Pinky

Feels like Thursday

Well, I've been here 45 minutes, and work is already stressful. Trying to get other people's stuff to work is not my idea of fun. I am hoping I can get everything to work so I can take off tomorrow, although things currently aren't leaning that way. I'll know for sure in another 9 hours. Boy, that seems really far away.

I have decided to listen to Christmas music all day in an effort to get me into the Christmas spirit. Seeing how it's December 23, this shouldn't be hard, but Christmas seemed more 'magical' when I was a kid and didn't have a job, bills, or other everyday stresses. If I manage to take tomorrow off, that will no doubt help.

In shocking news, cephaler was up and at work at 7:15. Will wonders ever cease?

Totally implausible

In what seems to be a trend of totally implausible events, I am poised, for the 2nd straight year to be the highest total of picks in our football pool without actually winning a week. Last year, I managed to come out 3rd overall and didn't win a week. Quite amazing. This year, I will probably end up 5th and not have won a week. It really is amazing.

Wouldn't it be a shocker if my package arrived EARLY...
