Blogging, Work

December 12, 2003

Early blog, right? That’s because I’m still at home.

Here’s what transpired:

  • I had a meetin’ about the “Future of Online” scheduled for 1pm today with a couple of bigwigs. Dandy.
  • Then it was switched to 3pm and I was asked if I could switch my schedule a bit to accommodate. Saying “NO” would be like telling Bush, Cheney, Rumsfield, and Rice, “Nope” so I said, SURE! Emailed Clark and asked him to do the site solo this morning and I’d work 8:30 to 5.
  • THEN, as I’m leaving, I was told that the meeting was cancelled altogether and will be rescheduled for next Tuesday or Friday.
  • So rather than switch back, I decide to sleep in and still go in for 8:30. Or maybe a bit earlier if I get restless here.

    And, as predicted yesterday, the top story on is the flooding. 😉

    Mood: Well-slept and still early for work. I may even see David this morning!
    Work docket: Hmmmmmm…not at work yet, but I’ll venture I’ll be doing Hot Properties, some promo work for Varsity All-stars and Women on the Run
    Lunch: Probably lunch with Erin, who got a job!!! She starts Monday and will be working less than a mile from me, so we’ll be able to meet for lunch often!
    Evening: I forgot to buy oatmeal yesterday at Genuardi’s. I also need oven cleaner. And maybe we’ll have a late-night CookieCam session to make up for the big crash and burn (literally) that was yesterday.
    Weekend: I was a bad girl and bought a new online game — Horizons. My Asheron’s Call Guild seems to be jumping to this one, so I’ll bite. I’ll play that this weekend, plus bake, decorate for Christmas, and if I’m not dead, watch a Wrestling PPV at Mom’s Sunday night.

    And now…the Friday Five!

    1. Do you enjoy the cold weather and snow for the holidays?
    I hate cold weather. It snowed last week, but the temperatures were fairly warm (for snow) so that was pretty nice. But I don’t like bitter biting cold winds. Not even for Christmas.

    2. What is your ideal holiday celebration? How, where, with whom would you celebrate to make things perfect?

    My ideal CHRISTMAS celebration (I celebrate Christmas so for me it’s “Christmas Celebration” — No PC police on this blog, thanks) is time with family, glowing lights, and lots of food. And perfect presents to give. I find so much satisfaction in hunting down the “RIGHT” gift for people. 🙂

    3. Do you do have any holiday traditions?
    I’m mostly Italian, so on Christmas Eve we eat the Seven Fishes, a big buffet-style dinner. It’s supposed to be meat-free, but since none of us married cousins married Italian guys, there’s always meat. We do a gift exchange among the adults, which is nice too.

    Can we count CookieCam as a holiday tradition? I bake Christmas Cookies in front of 2 webcams, which refresh every 30 seconds. See CookieCam for more info!

    4. Do you do anything to help the needy?
    Salvation Army donations, Toys for Tots, Animal Orphanage donation.

    5. What one gift would you like for yourself?
    More self-confidence. What? The question didn’t say it had to be a gift that had to be purchased!.
