Coffee break

I just found out that my boss had crystal surgery while he vacationing in Brazil. The CFO of a company, paid someone to wave crytals around his ears to fix his hearing and something unmentionable. He claims it worked. He was also still wearing his hearing aids. I fortunately have no details on the unmentionable.

Damn, I work in a crazy place.

Thats why I like it so much.

My old job wasn't crazy. It was professional and tough and would have been great for my career...except I don't want a career. At least not in the usual ladder climbing, glass ceiling breaking, hear me roaring, pantsuit wearing, 60 hour a week sense.

I'm smart, educated, capable...but mostly I just want to ride my bike and play. And spend time with my sweetie.

If I won the lottery, I would most definitely NOT continue working. Who are these people that answer that they would? I dont care if I had the best job in the whole wide world. I would quit it.

Sure, I would take that money and do something good and altruistic with it...but mostly I would just ride my bike and play. And spend time with my sweetie.

I'd move into a big old house with a huge dirt lot in the back for building dirt jumps and/or a pump track! :)

And work? No way. No way, no way.

Who's his guru? I need someone to clean my chakra too... this weekend i'm trying a rolfing for mini-me (the goiter) and a floatation tank (for fatigue). i'll try anything--including a brazilian crystal waving chakra cleanser. Do not mock the power of the aura my friend! (tee hee)

"I'm smart, educated, capable...but mostly I just want to ride my bike and play. And spend time with my sweetie."

and that my friend is exactly what makes you so damn smart and grounded. Grounded in the centered sense not in the "oops I'm in trouble again sense" (that would be my life =)

I want to retire in 5 years, but I'm not calling it retiring its more like redefining.

take a look at these cards here: http://www.purespiritcreations.com/store.htm#cards (Living on the lighter side cards). My favorites are psychic reading and aura cleansing.

There is definitely something to be said about having a job you love and making time to play. As we all know, you never know what can happen.
Flandria, As for Menopause, I'm not so sure it's that great.....I want to put it off as long as possible..

somebody once asked me if i was into this type of healing, something they felt from my aura as i walked into the room....

I'm with ya.....quit the job and have the biggest bicycle collection ever. Plus, I'd probably get everyone I know a bicycle - and more bicycles. Bicycles everywhere!

I've always thought I would work part-time if I won the lottery, but I have never dealt well with free time (me = tweaker).

My boy has big plans to start his own pro team when he wins, and I could probably be convinced to consider that my job...assuming he'd hire me :).

Oh, I'm quite certain I would be busy...play does not mean lounging.

But I wouldn't want paid work. I would want to work on my terms. Because, if someone is paying you, no matter how awesome the job, its never on your terms.
