The sound of the Friday clock.
Slowly the second hand passes the 12
And every second seems like more...
Ha! You thought I was going to use a bad word, didn't you. No, not today. I've already been admonished today for saying ass. As in "what a dumbass" when the decorator painted the people's house purple on HGTV this morning. They didn't like it. I didn't like it. Sydney? She liked it.
I'm just waiting for the day to be over. I have plenty of stuff to keep me busy and hopefully, at least some of it will be mentally stimulating. All these weeks I've been waiting for my boss's presentation to be over so we could rest for a few days and now we've done everything we can. The rest is up to him. So now I can finally take a half hour and clear off my desk. Do a little filing. And, a little dusting. It's way past time.
On a side note, I have finally broken all ties to Martha Stewart. Yesterday, I sold her stock...stock that I lost my shirt on. Thank goodness I didn't let her lose very much of my money. Who knew that she'd come out of jail worse than when she went in??? Isn't pennance supposed to make people better? I mean, she changed her format to the one thing she can't do. She tried to run a talk show. And, she CAN'T TALK TO PEOPLE!
I held that stock for years, hoping that it would go up. Thinking that I couldn't afford to sell it. But, yesterday, I cut my losses. And, what did I buy? I bought into a company that makes parts for those huge windmills for windfarms. That's much more in line with my priorities today.
So, farewell Martha. Here's your ring back. The engagement is over. You should have seen it coming when I recycled 5 years worth of back issues of Living. Oh, and take my feedback. You did better talking at people than you ever will talking to them. Stick with what you know, girl!
p.s. if Martha leaves feedback like Emilie did, I'm gonna just die. Sink right into the ground like that building in Guatamala.
