's been said before that a trained monkey could do my job, and it's true. Just follow the yellow-brick (paper-strewn, e-mail heavy) road and you can be a pixel-pusher too. Off to the guillotine.....
Yesterday I came across a few really interesting sites gwbush.com and The Complete Bushisms. Now, both Tim and I can honestly say that we didn't vote for him (various reasons), but this is going to be long four years. I'm wondering if Clinton would win if he ran again. Now wouldn't that be something (no folks, I don't want Clinton back in the White House, but he at least spoke grammatically correct English and knew how to work with people).
