I may have mentioned that my manager is being promoted to be a project manager. (Promoted? Project manager?)

So something like this went around our group last week:

A tourist walked into a pet shop and was looking at the animals on display. While he was there, another customer walked in and said to the shopkeeper, "I'll have a C monkey please." The shopkeeper nodded, went over to a cage at the side of the shop and took out a monkey. He fitted a collar and a leash, handed it to the customer, saying, "That'll be $5,000."

The customer paid and walked out with his monkey. Startled, the tourist went over to the shopkeeper and said,"That was a very expensive monkey. Most of them are only a few hundred bucks. Why did it cost so much? "The shopkeeper answered, "Ah, that monkey can program in C - very fast, tight code,no bugs, well worth the money. All you have to do is feed it bananas. "

The tourist looked at a monkey in another cage. "Hey,that one's even more expensive! $10,000! What does it do?"

"Oh, that one's a Desktop Support monkey; it can do all your desktop support, install new programs, fix your laser printers and even run your full help desk. All the really useful support stuff," said the shopkeeper. "Once again just give it bananas."

The tourist pointed to another monkey priced at $20,000.

"That one is a Network monkey; it can manage all your servers, maintain your entire Domain infrastructure, do backups of your data and will even design and install your entire network, all for a few bananas," exclaimed the shopkeeper.

The tourist looked around for a little longer and saw a Fourth monkey in a cage of its own. The price tag around its neck read $50,000.The tourist gasped to the shopkeeper, "That one costs more than all the others put together! What on earth does it do?"

The shopkeeper replied, "Well, I haven't actually seen it do anything, but it says it's a project manager".

We all brought Bananas to our next staff meeting for our outgoing manager!


I had to go out and buy an airshock for the motorcycle cause when Amy got on it was too low to the ground. I'm beginning to wonder after another $995.00 part if I should just go find a very light woman to ride with!


President Bush was quite successful at avoiding Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at the UN this week. All the right wing Radio commentators were estatic that Bush didn't have to shake his hand. What are we coming to, that avoiding a foriegn leader to aviod shaking his hand is considered a great achievement, instead of meeting with him and actually working a situation out like a statesman???? What a Pussy! No offense meant to women or baby cats. I'd hate to see how Bush would cower before a rowdy three year old on a temper tantrum!


One of my nieces in Ireland just went to the hospital with a Brain Hemorrhage. She is Melanies age, 26, and is doing better, but is still in great pain. She may be in the hospital for another few weeks. That's pretty scary as severe problems can continue afterwards. It's very similar in effects to a stroke.

I'm not fatalistic, I.E. everything happens for a reason....Sometimes shit just happens. For a young woman who is very health conscious to be struck down like that, just doesn't make sense. It's a very "Shit happens" type of thing. So please think some good thoughts for Joanne.

Curiouoso* is off for a nap. Have one too, It's good for you!
