For those of you who have heard of Mike's Five Year Plan, or M5YP for short, you will be very happy to know that Step 1 is currently on-going. My coworker has found a new positiong that she would very much like to be in, and has the support of the current person there as well as their supervisor, so all that is left is that she be allowed to apply for the position.

This is where, in the past, certain problems have occured, since there are some people up in the higher management fields that feel she is more important where she is, and are therefore blocking the move. Which sucks for her, and really sucks for me.

But hopefully with two people endorsing her and me breathing down her neck to get her job, figuratively of course, things might be expidited a little.

For MikeandRose dot com, this is Mike, from his desk at work.

He gets a call on his cell phone. He hangs up, grinning from ear to ear & orders a round of drinks for everybody in the bar because, he announces, his wife has just produced a typical Canadian baby boy weighing 25 pounds. Nobody can believe that any new baby can weigh in at 25 pounds, but the Canadian just shrugs, "That's about average up North, folks. Like I said, my boy's a typical Canadian baby boy." Congratulations showered him from all around & many exclamations of "WOW!" were heard. One woman actually fainted due to sympathy pains. Two weeks later the Canadian returns to the bar. The bartender says "Say, you're the father of that typical Canadian baby that weighed 25 pounds at birth, aren't you? Everybody's been makin' bets about how big he'd be in two weeks. We were gonna call you... so how much does he weigh now?" The proud father answers, "Seventeen pounds." The bartender is puzzled & concerned. "What happened? He already weighed 25 pounds the day he was born." The Canadian father takes a slow swig from his Molson Canadian, wipes his lips on his shirt sleeve, leans into the bartender & proudly says, "Had him circumcised". |W|P|109276133925626367|W|P|The Best Canadian Joke Ever!|W|P|8/14/2004 09:02:00 AM|W|P|Mike|W|P|BBC SPORT | Olympics 2004 For anyone looking for up to date event tracking and even some live material fro mthe 2004 Olympics, this is a great resource.

I have to offer some apologies to any regular readers we might have had before I went and stopped posting. You see, I've been really busy lately, what with all that fun-having and general tom-foolery that Rose and I have been having. First off, the busy stuff. I do a lot of my posting from the office, and since June we've been running short 1 person every week. I honestly think that since June 1st, we have been 4 for about 2 days. No, a day and a half, actually. So I haven't had that much of a chance to post much, other than the occasional quick point to a funny news story or something that I find interesting. But now it's Saturday and I can have free reign again! Wa-! Let's see, I have applied for a job at WestJet since I can't stand my current one very much. I had actually applied a few months ago, but nothing much had come up, so I sent in a follow up note to the effect of "What's up?" Here is part of their response: "I notice that you have not applied for a specific position. In order to be considered, you will need to add a current job opportunity to your application" Well, unless I misread their website, I didn't have to do that at all. There was even this comment to the effect of "feel free to apply without a job selected" but in their defense it was stated that it might not deliver if I sent in an application without a specific job attached to it. So what did I do? I applied for their call centre job and haven't heard anything from them since. I really want in, but not if it's at a pay cut and to do what I'm doing now at a different company. I'm looking for a change. Oh well, I'll see what comes from it. Rose is having an absolutely fantastic time at work, although this week she's been hectically-busy so we haven't really done much, except rent movies. Bird Dog Video is just a few blocks away and they have a great deal: 3 movies for 7 days for 7$. So yeah, we've been taking advantage of that hard-core. This week we rented Lolita, Eating Raoul (don't ask!) and Out of Time. That last one stars Denzel and isn't that bad. It definitely kept me interested in the film, so that's good. Haven't seen the other two yet, but get ready for a review as soon as I do. I'm thinking about getting a DVD burner for Prometheus. There is an opportunity for me to get a full copy of Windows XP Pro for under 100$ which is just un-heard of, and since Prometheus is due for a reformat and re-install, then I was thinking of going Pro. Still haven't decided on the DVD (for backing up my 21.7 Gb of music and 81.26 Gb of video files. I heard recently on Gizmodo that the PS3 will be using the Blu-Ray DVD standard which will increase storage up to 25Gb on single layer and 50Gb on dual layer. Needless to say, it will mean good times for Mike...if I can find a Blu-Ray burner for under a grand. I have also started a webcam page, so if you would like to indulge your more voyeur-tastic side, then come on in! There's also a link on the sidebar. That's about it for now. Check out Foley's World if you want more. Currently listening to: Slynus - Slynus II (Seb Fontaine - Prototype Vol 4, Disk 1)
