Random Crap

Update on Boss

I come in this morning, fire up my computer and open Outlook. I peruse my emails and see that we have an all staff meeting this morning at 8:30 (Who schedules meetings at freaking 8:30 AM!!!). Anyway, we all file into the conference room after which we find the VP of Enterprise Services standing at the podium in front of the auditorium. After giving us a few updates about our company (i.e. we were just sold…yada, yada, yada) he then says, “ We’d also like to inform you all that “Boss” is no longer with “Company”. I don’t want to go into it any further but I wanted to squash the rumor mill rather quickly. It was the best decision all way around.”

So there you have it. She’s out of a job as well as potentially out of a marriage.


My weekend

This was my birthday weekend so a girlfriend and I decided to go to NY to see Wicked on Broadway. Can I tell you that was probably the best play I have ever seen!!!! It was phenomenal! For all my Sex and The City fans (that is so my favorite TV show OF ALL TIME!!) Julia Murney played Elphaba (The wicked witch). She was the woman that attempted to out last Samantha during their “fight” for the GORGEOUS Smith at that Raw restaurant. Remember? If you don’t you’re not a REAL fan!! LOL Anyway, she was absolutely phenomenal!! I can’t say that enough. You all HAVE to go to NY and see Wicked on Broadway.

Before the play, however, we decided to eat dinner at Gallagher Steakhouse right around the corner from the theater. Last year there we had impeccable service. Absolutely stellar. This time, however, not so much. Our server ignored us the whole entire evening. A different server took our drink orders. The busboy brought desert menus after dinner and asked if we wanted dessert once he realized we’d been sitting there for like 50 minutes with a cleared table and no attention from our server. I was really pissed off by being ignored this way. Our server spent so much time chatting up the other tables, it was ridiculous. I was getting furious. We decided to tip the busboy because he was more attentive then the server and we tipped the server only 10% and then complained to the manager. I was so tempted to just leave the dude NOTHING!!!


Dating

Mr. Construction came over last night after I got back from NY with balloon and a birthday card in hand. It was really sweet. We just sat around and watched a DVD and ate take out. It was a great evening. He is really starting to get caught up and that’s fine by me because I like him too.

The Manager has been really attentive lately. I’ve been impressed. He messed up slightly this weekend but I’m sure he will make it up to me tonight or tomorrow.

The Analyst is still being himself. He purchased a new car Friday and asked me to go with him to pick it up. That was fine. No problem, but on the way he started questioning me on Mr. Construction. I sooooo did not want to have that conversation with him so I eventually changed the subject. It’s weird talking to your ex about the new guy you are dating. Way weird.

I think that’s it for now. Oh, one of my co-workers brought me in some homemade crab soup!!! I can’t wait to dig into that.

Ok, I’m going to make my rounds to your blogs today so see you later.

Happy Birthday.

Sounds like you've got a whole lot going on- how do you keep track?

Happy Birthday! Mr. Construction sounds really sweet. When are you going to cut the others loose? Actually, it's more fun reading about 3, so whatever.

Oh no - your boss! Do you think she got fired because of the chaos in her personal life? I bet that had something to do with it.

Opinionated Diva said...

Happy Belated Birthday!

I keep hearing good things about Wicked. I'll get around to seeing it one of these days.

Sounds like a fabulous birthday, except for the stupid waiter.

Too bad your boss is gone. The drama of the whole divorce could have made work that much more interesting.

Anywho....I've been hearing wicked was wicked [LOL]. Glad to hear you really enjoyed it.

Ann(ie) said...

Happy belated bday, diva. I'm behind on my blog reading....I hope you had a wonderful day. I think you were nice to leave that moron 10%!! I think seeing a show would make for a perfect bday. xoxo.

Sojourner G said...

Why did the bosses situation go EXACTLY like I thought it would? Tsk. The company should have given you a plaque or something as an apology for being forced to be involved in that foolishness.

So...the world continues to turn with Construction, Manager, and who else? This is like Miles, Chains and Cass! Keep me posted. This is food for the story LOL!

MysTery said...

Sorry for the Bossy! Good luck with the dating game!

Thomas said...

Weird! Guy Rule #23 is to not ask your ex about who she is dating now.
