Good call. I'm gonna rub my temples and blink a lot like I've been concentrating too hard. Probably breathe real deep and clear my throat, just to put those around me on notice, son.

Back from my meeting...

We decided to defer until a committee can be set up to determine if we do indeed need less meetings...

We have a strategy session scheduled for tomorrow to form the committee.

You should all have a group viewing of 'Office Space'. You can take advantage of its famous duality - you know, the duality where if you've never worked in an office environment, it's hilariously funny in a ha-ha way, and if you have worked or are working in an office environment, it's hilariously funny in a sad 'I'm laughing to prevent myself from crying because it's so damn true' kind of way.

Either way, classic film.

Here's a quote from Ryan The Temp of the The Office that I live by lately:

"If I had to, I could clean out my desk in 5 seconds and nobody would know I had ever been here. And I'd forget too."

Peter Gibbons: Our high school guidance counselor used to ask us what you'd do if you had a million dollars and you didn't have to work. And invariably what you'd say was supposed to be your career. So, if you wanted to fix old cars then you're supposed to be an auto mechanic.
Samir: So what did you say?
Peter Gibbons: I never had an answer. I guess that's why I'm working at Initech.

So to all those white collar slaves, if you had to do it differently what would you rather be doing; providing that you still had to financially support yourself. Firefighter? Lumberjack? Entrepreneur? Author?

I'd do author. I think I may have the skills, but I know I don't have the discipline.

I'd do author. I think I may have the skills, but I know I don't have the discipline.

Or maybe I'd just double post for a living.

i love my field of work. but...perhaps my job doesn't fit under the typical "white collar" label. i guess i'm more business casual. i do have an office to myself though, that's kinda hot.

I have a "cubical" all to myself... although the walls aren't very high and I sit in front of the printer/fax machine so every bozo here has to walk by my desk and "borrow" my pen...

Random co-worker (looks at my picture from the U2 concert): Wow, you must really like U2, who is your favorite?
Me: I dunno, I like them all...
Co-worker: I don't really like them all that much, Bone-O is kind of annoying... I like that Ipod song...
Me:

actually no! it is frigid in here. so i open up the windows (which is apparently illegal...i'm an outlaw) and since my desk is in front of the windows all the heat comes straight to me.
