There is an odd air about the office this morning. Some of them are silent. Some of them are rejoicing silently. Some of them are audibly upset. Apparently, this is ďdevastatingĒ for us as a firm. There are jeers about Arnoldís lack of intelligence, I think I actually heard one of my bosses moaning as if in pain a few moments ago. Theyíre so passionate about it! I can see why. Itís painful when a hole is put in your pocket. I wonder where this is going to lead us, and if, when it does, Iím still around to be led by it.
But no matter. Iím not one for discussing politics. I donít get very heated about the issues, because I try to think of them logically and not emotionally. Therefore, Iím too annoying for many to bother to bring them up with me. When they do, I just listen and nod, paying attention to the rant and taking note of all the facial twitches of the suddenly animated person. Itís so nice to fall back on past drug visuals in moments like these.
So! I saw the lights in the gallery last night! They look FABULOUS! Iím so excited! M.s. has been so busy getting everything ready for the big premier next week! We're going to have such a blast. Earlier, at school I found out I got a 96% on my first paper for this class. The teacher even quoted one of the analogies I used in my paper, without attributing it (an even greater compliment than if he had). School is going well, then. It always is when Iím understanding the material and getting a good grade. Thatís just the way I work.
My father leaves for Ireland in the morning. Iím looking forward to having lunch with him today. Heís going with all of his siblings, and heís very excited about the trip. Though heís been to Ireland more than a few times (we have family there, my fatherís 2nd generation Irish), heís never been with all of his siblings. I hope itís as special and memorable for him as it promises to be.
Iím struggling not to flip out over one of my cases right now. Come on, people! Make a decision! What is it with people in authority being unable to make decisions? You can weigh the facts until the cows come home, but nothing will get DONE unless you DECIDE and DO IT. Fuck. So many people get in the way of productivity. And they piss me off. Breathe.
Okay, Iím better. Iím going to pull a new Positive Playback card and see what it tells me. ďGive of yourself and the universe reciprocates in surprising and wonderful ways.Ē Huh. Nope, still pissed. Alright, Iíll just throw myself into my work and look forward to noon, lunch with Dad, and then after work, carving pumpkins with Spider Monkey. The day is upon me, and by golly, Iím gonna thrust my hips right up on it! Whoís fucking WHO! HAAHAAAAAA!
Perhaps I should compose myself. Ha. There. Done. Grab your day by the hair and ride it into the sunset. Just for me.
