Mojo missing

Hello again Gentle Readers,

Just another note to say I'm still here. But my writing mojo has taken a short vacation, so y'all are just going to have to wait for my Poor George sequel, as well as the rest of the Bubs interview.

Min's dad is still hanging on, though it looks like we're getting closer to a resolution. I'm glad he has all his family around him.

My job as a Strategic Sales Executive is sucking the very life force out of me. The other day I made yet another brilliant career move by telling our vice president, in front of all my colleagues, "I can't do anything about these ridiculous numbers so I simply decided I wouldn't worry about them." Those kinds of comments are usually reserved for the independently wealthy who wouldn't care if they were fired. The room went silent for a few moments, and then the VP said "well it's good that you choose something to focus on and then do it." Of course, he may not be aware that what I focus on most is chronicling the annoying things my sales reps do and say to me.

After my Chicago meetings I stopped in on my parents for approximately 20 hours, and realized I had not seen them since our disastrous vacation last summer. My, how time flies when you're dysfunctional.

We all await your full and brilliant return. Imagine your career getting in the way of blogging. Hmph. I'll be seeing my parents before long so I hope to be posting to wash away the dirty feeling when I get back.

Jeez, your family vacation sounds uncomfortably familiar. I come from a big Irish catholic family myself, 5 brothers and sisters and a whole lotta booze flowing from the minute you get to the destination. Booze + Irish Catholic + 13 Grandchildren all within a 7 year age span = Circus.

Next time I swear I'm gonna record a video and post it, its that good...

You forgot to mention that you had really fabulous Indian food in Chicago with the prettiest blogger you know. ;-)

Hey, you were in Chicago and you didn't meet me for a blogfriend cup 'o' coffee? I could have chased those blues away with the lightest toss of my knit cap into the Minneapolis, I mean Chicago sky. Hugga hugga.

I think one of the firs things I read by you was your post about your family trip to the Dells. I was hooked.

Glad you plan on surfacing again, soon, and entertaining us.
