In fact, I've eaten so much greens in the last few weeks that I'm actually starting to craving for them. As in, "Hmm. That turkey club could use some more green. Can you add a extra couple of leaves to it?" when I hit the work cafe for lunch. For me, a meats-and-potatoes kind of guy, this is entirely too strange. Speaking of cravings, I am hoping that at some point the cravings for deep-fried stuff start to go away. I have had dreams of swimming through seas of ketchup and french-fries.
We're not overly concerned with sugars just yet as there isn't all that much in the house. Most of our sodas are diet. We have a couple of cases for friends who want the sweet stuff that come over for gaming nights. I've suggested we start looking for and avoiding buying things with HFCS in them which should be an adventure in shopping. Although the saturated fat label reading has been quite a bit more interesting so far.
Work has been slowly going crazy with two events happening this month and next.
This month is the ISO audit.
Does anyone here know how to get in on this con job? Rumors have been flying that my current company is spending a couple million dollars on the audit. People are getting paid to come in and ask if we have a documented process. That's it. Nothing more complicated than that.
Seriously. How do you get in on this? For that matter, how do you convince businesses that they need to spends millions of dollars on non-governmental, voluntary compliance? The whole idea just strikes me as a shakedown protection racket.
"We'll tell everybody you do business with that you're not compliant unless you give us money!"
It'll all be over at the end of this week.
Next month, the company is sending my team off to new digs. Which is cool. Everybody is starting to complain again about the parking situation. Which is to say that none of the buildings at work have adequate space for said activity at or near them. The result of which is that if you're not there by say, 8 or 8:30, you end up with a good half-mile hike.
Drive wise, the new digs are going to be easiest gotten to via 435. Through Johnson county. Across Metcalf, Antioch, and College Blvd. All places that I'd like to have a turret mounted grenade launcher to get through. So, yeah. I'm looking to an ex-Army friend to see if there is any way I start ordering parts to assemble by own M1-Abrams tank. Not that I'd run anyone over with it. It's more for being able to simply go around any and all backed up traffic in the area and not having to worry about, say, fences or road guards.
The WoW expansion drops tomorrow. I've been playing my level 60 warlock to get used to the new talents and spells I've already set up.
Also got Heroes of Might and Magic 5 Saturday as a belated Christmas gift. Ah, sweet turned based gaming addiction, how I have missed you.
