Corporate F'ing Around

Well blog world I'm getting away from the office for a few days. My boss and I are headed to the HR Southwest conference for the next three days. What's that mean? It means that besides being away from the computer for extended periods, I will be signing up for any and every drawing that I see in the hopes of actually winning something from one of the bazillion vendors that will be set up there. It also means that I will be sitting in many "interesting" lectures and classes. It definitely means that I will be getting a free lunch for the next three days, and ultimately that I will be taking a company paid three day vacation.

Hopefully I'll get enough continuing education credits to keep up my certification while I'm counting how many hot girls actually work in the HR field. For those of you who don't know, it's not many.

My boss has pretty much the same thing in mind that I do. We'll go late, leave early, and work on getting plenty of rest. I do have to admit that I'm excited about Friday's keynote speaker.

I don't really know what she has to do with HR, but I'm hoping for an autograph!

So this is how your boss gets you alone?

I bet you two are sharing a hotel room aren't you...

Churlita said...

Julie Andrews must really be hard up for cash...Or maybe she's just trying to find a way to finally meet you.

NoRegrets said...

Walk up to her with a spoonful of sugar and offer it in exchange for an autograph.

Dagromm said...

Gyuss - It's just the latest way, but we unfortunately don't have a hotel room.

Churlita - It's called killing two birds with one stone.

Nore - I'm going to walk up in my Bad Medicine t-shirt and tell her that I don't need any help to go down.

NoRegrets said...

Well done!

Susan said...

"help to go down."

all I saw in above comments..

Dagromm said...

Nore - I believe that Mary Poppins would want me to live for the moment.

Susan - I try.

All I can say is that somewhere in your youth, or childhood, you must have done something good.

NoRegrets said...

How do you solve a problem like gonorrhea? How do you catch a moonbeam in your hands?

Dagromm said...

Plug - That's never been in question.

Nore - I think you misheard the song.

heather said...

dags, nor is talking about the original, uncut version.

Tera said...

Speakers don't excite me however, free stuff does.

Tera said...

Oh, and I WAS going to say that Gyuss' comment made me chuckle, but you've made it quite clear that it is strictly forboden on your blog.

Dagromm said...

Tera - Speakers don't excite me either, but Mary friggin' Poppins does.

Tera - I appreciate your restraint and I appreciate that Gyuss only made one comment.

You guys have totally ruined some of my favorite childhood memories. Kind of like how watching A Clockwork Orange ruined Singin' in the Rain. How does it feel to be in the same class as Malcolm McDowell?

heather said...

so dags, did you offer julie a spoonfull of sugar or was that your boss' offer to you? inquiring minds want to know.



acctualy, i'm just going through q and fringes withdrawl and figured i'd try channeling q. i'm not bright enough to try channeling fringes. i'd just fuck it all up in the translation. lol

Tera said...

All I saw in that post was Corporate F'ing. I like that.

Tera said...

Damn it Dagromm! I thought I was slacking!!!!!!!!!! This is the last post I commented on for you, I noticed my beauty in the comments right after I pressed send!

You are worse than I am!
