He so deserved getting fired last week on The Apprentice 2. Recalling a line from the movie "Top Gun" - his ego was writing checks his body can't cash.

Jen C. really need to learn to keep her mouth shut - didn't she learn it from Nick in Episode 2 of last season?

Elections in Hong Kong

Monday, September 13, 2004

They are holding elections for the legislature in Hong Kong. Fifty percent of all the eligible voters voted. And they only got to elect a part of it. The rest of the legislature is elected by special "electorate" (read: pro-Beijing) so that the Chinese government won't get shut out in the decision-making process. And people still voted - knowing the elected won't have real power. The voices that need to be heard is what this election is all about.

Last Week

Last week was a slow week. Very quiet. The problem with that was like babysitting my one-year old - when it gets too quiet you begin to wonder what the heck he is doing and start going around looking for him. Not that I called around all the offices looking for problems - that would make me paranoid. Like that Stacie chick on the Apprentice last week.

Voice Mail

Wednesday, September 01, 2004

Came back from lunch. Six voicemails. Two from Jackie - just a name change and a payment release - easy stuff, plus she's really catching on quickly. I don't mind hearing from her any more. One from an ex-data entry person who called to chat. One from a friend who called to set up a lunch date. So far so good. Then came the two Barbaras. One is the department user who wants to "confirm" info, which means I have to go dig up numbers. Ugh. The other is a data entry who needs help on "sub-cycles". I have absolutely no idea what that is.
