You know, it’s pretty hard to surpass ABBA in sheer joy to be found from listening to their songs. Even when I’ve had the day I had, starting it especially having been awake from midnight to 4am, well, who knew I’d be blasting ABBA’s Mamma Mia and Super Trouper at the end of same said day? Because really, things definitely have gotten a lot more interesting. Why? Well, I’m certainly not feeling all that much better, cold-wise. Eck. But other stuff happened: we finally worked out what had happened in the application deployment last night so we will be able to (after I beg and plead with the powers that be) correct that and make things good again! Yay! Then I heard from my Dad, which is always a good thing, and they’re close to San Antonio again. I got home a little earlier than normal today because I just was NOT going to work out today as working out while sick = retardation. Then I got to watch a lot of Angel Season 2 and Project Runway (LOVED that they brought back the auf’d contestants from this season to pair up with the remaining ones)….but that all led up to quite the surprise: Turns out my Reality TV writings and posts may have not been for nothing after all! I can’t remember off-hand if I mentioned it here in these posts, but I submitted a ‘resume’ of my work to RealityNewsOnline.com, as they were asking for writers for Big Brother 10. Well, that was a month or so ago and I never heard anything more. I figured it had been a crazy idea in the first place, but you have to apply, right? Well, guess what? I got an email tonight from the editor of the site and he wants to talk about me writing something for the site! HELLS YEAH. It doesn’t pay, but who cares? I just want to write. This could be so cool. Anyways, I’m going to sleep quite well tonight. Happiness + Alka-Seltzer Plus COLD = AWESOME.
I am in the midst of a crappy cold and one of the busiest, most stressful days I’ve had at work in a long time. Literally had meeting after meeting, and frequently I got to be the featured player in them. I just can’t say how much that makes me happy. This is all on top of me having to had stayed up till 4 am this morning…for work. I got about 3 hours of sleep so on top of being sick, I’ve got barely any sleep. And the thing I stayed up that late for work for? Didn’t work. And I’m even now on a damn teleconference trying to resolve it.
But you know what, that goes with the territory, I suppose. And it’s why I got such a kick-ass raise! Or at least, that’s what I’m telling myself. But that is more than likely the main reason I am okay busting my ass, because I’m getting paid to and once it’s resolved, well, it’ll be worth it.
In the non-work stuff, it’s been a lot of fun just being with Larry every weekend. We manage to have a blast and surprisingly (for me), he hasn’t tried to kill me nor I him. And let me tell you, that means something special. 🙂
Enough updates for now – I’ll elaborate as the mood hits and I get some rest.
