Blogging from work.



The machine at home is on the blink. While I am working on it I have to do my thang on the sly from he office.
A lot of people tell me that they need a vacation after coming back from vacation. I don't. I just need to drive around in second gear until the long hill of returning to slightly uncontrolled madness of everyday life feels like it's levelled off.
It feels a little strange not being able to tool around the virtual flyways and see what's happening with you folks, but not having a computer at home is also a bit of a relief. It means that I can put off doing a lot of work that I usually take care of in the morning before classes or while enjoying a drink after dinner.
I didn't have a leprechaun ( some of you have expressed an acute dislike of them) so I figure that the little green octobuddy (courtesy of Natalie Dee) would do just fine. He may not be as quiet as the Hughes' but I think he might do in a pinch.

Mr. Grant will just have to wait for some other future J-pants gal and the show will proceed just like Nancy Reagan would have it: With the zodiac in consultation and almost completely drug free.
Of course my stars are in the house of Aquarius which means that I am allowed to walk around on stage without clothes and with the hirsute companion of choice without worring about my marital state.

The shear genuis of a being similar to Wile e Coyote has exposed a fine example of irony and has left me with yet another project to consider.

I can't remember the last time I went to a restaurant and enjoyed a bottle of wine. Same goes for a live performance of either music or drama. How bout you?

I think the wife deserves to get blasted on Saturday. I know I do.

Have an AWESOME weekend!!

Try to leave "Tom Swifty" comments, please.

irelessly, "writing this stuff can be taxing."

The Troll said...

More people quit their jobs in the first month after vacation than in the other 11 months combined.

FACT!

Grant said...

Work has exhausted me and I'm just trying to survive long enough to go home and get in bed. I hope I can live long enough to die.

NYD said...

Troll~ That makes sense. A vacation is about the only thing that will show you the futility of your day to day endeavors.

Grant~ Don't die yet. I've got tons of uncencored J-porn I haven't shared with you. Some of it involves hello kitty!!!!!

VE said...

Who is Tom and why is he swifty? I have a swifter...does that count?

Doesn't vacation imply vacate? So if you don't go anywhere on vacation, can you really call it that? I always think of that as the ultimate goal and all the work nonsense as the game upon which to try and reach that goal.

I don't have an idea what kind of comments Tom Swift wrote...

No I have never had wine or alcohol in my life ( I may be missing something I know) But I think I would like to start with champagne...

Live performance? I haven't been to one for a decade, ever since my bare back got molested by a cop when I went last time...

Green Octopus is good. At least he is grinning & better than some who are always grumpy & frowning...

Period!

Welcome to the world of professional blogging! You deserve a raise!
(Plenty of live music thisaway)

Troll's factoid is very interesting to me. Maybe that's why I don't take vacations?

I often dream of a vacation when I'm not plugged into any technology - I would be free from the cell phone/email/etc. But to be a true vacation, I would need to be free of all of the time it requires when you return to catch up.

THAT'S why I don't go on vacation.

Have a great weekend - drink!

What a cute little green octobuddy. I don't know how Tom Swift felt about it, but I know I always feel like I need a vacation when trying to acclimate back to work after a vacation.:)

I worry more about folks returning from vacation carrying heavy duffle-bags filled with weaponry. That's why it's so important to let them go prior to their return.

lime said...

my brain is too mushy to work swiftly.

i think the octopus will work nicely.

the last time i enjoyed some wine at a nice restuaruant was when my dad took me in june. a live performance? aside from my kids' band concerts i couldn't even begin to recall when.

moi said...

Well, it must be a testament to my mushed-up brain that I understood nearly nothing of what you wrote in your post except "bottle of wine" and "blasted." Cheers, dude! Have a Spamalot Weekend!

Ming the Merciless said...

Dude, I lost you after the second paragraph. :-)

Maybe I need to re-read it...in case there is some deeper meaning in your message. What do you think?

Megan said...

"Wile. E. Coyote. Super Genius. I love the way that rolls out."

Don't try and beat me on Looney Tunes. I got you beat...

NYD said...

VE~ My mind has been vacant for quite some time. Don't know if that rates a vacation.

Mona~ Having you back molested by a cop is bad enough, but no alcohol? For shame.

Allan~ Pros get paid. I am a rank amture. Music ain't live unless I can smell it.

ABoxer~ It's the catch up time that makes coming back hard.

SJ~ I don't know how Tom Swift would feel about vacations either, but I do think he would find a way to poke fun at them.

Pug~ The people I worry about are the ones with duffle bags filled with cheap souvenirs from the Beijing Olympics.

Lime~ Your brain on mush works better tham most folks when they're firin' on all pins

Apple Annie~ Well I'm surprised that the Tom Swifties got past you as well.

Ming~ This was a strange post where I replied to peoples comments from another post.

I like to play my games and more often than not it backfires.

Blogging from work is the same as getting paid to blog. I keep telling myself that.
