Life is too short to read a bad book.

Well, I got deemed "Employee of the Day" today. Just in fun. I had somebody ask me the age-old question: "How are you?" Well, I could have lied and said fine ~ instead, I replied "I would rather be hung upside down on the Rims by my toenails in a red dress than be here today." Well, I'm good for a laugh if nothing else.

I gave a presentation to the CEO today and it went really well. I even got an "Atta-girl." I was told I was going to be playing a key part in the changes that we will be implementing in the near future as far as retention and employee morale goes. What that means, I have no idea. But I was told I did an excellent job of marketing what we needed and our vision for the future of our organization. So ~ yay me.

PS ~ The Rims are sandstone cliffs that surround our town ~ very beautiful, very regal. This is a picture of them.

    Jen ~ Thanks! I can't take credit for the picture though ~ I found it on the web.

    Mailyn ~ Thanks. I very rarely ever say "fine", unless I'm really not (to the point where I don't want to talk to anybody). Otherwise, I always have some comment.

    Hey that's awesome Devonna. Glad to hear you're getting some recognition.

    Beautiful picture. Wouldn't mind having that to look at where I lived. How far away are you from that area?

    Stacy ~ We're actually in the valley right under them. They virtually surround the town ~ it's an amazing view to go up there at night and see the lights of the town.

    LMAO, you'd really rather be hanging upside down in a red dress? Dude, you brave woman you...haha.

    CONGRATS on the 'atta girl too, great job sweets!

    Glad you had a great day at work. Since I'm not fluent in any kind of business lingo I have no clue what was said to you ;)

    So, what colour would you strappy shoes be? You would have kickass heals on right?

    The rims look that good?? I will have to take a closer look at them when I visit your town this weekend!

    I always loved having a great day at work. Super boost to the ego and it is always nice to know you are appreciated and that you are doing a good job :)

    Dylan ~ Well, it's a better answer than "fine". :-) I try to be creative.

    Cindy ~ Hmmm...strappy sandals? Hadn't thought about it. Probably red with jeweled accents?

    Jen ~ They're beautiful, really. You'll have to have a look-see when you come to town.

    Izzy ~ Thanks :-) The picture's not mine, but it was one of the better ones I found.
