workin’ gal

If you’re close enough to me, you might have noticed my complaining as of late. I sit around at work for a while, waiting for stuff to do, and then all of a sudden I get super busy. This procedure and happenstance doesn’t bother me until I am no longer busy. I love being busy! I should work at a daily publication. I hate sitting around for more than 30 minutes wasting everyone’s time. Today, I am busy.

back to work

So today is my first day back since I left the office on the 19th of December. I must say it’s only half as much of a relief as I thought it would be. I also didn’t wear at my companion nearly as much as I thought I would; that’s a good thing. The new year was rung in with new friends and old. It was a nice mix of conversation and quiet. Too bad I only remember the first part of the evening. :) Here you go, b o b (and anyone else), MASH.

nothing too crazy

Except today was our xmas xchg at work. The idea here is we draw names, make a gift for under $10 or buy a gift for over $25 (!). Obviously it can become a little hectic for some, say, who don’t have a ton of money, and aren’t very creative. It all works out in the end though. I was going to take a picture of my gift, but I didn’t get around to it in time. I’ll have one from the department photographer by Monday, I’m sure.

Tuesday like a Wednesday

It’s a short week this week. I have Thursday and Friday off. Friday, not because of Thanksgiving, but because no one else is going to be here which would help me not get anything done if I were to show up. So, I’m boycotting the cafe here at work. They’re terribly inefficient and thoughtless when it comes to vegetarians. I’ll bet you $2 that they use chicken broth in the damn tomato soup. Anyhow, I’ve made it a week and two days without even setting foot in the cafe. This brings me to a site that I just found. Vegweb.com, I was looking for something quick to make and heat up for lunch. I’m kinda getting tired of cucumber and cheese sandwiches. So, this is what I found. I think I’ll be trying that tomorrow!

Busy week

I’ve been very unfaithful to my dedicated readers. The problem is that I’m actually busy at work for now and I don’t have time to find cool sites for you to look at or funny things to say. Though, someone at work clued me onto this one which is entertaining for about ten minutes.

Staying home

I used to never stay home from work, unless I couldn’t move. It’s nice to be able to stay home when it feels like you’re getting sick. Though, the loss in wages today will prompt me to cook food for lunch for the next week and a half. This will help in my efforts to boycott the workplace’s cafe.

And another thing

A Guild isn’t a guild without members. Here are the three Lollipoppers together. On a totally unrelated note.. I witnessed this (and subsequently took part in) today while playing JT’s Blocks.

Wow!

Work was definitely crazy today. A whole performance of the Wizard of Oz done in less than 3 minutes. I was an honorary member of the Guild. Everyone had an excellent time and I’m betting we won the pizza party this year. :)

Halloweener is near

They’re going totally crazy at work getting things ready for The Wizard of Oz. This is all very silly. I’m almost considering calling in sick tomorrow, but I won’t because then I’ll be leaving Denise to fend for herself. Ugh. We’re supposed to not spend a whole lot of time on this, nor waste company resources.. yet I’m not sure if the entire department (Web team aside) worked 8 hours combined today! I can’t wait until it’s over. I’m one of the Lollipop Guilders.
