Books to read.....

Here is a great new book that I recently read, it was so
humorous and delightful and gave you an insight to others lives whether they be sad or joyful. It is good to know that your not alone when certain things happen to you.
The book is Water Cooler Diaries”by Joni B. Cole and B.K. Rakhra . I will keep it as a resource to the list I’ve been keeping of ways to know what it is like to do various jobs. This one grew out of an experiment on March 27, 2007, when 500 women kept a diary of their day at work. Thirty-five of the diarists made it into the book. Here is a glimpse of what a handful of the diarists were doing at roughly 9 a.m. on the day they kept their log:

“One down, one bigger one to follow. The ankle fracture was boring, but a short simple case is nice every now and then. This next fellow is less fortunate.” — Erika J. Mitchell, orthopedic trauma surgeon

“Yes Bo, I will go smoke with you, and catch up on all the gossip. Bojan tells me ‘Rumor Control’ — that would be Mark and Bobby — has it we are all going to get a bonus. We’ll see. Those guys start rumors on everything from how the company is being sold, to who bought a new car, to who is being transferred, promoted, fired, or dating.” — Janice de la Garza, aircraft mechanic, Timco Aerosystems, Stokesdale, N.C.

“Holy @#$%. It’s already 9:00!!! But I just started the wash and Oprah’s on. I know what I’ll do. I’ll put Avon brochures in all my neighboring town homes. That way I can consider it working out. And I’ll put my honey’s new business fliers in each brochure. You always have to do more than one thing at a time! Multitask, multitask, multitask. Gosh, I love when that happens.” — Shirley Ekblad, Owner, Avon Beauty Center, Elmhurst, Ill.

“Walk to work and it is a beautiful warm day, the first in a long while. Everyone seems to be in a good mood. My office is in the Condé Nast building in Midtown Manhattan, home to many magazines, from Gourmet to Vogue to The New Yorker.” — Sara Moulton, celebrity chef, New York

So make a cup of tea and sit down and savour the pages!
