50th Post

Some people are designed for early starts (the girl in the adjacent cubicle for example started at 7am but had been at work since 6am because it was… and I quote "So great! I love it!"). I am not one of those people. So here I sit in my cubicle farm with a cup of coffee and a chocolate muffin. Sorry Darian I know it is against our diet but it had to be done! And it was awesome! Speaking of diet… I watched a new reality TV show the other night called Dance your Ass Off. Random observation: "Reality TV" is an oxymoron kind of like "Fun Cancer". If you have ever seen the TV series Becker with Ted Danson he says that "Reality TV is the worlds petrie dish where we grow our idiots" and this program is no exception. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it but it was rediculous. I would recommend it for it's lava-lamp qualities (sorry about the abstract Simpson's reference).
It is lunch time now and I have to say I am feeling better than I did this morning. Not having much luck on the sales front but at least I don't feel like curling up under my desk with my doona pretending the world isn't here. Possible reasons for this change of heart: Copius amount of coffee consumed... proximity to home time… the fact that Darian is at home waiting for me?
All good!
I received the following email from Darian's sister and I wanted to share:

  1. Coffee and chocolate muffin, diet be damned.
    I am having a red wine with my dinner.
    Breakfast sets you up for the rest of the day, while chocolate muffin may not give the protein and carbohydates you may need to carry your body through the day. It does give you the chocolate love that stops you from killing a co-worker that says "I love being here." My response is generally "Do some *&^% work then.."

    Eat, Pray, Love. Doesn't have to be in that order.

  2. Moley... Wiser words have not graced my page!
