Meet the new boss...

Same as the old boss.

No, that's not true. Actually, much sweeter. Had a departmental reorganization, two of my bosses are no longer my problems (one of them was The Mistress, the other was my favorite :( )

One of my two new bosses came to my cube for some help with a powerpoint presentation, and looked around.

"You really like hyenas, don't you?"

"Yeah, they're my favorite critters."

"You know..." (pause) "They generally aren't portrayed as the nicest animals, are they?"

......"We do not persecute based on race, creed, color, sex, national origin, handicapped condition, sexual orientation or age."

"But sometimes we make fun of hyenas."

Got home, mowed lawn. Managed to start lawn mower the first pull. Gave self a small gold star.

There is nothing that quite caps the lawn-mowing experience of chiggers, sun, sweat, numbing vibration of the motor, stink of petroleum, scratches from overgrown rosebushes, attacks by wasps, and aching shoulders as suddenly having the neighbor's cat's poop become an aerosol.

I feel your pain. Cleaning out the litterbox and trying not to pass out from the reek of ammonia is a torture of its own, but its a self inflicted inconvenience really, so I've got no right to complain. :3

You *always* have the right to complain! Never let them tell you otherwise!

Humans aren't portrayed as very nice animals, either... except by other humans. ;P

No, I don't have anyone else to lick my face :)

Besides, she's so incredibly dense as to be brain-dead, I realize her standards aren't that high.
