You Know Its A Good Day When...

...you and your Very Senior Level Boss go to a meeting and your client tells you what a wonderful job you're doing...so good a job that he might as well figure out a way to give you more money so you can expand the scope of the project you're leading...

...your Very Senior Level Boss decides to hijack you and take you to another meeting so that you may mentor a co-worker...who happens to have been around much longer and is a bit more senior...

...your other, often difficult client stands up in a meeting, walks over to you, shakes your hand and proclaims that the job you did was fantastic, so much so you deserve a raise, a promotion and a statue in your honor...then he repeats this process again after your Extremely Senior Boss walks into the room...

...then you realize you're extremely tired, so much so that Dancing With The Stars even seems appealing in a pathetic, mindless, partially lobotomized kinda way...

I would definately say that ranks up there as a very good day! I hope I start having some of those very soon!

Sounds like a excellent work day.

Ooohh - Dancing With The Stars!!! (I loved it last week - I will fess up!)

Woot! Good for you. You are a rock star who is good at music reviews, getting women pregnant, blogging, impressing his bosses and, let's see, what else? Using apostrophes appropriately. Oops. Well, 4 out of 5 ain't bad!

Just kidding. I have been known to botch a few aprostrophe-appropriate words myself. *mwah* I still love you!

a statue out of what?

Posted by: jodi at June 8, 2005 7:03 PM

yay for you! I'm so glad you had such a great day at work. :-)

Ok, just start saving the money from the raise as soon as possible so you can STOP working and just blog for a living. ;)

Today was a good day

Sounds like you had a great day! I need one of those...today wasn't very good at all...thanks for the emails. They made me cheer up through the rough spots.

You and I rock, Dude. Just so happens I had my yearly review at work today. After nine long years, the word "excellent" came up a nauseating number of times (at last!) and I received a raise slightly above the usual maximum :-) I hate my job but I must be doing a good job fooling the boss!

Just great! I started at the top and by the time I get to you I've missed Dancing with the Stars!
Sounds like you've got a well earned sleep coming your way.

Just watched Dancing with the Stars and my couple is still in the competition. :)

But that is not why I came here.......congrats on a wonderful day and I'm sure many more wonderful days are ahead.

Hugs, Zissy

Rock on!

Posted by: lu at June 8, 2005 10:16 PM

HOLY CRAP!!! I am so proud of you!!!

Posted by: jen at June 8, 2005 10:17 PM

Good job, Chris! Sounds like you are the new golden boy.

If that happened to me, you can be sure I'd be hearing the alarm clock very soon after that.

Days like that, while you end up tired, do make life worth living!!

Posted by: Nina at June 8, 2005 10:53 PM

that sounds like an absolutely fantabulous day my friend. cool beans. and the cool thing about keeping a blog and putting this kind of thing on it is that on those rare low days, you can pull up the archives and refresh your memory about how much you rock.

You should ask for one of those big, fancy statues, maybe where you can be riding a horse with some kind of spiffy uniform and some metals and a sword...why not go whole hog??? Obviously you deserve it!!

Great way to boost your ego a bit :) Everyone needs that once and a while.

I haven't been lucky enough to see Dancing with the stars yet. Almost afraid I'll get sucked into another cheesy show.

Posted by: Lauren at June 9, 2005 8:26 AM

Congrats! Also, you watched Dancing With the Stars? I am ashamed to admit that I kind of, uh, missed it. Meaning that at some point I'd intended to WATCH it. Yikes.

Posted by: Fraulein N at June 9, 2005 9:00 AM

I watched "dancing with the stars" last night and I actually liked it.

But damn, those judges need to lighten the hell up.


Not that I care or anything...

Congratulations! I'm glad all the hard work you do is getting recognized. Hopefully a nice big fat raise is on the way.

Posted by: Zandria at June 9, 2005 11:43 AM

Super Chris! Da da da da da da! Also, yeah, you totally can't hear through comments, but just so you know that was your superhero theme song. Because you're that cool. :)

Posted by: Heather at June 9, 2005 8:22 PM

Clapping hands! You are the MAN! : ) Proud of you!
