The Office Party: Everyone loves Cocktail Franks right?


 

 

In the brain of Lily Tomlin lived a 73 year old evangelist names  Sister Boogie Woman she was one of the radio shows.  A letter was sent to Sister Boogie Woman from  lady who lived in a nursing home.  The lady complained about the home always serving  Jello.   Sister Boogie Woman advised the lady to start a riot in the nursing home.     But the lady said she couldn’t because everyone in the nursing home liked Jello.

TRUE STORY: This is from a man who has worked for the same company for 11 years.

This gentleman loves his job and his co-workers and yet he avoids every company party.     It seems at every party, the food is the same, it doesn’t matter if it’s in office or in a restaurant, it is the same food.   For eleven years his company has served  same meats, side dishes, same drinks and the same cake (dry) bought from the same store.    One day at work he said it would be nice if they  had an Italian pot luck and  his co-worker was shocked and worse she blabbed and told other co-workers he didn’t like the food.   Because of his slip of the tongue he feels he is obligated to attend the next few parties.

Big city fella, Born and Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Lived in New York (a part time New Yorker) for three years . I have lived in the Sacramento area since 1993. When I first moved here, I hated it. Initially found the city too conservative for my tastes. A great place to raise children however too few options for adults . The city has grown up, there is much to do here. The city suffers from low self esteem in my opinion, locals have few positive words to say about their hometown. visitors and transplants are amazed at what they find here. From, the grand old homes in Alkali Flats, and the huge trees in midtown, there are many surprises in Sacramento. Theater is alive is this area . And finally ,there is a nightlife... In.downtown midtown, for the young and not so young. My Criticism is with local government. There is a shortage of visionaries in city hall. Sacramento has long relied on the state, feds and real estate for revenue. Like many cities in America,Downtown Sacramento was the hub of activity in the area. as the population moved to the suburbs and retail followed. The city has spent millions to revive downtown. Today less than ten thousand people live downtown. No one at city hall could connect the dots. Population-Retail. Business says Sacramento is challenging and many corporations have chosen to set up operations outside the cities limits. There is vision in the burbs. Sacramento has bones, there are many good pieces here, leaders seem unable or unwilling to put those pieces together into. Rant aside, I love it here. From the trees to the rivers. But its the people here that move me. Sacramento is one of the most integrated cities in America. I find I'm welcome everywhere. The spices work in this city of nearly 500,000 and for the most part these spices blend well together. From Ukrainians to Hispanics and a sizable gay community, all the spices seem to work well here. I frequently travel and occasionally I will venture into a city with huge racial borders, where its unsafe to visit after certain hours. I haven't found it here. I cant imagine living in a community where there is one hue or one spice. I love the big trees, Temple Coffee House, the Alhambra Safeway, Zelda's Pizza, Bicyclist in Midtown, The Mother Lode Saloon, Crest Theater, and the Rivers. I could go on and I might. Sacramento is home.
