So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish

Some of you may have picked up that I have not been writing much in the last two months. In case you haven't noticed, please just let me know which type of coal you fancy - there's lignite, subbituminous, bituminous and anthracite. No reason, of course, I'm just curious.

Speaking of curiosity, I'm sure that some of you inquisitive types might actually wonder why I have not been writing. I could warn you of what happened to cats with such interests, but I won't. Instead, I would explain that I am in the process of switching jobs. It's been a hell of a challenge to balance my current job, my future job, and organizing the handover with my replacement. It's meant several weeks of night shifts that has thrilled Angie and tickled me pink. At least the skeleton crew of one came to an end today.

Speaking of today, it started out as per usual - Angie woke up and wanted to admire my hairy chest for hours.

'Woman, I don't have hours!'

'What the HELL are you talking about, Steve? I'm late - you're getting the kids ready!'

Okay, there may be a slight chance that I misunderstood her initial praise. To be honest, though, I was in the middle of a totally awesome dream, so I might not have been so receptive to reality.

'Fine, then - why don't you just go??!!'

'Okay, ba-bye.'

Man, talk about your all-time backfires. Luckily, over the years, I have grown accustomed to ignoring mean females.

When I got to work, I realized that I was totally not prepared for our team meeting; I simply did not have the time to fix the agenda. I am fairly decent at winging it, but I was pleasantly shocked when the team filled in the gaps with a true surprise. The collage of toilet paper art from my team really moved me. As I like to say at work, "SHIT HOT!".

Thank you, team - I will miss you!

3) What would you like to do tomorrow?

David: I want to play a little bit on the computer, maybe.
