Subject missing

I thought I had done it, even more than what I could imagine before. Wasn’t the sky then cleared, and the Sun beams dropped onto the Earth floor? But why, the fog sweeps suddenly,  to devour the pleasant pasture? And why again, … Continue reading

一周回顾

1.一对一培训 真的没想到,这次培训竟受到如此”隆重”待遇.整个课程就我一个学员!这样”一对一”的培训,想象中应该效果更好,只是和”一个轻松的培训”的预期大相径庭.每天都要早出晚归不说,课程也是排得满满的,而且一举一动都在”老师”的注目之下,想偷点儿懒都没门儿.加上星期三突如其来的风雪,每天回到家都觉得是dog-tired. 2. 温暖时刻 当然,这几天也有开心的时光.感谢教会的几个兄弟姐妹能和我一起午餐,欢乐笑语,让我很是放松.另外也有机会见到以前的同事,特别是Jenn.过去曾几次蒙她帮助,这次终于能当面向她道谢. 3. 重回”现实” TMX又在进行一个项目,需要我的参与.所以我的培训也缩短了半天.星期五晚上7点半到公司工作到12点回家.今天(星期六)早上6点又回到公司,预计要呆到下午3点半. 不到24小时,数次次往返家和公司之间.虽然公司给出租车,也实在是满辛苦,谋生不易呀!

Adding controllability to a low-reoccurrence scheduled maintenance job

In addition to its low reoccurrence, other restrictions may also apply to the job: One successful execute is a must over the … Continue reading

找乐子(再续)

首席熨衣师 ======== 上个礼拜六,女儿有航班要飞。做出门之前的准备时,拿着一件刚刚洗好的制服衬衫,对古风说“爸爸,帮我把衬衫熨一下,好吗?”刚好古风正闲着,顺手就接了过来。而且古风自己也很有几件衬衫要熨,就在电视机前,摆开熨衣板,给电熨斗加满水,插上电源,又把Frasier影碟放入影碟机里,打开电视,开始边看电视边熨衣服。 古风熨着,看着,偶尔还随着剧情乐一乐。很是自在。 也不知怎么回事儿,突然一个念头,从古风心里冒了出来。 嗯,不对呀。有些日子了,好像熨衣服成了古风的专职了。过去只要把自己的衬衫,裤子,外套等洗干净熨平整就万事大吉了。但一段时间以来,情形有异。古风的权力不知不觉地在扩大。儿子的衬衫,裤子,太太的衣服,现在连女儿的部分衣服都要古风来对付了。而且,居然没有人对古风的辛苦有任何表示。 想到此,只觉得是可忍,孰不可忍? 于是古风非常郑重地向古风太太提出严正的要求。 根据自己在熨衣方面任劳任怨的表现,技术不断的提升,和客户群的飞速扩展。请求正式授于古风“家庭首席熨衣师”的高级职称,奖励另算。 不知是当时心情特愉快还是如何,太太异乎寻常的慷慨。立马就批准了古风的职称要求。奖励暂免。 这是古风有生以来获得速度最快的一个高级职称。从申请到批准,总共费时30秒钟。 虽然奖励落空,但古风现在已经是首席熨衣师了。 🙂 反盗版 ===== 过去的两周左右,古风太太埋头于自己的博客。除去已贴出来的,还有一些写在一个WORD文件里的“存货”。其中有一篇是关于古风大儿子追女孩儿的笑话,古风很喜欢,就想“借”过来,贴到自己的博客上。不料,太太居然不借,因为她反盗版!

Cooling down…

Surprisingly, yesterday’s incident in some sense served as a “stress dispeller” for me as it seems cooling me down from the “overheated” state in the past few weeks. I found peace again in my mind this morning, after a heavy meal at Lone Star … Continue reading
