Supervisor of the Month – February 2015

Another goal achieved – I was awarded Supervisor of the Month for February 2015 based on my team’s overall scorecard performance.

I just did something that I’ve never been financially able to do: I just set all of my bills up on Auto-Pay.

I love my job.

Supervisor of the Month

Yesterday, just before ending my shift, my Sr. Manager approached me and just sort of stood there. I asked her if she needed something, to which she replied “no”, and continued to just stand there.

I knew something was up, but wasn’t quite sure what.

Then within seconds, a few more people came over with a gift bag and balloons and it all became clear. I had won Supervisor of the month for the month of September 2014! (They were behind in delivering it because I had been out on leave) This makes my second time earning the award, the first being August 2014. (I also won “Support Employee of the month” in June 2013 prior to becoming a supervisor)

The best part? I was able to mark my first goal of 2015 as complete! (However, I would still like to earn the award again for a month in 2015)

Re: Country

When I first heard this song —-> link on the radio a few months back I immediately thought that some of Taylor’s songs would do well on the country circuit…

JMO…

Regarding Taylor giving credit where credit is due—-

If there’s one thing Taylor HAS done (right) during his career )Pre AND Post Idol), is give credit on the songs he performs…I think I’ve listened to every live set out there and he’s always mentioning some band, or songwriter, or musician that might be behind whatever song he is about to sing…even giving “extra” bits of info like WHERE a song was written or first performed, etc…..

How many times did he give a song credit at the Roxy alone? I know he did before singing “Nineteen” (written by Jeffrey Steel) and “The Right Place” (written by Bryan Adams) and “My Sweet Lord” which is a Billy Preston version of a George Harrison song…One of the times I saw him live he gave credit to numerous songwriters (rob thomas comes to mind)

Now, don’t get me wrong…I’ve done my fair share of “worrying” over the last few years of my “fantardom”…what song will he sing? What will he wear? will he pull it off? will he sell out? blah, blah, blah… but worry about HIM–Taylor Hicks– taking credit for a song he didn’t write/create? Nope. Can’t say I ever worried about that, because he’s never given me reason to.

Can I just say how glad I am that THIS is the song he’s chosen to sing on AI and not “What’s right is right” or “the distance”? It’s arguably the best song on the album, in my opinion.

I am much looking forward to what has been a long time comin’…

Since I can’t edit…I brought up the “dial idol” history in response to this:

“Now think, how many voted for him ONLY after their favorite was not there any more? ”

That might be true, but he was #1 at Dial Idol every week, which shows a trend…not a sudden change because someone’s favorite is gone.

On your point about the # of voters for Taylor…
Yes, there are power voters and such…Lord knows I had two phones going for two hours straight every week. LOL But even without all that I firmly believe he had far more fans than the others that year…He was #1 EVERY week at Dial Idol…EVERY week! (Go look, it’s still there to see)…and a lot of weeks he was ahead by far. A lot of people thought Chris was his biggest competition, but Chris was low on Dial Idol a lot and went home at top 4. Kat’s and Elliot’s homecomings PALED in comparison to Taylor’s. Thousands of people lined the streets for Taylor. I think there was maybe 20 for Kat. (j/k, but it wasn’t many…hehe) and I know things like post counts and google hits don’t really measure a person’s “success”, but he had faaaaar more than the other contestants that year. I’m just saying that like, in almost every facet that you can think of, Taylor was sooo far ahead of the others that year, not just by a little, but AHEAD. Ya know?

Bottom line for me is no matter what the current state of his carrer might be, the fact remains that he was HUGELY popular the year he won and he DID have a huge following….

You know, for a lot of people Taylor IS the punchline.
He’s been called the worst American Idol winner of them all.
None of my family and RL friends like him or his music.
I am mocked because it’s 3 years later and not only did I KNOW about his new album coming out, but I was in line to buy it the day it did.
I’m ok with being the only one in my circle of friends to have “Taylor Hicks” in my shuffle.
I’ve completely accepted the fact that Taylor is not some huge pop sensation. Or rock star. Or a wildly successful indie musician. Or… [whatever it is that you want him to be]

Right now, he’s just not the “cool” thing to enjoy. I haven’t liked a lot of the decisions he’s made in his career. The ice cream cone…Gimme tonight…the side lean…taylorhickshq…

…but you know what? None of that really matters because all I gotta do is put on my headphones and listen to some “Georgia” or some “Texas Flood” or some “Naked in the Jungle” or any number of his songs where he really had those “moments” and I’m right back where I was three years ago…ardent supporter…loyal fan…whether it’s the “in” thing to be or not.

His voice…always brings me back.
