Who’s idea was it to put July 4th in the middle of the week… and then give us that day off instead of tacking it onto the weekend somewhere? It’s not even 2 o’clock on Tuesday and I have a hunch I may or may not be one of the only employees still in the office. And if my boss is reading this… well, I’m sorry but there is literally nothing better for me to be doing right now than writing this.
I work at one of those places where the amount of work you get done is less important than being a warm body in a chair for 8 hours a day. Which gives me little incentive to be extra productive… I mean, I definitely get my work done, but I don’t really ever have to put it into overdrive. And I like overdrive. It makes me feel productive. I kind of miss overdrive, to be honest.
What do I do, you may ask? I work in the marketing department of a legal software company… so, it’s lawyers and software combined into a giant party of marketing goodness. Actually that may be a stretch. But I do like it. It’s interesting (usually much more interesting than right now, anyway), and I really like the people I work with.
But right now I want to go home and get my 4th of July kicked off! Which is hopefully going to involve lots of quality time with The BF, my dog, and some mountains. And also hopefully some tasty lemon bars and several ears of corn on the cob (Paleo cheats are allowed on America’s birthday).
What are you doing for the 4th?
