Leadership... I'm learning that leadership isn't just about doing what's right, having a work ethic, etc. Sometimes it's really about just doing more work and organizing those not wanting to be a leader. :)

Case in point...volleyball. Holy cow! I know 12 folks that want to play, but none of them wanted to actually step up and form a team! It's really not that painful. Once the momentum starts, it just rolls on it's own! Step up to the plate!

I was able to get 2 seperate teams signed up for this years league. I actually formed the one, paid, then will get reimbursed and remove myself from the roster. The other team is now formed, I'll have to go pay, and get reimbursed by those players.

Holy cow! Twice the work just to ensure a great sport has some great teams playing! OH MY!

You know a lot about US history, and you're opinions are probably well informed.
Congratulations on bucking stereotypes. Now go show some foreigners how smart Americans can be.

This one is actually pretty accurate. But I'd like to see others take it to know if they thought it was accurate.

Productive Monday

I love those days when you get about 10 hours of work done in 6 hours. Today was one of those days. I really don't like being this productive on Monday, but when awesomeness comes, who am I to deny?'s Monday! :)

Seriously, is it starting to leave the human race? I had a coworker today ask how we could erase the white board better. I said, "duh, clean the eraser and use a conditioner/cleaner on the white board!" Did he think that all the built up dried ink in the eraser magically went away?

He also was struggling finding accessories for his new 2000 Toyota Tundra. I did a google search and got gobs (well over 1 million sites) of hits back on accessories for the Tundra. He actually said this to me with a straight face, "How did you find all of those?"
I replied, "I did a google search."
He then said, again, completely in awe, "But what did you search for?"
"2000 Toyota Tundra Accessories...the exact thing you told me you are in need of finding!" I said in an alice-like voice.

A different coworker came up to me and said, "Jimmy (I hate it when they call me that), do you know where they moved my old files on the network drive?"
"Who is 'they' and to what files are you referring?" I shot back.
"The files that I used to have when I didn't work in this department." he says.
"You think I know where files that I never knew existed and were moved by someone that you won't define?" I said, again in an Alice-like voice. "Did you search the G: drive and the other network drive you have mapped?"

Seriously, are they stupid or do they just want me to do all of their work? You can't just hand me a roll of toilet paper and expect I'm going to wipe your nose and your ass when needed! I have REAL work to do!
