I laugh....

The Big Boss got a computer while I was on vacation.


He is SO EXCITED.


Let me explain.... we are a very high class funeral home in a very high class area. High class fancy shmanse is not really my cup o' tea -- but that is neither here nor there. It was very surprising on my first day, that in the office/work station there were only two computers. One of which was always turned off. This place is HUGE and there are 9 employees... and I couldn't figure out why there was only one working computer.



Then I was here for a day and I realized how Blonde Ambition was a crazy in the head-- and that she would go around turning everything off. Even computers. At one point (down the road, of course, I didn't want them to see my bossy personality right away!) -- I tried explaining how convenient it would be to have it turned on-- yanno-- so people could work on it. Out of the question. I may as well have been asking her to pay my house mortgage for a year.



Then I was here for a week-- and I realized that no one knew anything about computers... and anytime Big Boss would want me to do something for him on the computer he would say--- "Casey-- can you google (blahblahblah)?" Like.."Casey-- can you google this letter?".... Everything was googled. It was hilarious-- and I still find it quite amusing.



So... Big Boss has been begging Blonde Ambition for two years to get him a computer. At first I was like.. No. He doesn't need one. I need a job. I need to keep googling. You can't learn how to google. Then came the day that he sat at my computer and started click-clickclicklclick-clickityclickclicking everything --- everywhere (not even knowing how the mouse worked-- just that it clicked)..... *exhale* my job is going no where... my place here is secure. The little computer things gave Big Boss joy--- he was completely boggled when I ordered his pictures through wal*greens, and he could go down the road and pick them up in an hour...I could change the route on a map simply by dragging a dot to a road he would much rather take, we could look at pictures of people homes right from the street..... bananas.

I was very surprised to see the shiny new computer sitting in his extravagant, antique filled office when I came back from vacation. Blonde Ambition was tossing around the idea of getting one for him -- but I honestly didn't think it would happen.

Yesterday I showed him how to google antique stores in cities on the west coast. He was giddy and wide eyed like a school girl. Today I showed him how to download his pictures from his camera- and how to look at them.... and turn them the correct direction. He was laughing and smiling and grabbed my hand and said.... "CASEY!!! This is FASCINATING!!! You have opened up a whole new world to me!!! I feel like designing homes!" (I have no idea what that means)

He has been in his office for 3.5 hours.

Tomorrow I think I am going to show him how he can listen to his Frank Sinatra c.d's... he is going to go caaaarraaazzzzyyyyy!!!!!


Side note- since turning 36 last week, I have found out that I have plantar fasciitis and I have hypothyroidism. I have no comment about that.

Side note (part duex) - Thank you guys so much for reading my day-to-day.... and making comments-- you guys make me laugh, and I appreciate all the warm fuzzies.

Part Tres.... Rebecca is still at the hospital with her dad....

So you have flat feet and an over active thyroid? Oy vey. I wonder what you will get for your next birthday!

Amy said...

under active thyroid, right? Hypo vs. hyper

That's precious! They're a bit like that where I work and I love that they think I'm Teh Oracle. Have you tried a Strassburg sock for the plantar fasciitis? Genius invention.

You've made me laugh out loud. Ha! Sounds like a fun place to work, despite the whole death thing :)

This post was so funny. I love it. And the "Blond Ambition" moniker is just the kind of secret nickname I give people.

I forgot to answer your question. Yes, that picture is of Joey sitting on our deck on the 4th of July. So yes, that is our yard all the way back to the tree line. We live miles away from real civilization. Good news: good home and property prices, lots of room for gardening and the dogs. Bad news: nearest grocery store = 15 miles away. Nearest place to see a movie = 30 minutes away. Nearest airport, gay bar and concert venue = 1 hour away. :)

Wait. You work at a funeral home? That's so Six Feet Under. I love it.
