Fishpond is an Aussie site, very similar to the Book Depository. I ordered a few books last week, and was notified today that they are in the post. The books haven’t arrived yet, but I’m impressed so far.
Aishwarya Rai is getting married! If you don’t know who she is, take a look. A gentle introduction to Bollywood films is her 2005 film, Bride & Predjudice – a Bollywood interpretation of Pride & Prejudice (Jane Austen). I challenge you not to fall in love with her a little bit. Quite possibly one of the most beautiful women in the world (in my opinion), and not a bad actress to boot. I wish her well.
So. My day.
If you’ve seen me lately, you’ll know that work isn’t a barrel of laughs. I am feeling more and more like I am swimming with sharks while some bastard is trying to stand on my head, while some other bastard is taking pot shots at me with a bb gun. I’m trying hard, but finding it hard to keep my eye on the shoreline.
Imagine how I felt when I got “the vibe” today. You know, the strong scent of a “Don’t Come Monday” in the air. The accounts person who never comes in on a friday is there. With school aged daughter in tow. Whispered conversations. Closed doors. Discussion of mysterious documents that need to be on letterhead. I have a nose for it, and I’ve never been wrong.
But I was wrong today. The DCM was real, but it wasn’t for me. They canned someone else. I can’t say I’m relieved.
