On Speaking the Part - Part 1

At a new job, there is so much to learn. And like many industries, the oil and gas industry has its own dialect. Its own vernacular. Its own jargon. A great deal of which is functional, colorful and explanatory. And some of which adapts or paraphrases common expressions in other walks of life. Like the phrase I enjoyed learning earlier today.

"Sometimes, what the Mud Logger giveth,
the Electric Logger taketh away."

It's probably (hopefully) too early for me to make a final decision on an epitaph, but that expression is currently at the top of the charts.

You know Garrett, had you opt for the job as host for American Idol you would have met your idol this week, Barry Manilow.

His face lift is healing beautifully.

G, what's the scoop on the camode in your new abode? Is there any privacy in the offing? Say perhaps separate locked rooms with their own sink, fan, lysol and materials for reading whilst you're nesting?
