If you were to ask me right now what I want most in the world, my answer would not be any of the following options:
- World peace
- Stable economy
- Food for all the starving children in Africa
My answer would be: A fresh, still-steaming Double Double, extra large side of fries, and a strawberry milkshake from In-N-Out. I’m a shallow, hollow person on the inside, but dang it if a hot meal from In-N-Out doesn’t sound like it would take care of all my problems right now.
I am sitting here slightly dazed from two consecutive long days at work. I stayed an hour late on Tuesday (no big deal, really) but I didn’t leave work until almost 7 PM last night and I’m plumb exhausted (I know for certain that there’s a lawyer over on the East coast who’s snorting in derision over my namby-pamby reaction to working late). Wes has had to cook dinner two nights in a row and I wish my conscience would allow me to ask him to cook dinner for a third night.
I’m so tired right now I can’t fix my hair. My ponytail is rumpled, wispy, and sticking out all over the place. How can I be expected to cook dinner if I can’t even do my hair???
In light of my fatigue, and the fact that I was so busy this week that I didn’t even have time to scour the Internets looking for promising Things That Do Not Suck candidates, I’m going a little closer to home this week. This week’s Thing is: my work blog.
It looks exactly the same as it used to. There are no new pictures, I haven’t changed the formatting, nothing about my work blog is different at all. That’s why I’ve been working so hard this week: to make sure the blog didn’t change at all.
We migrated it to a different server and installed a different version of the CMS we use, which meant that all our data had to transfer over from the old blog to the new one. As so often happens with this kind of thing, almost everything that could go wrong did go wrong and after a week of brain-intensive work it’s now exactly the same way it used to be.
If you want to see the object of my blood, sweat, and tears you’re welcome to hop over and take a look.
And now a poll, because I love them and think they’re fun:
