I'm having a bit of a Day. Not a bad day, necessarily. But not really a good day either. The politics in my office annoy and disturb me. Things get passed to me to do that I have nothing to do with, other things that I am working on get sent out by other people, and I get criticized for responsing to a request with a specific "I" pronoun rather than the more general, non-specific "we." Whatever.
Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat... Well, you would too if you saw all the food and candy and snacks that come into the office at this time of year. Luckily, a lot of it is really rich stuff that I have no interest in. Now, when they start tossing out the m&ms, that's when I get into trouble.
Oh! and I got an email today, out of the blue, from an old friend from high school! I haven't spoken to her in ages, and hopefully we'll get together over the holidays... I can see it now: we'll meet for drinks, I'll say a little about what I'm doing, and she'll spend the rest of the evening telling me about her problems with her boyfriend, his family, her family, work, school, friends, etc. etc. She's a sweet and wonderful person, but I have to admit, part of the reason I dropped out of touch for a while was because I just don't have the energy, not to mind medical degree! to be her psychiatrist. Grrr. Argh.
