Quietly Typing

I was given a bucket and told to empty an ocean.

"Ouimet" Just a 'fucking' blogger or a voice for the corp?

I can only say this, when it comes Ouimet, be careful where you place your trust.

Divide and conquer, think about it.

How long will this lockout last? I don't know for certain - but November can be cold.

Both Sides Now
By Joni Mitchell

Rows and floes of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons ev’rywhere
I’ve looked at clouds that way

But now they only block the sun
They rain and snow on ev’ryone
So many things I would have done
But clouds got in my way
I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down, and still somehow
It’s cloud illusions I recall
I really don’t know clouds at all

Moons and junes and ferris wheels
The dizzy dancing way you feel
As ev’ry fairy tale comes real
I’ve looked at love that way

But now it’s just another show
You leave ’em laughing when you go
And if you care, don’t let them know
Don’t give yourself away

I’ve looked at love from both sides now
From give and take, and still somehow
It’s love’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know love at all

Tears and fears and feeling proud
To say I love you right out loud
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds
I’ve looked at life that way

But now old friends are acting strange
They shake their heads, they say I’ve changed
Well something’s lost, but something’s gained
In living ev’ry day

I’ve looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It’s life’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know life at all
I’ve looked at life from both sides now
From up and down, and still somehow
It’s life’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know life at all

Announcement coming?

Well, I guess I'm not a blogging virgin anymore. After making my first blog entry, it felt like some of the weight was lifted off my shoulders.

Rumour has it that the corp will be making a major announcement next week. Details are sketchy, so I won't get into any speculation at this time. However, the anticipated announcement is rumoured to have very little, or nothing to do with negotiations

I'll do my best to add an entry on a daily basis.

Frustrated on the inside

It's only been 12 days, but it feels like 3 months.

Long days eventually lead to long nights, which ultimately result in very little sleep and frayed nerves.

How do I begin? Well, I guess I did.

I've tried everything to relieve the stress, including this new blog. I certainly hope it's the silver bullet, but I'm a realist.

My partner says I look like 'shit.' Of course, that is when I have the opportunity to see my partner. I guess I probably sound like shit too. I guess you could say I'm a 'Jack of All Trades' now. It may have taken you 4 or more years to learn you trade, but I had to learn it in days. I'm not proud of that, not at all.

I used to enjoy my morning cup of coffee. About the only thing I enjoy now is the pleasant thought of this lock out ending soon, real soon. But I'm a realist and besides, I've been told not to make any vacation plans.

It doesn't look good.

The water cooler used to be a buzz with juicy rumour and gossip, now it's just gloom and doom. Can I say that?

I'd like to get into more of the "rumours," and I will, but for now, I'll just post this and see what happens.
