A momentous morning…I threw out my very-worn Minnie Mouse makeup case and replaced it with a chic black one with a pink lowercase “k” on it. What a very grown-up thing to do!
Another grown-up thing: I’m considering registering a political party affiliation…but I’m concerned that as soon as I do so, I will be inundated with requests for money.
Set my hair in hot rollers today, since I woke up at 3:00ish. By the time the world troops in, my hair will be straight again.
Speaking of…3:00 am seems to be a good time to get out of bed. I can shower up, take time getting ready, and even get an hour of Asheron’s Call in before having to go to work!
Yesterday, an email was sent to everyone in the building regarding a project. Without risking getting myself into trouble, if the text of the email had the word “black” in it where the word “white” was, the lawsuits would be flying. I saw the mail over 90 minutes ago and am still in shock. I’m afraid to complain about it, though. Isn’t that horrid?
Just like I’m afraid to take any more sick days this year. I get 10. I’ve used 5 (4 for my illnesses, 1 for the non-blogable worries of last month). If you use almost all of your sick days in one year, it is held against you in the form of a lower raise. This is open policy. So despite our paper’s health reporter writing: Flu and other cold viruses are easily transmittable, but that common-sense knowledge is often ignored by people who believe they must show up for work when sick, we don’t practice what we preach.
Mood: Was pleasant until I got to work today — now I’m irritable
Work docket: Did hand section, checked static. Going to continue work on the millionaire section, since I was informed I don’t have all of the logos for the sponsors. I knew that — I requested the logos on 9/22 — but wasn’t given them until yesterday. Because I wasn’t given the logos, I had to hunt them out online. I think I’m doing the weekly numbers today as well. Joy.
Lunch: Smart Ones Turkey Breast with some sort of side
Afternoon: Walk the Hopeslayer, head to YMCA
Evening: Coffee ‘n’ Coping with Mom’n’John at Starbucks.
