I can't believe I actually typed it, but for once its true. I love my day job. Sure, I'd quit in a heartbeat if I got the book deal of the century, but as long as I have to live a double life, I'm pretty content with my situation.
This is a pretty big turn around over the last few months. We've had layoffs. I've picked up a ton of work that I'm not 100% certain how to do. Some days walking into the building was as depressing as walking into a funeral home. Not exactly fun. For the most part, I think the layoffs are behind us and things are settling down. While I'm very busy, I'm trying to make the most of my situation and my boss and coworkers are a big part of that.
I work with the coolest people ever. Why, you ask? Because we're all leaving work in the middle of the day today to go see Twilight: New Moon. (Just ignore that groan from PC in the corner, there.) My coworkers have gotten into Twilight over the last year - without my help, I might add - and when the movie tickets went on sale, they asked if I wanted to go with them. So, we got the swanky VIP seats in the adults only section for the 11AM showing today.
Not just any boss will let you take a 3 hour lunch to see a movie and even fewer bosses will actually be in the seat next to you sharing her popcorn. Like I said, coolest people ever.
So, what about you? Are you going to see New Moon? Are you excited for another movie to come out over the holidays?
P.S. And a happy birthday to Birdzilla! Maybe Instigator will let you get that alpaca. :)
