I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. It is beautiful outside here today.

I can't remember what I have posted about my job situation. Two weeks ago, I was told that after June 30, I would report to the guy that is over commercial lending and assist him. In 90 days, my position will be re-evaluated. If there is a position available, I will be moved into that position. If not, I will get my severance. The guy that I report to is very nice, but I'm not quite sure what was meant by assisting him. He has an assistant, who is for lack of better words to describe her, DEAD COMMON. She is about a size 4, has a surgically enhanced chest, over processed bleach blond hair with at least 2 inches of dark roots, purchases her clothes at Whores R Us, and has no sense of decorum. The boss thinks she's the greatest thing since sliced bread. Thursday, she did not show up for work, she didn't even call in. Someone emailed the boss. He had not heard from her. So one of the guys called her. She said that she was sick. HELLO! She couldn't pick up the phone and call? She should know better than that. She's not 18, she's in her forties. She doesn't work in an area by herself. She sits at a desk in the middle of two other assistants. I decided right then and there that I'm going to show her up. I have never been anyone to stab someone in the back, but I'm not going to sit back, work hard to just get let go while she gets to keep her job and be the "Queen Bee". I think I have an entire 10 story building on my side. I work very hard. I am conscious of my appearance and I handle myself with decorum. Everyone feels the same as I do. Believe it or not, I am the least vocal about it. I don't want to come across as a catty bitch. BTW, yesterday, I found out that my new boss is going to move into our former chairman's office. I'm moving to the fancy desk right outside his office. I beat the dead common assistant to it. Forgive me for being so tacky, but I'm looking out for ME. I'm going to do it with decorum.

I'm still looking for a new job. My former boss told me to take care of "ME". Thursday, I sent my resume to two more places. There were no openings, but I have contacts that are keeping their ears open. Yesterday, when I got home, I had a message and an email from the employment placement company where I interviewed a few weeks ago. They have a position that they think I may be interested in. I'll give them a call on Monday.

One of you wanted to see my purchases from my shopping trip on Tuesday. Here they are:

The pants in the top photo are stone and olive. The capris in the bottom photo are blue/white seersucker and green with pink flamingos. I've already wore the green capris and the dress. The dress is not much, but it is comfortable.

After I do some minimal housecleaning, I'm going to call BFF MAB. We are going to do something today. I'm not sure what we are going to do yet.

I hope everyone enjoys the remainder of their weekend.

Ha, I love it. Dead common. She sounds worse than Queenie. Don't you just wonder where these people come from sometimes?

Like your use of the phase 'dead common'. It is really sad, but so true that some men seem to like to have women around the office who dress slutly. what are they thinking? it is place of business, not a bar. good for you looking after yourself and going after what you want. all the best with your job situation. i hope everything works out for you.

Wow, did you find some great goodies Miss Pink Cupcakes, what cute things!

Can we just say that "dead Common" had us LOL, quoting you to the Spousal Unit? What a fab phrase.

Smiles at you,
