The Good, The Bad, The Ugly ... and Happy Year of the Rat

Good - I had my annual performance review and all I'm saying is "wow". I hit the max on most categories and almost the max on the remainder. I've had a promotion to the official number two in the department and a very fine bonus rating for this year. Ka-chinggggggg!!

Bad - the asshole husband of a friend of my mother's, to whom she lent money, seems to think he doesn't have to repay the loan. I'm going for his throat when I get back. Can't decide whether to threaten a lawsuit, report it as extortion to the constabulary or as undeclared income to the tax department, or perhaps just kneecap the bastard!

Ugly - since Sunday and a day of what I can only describe as obscene abdominal cramps, every time I eat I end up with my upper tummy area looking and feeling like I swallowed a bowling ball. Or about six months' pregnant - and NO I'm not!! Without putting too fine an edge on it, digestion is proving to be something that is needing a bit of ummm 'help' right now. I don't know what's wrong and will see about it when I'm back because...

I'm in the air in 17 hours' time, flying east to the extreme cold of the weather and the extreme warmth of his embrace (and so much more!)

So I bid you a short adieu and wish you all

Enjoy your trip and canoodleing.

Have a nice trip!

The good: very cool! congrats

The Bad: I vote extortion, nothing like jail time to make one pause... although kneecaps sound more personally satisifying.

The Ugly: wow, I hope you feel better soon Fi, maybe it's from all the stress you've been under?

Safe flying, stay warm (until you are in his arms), and take care.

The good was good, the bad was disgusting and the ugly will get better.

Have a wonderful trip

Not surprising you have digestive problems with what's going on in your life.
As for the 'asshole',try all four, but not necessarily in that order.

Yay for the good!

Everything you mentioned as a solution for the bad sounds perfectly reasonable.

Ugly: Hmmm... lots of fibre, lots of water, and lots of exercise. Those should get things moving again.

I'm THRILLED that you're off (or probably on your way back by now) to see your love.

I hope you're doing well, Fiona. I hope you're coping, surviving...

Where are you? I'm anxious to hear how things went with meeting his loved ones.
