Time for a Rant

OK, buckle up! I haven't done it in a while and I try not to, as you all know I like to be the "glass is half full" type of a guy. However, I just finished one of "those" weeks, I spent 6 straight days being "trained"(which is debatable) for 12 hours a day in a conference room, 200+ PowerPoint slides, ya, don't do the math, I did it for you, that's over 1,200 slides total. Let's just say it was a loooooong and challenging week for one who borders on having ADD! and leave it at that because I never know who might read this and I would kinda like to stay employed. Now that I think about it, I best just leave it be. Oh, and I love Florida, they have the best conference rooms.....

However, there was a bright spot(I mean besides coming home). Dan Clark was hired to speak to us in the final session, very impressive! (of course anyone with a joke or two and no ppt slides would have been impressive at that point) he as great, very thought provoking, I learned that I don't need to CHANGE, I just need to be more of who I already am! (I am sure many of you can't wait for that to happen) and I am going to be. Really I am. Dan's most poignant idea that really resonated with me was; Contrary to what we are constantly taught, we need to stop trying to think outside the box, because, just maybe .. . . ready? here it comes........ "what if the answers are inside the box" ya think about it. I know I am diving deep here for some of you but that's OK, hang with me.

Anyway that's enough of my rant, if I go on, I will saying something I probaly shouldn't and you will get to the end of this pontification and wonder why, you wasted your time reading this bunk. Well OK, you can do that now!

P.S. just a little side rant, if you are ever in the waiting room of the doctors office and have the urge to pick up your cell phone and call your husband to tell him about the guy that backed into you in the parking lot, you may want to step outside like ALL the other patients were doing. Because, I and everyone else in that room now know the name(for privacy reason I won't give it here, but I do know it) of the man that backed into you, his address,(he lives in Provo, kinda up by my house), his insurance info(he's insured with Progressive, and again I won't post his account # as it was repeated 3 times, very slowly so I could right it down) and that he drives a 2000 Toyota Camry. I sure hope their neighbor Pete gets to look at it and let them know what it will take to get it fixed. Thank goodness the nurse called them back to a room and we could all still hear her as the went down the hall. Ya, I was a littler irritated because it was interupting my reading of my new Dan Clark book!!!!

shoooo, I feel better! don't you?

Carry on....

Another joyous day of travel. So I am minding my own business, waiting for my flight. I had to snap a picture of this; this guy and his wife had two infants, a stroller, bag in stroller, the largest neck pillow invented, and a Cello! The look on the Delta gate agent's face was priceless! Funny thing, these type of people always have seats next to me. When the gate agent inquired, the man informed him that he had purchased a ticket for the Cello, oh ya nice, don't buy a ticket for either of your children but, do get on for your instrument. But then again, I am assuming that there is actually a Cello in that case hmmmm.

bloggers cramp

Oh Crap! I just realized something that many of you have, I am sure, already noticed. I have BLOGGERS CRAMP!! As you can tell by my posts for the last month(ok, so pretty much any post I have done), they are really lacking in thought and substance. But hey, so am I !

I had bloggers cramp once before and even though it may not look like it, I got over it. Now hold on, don't get upset or worry for me. Just give me some time and a few business trips, I will be good to go. (well as good as I can be, don't get too excited, it's not like I am suddenly going to start writing anything worthwhile)

Just remember; You get what you pay for!! I know I know, I owe you.. . . .

Well I guess if you have to have cramps, bloggers cramp is better than some of the other cramps out there. See, I am kind of a "cup half full" guy. Just not too sure what it's half full of??

Forgive me for not having a visually stunning graphic or picture in this post.(I know you were expecting one) It's really difficult to find an appropriate graphically representation of cramps.

So in closing, I have a question for YOU, yes, YOU the anonymous reader of this drivel;
What is your favorite topic of discussion on this high caliber, thought provoking, deep thinking, informative, & down right good blog? leave a commentt(see that little comment button down there, click on it).

Mixed messages

I don't get it, where's the mixed message? I think it's clear..... McDonalds can no longer afford the top billboards

That's a pretty small billboard, they should super size it.
