Another work week Done! I was training someone this week. Really not to bad, the woman I was training is one of my favorite people at work, she's very sweet. So...one of the things I was required to do this week was pour up a new Acid Bath. Which means dressing in plastic and mixing acid and HF until you have a mixture of 5 parts water to 1 part Acid. (hence called 5:1 HF) Anyway...Before you snooze off....The point of this, was my trainee was doing a double check on a tool and I told her as I walked by that I was going to go get my Acid Gear. Both she and the guy she was double checking said, "what?" I said "I am going to go get my Acid Gear" They started laughing. Seems they both thought I said "I am going to go get my Ass in Gear!" Which was true too, totally unmotivated day.

I was visiting my sister that lives near Denver, last week. She's been reading my blog, and I've been naming my others sisters, Chatter, Spaz.....She asked what I was gonig to call her...I couldn't think of anything at the time, but suddenly the PERFECT Nickname hit me while I was...I don't know....taking a shower or something. Now, understand, I love my sister dearly and give her this nickname with the UTMOST affection. She hence forth will be called B*tch. And before anyone gets upset, I'm sure when she reads this, she will laught the hardest.

Some weird hormonal glitch happened during her last pregnancy. Well, her 4th pregnancy, not telling for sure if its her actual LAST one or not. She has three boys and this last one was a girl. Anyway - for some reason during this time, she just started calling me a B*tch, all the time which was quite funny. Even funnier was the time she looked my 20yr old son Yoshi in the eye and said "your a son of a b*tch!" Luckily he understood pregnant women are nuts. Or, my family is nuts, one of the two, or both.

So I have 4 sisters. From oldest to youngest....Missalissa,Chatter,MEEEE,B*tch and Spaz. I've not come up with a good nickname for my hubby. He's a carpenter, so something like Hammerguy. I don't know.

Okay, nuff for now, I'll try and write more often.

Interesting week at work? I took today off, friends in town visiting. Anyway...lets see I worked in the Bermuda Triangle this week. Three machine's notorious for issues, lets see Sunday, two were up, once came up, Monday in the morning all three were up, one went down in middle of shift the other dropped end of shift, I came in Tuesday to One machine up, which went down briefly. Added to that, I was in that corner working next to a woman they call "Kathy Bates". She's really okay, but she talks alot, she's up one moment and in the dumps the next, she plots dozens of ways daily to get herself out of her finacial bind. My specialist told me she'd watched me during the morning and I would walk from machine to machine working, fixing lots, fixing machines and Kathy was right behind me talking, talking,talking. Whats funny is I didn't notice! I tuned her out. :grins:

I can do this, because, I have a sister...that talks virtually non-stop. Let me share two stories about her. One time I'm in the car and she tells me some guy called...he was asking her what she was wearing...etc. Now my sister, I'll call her Chatter. Well, she's a innocent, pure of heart a truely really wonderful person.....who just can't stop talking due to problems with learning disabilities and stuff. ANYWAY - Its clear to me, the guy was leading up to phone sex by the things she was telling me he was saying, she was clueless to this - Anyway, it seems she answered some of his questions, just honestly...then I asked what she talked about and she said she told him all about her cat, and how my cat died...I'm kind of laughing inside, and ask her what finally happened, she said, he finally just hung up, I asked how long they talked........TWO HOURS! I had to laugh!! the Idjit man! Okay, then another time we get in the car, I'm driving her home from somewhere that will about two hours....and I'm getting a migraine, so i ask her to Please...not to talk, I've a terrible Migraine. She starts telling me how she can be quiet, sometimes she likes to look out the window....silence is nice....she doesn't mind...she'll just look out the window, maybe she will see or Deer, remember the time L hit a deer? Little fawns are so cute, I'm glad L didn't hit a fawn.............Etc, you get the picture, after 30 minutes I said again, PLEASE....I'm really getting a migraine...and she started the same conversation all over again. So, Compared to my sister I love dearly....this woman can compete for talking. Its said, I tune out sometimes on her (Chatter) even when i'm TRYING to listen.

Okay back to my work....Okay so I get my Review this week. I really got a spectacular review got virtually Max points in every Category except...Attendance, I missed work 1/19/03, 4/12/03 and 4/14/03. Which Drops me from getting and "A" Rating to a "C" rating. I think they over weigh Attendance, I really do. So, I wanna know...How I got "15" points for Productivity, being one of the MAX outputters, added to the fact that I fix peoples machines and mentor everyone (actually said that in my review, I do incredible amounts of work and yet tune machines AND Mentor people as I go) how was I so fantastic, if I was abusing my email so horribly that I had to be written up? Gah. what a load of Crap...well, I am fantastic :grins: The load of crap is I don't abuse my email. ::grumbles::

Oh, So Monday I'm walking into the airlock and the Tech I use to work with is smocking up, I said Hiya...

Tech: Morning, wow you look tired, not sleep well.
Me: (Actually feeling FINE) Um :laughs: I'm fine, not feeling tired actually.
Tech: :groans: Nice huh, just like saying "good morning you look like crap"
Me: laughs

Isn't this the truth? LOL Men. :grins: however since ALL he could see were my eyes...I didnt' take this too personal...added to that, once I got to bathroom, I saw my eyes were pretty red....seems I'm having allergy problems this year...odd, very rare for me.

Overheard in airlock:
woman: i should know, I've been with lots of men.
man: ya, but I'm different...so it doesn't apply to me.

::shakes head:: wonder what they were talking about and wow, announcing to darn near WORLD that you sleep around a lot??? The girl couldn't have been 20.

Okay well I probably have to do something useful. I also need to get ahold of my sister and figure out how to put links in here.
