My mind is a dangerous place. Make sure you wear a cup.

On the road, and movin' across town...

Today I leave for Alabama. Otherwise known as The Inbred State. Montgomery today and Monday, Birmingham on Tuesday, Opelika on Wednesday, and Dothan on Thursday.

Swell. At least I've got a nice ride for it. One of my girls at National saved a new Chrysler Pacifica for me. Sweet.

I will still be posting and responding to comments. I may be a little slow getting around to everyone's blogs at least for the first couple of days, it depends on how much hotel time I have.

Of course, tomorrow's post will be Mrs. Fab's, in which she names the winner. As I write this, I do not know who she is leaning towards, but I have a feeling that she is not going to pick the same person I would have.

We'll see.

And this will probably be the last business trip I take for the company. I have decided to step down from my corporate position and return to my previous gig as the recruitment manager for the local branch across town.

This will please Billy, who could never quite resolve himself to the fact that he had engaged in man-love with a corporate goon.

There are a lot of reasons for this move, and I won't bore you with them. Well, I probably would, except a lot of people from work read this blog, and I feel I should keep a few things close to the vest. Bottom line, though, is that I should be happier over there and will be able to contribute a lot more to the company.

The worst part of the move? No more chances to see Ginny in Atlanta. I always figured I'd have a chance to meet Ms. M too. No chance to meet Pissy in Hell. I guess I'll have to restrict my blogger meetings to Florida bloggers. Oh wait, ya'll are coming to the party, though, right?
We'll hang out then!

I need to get with CP about having lunch one day while there is still a reason for me to be down in her neck of the woods.

Gotta pack. Cue Willie Nelson. On the road again...

Awww. No more trips to Atlanta?? I'm crushed! But being happy in your job is paramount, so whatever it takes. I'm glad you knew yourself well enough to make the change. Good for you. Be safe in your travels this week. Come back a new man :)

Have a safe trip and enjoy the ride kiddo.

I guess you won't be visiting my corn field any time soon either. The lease was running out on the lemurs anyway. They will be sadly dissappointed when they are returned to the zoo.

Sometimes in a "step down" is what it takes to create balance in your life. If it will make you happy then you made the right decision.

Don't forget about audio blogging while away for a few days!

As long as you are happy with the switch in jobs thats all that counts! Being happy in your work is not something everyone gets to have.

Safe travels to you!

I thought Kentucky was the inbred state. That is what people from Indiana always say.

You better not call me. Not after I got that restraining order when I read Jin's blog.

Opelika? What the heck is there to do in Opelika, Alabama?

I used to live in Mountain Brook, Alabama (suburb of Birmingham). Don't tell anybody but I loved it there.

You just call me, lovetoy! I'm there. I will call in sick at a given moments notice.

You just got it like that...a'aight?

Word.

No need for Mrs. Fab to pick me, either. I mean, why state the obvious?

We're not all inbred down in the South. Some of us even know how to use silverware!

I'm a Birmingham girl, Mr. Fab.
Hope you enjoy your stay in my neck of the woods.
We're not as inbred as we appear...or that may be poor vision in my 3rd eye ;)

I have never been to Alabama but I know that will be one of the states we travel through on our way cross country! I'm a little nervous for Jason being that he is jewish and they may not see a lot of those there jews in most sections of Alaybamy.

Blogger Mr. Fabulous said...

CadenceMichelle--Damn few, girl, damn few!

Kayla--That third eye will never amount to anything if you don't exercise it!

Deb--You are right to be worried. Throw a couple of Klan sheets in the back seat to throw them off the trail!

I had a horrendous incident where I worked at a job that was so stressful it caused me to gnash my teeth in my sleep. About 7 months into the job, I had a toothache, and I thought, "Hmmm, is this what a cavity feels like?" Because I've never had a cavity in my whole life -- seriously -- and I'm 40 this year! So finally, the pain got bad enough (I have a HUGE pain tolerance and an innate ability to ignore irritating things, so I knew something really bad was about to go down) I went to the dentist. Turns out I'd been griding and gnashing so badly when I was sleeping that I had cracked my far back left molar IN HALF and there was no way to save it. They had to pull the tooth. (By the way -- the assholes that I worked for were irritated that had to take a day off to get my tooth pulled because they had to knock me out -- kind of gives you an idea of why I cracked the farking tooth in the first place, fookers.)

Why yes, I took it extremely well, why do you ask? Oh, you heard the rumors? I became completely hysterical and asked my family and closest friends, "Does this mean I have to move to Arkansas and marry my brother????" And in my hysteria, I was dead serious -- only later as people were recounting this to me did I realize how very, very funny my questions were!

Yes, today I am sans tooth, but it's way in the back on the bottom left and you can't even tell. If it were a front tooth, I'd be about $5 grand in debt, because I'm not going there -- no way no how.
