Reving up for Unio.n Busting!


An uncharacteristically chipper post ahead.  Beefcake took off from work on friday.  Dinner was ready when I got home from work (Beef stir-fry) and then we settled in for the night watching tv and eating apple pie.  Saturday was spent running a million errands and then some. 


He needed slippers yet somehow I ended up getting this really cute grey sequenced top.  Oh well.  After that we went to a bar for appetizers and drinks and then headed to Stephanie’s place for a late dinner and yummy desert.  


All my friends gave me tips on how to relax.  Stephanie suggested I wear red underware of some sort, just so that when I feel exposed while presenting I can remember I have a little secret underneath.  Mr. Diplomat made me smile when he called me a uni.on bu.ster.!!! 

Today was another chill day; we went to the mall for kicks and then he headed to his bud’s house.  I’m home alone sipping on the margarita that I meant to have last week, but oh well. 

On the job front – all is well; the last 2 1/2 weeks have been a crash course on all things ‘union’.  I sat through 5 presentation last week that my boss and the general manager gave to get me used to the presentation/enviornment.  I also met some head-honchos from our corporate office.  They told me that they just had to meet the young lady that my boss had fought so hard to get in – I was really touched.  One of them asked how I felt about presenting next week and I told him I was seeing slides in my sleep.  He advised that I stop studying and trust myself as I know the material; he put me at ease.

This week is show time – tomorrow I am presenting via video conferencing to a colleague in North Caro.lina.  After that 9 more (yes, NINE more) presentations this week.  Three each on, and friday.  This is the greatest career challenge I have ever had.  As nervous as I am, I am as ready as I’ll ever be.  At this point, I just want to get it all over with.

    Good luck on the presentations, although I’m sure you’ll do wonderfully. It’s awesome that your boss knows what you’re capable of and – even better – has told others. About time they let you show your stuff!
