If my blog looks boring to you...

It's cause I have a lot of personal stuff going on, so most of my current entries are friend-locked. If you want to be added to the list of people able to read up on my drama, drop me a line.

In a completely unrelated sidenote, I HATE the phrase "Grow your business". I hear it constantly and it makes me want to punch things. "We're tapping into synergy to grow our company". GROW ISN'T MEANT TO BE USED LIKE THAT, GOD DAMNIT. You make a business grow, you do not grow a business. Are you starting it from scratch? NO. You can not "grow" something that already exists, because then you'd be implying it does not exist, and you are thereby starting something already in existence. 

So stop using it incorrectly America, or I swear I'm going to start busting some fuckin heads. Seriously. 

Also, take the acronyms out of your employee handbooks before the whole of the grunt workforce of society throws a mutiny.

I can't for the life of me remember why we friended each other. (friends of friends?) but...that phrase "The whatever is key." makes me want to feed my infant coke (the soda...) and lock the perpetrator in a room with him for 24 hours.

FYI, we need to have a meeting ASAP vis-a-vis your aversion to office speak. Maybe just a light Q&A with the IPR folks. See if we can't grow your vocab a bit.

Never has a sadder, more truthful thought been uttered since the opening night of Office Space.
