This is Freestyle Friday!
A HAPPY Freestyle Friday!
Because it is PAYDAY!!
AND because I'm stomping up against a 3 day weekend! Presidents day is Monday.
I might just buy an Abraham Lincoln top hat and walk around my house.
And you know what? The boss isn't here!
What did I do to deserve a day such as THIS!!?
The week started off a tad bit janky. First of all, I took Monday off. That is a great thing. And I did it just because... just because I could. I had training this week, and it didn't start 'til Tuesday.
Tuesday and Wednesday I had this training. It is for some strange pilot computer data entry program that our group is participating in. I was being a hard azz about it last year, but I got a really nice cash award for participating. If I would've known that, I would've participated more, lol. I was a bit miffed about it taking away from my regular work (even had to come in on a Saturday to make up some of my regular work - NOT CUTE). But I promised myself I would at least pay attention to what's going on.
It was hard. Why? Because I don't roll up into work until 10:15 a.m. Those days I had to be in at 8 am.
Talk about being throwed off all week? Wow. Amazing how a 2 hour change in arrival time has me all O_o.
Now, I wake up at 6. But I don't start getting ready until 8:30.
So I have been as irritable as a 2 year old when you wake her up in the morning.
I THINK I'm back on schedule now. I THINK.
Like I said the boss is off today. Yesterday, I was in my cubicle and I heard my coworker Lieutennant Commander Meek-Meek say something horrid.
"LadyLee can act for you tomorrow."
Oh my! She almost caught my Good book of Cuss upside her head. O_O
Everyone knows I don't like to "act", i.e., be in charge. I don't like being in charge of other people. That's not cute. I have a hard enough time being in charge of myself. I don't wanna go around checking on NOBODY and what they are up to. I don't care. The last time I was in charge, I was tricked. My boss text me while I was on my way to work about it. AND she told me that I had to sit in for her in a supervisor meeting. That was hilarious. Still giving her the side-eye over that one.
After running hard to my boss' office yesterday, trying to prevent this tomfoolery, everything worked out well. An indian chick in our group is in charge today. I do believe she likes to be in charge. I like for her to be in charge too, because she is good about leaving me alone and not harrassing me. GLORY!!
I went over and made extra sure the Indian chick knew she was in charge. She knew she was. And she had a sparkle in her eye. She was really glad about it.
And that's a good thing!!
I also had a good annual work review yesterday. So you KNOW I'm trying to chill today. Ya'll better hope I get a little work done!
Current Events. There were a BUNCH of current events in the news. I remember the bizarre... and the tragic.
A meteor hit Russia this morning.
Can you imagine driving in to work this morning and seeing some craziness flying across the sky???
700 people injured. That's a lot of people.
And we're living in an age now where much can be captured on our cellphone cameras. Sigh.
That's a lot to think about right there. And a lot to work on.
Song of the week. So... I really dig this cut. "I Decided" by Liv Warfield.
A good song, but it is a bit rambling. My cubicle mate and I were checking it out. The singer is basically fussing through the whole song. She has decided to leave her man. I was a little miffed by the last line.
"I decided... to think you might change"
Isn't that what us chickens do? We know that man is giving you all kinds of problems and stressing us out... then we decide to stay with him.
As if the craziness will end. We know it won't.
When will we learn?
Well, that is all for the week. I am looking forward to my weekend. Not much done. I might try to get my taxes done. My sister said she could do them. I rather throw her some cheese to do it, than pay the astronomical amount I usually pay to have them done. We will see how that goes.
Have a great weekend!
