For Those of You Entering the Corporate World ;)

Lesson Number One
*****************
A crow was sitting on a tree, doing nothing all day.

A small rabbit saw the crow, and asked him, "Can I also sit like you and do nothing all day long?"
The crow answered "Sure, why not."
So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the crow, and rested.

All of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it.

Management Lesson:
To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up.


Lesson Number Two
*****************
A turkey was chatting with a bull. "I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree," sighed the turkey, "but I haven't got the energy."

"Well, why don't you nibble on some of my droppings?" replied the bull. "They're packed with nutrients."

The turkey pecked at a lump of dung and found that it actually gave him enough strength to reach the first branch of the tree.

The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch.

Finally after a fortnight, there he was proudly perched at the top of the tree.
Soon he was promptly spotted by a farmer, who shot the turkey out of the tree.


Management Lesson:
Bullshit might get you to the top, but it won't keep you there.


Lesson Number Three
*******************
When the body was first made, all the parts wanted to be Boss.


The Brain said, "I should be Boss because I control the whole body's responses and functions."


The feet said, "We should be Boss as we carry the brain about and get him to where he wants to go."
The hands said, "We should be Boss because we do all the work and earn all the money."

And so it went on and on with the heart, the lungs and the eyes until finally the asshole spoke up.

All the parts laughed at the idea of the asshole being the Boss. So the asshole went on strike, blocked itself up and refused to work.


Within a short time the eyes became crossed, the hands clenched, the Feet twitched, the heart and lungs began to panic and the brain fevered.

Eventually they all decided that asshole should be the Boss, so the motion was passed.


All the other parts did all the work while the Boss just sat and passed out the shit!


Management Lesson:
You don't need brains to be a Boss - any asshole will do.


Lesson Number Four
******************
A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold, the bird froze and fell to the ground in a large field.


While it was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on it. As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, it began to realize how warm it was.


The dung was actually thawing him out! He lay there all warm and happy and soon began to sing for joy.


A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate.


Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung and promptly dug him out and ate him!


Management Lessons:
1) Not everyone who drops shit on you is your enemy.
2) Not everyone who gets you out of shit is your friend.
3) And when you're in deep shit, keep your mouth shut!

So You Think You're Having a Bad Day?

All Fired Up!

Last Thursday night, Christine (my mentee) and I went to a SWE event for some pottery painting. The store, "All Fired Up!" is located behind "Scotty's Brewhouse" on the (Wabash) Landing.

When we entered the store, we were so spoiled for choices! There were so many pottery pieces that I think it took us a little under half an hour to finally choose our pottery pieces:

I chose the monkey bowl - It was too cute to resist ^_^.


Christine chose a cool wavy sushi plate!


Once the pieces were chosen, we sat down to paint them:


Check out the end results:

Christine's turned out really cool! I love the colored strips! I painted a decidedly feminine monkey - with lipstrick and nail polish =p :

All in all, it was an extremely enjoyable activity!

This Post is SoOoo Long Overdue...

I had a second surprise for my birthday... thanks to all those involved! You know who you guys are :)
Below are the cool gifts I received:

From my family, I received an AWESOME digital camera... I love it so much and am always using it... I love taking pictures :) Finally, my almost 10 year old camera can retire:


From Lyndel and Champin I received a beautiful Bath & Body Works hamper.... It's so pretty that I can't bring myself to use it - in fact it's still wrapped up nicely on my dresser :)

I also received customly designed Naruto CDs from Champin:


How professionally designed are these?!?!?! Yep, some people are just plain talented.

Oh, I also got myself something ^_^. Couldn't resist - and I can truly say this is from me because I bought this using my meager TA earnings :p

I'm learning to play the guitar :) I want to be talented too :D ( I would like to apologize to my roommies for any discomfort caused ^_^ )

The Reason for My Absence...

A couple of weeks ago I received an email about "stress".

In short, the email indicated that high levels of stress altered one's perception. To test the stress levels, a picture was attached to the email:


It was found that stress is directly correlated to the number of differences that one sees between the two (identical) dolphins in the picture.

I was immediately alarmed as I perceived that one of the alleged dolphins was a COW! I was definitely experiencing a great amount of stress... though I didn't realize this!

The email recommended that I take some time off, and I did... I'm feeling better now.

I'm slightly less stressed and can begin blogging again ;)

Random Thoughts of the Day

This morning as I brushed my teeth I realized that I LOVE my new toothbrush... It's such a fresh pastel mint-green color! It makes me feel so energized!

Not only is it such a pretty color, it also fits into the toothbrush holder that we have in our sink area:


And last but not least,my toothbrush is the same pastel mint-green color as my all-time favorite Excel spreadsheet background color!
