Today is not my Friend.

Today is one of those days you just want to cry and wallow in self-pity.  If one more person says anything to me about "living in the moment" or "life is too short" or you don't get yesterday back, or anything along those lines, well,  I'm going to lose it.  Seriously, like I don't wake up and go to bed thinking about my depleting mortality and how I'm going to beat it.  Please... 

I think we all have that one person we're forced to work with whom we loathe.  I have a few of these, but one in particular drives me CRAZY.  It's like she settles in and fires off email after email for sport- all of which I just want to provide answers to (and I DON'T answer to her, by the way) just to get it out of my mail box.  I am compelled to squash this woman's insistence on demanding answers to things she's not entitled to.  We are cordial, but we do not like each other.  We would never be friends and I will never voluntarily go that "extra mile" for her.  Ever.  Of course she works in the tech field...It seems this particular field is far more prolific in the birthing of those with entitlement issues in the name of creativity and camaraderie.  Seriously, a free stocked food pantry and foo-foo beverages is not a right; respect the privilege.  Barf.

I have now missed my opportunity to go to lunch since half of my staff is out sick.  My fingers have been so frantic typing all morning, they actually feel like they are cramping.  At this point with my work load far exceeding any possible completion possibility, I sit at my desk in my office listening to movie soundtracks on Pandora, bitching via blog and watching my neighboring building tenants running to manage their own frantic lives.  Clearly I don't have the time to look out and create my own "Rear Window" like stories, but I do in an effort to survive what today has become.  Shit.

Today is a lottery buying day.  I have $4 in my wallet and you know where this is going...cross your fingers for me - I'll do the same for you  :-)
