The Jobs Report

JAW Fan informs me that once again his job is on the chopping block. I think I should have a standard paragraph ready whenever this subject comes up so I can just cut-and-paste it annually. He could know as early as before his Mexican getaway whether he is a) chopped b) left alone or c) relocated. c) appears to be the ideal scenario as it could be to an office very close to his home. On the other hand, it is turns out a) is the answer, then he will be more than close to home, he will be at home. Let us await further developments...

In my job news, Smoothie contacted me yesterday because his sister works in recruitment in a big company that is in a similar field to my esteemed employer. And her big company needs an editor, and she wanted to receive my c.v. So, why the heck not, thought I. Sister-of-Smoothie (SOS) now has my life in her hands, or at least my work life story. I don't expect anything to come of this, but let us await further developments...

may j-fan's employer relocate his job to a mexican beach
-and may SOS send you to a cuban resort (but NOT via a leaky italian cruise ship--if so: pack a life jacket)

If I do lose my job, I have it all figured out...I will move in with you!

Plus side:
Chips will be a-plenty (and, if I'm lucky, lots o' Olive Bread, too)

Negative side:
One of us will be murdered by the end of the first month.

If you are unemployed and living with me, you will have lots of spare time to shovel the CPN's snow back onto his property! I like this idea.

(WINTER SCENARIO):Until I call you at work to come bail me out of jail, because CPN was found dead with shovel marks on the back of his skull.

(SUMMER SCENARIO):Until I call you at work to come bail me out of jail, because Mrs. CPN was found dead with an iron mark on the back of her skull.

(ALTERNATE SUMMER SCENARIO): Something about them having both been pelted with an assortment of condiments and bottles of alcohol.

On second thought, why waste good alcohol? A solid pelting by condiments should suffice.

can Mr. and Mrs. A come and watch?

If there is one thing we do abhor,
It's the crazy folks who live next door.
Shoveling snow onto Nanuk's lawn
And doing the ironing outside at dawn
Putting their laundry over the fence
(Can people really be that dense?)
And always eating outside in summer
Sorry, Nanuk, that's quite a bummer!
But here's some good news, so do not fear,
The world ends in December this year!

Thanks, I think.
