Many Words, No Content

Post? Blog? What's that? Oh! I've been completely negligent in my blogging duties today. Perhaps I'm just a little overwhelmed by the response to the book club idea. We're coming up on last call before I throw a preliminary list of interested people together. If you're interested, go to the post and comment. Don't worry - this is a low-pressure, non-totalitarian book club thing. No one will be standing over you with a whip screaming "read damnit, read!" unless you like that sort of thing...and even then you're pretty much on your own.

So, where was I? Oh, the lack of a post today. I wish I could say that I was off finding the solution to world hunger or something noble like that. Truth is, I was just working. Which is actually a good thing...because I've been bored out of my skull the last few days at work. The plus side? No freakishly boring meetings with crazy clients and overbearing managers. The down side? Days. Last. Foreverrrrrrr.

Would you look at that? A whole post with no discernable value. My work here is done!

The days DO last forever when you have no work! That's part of what makes me crazy about my job. My suggestions...

1) Portable DVD player and Netflix subscription
2) Books on CD
3) Getting another degree online
4) Vodka tonics with lunch

Or any combination of the above.

What? There are actually people who have jobs in which they have no work to do??? Where are these jobs and how can I get one? Just cause I'd like to be paid to just read blogs and respond to email all day. :)

I can'tcomment. If you notice I am blogless today also...sigh...
Kinda liking Kerry's suggestion of the vodka and tonics...

I'd love to help out with this. I can set up a message board or blog or whatever really to do this if you want. I've been itching to be apart of something lately. ;)

So what is that Yoga book all about? Funny I noticed that b/c I was just trying to do some Yoga along with the yoga happening on our FIT channel and just about contorted my body into some postion I was not sure I would ever get out of. Scary stuff.

While it sounds all wonderful and glamorous to have nothing better to do than to sit around on your ass all day, it is, indeed, insanely boring. Nowhere near as fulfilling as ignoring your work for an afternoon and surfing the web as a "mental health break".

I, of course, have been busy today. Good busy, though, where I've got things to do but not 400 crazy manic clients calling me about stupid stuff.

I'm with Kerry, vodka for everyone, besides it looks like water, so who's to know (why yes, I drink 8 glasses of water per day, why do you ask?) - on the other hand, I am totally getting a buzz by the blinky IM lites on your webpage ...

At the moment I'm taking a break and dodging clients, I so want to marry and have babies with the person that invented voice mail.

Bored at work? I can send you some of my work :)))

I have one of those jobs too. Ever wake up with keyboard-imprint on your forehead?

Dude, I think that last sentence pretty much defines blogging.

You are such a professional. I cower in the great light of your, uh, greatness.

I love that feeling... that I've blogged for 6 paragraphs and said nothing of note or worth. *lol*
