what does it all mean

it’s 8:23am. i am supposed to be to work at nine. it takes 25-30 minutes to drive to work, but i still haven’t showered, brushed my teeth or put on clothes, and i really have no desire to do so.

this does not bode well for my day, does it?

    Hooky anyone? Take a sick day, if you can afford to. Just don’t go outside in front of television news crews waving wildly. And if you do, blame it on your fevered delirium.

    When I’m “sick” and I have the craving for a double quarter pounter with cheese and catsup (or ketchup if you will), I stick with the “drive-thru” service. (Between the blatant misspellings of through and doughnuts [i.e. donuts], no wonder home-schooling has become so popular)

    Pamper yourself; paint your toenails, take a shower THEN a long bath, try on all the clothes you own in various combinations; just do something for you and you alone.

    too late, i am already here and as a small consolation, as i was taking a left onto Pioneer Trail, the bossman pulled up behind me. he was even later!

    Well, maybe another day.

    I avoid the whole situation of being late by trudging off to work at 6:45am (5:45 your time, and if you’re ever up that early, I hope it’s for something other than work) when my spouse does.

    It’s fun being at work when no one else is here; There’s no lights on at all and the constant hum of the ventilation system drones on without being interrupted with the countless telephone conversations yet to be made. The first light I turn on is the one in the fridge as I stow away my treasure trove of French Vanilla Slim-Fast and Diet Mt. Dew. My techie office area has lights under the cabinets, which are the only ones I need. This is my private moment of Zen, until 8:30 or so when my co-techie comes in. Her first order of the day is to turn on the garish overhead fluorescent lights and web-radio.

    But seriously, take a shower before you take a bath; Taking a bath when you’re dirty just makes a nasty funk soup to simmer in.

    It’s even better when you beat the bossman when he’s running late!
