  • Happy Holidays!

    Hope y'all have a great holiday, which ever one you do or do not celebrate. We're ready here in SE NC and hope you folks are too. Do our Aussies celebrate 6 months from now given that their seasons are topsy-turvey?

      company christmas party..............


      December 1...To All Employees
      I'm happy to inform you that the company Christmas Party will be held
      on December 23rd at Luigi's Open Pit Barbecue. There will be lots of
      spiked eggnog and a small band will play traditional carols...feel free
      to sing-along. And don't be surprised if our CEO shows up dressed as
      Santa Claus to light the Christmas tree.
      Exchanging gifts among employees can be done at this time. Please
      remember to keep gifts to the agreed $10 limit.
      Merry Christmas to you and yours,
      leolani abdul, Human Resources Director

      December 2...To All Employees
      In no way was yesterday's memo intended to exclude our Jewish
      employees. We recognize that Hanukkah is an important holiday and
      often coincides with Christmas (although not this year). However, from
      now on we're calling this party our Holiday Party. The same policy also
      applies to employees who are celebrating Kwanzaa at this time. There
      will be no tree or Christmas carols sung.
      Happy holidays to you and yours.
      leolani abdul, Human Resources Director

      December 3...To All Employees
      Regarding the anonymous note I received from a member of Alcoholics
      Anonymous requesting a non-drinking table, I'm happy to accommodate
      your request but please remember that if I put a sign on the table that
      reads "AA Only" you won't be anonymous any more.
      In addition, we'll no longer be having a gift exchange because union
      members feel that $10 is too much money.
      leolani abdul, Human Resources Director
      ------------------------------------------------------------------------
      December 7...To All Employees
      I have arranged for members of Overeaters Anonymous to sit farthest
      away from the dessert table and for pregnant members to sit closest to
      the restrooms. Gays are allowed to sit with each other. Lesbians do not
      have to sit with gays; each group will have its own table. And, yes,
      there will be a flower arrangement for the gay men's table.
      Happy now?

      December 9...To All Employees
      People! People! Nothing sinister was intended by wanting our CEO to
      play Santa Claus. Even if the anagram for "Santa" does happen to be
      "Satan." There is no evil connation to our own little "man in a red
      suit."
      leolani abdul, Human Resources Director
      ------------------------------------------------------------------------
      December 10...To All Employees
      Vegetarians! I've had it with you people. We're holding this party at
      Luigi's Open Pit Barbecue whether you like it or not. You can just sit
      at the table farthest from the "Grill of Death" as you call it, and
      you'll get salad bar only including hydroponics tomatoes. Tomatoes have
      feelings too, you know. They scream when you slice them. I can hear
      them now. I hope you have a rotten holiday. Drive drunk and die, you
      hear me?
      leolani abdul, a.k.a The Bitch from Hell
      ------------------------------------------------------------------------
      December 14...To All Employees
      I'm sure I speak for all of us in wishing Leolani abdul a speedy recovery
      from her stress-related illness. I'll continue to forward your cards to
      her at the sanitarium. In the meantime management has decided to cancel
      the Holiday Party and give everyone the afternoon of the 23rd off with
      full pay.
      Terri Bishop, Acting Human Resources Director

          Ran across this from a few years back... Had to share once again!
          Borrowed From a Fellow BangShifter!
          'TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS - GEARHEAD VERSION
          'Twas the night before Christmas, my battery was dead,
          My head gasket was blown, my tires had no tread.
          The car parts were placed on the workbench with care,
          In hopes the mechanic soon would be there.
          The transmission was leaking, the oil-dry I spread,
          While visions of dollar-signs danced through my head.
          While surveying the problems I started to weep,
          Cause I knew in my heart it wouldn't be cheap.
          When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter
          I opened the garage door to see what was the matter.
          When what to my wondering eyes should appear
          But the Snap-On man in a truck from Goodyear.
          With a little old driver, so lively and quick,
          I knew in a moment it must be Saint Nick!
          With his band of mechanics, out of the truck they came,
          And he whistled and shouted and called them by name.
          Now Bruce! Now George! Now Earl and Fred!
          On Chris! On Dave! On Charles and Ed!
          Let's get to work quickly on this poor old wreck,
          Although getting it running may be too much to expect!
          The screwdrivers, they glistened! The wrenches, they flew!
          I was anticipating a car that looked almost new!
          They put on new tires, they brought out some paint.
          At the sight of all this, I thought I would faint!
          When suddenly Santa said, "There's no hope for this thing!"
          "Let's get a car in here that has some real bling!"
          He opened the trailer, he backed the car out,
          And all the mechanics, they started to shout!
          I couldn't believe it, I haven't digested it yet!
          It was better than anything I ever thought I would get!
          Down the driveway came the most beautiful sight,
          My dream classic car, all shiny and bright!!
          He laughed when he saw me, in spite of himself,
          Cause he was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf.
          He said, "She looks really good and she runs really great,
          Cause under the hood is a 350 V8!"
          I didn't know how to thank him, the mechanics they cheered!
          I wouldn't miss all the road trips like I feared!
          I hugged him and kissed him, my heart all a-quiver,
          He said, "I must go, I have parts to deliver!"
          He sprang to his truck, to his team gave a whistle,
          And away they all flew like the down of a thistle.
          But I heard him exclaim, 'ere he drove out of sight,
          "Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!"

                  And also some carry it with no symptoms. But you aren't wrong that some do infect others because they have mild regular flu like symptoms. But back to the point , Merry Christmas.

                        Most likely. Of course, 'normal' is a relative term.
