I have been a state employee for a long time-longer than I care to mention here, anyway-there have been many a company picnic over the years and in general they have mostly sucked. But surprise, surprise, surprise. This years was nice. Actually even some fun. Any way-just thought that was interesting.

Have to give a shout out to my decorator...designs by patty...my new place (3 months at the end of the week) is looking great, and I couldn't have done it without her and her team. It is almost time for a fabulous cocktail party to show it off.
More about that when it happens.....

Just heard a (new?) song-Goodbye Daughters of the Revolution by the Black Crowes. Love it-love rock and roll.

amazing what a day without a boss can do for you. the work gets done (because you are not listening to them) and the day goes fast. my only co worker is out for the week (family business or not-it is their business) so that means this overworked employee is now double the overworked. but, again, it was ok because the boss was out.

just ran into my old boss-do miss her. she was awesome to work for (did i really just say that?). but yes, she was great-for awhile my coworker, myself and this awesome boss used to hang out together. then, like always-shit happens and no one was speaking to anyone-then the boss got a new job-the coworker left and i got to start all over again.

sad news

Just heard that a great guy who I have known for awhile, died over the weekend. He was a dedicated state employee and one heck of a nice guy. Never heard anyone say anything bad about him and he and his department interacted with every other dept from the President's office to the grounds folk. He will be sorely missed

So apparently I haven't posted in awhile and some of you are upset...may I remind you of the title of my blog..."overworked..."get it?
Working for the state (when it benefits the state) seem to have its perks...but this is an illusion. Everyone gets on the band wagon about how much time off we get (15 days vacation)...sounds great right? But 7 of them are for Christmas week and for 1 of those I have to use a vacation day -because we are closed). 2 days for Thanksgiving but it seems like everyone gets those. Memorial day, Labor day, Independence day-no brainers and Dr Martin Luther Kings BD. Still jealous? Somehow I don't think so.

There once was an Indian who had only one testicle,
whose given name was "Onestone."

He hated that name and asked everyone not to call him
Onestone. After years and years of torment, Onestone
cracked and said, "If anyone calls me Onestone again,
I will
kill them!" The word got around, and nobody called him
any more.

Then one day a young woman named Blue Bird forgot and
"Good morning, Onestone." He jumped up, grabbed her,
took her deep into the forest, where he made love to
her all
day and all night. He made love to her all the next
until Blue Bird died from exhaustion.

The word got around that Onestone meant what he
promised he
would do. Years went by, and no one dared call him
that is until a woman named Yellow Bird returned to
village after being away. Yellow Bird, who was Blue
cousin, was overjoyed when she saw Onestone. She
hugged him
and said, "Good to see you, Onestone."

Onestone grabbed her, took her deep into the forest,
then he
made love to her all day, made love to her all night,
love to her all the next day, made love to her all the
night, but Yellow Bird wouldn't die !

What is the moral of this story?

OH, Come on, take a guess!

Think about it.

The moral is... You can't kill two birds with one
