Not Much time To Write

bosses decided that a project that had deadline of yesterday, involved all our clients, and was being (mis)handled by one department of 18 people who had 3 months to work on it, should be taken from their weary wittle whiney hands and dumped on my department of 5.   … With no extension of the deadline. 

I have a bad feeling that I just got handed a live grenade in a winner take all version of “Business Hot Potatoe” (The Dan Quayle edition).   I checked my job description and it doesn’t say “Scapegoat”.  Dusting off the resume in fears (hopes?) it will be needed soon.  I’d say there is no chance in hell that this project can get done, but that would insult really hopeless causes that actually have a better chance of working.  Mid-East peace… Obama turning into a Constitutionalist…  God creating a square circle that he can’t lift…

    Hope all is well. If I hadn’t done extra posts while stuck in motels I’d have a dearth of them right now.

    Hope to see you back soon.

    Thanks. Nothing physically wrong. Just mental baggage from some industry upheaval due to new .gov regulations that seem to morph on a weekly basis. The deadline is approaching so I will either get on the other side of it and be normal again (as loosely as that term can be applied to me) or have PLENTY of free time to blog as I look for a new career.

    I’m not entirely sure which I’m pulling for?

dantes firing range -A T-
Remove the spaces and convert the -AT- to... you know the drill. In VB Script that's: Value = replace (replace ("dantes firing range -A T-", " ",""), "-AT-", chr(64))
