Well, I just got back from work and am in sort of a mixed mood. My yearly evaluation finally came up and I passed...but only barely and only because the manager went to bat for me. Selling is not my thing but I've grown accustomed to the job I'm in that I've stayed with it. However, I haven't improved at all because the truth is I hate it. If a person doesn't want a product, I won't force it on him. However, now that she's done this, I'm in a dilemna...I can't just leave because she put her own reputation on the line and I hate to stay because we're really slow now and I have to make a huge turnaround to make up for the previous losses. She's also the type who goes out on a limb for people and then holds it over their heads when things don't go right so it's really not that great that she did. On the other hand, I will get the Christmas bonus (Lord willing! If nothing else goes wrong) and keep my small raise such as it is. However, now I have a headache because I knew I had done bad but was still hoping I was wrong and am looking forward to a long couple months of hard selling which I detest. Oh, I should have left a long time ago...before this evaluation was done so I wouldn't have to worry about pressuring her and about staying. *kicks self for being lazy and not moving sooner* ( Brothers and Sisters *squeeees*, Heroes *double squeee*, and CSI: Miami... )
Aaaah the sweetness of love in the Air. Shakespeare is my favorite poem of all time so I was really excited when this poem came next on my list. If you've had British literature, then you're VERY familiar with this poem. I particularly love the line "but thy eternal summer shall not fade" because Martha most certainly shares many characteristics of a summer day...warm, inviting, and beautiful :) Maybe if Charles had quoted more poetry,they would have had a stronger marriage *wink*( Shall I Compare Thee To A Summer's Day...William Shakespeare )
And so dear friends, I leave you with this parting screencap of 24 Season Five in hopes Season Six will hurry its butt up and get here *grin*
I love you, Martha...and I didn't realize how much until now...as I stand on the verge of losing you...
