Hi, My Name is 2009

So I survived the holidays--barely--and now I'm back, well-rested and ready to sling more words at the internet. It's Monday and time to return to...well, nothing except Mama's Family reruns and meals poured from a cardboard box, because I don't have a job. BUT the bloggery will resume today and I'll be stapling another entry in the unending "Days of FAIL" series to this site before the rest of you swipe an orphaned bagel from the breakroom and head home for the day.*

This morning I'm off to a yoga class because I'm determined to spend more time in Oh Nine both stretching** and putting my face dangerously close to unsanitized floor coverings.

Hope everyone had a swell [insert various December holidays here] and that your New Year isn't close to sucking yet.

* Offer only valid for those of you working in the continental United States. Sorry, readers in Great Britain, Europe, and other countries I vaguely remember from playing "Carmen San Diego". You guys are better than halfway through your workdays now and ready to go home and speak with delightful accents to your rosy-cheeked loved ones. Check back tomorrow.
** Apparently, it's good for runners to stretch. I realized this a few days ago when mid-run I thought I had a rock in my shoe, but it turned out to be my Achilles tendon.

As I sit here at home, instructed by my department to wait by the phone as today we are facing 60% lay offs, I'm not thinking my New Year is starting off so well.

Yeah, I really should stretch more but I'm going to have to do that on my own because everyone knows that yoga is for women only.

Me and my Canadian accent still have half a work day left to go. The promise of more blogging from you is what is getting me through the day. You hear that, J-Money? You better make it good! No pressure, though.

I've been at work for 2 hours, and I'm already ready to go home. My happy place on the couch is calling my name.

I'm halfway through my day and all I can say (in a delightful Southern accent) is "IS IT 4:30 YET?????"

Happy New year! I'm also kicking off the year unemployed. Weee!

Tom said...

If yoga is just stretching, why the hell was I so sore afterwords?

Oh wait, because I'm not in shape? But you might be better prepared to tackle it.

Ahhh! Finally, a fellow unemployed blogger. Would you care to get a drink?

OH MY GOSH! I'm an idiot! I just figured out why in my world I haven't seen a blog post from you since November. DAMN! I got a lot of catching up to do. Guess I'll just write today off for getting anything done.

Less than two hours 'til I'm home from work, and no bagel today. Though a town board member did walk through the office offering cookies and brownies sprinkled with election solicitation many months in advance.
