One of my favorite comedies is Office Space. If you haven't seen it before and don't mind a few f-bombs and other crude language, I would recommend it. It's just way too funny!

Today, I feel like Ron Livingston's character Peter. See above clip.

I had an extremely productive week last week. I got everything done on my "to-do" list. Even though this is only a four-day work week, I can't get motivated. I spent yesterday morning trying to hook my computer up to our projector so we could watch the inauguration speech. Unfortunately, a million other people had the same idea because the site was too slow. I moved on to trying to get a decent picture on a very small, ancient television in my boss' office. Although the reception was very bad, a group of us were able to "see" (but really just hear) the inauguration.

After that was done, it was time for lunch. After lunch, I decided that I could work ahead and then remembered that being proactive is entirely overrated! So, I messed around on Facebook, read some blogs and felt very lazy.

I had very high expectations for myself today...HAD is the key word here. It is now 11:33 and I have completed one task and read through a few emails. I am meeting a couple of friends for lunch at 12:30 so I can't get a lot accomplished in an hour. Even if I did, what would I do the rest of the day?

That is funny because I often liken myself to Michael Bolton from Office Space. (See his opening scene where he is driving to work.)

For some reason it wouldn't let me watch the video. I will have to watch that show sometime. I have days like that, too, where I don't feel like I got anything done!! I love reading your blog.

Love, Mary

You slacker! lol I have days like that too! Guess we should be thankful we have jobs where we can slack every once and awhile!

Okay, talk about f-bombs, the funniest part of that show is where the Michael Bolton guys is trying to get something to print - he's a computer guy and he goes, "PC Load Letter, what the f--- does that mean?" It is so hysterical, I laugh until I have tears rolling every time I see it. Ah, what a tribute to my secretary days. Yeah, this week has been the worst for me in terms of working out. I am getting a lot of work done - and hearding kids - but NO motivation to work out. Ahhhhhhh. And since that's my job, I guess I'm slacking on the job too.
