I live for the moment at the end of the greatest showman when the elephants come charging out of the smoke. Gives me tingles every time.

Ok, ok, I'm awake. Isn't that good enough?

 

No.  In addition to being conscious, I further demand that you be of good cheer with a spring in your step and a smile on your face.  In fact, if you are not the most insufferable sort of bright-eyed morning person, full of pep and good vibes, I can assure you there will be most dreadful consquences.  You may, for example, be allowed to only consume donuts with neither glaze nor sprinkles.  This will continue until you decide to be a team player and your morale improves.  As a sign of good faith and my full confidence that you will choose the right path, you may now indulge yourself with one or more pastry confections of your choosing.

You sure you're on the east coast?  You seriously sound like the folks in Montreal atm! 

 

Note: I've no problem with the city, or people who live there. It's the upper management at work that my beef is with. :ph34r:

Vile villainy! That’s low, evil, and several other adjectives that would get filtered.

I got enough plain donuts for everyone, sir.  I've even got some with raisins.

Finally got back from the city after waiting the better part of 7 hours in the car. Molly's surgery went well, all still indicates it was just a lipoma that somehow formed. They'll still send it to pathology to confirm nothing weird about it. Mass hadn't grown into any muscle tissue, they only had to remove the underlying skin and fat layers, so she won't have any impairment to her neck/throat function. She has to stay the night at the hospital, but I can call and ask about her at any time (which I will of course do at least twice, I wager). And she should be able to come home tomorrow.

 

That was a long 7 hour wait. Lot of stress eating (packed a snack bag), several cans of Coke (or as our Scottish friends call it, the "fizzy black full fat juice"), and sooo much hand sanitizer used (because it's become such a habit now). The look of "aren't you coming with me?" on Molly's face when they took her from the car was enough to make me sick in the stomach. Almost boaked.

Oh no!

That's one of the biggest fears of every pet owner.

 

Could they tell you if it's a slow or fast spreading kind?

Depending on the treatment and age of the dog it can make a difference.

Stupid disease.

 

So I got Dixie an appointment for next Tuesday to have the mass evaluated at the animal hospital. To help save some money on tests, the family vet coordinated with them and tomorrow Dixie gets dropped off at the vet for a full blood panel and chest x-rays. Honestly, that soon of an appointment was far better than what I was expecting them to get. I suspect the tests and eval will determine who (family vet vs hospital) will remove the mass (because there is only the one mass... positive thinking... positive thinking...).

Sounds like at least a little bit of good news, so I'm happy to hear that.

I'll continue sending positive waves in the hopes of more good news.

Really feels like a sub-optimal day all around.  Going to drag my three girls for flu shots this afternoon with the oldest getting a blood draw as well.  Then time for a snack before a 6pm mass in honor of my father in law.  He passed away some time in early Februrary but didn't want a funeral.  We were supposed to do a family reunion in the summer to have some sort of memorial, but the US/Canada border's been closed.  So our local church is doing this.  In anticipation of having a lot of cranky teenage girls I bought chocolate cake.

I had a decently optimistic job interview today, so that's good.

@Mad Jack hang in there.  Talk is cheap, but that's all I've got at the moment.

 

 Wasn't  quite as bad as it could have been - they only needed to cut the rotors on the front, so it only cost me $360 instead of the $550 it might have...

However, now that I went and took $600 out of the bank to cover it, I have no easy way to put the rest of the money back into my account - my credit union has changed it's hours because of the virus and the lobby is now only open from 12- 3pm... :rolleyes:  I'll probably have to stop at the drive-through teller window and ask for a deposit slip so I can put it back.

the things that I do that are not the job im supposed to do far outweigh the number of things I do that are my job.

 

Unfortunately someone has to do them

 

  Consider me in the same boat. I'm in the Shipping department at work. I'm a warehouse guy. However, the management (in their infinite wisdom) has decreed that one person from Shipping and one person from Compounding have to work in the Filling dept. until further notice.

So now I'm packing a line in Filling every day. Except when the material handler is out, and I get to do his job. :rolleyes:

So most days I end up having to do all three jobs over the course of the day - people expect me to handle the material handling for the line I'm on, and when we don't have the components immediately on hand they expect me to run down to the first floor to fetch them, bring them up on the elevator, to know if we have more available and when more will be arriving from the other warehouse when we're out of them... :rolleyes:

 

Just because I can do half the damn job in the factory doesn't mean I can do them all at once.

I hated Filling when I used to do it back when I was a temp, and was about a week or two away from quitting when they hired me for the Shipping dept.

   Remember, next time you want to throw a tantrum, you have to throw your hands in the air dramatically, throw your head backwards while screaming, then flop face first onto the floor. Try channeling a Spanish soap opera actor to achieve the appropriate level of drama.

I keep envisioning the Maxwell Q. Klinger System For Filing while you are describing this.

You heard about Eddie Van Halen?

I think most of the world has heard about the passing of Eddie Van Halen.

You basically need to be completely disconnected from all media sources to not have heard it mentioned.

An incredibly talented Rock Guitarist whose influence will be felt for decades yet to unfold.
