can it be Monday again?  
Wednesday is my one-on-one day with my manager, where I have to come up with persuasive evidence that I've been doing my job to the best of my abilities. This week, I have two hours and ten minutes in which to prepare that evidence before the meeting.

I thought I'd sent my latest J/V writing to my work account as an attachment, but it's...not here. That's disconcerting. It didn't get spam-filtered. Wouldn't it be awful if I sent it by accident to a different but still valid company account? It seems unlikely, but I will worry about this now all day. Plus, I can't post anything. Which is probably for the best, because it forces me to focus on work. But where's the fun in that?

You know, my life could be worse. I could have stumbled across evidence of a global criminal organization and been targeted for assassination and been saved only by posing as a heroin addict in a well-publicized bust, thereby losing my well-paying job and being forced to fill salt shakers for friends.

o.O

Good morning.

Now *that's* looking on the bright side. :)

Good morning. Good luck with your meeting. Look at it this way, at least you'll be on the other side of it by the afternoon. If it was Monday, you wouldn't have to do it, but then it would loom. And nothing is worse than a looming meeting.

LOOMING CLOWNS!

I'm just saying.

Hee, don't make me think of the Jack Handy one about the clowns. I'll be saying it all day long, and my coworkers will be grumpy.

You can fill my saltshaker any day, toots.

Meetings...

Oh, well, here's hoping you don't burst into tears with the effort of not throttling your supervisor when he lists concerns about your job performance that all come down to not being able to be two places at once.

Julia, y'canna change the laws of physics, laws of physics, y'canna change the laws of physics, laws of physics, Jim!

Oh, no--I meant that *in* two hours I have a meeting with him, and in that time I have to prep. ;)

It *is* two days closer to Friday, that's true. I have a happy for that, at least. :)

Waiting with you on tenterhooks (what are those anyway?)...
ruthless1ruthless1 on June 15th, 2005 06:18 pm (UTC)
I always imagine them as the little itty bitt claws that bats have on the ends of their creepy little bat fingers. But I could be wrong....

...except that bats are cute, not creepy...

Tenterhooks are the things you attatch freshly woven cloth to, to stretch it true and flat.

Julia, fountain of utterly useless information

Well thank you!
Not useless - it may help me win a quiz one day!

Ya know, you really could. Glad to see you have some perspective, babe.

Hmmm... This means I won't come back to your LJ every fifteen minutes and press 'reload'. Gah, it means I need to actually do something else.

Maybe I should get a life or something... *rushes to eBay to get one*
Anna S.: puppyeliade on June 15th, 2005 11:04 pm (UTC)
I'll probably post tonight, around 11:00ish my time (if not sooner). :) I feel fairly confident saying that, and if I don't post, you can, um...TOSS PUPPIES AT ME, AIYEE, DEADLY PUPPIESSSSS!
Rimau Sua Lay: gimmesua_lay on June 15th, 2005 11:08 pm (UTC)
Whoo! That means I actually have a reason to stay up all night and read... er... culture stuff.

*hides*

But what if you actually want to have me toss puppies at you? It could be like a kink or something! I toss a puppy at you and you like it so much you never update again!

*grabs a kitten instead*
Anna S.: kitteneliade on June 15th, 2005 11:21 pm (UTC)
Oh my god--KITTEN! It is so cute. *whimper* I'm not sure tossing it at me will work, I'm afraid.
Anna S.eliade on June 16th, 2005 06:34 am (UTC)
I'm not actually posting tonight as it turns out, and on the off chance that you were seriously waiting up, I am telling you...go to bed! *kiss*
Rimau Sua Lay: house -fnarghsua_lay on June 16th, 2005 01:26 pm (UTC)
Hah! I fell asleep in front of the computer, mouse still in hand, the cursor hovering over 'reload'...

Well, this just means I have something to look forward to. I'm usually a very impatient person so this will give me a chance to grow!

:D

if i didn't have to go to MY crap job every day, i'd have time to write that movie.

i bet it would sell, too.

it's the ending that makes it.

I had my 1:1 today, too. And it's annual review time, so I am stressing.
