Today I have some work to do on the bibliography I need to submit to get my dissertation proposal approved, so this will be short and sweet.
A few updates for you:
What’s happening with Dr.K?
One doesn’t get to be a world-renowned surgeon by being stupid. Dr.K’s main concern was to avoid being arrested and accused of abuse. So he thought carefully about all the things he was “forbidden” to do, and how he could use that to trigger Beauty to sue HIM for divorce.
Not allowed to take the kids to the park. What would happen if he just went ahead and did that?
Beauty would call the police in hysterics, claim the children had been kidnapped and create a media storm. FOUR CHILDREN ABDUCTED FROM THEIR HOME IN BROAD DAYLIGHT. Yeah, she really is THAT crazy.
So that was out.
Not allowed to speak English in the home to his children. What would happen if he just started to speak to them anyways?
Hours of hysterical raging and crying and threatening and sleep deprivation. Not worth it, and it wouldn’t work, anyways. Dr. K would just end up with another plate chucked at his head and blood on the floor.
Not allowed to have anything to do with the children’s schooling. Hmmm. When Beauty enrolled the two older children in their foreign language schools, she forbid Dr.K from ever going to the school, participating in any school activities or contacting the teachers (who are all bilingual and speak perfect English).
So Dr.K went to the school and added his name as an emergency contact for the school. Of course the bitch of a secretary called Beauty right away to let her know. And BINGO!
She lost her fucking mind. That apparently, was the final straw. She is no longer willing to live with Dr.K’s abuse and controlling behavior. Beauty has lawyered up and wants a divorce.
Dr.K is a fucking genius. This may turn out well for him, after all. We shall see.
We were gunning for an internal promotion, and guess what? By unanimous decision of the committee, Mr. JB GOT THE PROMOTION!
Now, we are still waiting on the Big Job, but for now, this is great news, and either way, Mr. JB is on a path to the top tiers of his organization. Congratulations, darling! You couldn’t have done it without me! I think I deserve a trip to the Victoria’s Secret online store for this one.
In other news today, a positive family climate in adolescence is linked to marriage quality in adulthood. Duh.
Men who play get out there and kick each other’s asses on the playing field are SMARTER than men who sit indoors researching current issues in women’s studies.
And finally, a happy marriage reduces the risk of heart attack in both men and women and at all ages. I wonder what divorce does? Probably just the opposite.
Time to go compare structural differences between venture capital and public equity markets. Leveraged buy-outs, equity vs., debt, size of investment, percentage acquired – blah blah blah.
I think I’ll do some on-line shopping first. So many knickers, so little time.
Lots of love,
