Where in the hell is VE?

Why no blog postings for two days? VE has such a tough job. He went with his work group out to a snazzy lodge for two days rather than working. There, they paid for entertainment for the day (I chose to go hiking for the day...I know, cheap date but I refuse to golf - and that's a whole separate blog post). Then, they paid for a private dinner for the 17 of us and brought in a specific musician from Nashville (no, thank God it wasn't country music - that's a whole separate blog post) just to play for our 17 group audience. They gave us autographed CDs of his. It was pretty tough because it had an open bar the whole night and I was just forced to drink too much. Then they paid for a 90 minute massage the next morning. Then they paid for breakfast and lunch the next day and allowed me to invite my girlfriend and then do whatever the hell I wanted to do. Yes, this work gig is a tough one and it's been hard on VE. Oh, and I forgot to mention the gifts they had given to all of us: Nike digital watch, travel bag, jacket, and hiking book. And did I mention the bonus check? So it seems the girlfriend doesn't want to hear a lot of complaining about the job now...

Did the massage have a happy ending?
