About a good day for elsewhere

Previous Entry a good day for elsewhere Nov. 30th, 2006 @ 10:19 am Next Entry
I am cold. I wore a knee-length skirt to work today, which appears to have been a mistake. It seems like there is an arctic breeze under my desk, chilling me from toes to hips. This isn't actually possible- there's nowhere for the airflow to originate. Doesn't stop my legs from freezing, though.

I am cold and distractable. I don't want to do work today. I have been here for an hour and forty minutes now, and I have done approximately ten minutes worth of work. The rest of the time, I have been sifting through livejournal archives or reading webcomics. I don't want people, particularly not coworkers. I want an empty house, a bathtub full of hot water, books I haven't read, a cat, some food.

I am cold and distractable and hungry. I have eaten no breakfast. I have no food. I took the last granola bar from my desk drawer yesterday. Vending machine food is available to me for a price, but I want fresh baked bread with butter or a scrambled egg sandwich or biscuits with sausage gravy.

I shall walk to the kitchen and get some hot tea.

Offices are often no good, no good at all. I am glad you have tea at least, but I wish there was a Bread Fairy who would visit you and bring you snacks. I bet she would be aerodynamically impossible like a bumblebee.

Maybe if I believe hard enough in the Bread Fairy, she will appear. I have made do with pretzel/cheese Combos for breakfast. This will keep me upright until lunchtime, but is ultimately unsatisfying.

I think that I am going to have to do some shopping for interesting tea in the near future. Oh yes, that sounds like an excellent plan.

Oh! Oh! Then I have something to distract you!

The Corduroy, which used to be called Corduroy Hips, is lovely. I am thinking I may need to order the Nic and the Coma White. Fig!

Oh my! That is dangerous and distracty! (Also lovely. I forsee moneyspending.)

You are good to me, although (indirectly) not so good to my boss.
