Blech. Was here at work until 4:00ish yesterday. Then food shopped. Bought a bunch of healthy foodstuffs, then had Chinese takeout for dinner. (smack head)
Work docket: Fiscal period 12 is over!!! So the end of month is NOW! NOW! NOW! AIEEEEEEEEE! (breathes into paper bag). I also have to work on TWO contests. One has to be set today for a Friday start. The other has to be sent out to the group tomorrow for a mid-January start. That one’s just about done. I have to do my Tuesday weekly numbers (which is what I’m working on now. I run a report, blog while it runs, get the results, run anotehr report, blog while it runs…etc), End of Month Values, I have a 10:00 conference call with one of our third-party vendors, AND I promised a reader I’d find a pic of his kid and put it with the story that mentions the kid. (ALL stories can have photos…newsroom continues to upload only one or two per section total…it irks the public.) I can’t wait for Damon to get back on Friday. Damon! I miss you!! Come back!!
And it’s like this: I am the LONELIEST person in the building. I’m secreted away in this big, bright, sterile office. I’m so busy that I can’t get out and socialize. Damon and Peter are both off. So it’s me and the Dave Matthews band. I think I’m turning into a hermit. I haven’t even put makeup on in DAYS. Why bother?
Lunch: Brought a frozen meal
Afternoon: Yeah…like I EVER get out of here on time anymore. Poor Max.
Evening: Unknown. Probably sit in a corner and twitch.
No, it’s really not that bad. Days always look more overwhelming first thing in the morning.
I crafted a quickie redesign idea last night. I’m really fond of big blocks of color. Thor didn’t like it when I ran it past him, but I’ll throw it here anyway.
