All of the people who normally send me work were in an all-day meeting yesterday. I imagine that this will mean a greater volume of email and calls for me as today goes on, but at the moment it just means that my usually-full inter-office mailbox contained only two envelopes this morning. I am at loose ends. So much of what I have to do relies on others to complete at least one step before I am able to get started. Those steps have not yet been done. Therefore, journal updating!

It's a grey day, the third in a row, and I'm feeling it. At least, I'm blaming the weather for the daze and the distraction. It's a convenient scapegoat, and probably deserves it. If only we could get a nice storm out of it, I think that I would be much happier. (I'm talking heavy rain and maybe some thunder here. Not hurricane-force winds, you understand.)

I wish that I was a person who could get by with only a few hours of sleep. I always feel like I'm missing a lot of fun by leaving open mic when I do. Last night there was an unexpected supply of pomegranite schnapps behind the bar, and I was convinced to try a poma-rita. Tasty! Sharif was the true lab animal, though, and was given a number of brightly-colored drinks to test. He was pretty happy by the time I left.

Sigh. I'm seriously considering the nap-at-my-parents'-house approach to lunchtime today. I'm not actually terribly sleepy, but the energy level is low. It's been there for the past few days, in fact. Bah.

I wish I had a kitty at the office. Or a puppy! Or a mouse! Or . . . um . . . a turtle? You know, something cute and alive. That isn't me.

I would totally lend you one of mine... Orion likes new places to explore, and can be quite helpful in the paperweight department.

Man, that would be awesome. Silly corporate atmosphere, not allowing for the joy of kittycats.

I wish I had you at the office. But then we'd probably want to leave the office, at least after you'd met all of my cool office coworkers. That might not be most productive, but I still wish it!

Bah to productive. Yay to fun things.

Alas for distance.

Ro-missing is a sad fact of my existence.
