... [May. 4th, 2009|10:30 am]
I am troubled. I had another round of meetings, one of which was yet another with the competitors. It did not go well, but that's not even the issue. I overheard something, and I won't talk about it here, but the significance of it hit me like a bag of bricks. I hope I'm just imagining things, because if it's what I think it is, then...I don't even know what to say.

I have to be imagining things. I just have to.

The memories... [Apr. 21st, 2009|10:24 am]
I should probably be enjoying my vacation, but I just wanted to stop in and say that Loretta and I are having a blast. This place is truly paradise to me, and I can't wait to live here again when I retire. I have so many memories here, both wonderful and tragic, but they all shaped me. Either way, they made me who I am, and I couldn't have gotten to where I am now without them.

Tomorrow is our last day, and then it's back to work. I am not looking forward to that.

Joy! [Apr. 16th, 2009|11:14 am]
Due to the absurd amounts of stress work has been putting on me lately, I've decided to take a few of my vacation days early and go on a short trip with Loretta. And while it's not quite summer just yet, we're going to our summer home in Rome. This will be a nice break, and I can't wait to get out on the sea.

For now, though, I still have a bit more work left to do. Namely, I have a meeting with a competitor. We're trying to settle a 3-year dispute, and it's not pretty. Wish me luck!

Woe is me. [Apr. 7th, 2009|12:49 pm]
My daughter has always been a bit of a prankster. But last week, she pulled the biggest prank imaginable. I turned on my laptop, and everything was rearranged. My desktop had a picture of a clown (I'm terrified of them), all my icons were replaced with bizarre symbols (I saw an alien and a winged cat, I'm sure), and clicking the "Start" menu played a cacophonous sound I never went to hear again. She's always been a computer wiz, but the lengths she went to do this in the hour she was visiting my home must have been extreme. She's skilled, but hopefully next time she'll put those skills to better use than terrifying me! I was April Fooled, and I thought it was going to cost me my job. In this economic climate, replacing this laptop wouldn't be an easy feat.

Speaking of work, it's still tough lately. In fact, I am very stressed out. I think I'll have to take the boat out once the weather is a bit nicer.

Busy, busy, busy... [Mar. 31st, 2009|07:43 am]
I've had a ridiculously large amount of work to do lately, and it's nice to finally be able to blow off some steam. My wife and I went out to a nice little Italian restaurant for dinner, and while it wasn't as good as the real deal, we still enjoyed ourselves. My mother wasn't  Italian by birth, but she could definitely cook like one, and I consider her just as qualified as any chef.

After dinner, we took a stroll around Central Park, and then went home to enjoy some Audrew Hepburn films. I swear we've seen every one of them at least 4 times, but Loretta loves them. And really, I can't say I blame her!

Right now I'm just getting ready for work. I hope today isn't as brutal as yesterday...

Hello! [Mar. 28th, 2009|08:51 am]
So this is my new blog. I've never used one of these before, so I hope I don't screw anything up. Maybe things will be OK if I just treat it like a journal? It is a "LiveJournal," after all.

My name is Niel, and I am a scientist. I am a Department Director at Widmore Industries, and I spend most of my spare time fishing or spending time with my wife. I like reading, sailing and music. And that's about it!

Perhaps I'll have something of substance to say in my next post, but I just wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself. So, hello!
