    I don't like the fact I can't get more of my job (tutoring). Would so like more hours.

    My job is quite enjoyable - except for when something like what just happened to me occurs.

    I have been waiting for nearly two weeks for someone to provide me with the final piece of information that I need to finish an audit. I just called her (for the third time) to ask when it will be ready and I rang into a voicemail message saying that she no longer works here. Now I have to start all over again with someone else in her department. :nolike:

    JSBB-

    I'd be interested to hear your views on the Monty Python chartered accountancy sketch if you've seen it... :D

    :lol: I never really thought about that - maybe I ought to get myself ready for my eventual career by going out and buying a lion tamers hat. Oh wait a minute, I do know the difference between a lion and an anteater so I guess I will just have to scratch that idea. :lol:

    Really though, I am still an auditor and the area of the bank that I work for is the investment banking side of things so I am dealing more with stocks, bonds, and derivatives than I am with the traditional deposits/loans/mortgages side of banking.

    Love, life, unioverse and everything creates a mean impression of a vaccum.

    Well I have resolved to visit my godchild, Rebecca. I don't visit her much, I'm not good godfather.
    She looking like her father more and more. How do you say visit in french? Anyway I'm right now listening to Leonard Cohen's Take This Waltz. I like that song, don't you? "Now in Vienna there is ten pretty women, there's a shoulder where death comes to cry".

    Love never sucks. Its the greatest emotion a person can feel. Thats why it hurts so much when you lose something or someone you love.

    @Zurga: Your never a failure at something unless you just quit or give up. :thumb:

    The more you care about something, the more it hurts/pisses you off when it doesn't work out...

    It's a great pain to lose someone you love. The whole world comes to an end. Everything else becomes irrelevant. But yes, love is precious and the greatest thing one can have in life. It's the greatest gift from God and we should be thankful for it. As for failure, I am a failure. God bless my love. I could die for her. With her, the better half of me is gone. I hope she finds a better guy than I am.

    Oh, no. Chev's starting to brood. Just immerse yourself in work.

    I love my job, right before and right after it. :grin:

    Strangely I would have to say yes to both.

    It is very dumb and there are a lot of jokes that don't work - but scattered throughout the film there are some really funny moments.

    The old school board instructional film that they watch is a classic. :lol:
