This isn't your father's third post!

I hope not, cause I have two followers at the moment and I'm married to one of them. Sorry ET, I'm not the David Prowse to your Mark Hamill.

In other news, if you don't follow the Bugle, your a nutter. If you do follow them, you have been following the epic story of the whitest trash in America, Delonte West. His views of Valentines Day made me laugh so hard my appendix disintegrated.

I'm meeting BRANDON "yes two links" SANDERSON in November at a book signing for The Gathering Storm!

Political Incorrectness Police

Today's Perp: Administrative Assistant
If you are an actual assistant, who helps a personal in a decentralized fashioned, often required to do tasks on the go, then this is not aimed at you. If you sit at a desk in front of or near another persons office or group of offices, your a secretary. Secretaries, do not be fooled into calling yourselves administrative assistants. I respect a secretary far more then an administrative assistant. Secretaries do hard work and deal with people all day. Administrative assistant brings to mind a monkey in a bellhop uniform. Heck, secretary at least implies you have skills in the areas of filing, typing, organization, and/or human relations. Administrative assistant sounds like you have few job skills other then holding, carrying, and following. See also: previous monkey statement. And saying your an executive administrative assistant means nothing more then your trying to use your title to cover for the fact that your boss isn't all that important in the grand scheme of things. Don't degrade yourself by connecting your position to another person's with the word "assistant." You do your job, your boss does hers or his, possibly. Secretaries of the world, I respect you.

My first act as your newly elected blogger...

I officially retire from professional tennis. I have had a great run. Little did I know back on September 21, 2009 at 12:20 when I started my professional tennis career that I would make it this far or this long. I really enjoyed the game and will remember it as I move onto other pursuits.
