Yesterday, I might have mentioned that I was a little bored. Sure, work got a little slow but that drastically changed yesterday afternoon when I got chosen for a team that's working on the dreaded P-word. That would be proposal. See? The government needs work to be performed and we want to do it. So we write big documents explaining how wonderful we are and why they should choose us. This is a lot like first graders standing in a gym yelling "pick me! pick me!" while teams are being formed for a dodgeball game. Except it takes longer. And is much less fun. And you dont get to throw shit at each other. And there's no naptime afterwards.

Anyway, so, I've got another proposal to work on...but to my credit I set others' expectations very low explaining that I had many other oars in the water and couldn't possibly work continuously on the effort - which is very much true.

If you're wondering where I am today, my calendar is booked - staff meetings, proposal meetings and even a meeting with Crazy Client I didn't know I had until about, well, 20 minutes ago.

Have a humpariffic Wednesday, everyone!

it could be worse, you could be working on drafting contracts, like me. hey! have i mentioned i know nothing about drafting contracts? yep, but if that little detail doesn't bother my bosses why should i worry my pretty little head over it?

this isn't hump day, this is fun day. hmm. i think i just channeled the Bangles.

i always referred to it as "mid-week crisis" that kept me from wanting to hump any clients... =) have a good one!

shameless self-promotion: i'm just posted a bitchin' banana bread recipe today so be sure to let some bananas sit on your counter for a week and try it out!

Know what needs to happen? You need to round up a dodgeball team and play against Crazy Client. I'd pay good money to play dodgeball against ANY of my clients. You'd probably spend more time perfecting your "behind-the-head double whammy" then your favorite guitar licks.

See, I think you should start messing with the crazy clients. Perhaps you could start all of your sentences with words beginning in vowels, or you could talk in iambic pentameter, or you could say "Bless you" when they didn't sneeze. Nothing like having the crazy people think you're the crazy one. They're fun to mess with.

Wow I'm working now. So hump day actually refers to me. Woah!! That's very humpariffic. I think.

Good luck.
I've been stuck on the phone call from hell for the past 25 minutes. Still am. In fact, I don't think I've heard a single word this guy has said since I've been on your blog - I hope there's not a quiz...
