The Perfect Worker

1 Bob Smith, my assistant programmer, can always be found
2 hard at work in his cubicle. Bob works independently, without
3 wasting company time talking to colleagues. Bob never
4 thinks twice about assisting fellow employees, and he always
5 finishes given assignments on time. Often he takes extended
6 measures to complete his work, sometimes skipping coffee
7 breaks. Bob is a dedicated individual who has absolutely no
8 vanity in spite of his high accomplishments and profound
9 knowledge in his field. I firmly believe that Bob can be
10 classified as a high-caliber employee, the type which cannot be
11 dispensed with. Consequently, I duly recommend that Bob be
12 promoted to executive management, and a proposal will be
13 executed as soon as possible.


That idiot was standing over my shoulder while I wrote the report
sent to you earlier today. Kindly re-read only the odd numbered

For cryin' out loud.....

I just want everybody to know: I did NOT vote for this dude.....

This is S.A.D.-seriously....  

Posted by The Glo-ness

Warning: Rant to follow, but I just HAD to get this off my chest.... >_<

Okay, so I'm checking my email a few days ago and I get an email telling me that February 14 is S.A.D. day. Yes, that stands for Single Awareness Day. The first thing I think is "No way...you have GOT to be kidding me..." Are we this pathetic??!! I mean, come on! I'm single, yeah I'd LOVE to have a man in my life, but that doesn't mean I'm going to try and hi-jack the couples-day! Are we this immature as a society that the single people can't stand to experience a day devoted to romance without trying to turn the focus on themselves?! This would be like all the childless women declaring Mother's Day the new Infertility Awareness day!! I mean, come on...I didn't even remember it was Valentine's day until about half way through Mass (and Mass is at 10am out here...) Geez....

Gasp, gasp...okay, I'm done now...on another note, my internet is going to be up and working this Thursday, so expect to see more of me around this blog... mwahhaha

A poem by Tom.  

Posted by Thom in

Hey Howdy, here's a poem I wrote on my way back from a trip to Tomball(North Houston). Sorry for some reason my line spacing is weird. Enjoy.

Here I sit in silence killing,

the Whiteness of this pageI'm stealing.

all for rhymes that equal what?

Here I sit with no direction

giving random word selection,

saying things that equal what?

I could use this time of writting

to write on ships or seagull sightings,

but alas in Tomball I can not.

Maybe I could write of that forest wall

built of pine trees straight and tall,

but instead I sit here writing squat.

St. Valentine's Day Contest!  

Posted by Jude Emblem

Greetings TradCats! In light of the upcoming feast of St. Valentine (and the lack of recent articles) we are going to host our second article contest and first of this year. The theme for this contest is, you guessed it, St. Valentines Day! There is so much to talk about with this one subject that it should be rather easy to think of something to share. i.e. Why doesn't anyone say Happy St. Valentine's Day like they do for St. Patrick? What is the modern view of love and why is it wrong? Who is St. Valentine? What is the origin of giving/receiving valentine cards? etc. The deadline for the contest will be St. Valentines Day, February 14th, 2010. All articles will be reviewed by a panel of judges in funny white wigs. The winner of the contest shall receive bragging rights and a spiritual bouquet of 15 decades of the rosary (like I said before, I'm a poor college student). God bless you all and may St. Valentine guide your key strokes!

A family in need.

Some friends of ours, the Romo family, have had some complications regarding their Visas. They are here legally, they are a very loving, very generous family; they let us stay with them for three weeks after hurricane Ike, when we had no power. They fed us, helped us during our stay with them. Now through some complications with their children's visas they may have to leave the U.S. They are having their hearing tomorrow morning at 7:00 am; they can use all the prayers they can get, so I ask y'all to please remember them in your prayers.


Ready for Some Fun?
