THE Boss »


Rather interesting picture I’m putting up.  It was taken Saturday afternoon at the office and is indicative of why I started this with ‘Help.’

We work a lot of Saturdays – and quite a few Sundays, too.  It’s a tough business and you do whatever it takes or you won’t be in business long.  Andy Grove had it right, ‘Only the paranoid survive.’

However, this Saturday everyone was off – except for me – and I’m never off.  I came down to the office to review the proposed departmental budgets.  When I opened the door, it was immediately clear that Meredith’s menagerie was out of their servers.  And as disquieting as that is, I’ve learned the hard way that when they get bored, they’re less destructive to the office than they are to the servers.  (Two weeks ago, all of our e-mails were ‘mysteriously’ translated into Klingon!)

From the sounds, they were clustered somewhere back in programming so I started working on the budgets.

About fifteen minutes later, the sounds migrated to this end of the building and I looked up to see Jocelyn zoom by in a desk chair being pushed by George.  Despite myself, I had to grin.  I’d done the same things back in graduate school.  We didn’t have a ‘circuit’ like we do in this office, so we had ‘drags’ in the hallway of the third floor of the Engineering Labs Building every Friday afternoon.  That went on for half a semester until one of the guys didn’t get shut down quick enough and road a chair down a flight of stairs.  The Dean officially banned chair racing, but of course that didn’t stop it.  We just held it three hours later after the building had cleared out.  The time didn’t make any difference to us.  Engineering grad students never go home.

From the increasing level of female squeals, shrieks, and screams it was obvious that their racing had gotten into high gear and that I wasn’t going to get much work done.  I went out to shoo them back to programming.  When I stepped out of the office, what you see is what I saw.

Apparently side by side racing wasn’t exciting enough for these refugees from the Saturday Morning Cartoons, so they were running the circuit in opposite directions in Demolition Derby fashion.  By the way, that’s Jocelyn’s feet coming around the corner from the lower right just before all four of them piled it up in a massive head-on collision.

I went back to the budgets while they sorted out polygons.  At least they were quiet while they did it.  About that time, Meredith showed up at the office and I left it up to her to get the Wild Bunch herded back down to the programming department.

Visualize trying to run a business under these conditions and you can understand why I said, ‘Help!’

This is a large collection of pictures that show some of my day to day activities around MeredithLand™ both at work and during my free time.  Roger took a lot of these, but certainly not all.  Some of these are kinda sexy — some are VERY sexy — and some are just plain fun!  Everyone gets into the act, too.  You’ll be hearing from me, Roger, Jocelyn, Miss DNA, THE Boss, Connie, Kyla, and some of the other folks around the office — and Rick, Steven, George, Jeffrey, Tomás, April, Karl, and a few others will be showing up in time, too!

This is another gallery that ranges from serious to “not so serious.” It’s a collection of pictures about people — except one of them isn’t a “person” but he’s still a VERY important friend to me.  We’ll be adding a lot more dedications to this one as time goes on.  And Meredemon, (four syllables, “Mare Uh Dee Mun,”) will be getting her own gallery at some point also!  She’s gonna be back to create just a few tiny little problems!  You’d do well to stay on your best behavior!!  And Miss Grzinchwallow will also be showing up in time to bring out the very worst behavior in me!!!

Holy Cats!!  I finally made it to California!  And to the Pacific!  And the Mountains!  Woo-Hoo!!  My boyfriend Roger and I had a really terrific time staying at the house of THE Boss’ friend.  It was super fancy and overlooked the Pacific — really fabulous!  And — I know that pictures of other people’s vacation are usually really boooring — but I’ll bet that you’re really gonna like the shots that silver tongued Roger took of his “favorite scenery!!” We’ve got another trip west planned for the future.  You’ll get to see even more “towering peaks!”
