Happy Valentine’s Day all you Hallmark shareholders out there. I completely missed the fact that it was Ash Wednesday yesterday, even though I saw some ashes on the floor of the building I work in. Not sure if it was a coincidence or not. It’s been a while since I had my forehead smeared, but I don’t recall the ashes falling off on the floor. So I guess that must mean it’s Lent now. I’m not sure what to give up, so I’m thinking of maybe just giving up in general. Kind of a 40-day nap. Goodness knows I could use it.
Things at work are a strange combination of stressful, hectic, and boring. The only bright side is that, since my BlackBerry is acting up on me, I’m supposed to be getting an iPhone as a replacement. So now I get to be one of the cool kids (except I’d rather have a ‘Droid, but that’s not actually an option unless I want to get them to spring for more money which, times being what they are, I don’t think would be a good idea).
I say I’m supposed to get a new phone because it was supposed to be “today or tomorrow” on Monday, and I haven’t seen it yet. And if I don’t get it today, I won’t be back in the office until Monday. Not that I’m really in a hurry, but it’s kind of nice when working from home if the phone doesn’t just boink off in the middle of a work-related conversation. Since I don’t have a land line, that’s pretty much my only option.
Oh well, back to work.
