Friday, May 13, 2005

In order that we might all raise the level of discourse and expand our language abilities, here is the daily post of “word for the day”. Rules: Everyone must leave a post using the “word of the day”; in a sentence. The sentence must, in some way, relate to the news of the day.


Dodgeball Day!

Subbie Slip has given her whip, handcuffs and legcuffs to xs today.

The rest of the stuff is locked up in my drawer. I’m just letting all the new students know that we behave as if we were ladies and gentlemen in here. Those two words “as if” can get you an A if you make the subbie laugh.

I meant major boob as in major boobs. Gazongas. Hooters. These facilitate, but are not compulsory for, the categorization of babeness. Also Major Bob's the wrong friggin' sex. :^) One might say, his booblessness belies babeness, if one was desperate for some asinine alliteration.

No chunking inside a moving ambulance, eh?

What if the the back door were open?

(Robt sees scene from James Bond flick of bed rolling backwards down the Brazilian hills ...

But, in Mew York, it'd be Ti on top, rolling freely down on the Gurney turnpike past exit 115....)

#@^@# I absolutely love surprises, especially when they cause an account I'm charge of to over budget(and thus taking it out of a different account we don't want to use for this), and when I don't have the bill in front of me.

Some folks are getting an earful soon.....(Sorry. had to vent)

To Beat a Dead Horse . . .



Dakota Tribal wisdom says that when you discover you are riding a dead horse, the best strategy is to dismount.

A recently declassified Pentagon document indicates that people in the Pentagon try other strategies.

Specifically there are 22 separate and distinct strategies that people in the Pentagon try when they discover they are riding a dead horse:



1. Buy a stronger whip.

2. Change riders.

3. Say things like, "This is the way we've always ridden this horse."

4. Arrange to visit other sites to see how they ride their dead horses.

5. Increase the standards to ride dead horses.

6. Appoint a Tiger Team to revive the dead horse.

7. Create a training session to increase riding ability.

8. Pass legislation that declares, " The horse is not dead."

9. Harness several Dead Horses together for increased speed.

10. Declare with a policy directive and operating instruction that no dead horse is too dead to beat.

11. Do a cost analysis to determine if contractors can ride the dead horse cheaper.

12. Buy a commercial off-the-shelf dead horse.

13. Declare that the horse is better, faster, and cheaper dead.

14. Form an IPT to find uses for dead horses.

15. Revisit the key performance parameters (KPPs) for dead horses.

16. Say the horse was procured making CAIV-based decisions.

17. BRAC the horse farm on which the dead horse was born.

18. Promote the dead horse to a supervisory position.

19. Name the dead horse "Paradigm Shift" and keep riding it.

20. Ride the dead horse "smarter," not harder.

21. Call the dead horse "joint" and let others ride it.

22. Ride the dead horse "outside the box."
