In an instant

Well today I was working the expo. I had mixed feelings because while I enjoy that kind of stuff, I’m an introvert. And this year I led the whole thing … for our booth anyways.

As luck would have it, I see a lady standing in our line, coming one step closer to take her turn at the can smash.. In an instant.

Me: Janelle?

Janelle: Yes. Who are you?

Me: I’m gonna cry. I’m Jill. I remember your sweet mamma.

Janelle: Yes! Of course I know you.

And we hugged. And it was like yesterday. Sitting in her living room watching our parents sing.

She tells her friend how our parents were in a Czech choral group but also my dad and her mom were somehow related. A common thread was their grandma with 21 children. Lol.

The human connection. Now my eyes are leaking. I miss my parents. If you’re lucky enough to have them and the relationship is good, maybe you could give them a call?

As always more to come.

I overheard this liner yesterday. One thing about being back at the mothership is the “variety”.

I’m in the bathroom so you’re going to hear me flush.

We all heard her conversation which could’ve waited. She came bounding out of the stall. Phone attached to her right ear. I am a borderline germaphobe already. So gross.

File This Under Easily Amused

So I’m laughing to keep from crying. Considering I’ve just been kicked to the curb by my doctor. Concierge my a$$.


We got a group email at work … some sort of random test related to our servers. The email was accidentally sent to the whole company; not just the affected people. And you would be absolutely surprised (or maybe not so surprised) at the number of people replying all and saying do not reply all. Or replying all to take me off this distro. Or replying all to say I don’t use that server. As if they even know. How stupid does one have to be to reply all and say not to as if hours later they’re the first with that idea. Re-donk-a-donk. 

At least one guy was funny. He said “please do not rely all except for me. I spam you! 🤣”. And he sure enough did. Wonder who the sender is and whether he is in trouble (because it was a dude per the signature block).


As always more to come.
