For those of you not yet sick of hearing about my job...  Reply with quote  

...I am currently at a "Team Building Retreat" for myself and 130 of my closest co-workers. We are at the Westin Hotel at Bear Mountain, BC - just outside Victoria. My SUITE at the hotel is CONSIDERABLY larger than the condo I live in. It has 1 & 1/2 baths, a full kitchen, including dishwasher (which I don't have at home), a KING sized bed, large screen hi-def tv hidden behind a painting, and I am about to join my co-workers for a buffet dinner prepared in a 5-star kitchen.

This is not something I could ever hope to afford on my own, at least not for a few years yet, but it's all on my employer's tab. (The BC Gov't.) The only thing I have to pay for is booze - and the up side of THAT is that I am a very cheap drunk, I can go all night on three or four drinks.

LIFE COULD NOT GET BETTER!!!!

OK, gloat finished.
As you were.

Derr, it's BC. Of course that amount of boredom has already set it. Novelty's worn off, etc....


Braggarts anyway, never content. Very Happy
