Shovel Ready Projects.

Get used to that.

We as a nation are going to hear that SO MANY FREAKIN' times in the next couple years that I'm guessing it's been copyrighted and Obama is gonna pocket some coin everytime it gets said.

Pretty cool how I said 'pocket some coin', huh?

He's probably not pocketing these coins, though.

My driveway was shovel ready on Monday. Is that what this means, George?

P.S. "Pocket some coin" is boss.

Say goodnight, Sparkle.

Goodnight, Sparkle!

(P.S. Chicken butt!)

Funny how "shovel" and "shovel ready" can mean different things to different people. When my best friend and I used the term "shovel" we always used it like this "I have a shovel and a 45 and nobody will miss you." Of course, we also used the "shovel and a 45" phrase when talking about our first husbands.

You can blame Bush.

HA! I love it.

Lois Lane said...

Kathy was married to Bush????

Shovel ready construction jobs are a good sign, we should be able to get started quickly.

A smart solution is construction staffing. When you need skilled tradesmen think of GRUS

Let's get together and bluesky some shovel ready projects that will impact the infrastructure in a synergistic sort of way, leaving time for team building and thinking outside the box.

Heeee! I'd like to leverage your brainstorm. Before we bluesky, let's prairie dog on out of our cutting-edge silos and smack some shovel-ready low-hanging fruit!

Lois Lane said...

Ladies, ladies. Before we get carried away, do we have a paradigm for this yet? We need to set up a dashboard to evaluate whether the low hanging fruit is scalable. I mean, c'mon, let's look at the big picture here...

Cake, can I borrow that pen?

I Ain't No Oprah said...

Or something!

Cake said...

I had a great follow-up comment (as long as great means equally nonsensical) but IANO's "or something" just caps the exchange too perfectly.

High fives all around!

I'm ready to break the ground on your new post.

I'm like a teamster--I get paid overtime for waiting.

Mach schnell, whistle-britches.

IANO's a slackah, pass it on.
