The Fact that the Writing Center is Closed on Fridays has NOTHING to do with it :)

I am absolutely, positively, definitely REFUSING to go to work today, so instead I bring you this classic quote from the movie Office Space

Bob Slydell
: You see, what we're trying to do is get a feeling for how people spend their time at work so if you would, would you walk us through a typical day, for you?
Peter Gibbons: Yeah.
Bob Slydell: Great.
Peter Gibbons: Well, I generally come in at least fifteen minutes late, ah, I use the side door – that way Lumbergh can't see me, heh – after that I sorta space out for an hour.
Bob Porter: Da-uh? Space out?
Peter Gibbons: Yeah, I just stare at my desk, but it looks like I'm working. I do that for probably another hour after lunch too, I'd say in a given week I probably only do about fifteen minutes of real, actual, work.

Bob Slydell: I'd like to move us right to Peter Gibbons. We had a chance to meet this young man, and boy that's just a straight shooter with upper management written all over him.

My life is rated PG-13.
What is your life rated?

Mood: Bored (be afraid, be very afraid 😉 )
Song: "9 to 5"

Today's grateful, strangely enough, is work, where I'm sitting right now typing this oh-so informative post.

I am a writing tutor at my local community college, and I couldn't be happier here. The only problem is that students keep expecting me to read their inane papers for their English classes; I mean, really! As if I had time for that with all my e-mailing, phone-calling, and blogging :)! J/K of course (in case my boss is reading this 😉 ).

I don't know what I would have done without this job during the time when I was composing my thesis (now available in my college library-I'm published!!!!). I have time to work on my studies, and the atmosphere is relaxed.

It would only be better if Mircat worked here too 🙂 🙂 :).

N.B. 1: Notice how I did NOT use the new cover sheet for TPS reports on this posting 😛
N.B. 2: I think someone's trying to take my stapler…
