The rewards of a hard day's work...oh, and groundhog day!

Well, here we are...another week is underway, and it has been an extremely productive week! I had made a promise to have an entire building fully operational before our next meeting, and lo and behold, it appears as though I'm going to beat that deadline by at least 2 weeks. It's amazing how much you can get done when the areas you've already covered are stabilized and people are off your back. Perhaps by this time next month I'll have it all squared away and EVERYONE will be happy. No, wait...I think it was Abraham Lincoln that said it best: "You can please some of the people some of the time, but you can't please all of the people all of the time."

So tomorrow is groundhog day. Does it really matter? Who cares about what some rat on steroids sees? We don't get winter here, so he can see fairies flying through flaming cow manure for all I care. Punxsutawney, Pennsylvannia must not have much else as a claim to fame if they depend on some sedentary rodent to bankroll them for the next 364 days.

And, in closing...I must comment on a memo I received today. Obviously a frequenter of my website, this person actually felt it necessary to compare me to Jesus Christ. Now, before I let a couple of PSI out of my oh-so-inflated ego, let's take the literality (my own word) out of my previous missive. Judas is a biblical character that is known throughout time as a bit of a backstabbing, deceitful person. So, in my reference, I simply used Judas as a metaphor for a current-day scenario. In NO way do I make any comparisons, literally or otherwise, to Jesus Christ. I may have resembled his likeness in my youth, what with my long, flowing locks and my unshaven appearance...but that's about as close as I'd care to go. This attempt to infuriate or humiliate me has done neither. In fact, I will be issuing a campus-wide memo that anyone not addressing me as "J.C." will not only be ignored, but they will be stricken with some hideous, deadly affliction...like a hangnail or a cold. And if they really anger me, I'll throw in athlete's foot just for grins. Et tu, Judas?

How ya like them apples? Please feel free to continue your anonymous contributions. One thing you'll never find me doing is hiding behind anonymity. I'll always be there...working diligently...while your life continues on in squalor.

If you get a laugh from this, then I appreciate your intelligence and your sense of humor. If you get any other feeling, then you probably need to examine your own life and choose the battles that you need to be fighting--obviously this isn't one of them. Any questions?

Until next time...
