Can't hold back anymore

Voter Fraud is a reality and obviously part of the SOP of the political machines in our State. Nothing new you say? Of course. We have all heard the jokes and one liners of dead people voting ad nauseum. But the state has had up to 35 counties, a third, just decide to not send absentee ballots overseas on time so this states service members can take part in this election. Do they care? Is the media covering this disenfranchisement of our citizens actually taking part as productive citizens? Here is a story about ballots not going out in time but people locked up in Cook County Jail getting theirs hand delivered. Today, a Federal Judge (small j) blocked an effort trying to get an extension on the return dates for these ballots. Nice, I hope politics were not involved in this decision. LOL. DOJ looking into this? Anybody fired or held accountable??? Nothing to see here....move along

Business Phone Call of the Month

Me, calling from my desk in an office tower in the Chicago Suburbs: "If I could get a copy of your [document] that would really help."

Office manager of company in another state: "Sure, we are having tornado warnings here, so I'll send that right away."

Me: "Shouldn't you get to shelter?"

Office manager: "I just want to send it before the computers go down."

Me: "...."

There's a Poll at Illini6!

No, not like that.  There's a poll, you know one you can vote on.

Please, Please go vote.

I'm trying to decide what kind of novel to write for NaNoWriMo 2010.

You know, he does have a silly hat.
Now, this is better.

Your Business-Speak Example of the Day V

"Furthermore, the continuation of delayering of the current organization and the clarification of roles and responsibilities will allow us to focus our technical skills at the right areas and will substantially increase our market and customer orientation."

Translation: Deadwood and useless management will be fired, so the people doing real work and customer service can get back to doing so.

It's That Time of Year Again - Cthulhu Month

The Aztecs used to say, Huitzepotil tloloc tenochtitlan!

It's October and that means it's Cthulhu Month over at Illini6. You know, I went back and looked at past years and at least for the last two years I've claimed that it was the third year of doing a blasted image of the Great Old One each day in the month of October. That means that I've been mistaken or, or, time is not right!

I don't know how long I've been doing this, but this year is special, I'm going to try to put in as many original images, I've gotten my wits about me again (recovered from the Equinox) and I'll be sharing my Katrina experiences and I have another blog, Papa Stories where I'm going to try to record some of the stories my father used to tell.

First up on Papa Stories will be The Night Of the Purple Fog.
Ooooooo! Scary stuff kids!
