I try to be like that, but I usually have 3 or 4 people at work trying to ask me questions or do something all at the same time...It's gotten to be a habit to split conversations several ways...I don't like it, but I have to sometimes...



If I'm on the phone and another line rings, I won't answer the other line. Unless it's
something I know is important. Same thing for when people are in the office. If I'm
talking to someone in person, and the phone rings, I'll let the call go to voice mail. I
know I hate it when I talk to someone and they stop talking to take a phone call. To
me that's the same as saying "You're not important enough for my undivided attention,
hold on while I talk to someone that I feel is more important to you". I guess it all
comes from being taught as a child to not interrupt someone when they're speaking.

That's what bothers me about it. I can be talking to someone and the phone rings, if nobody else is there to answer I have to. (Hospital) The department get an incident report filed against it if we're not available or don't answer the phone or are a minute late delivering something.

That I can understand. I know in my last yearly employee evaluation my supervisor put
down that I need to multi-task more. I see multi-tasking as a way to make mistakes on
more than one thing at a time. I don't understand how someone can give 100% when
they divide their attention between 2 or more projects. I start each day with a plan
of what I'll get done that day. Doesn't mean the plan will get completed, but at least
I know what I want to get done that day.

Sometimes I think my bos sthinks too highly of me...
I do the usual dispensing, dosing, patient care (normal pharmacist stuff) and years ago I took on being the department computer guru. I'm currently working on 3 (or is it 4) differnet upgrades that are all due for "go-live" between now & the end of April. My co-workers are very understanding and cover for me because they don't want to get into the other stuff. I also got the privilege of coordinating our department remodel and last-week's move to our 4 month temporary home. I like to keep busy.....

That's all I do all day. Keep busy. I'm working in a two person office, but doing it by
myself. As hard as I try to not let it happen, things slip through the cracks. All I
know is that I better not ever get written up for it. If that ever happened, all hell
would break loose.

We are about to have dinner. A tad late, but better late than never.

Dang, now I want a PB&J sandwich.

I think we're lucky right now. For the first time in many years, we have been at what they call full staff for several months (although one of our technicians just turne din her 2-week notice)
We do seem to have several personality conflicts going. It seems like a group of 12 adults could get along better. Hey, I guess we're just human with all that human nature stuff

That's good too. I'm very picky about what type of rice I'll eat. Meaning how it's
prepared or what it's served with.

We had some really well prepared long grain rice at an Afghani place in Hamilton,Ontario last year. I hope we get back through there again someday, and hope they are still open..

I had to take my D.L. photo last week. I wonder if they got the embroidered logo in
the shot that is on my uniform shirt.

Swampy! I spent $200 on this outfit today plus a haircut and I'm not ready to get out of it quite yet.

I've learned a little trick...if you don't look directly at the camera lens, your eyes don't look all crazy...if you look beyond the camera, it comes out much better...

Camera is out in the car... There was also a silent auction tonight and somehow I scored this bottle of DKNY cologne for $20. Very excited, smelling it right now.

EDIT: Yea, it's good...

Thbbbth! Yes I'm buzzed, but I'm not in college anymore, and I can hold my liquor. Most likely better than anyone on here, second only to Zilla...

I can't help it, all these dudes in business suits kept buying me drinks at the mahogany bar...

Definitely better than me, I am sure. 2-3 drinks and I am ready for bed. I don't get "buzzed"...I get tired.

Let's just say I lost track around 6 drinks... which means I had 7 or 8. Now I'm sipping on some Landry cognac and seltzer and I'm more than coherent.

I don't know ace's limit... we should all get around a campfire in the woods with a full cooler and see what happens.

My husband, when younger, has peed in a closet, peed in a chest of drawers and walked next door in someone else's dorm room, lifted the covers and peed on someone in bed who didn't notice because he was passed out himself...

Luckily he got out of that weird peeing thing before we met.

I've never done the pee thing... I'm always in control of it. Either I get to the urinal or I keep it in.
