"There's too much tendency to attribute to God the evils that man does of his own free will." Agatha Christie

Recently I was called the most "Evil Person In The World"  by someone who should not be casting stones in a glass house. It's hard work living up to that title, let me tell you. It's not just all fun and games. 

There is alot that goes into the "Evil Person In The World" Now one would think that I sit in my lair all day thinking up evil plots with a white cat on my lap. Well there is some truth to this. I do have a "lair" since I work in a dungeon (basement in the real world), I do hatch some evil plots (I am a complaince auditor), I do not have a cat at work, white or otherwise but I do have an assistant that could qualify for a minion.

So where am I? I'm about to go to court in April where I will most likely become the most "Evil Person In The World" because I'm forcing my spawn's father to pay child support when he doesn't appear to want to, or more accurately only wants to pay what he wants to pay when he wants to pay it. For filing I got the most "Evil Person In The World" title. Eh, somebody's gotta fill this slot right.

 To further extend my most evil person in the world status, I'm talking to this guy. We'll call him............M. So M and I have been chatting it up for a little while now. Sounds pretty cool right, ah were back to my most "Evil Person In The World" because there are things that don't add up. Now, I'm an auditor by trade and I have a BA in bugs me when things don't add up, so I  let it go for as long as I can then my estrogen demands I issue the summons "We need to talk" Ah, the death words.....designed by women to send any man running, except the one I'm talking to. Nothing about this guy is normal. Reactions, the way he handles things, the situations he's in, nothing is normal, he keeps me guessing. So we talk....It was a good talk that answered a lot and left more questions. I'm sure where he is concerned there is someone that will consider me the most "Evil Person In The World" because that's how these things happen, I have rotten luck with guys. But as Sally says in Carabert, Maybe this time, I'll get lucky... We'll see, M is a roller coaster ride from hell that I just don't want to get off of yet. At least I know what I'm in for, kinda. 

"We'll either expand into greatness or implode into oblivion." JB 2010

The above quote was made last week at a retirement luncheon for one of the supervisors by one of the VP's at my place of employment. The lady that made the statement is amazing and handles more in a day then I can even think about,  yet does it all with caring and compassion. She's one of the people I aspire to be like when I grow up.

I'm really lucky at my place of employment. That I can say that after the shittastic week last week I've had is a testament to just how much I really do like my job and the people I work with. I am surrounded by people who are encouraging and inspiring and who make me want to strive to reach my goals and surpass them. JB the originator of the quote is in the clinical realm. If ever there was a more difficult realm to dwell in. Especially now, with the (insert tired phrase here) economy the way it's been.

So onward we go, just trying to serve the people in need and do the best we can for our community and hope that we survive until the economy straightens it self back out, because eventually it always does.
