Bright side

On the bright side of things:

D and I leave for San Diego tomorrow, Mission Bay to be precise, for my Grandma's 80th birthday. We were really looking forward to it until we learned today there has been a RAW SEWAGE SPILL in Mission Bay and so it might be just a little stinky and cuts us off from hanging out in the water. Fortunately, they have other things to do at this resort like play tennis, hang by the pool and reek havoc on the rest of the property. Yes, this is the side of the family that nearly was thrown out of the Executive Inn in Oakland. One last summer get-away, it will be great to get together with family again - 4th time in 3 months and it doesn't get any better than this. My dad has 9 other siblings so getting everyone together is a challenge, to say the least.

I hope I am not looking too much into this statement however I was asked what my calender looks like, by my supervisor - in case I need to meet with the head of HR. She indicated, previously in the week, the chosen candidate will need to interview with the powers that be.

So... on that note a quick shout out to the universe, God or whoever is in charge - here is my request.

OK - Look, I don't ask for much, OK - maybe a little, but really, could you just throw me a freaking bone. Realizing that I want to be a teacher and though this does not fall into my career change goals - it would be fantastic if I could get this promotion pretty, pretty please with cherries, whipped cream, nuts and caramel syrup.

Ew, ok, so the water is out.
I am hoping you get that promotion and that it indeed comes with cherries, whipped cream, nuts and caramel sauce.

Lots and lots of good thoughts for you.

Okay, the sewage thing is disgusting, but the trip sounds like it will be fun nevertheless. Have a great time!

As for the job, I've got my fingers and toes crossed for you. Seriously, they think they could find a better candidate? I doubt it!

Oh gee wiz .... trip to SD sounds GREAT right about now. Don't know about the sewage part though ...

As for the bone part ... well, let's see what strings I can pull for you from the big Man upstairs. Don't know if he's in the mood to play "fetch" right about now.

I'll try my best though ... :-)

Have fun in SD. I will now always associate SD with meeting you!!
