Remember that television show? Some days, that’s what work is really like for me. Not the whole surrounded-by-comedians-and-models thing … too bad, actually. More the whole ‘just shoot me’ thing. Today, for example:
- I’m covering for a coworker and while you always think that you’ve got everything under control, the unexpected always happens. (Hm, that’s wise. I should write that down. Oh wait, someone already did.) There’s a thingy that needs to be changed and I don’t know how to change it and I’m the only one allowed to…. <sigh>.
- A darling friend of mine apparently put me up for some kind of “women and work/life balance” interview before a dinner we’re going to soon. While that would normally thrill me, today it just tires me to think about.
- I can’t seem to eat the right things. You know how sometimes everything you eat gives you exactly the wrong kind of energy? And then I eat sugar so I don’t crash… vicious cycle.
Just thinking of these things is kind of making work harder. So I’m going to stop.
(Ok, sometimes work rocks. For example, I just got this IM:
Friend: You know what’s weird?
