What about Wednesday…

So today is a little odd in that today is Wednesday.  But it strangely feels like Tuesday since Monday was a holiday.  On top of that, my wonderful and gracious employer has decided to let the management team wear blue jeans everyday.  This usually happen on Fridays.  So in my mind, it is Tuesday and I am walking around a little paranoid since I am wearing blue jeans.  I see an upper-level manager and cringe and hope I don’t get a write up.  It is just due to habit. 
So today feels like Tuesday and Friday, but it is surely Wednesday.  But there is no practice tonight, further making it feel un-Wednesday. 
I’m sure all of this will pass in a couple of days, but until then, I guess I am just walking on senseless pins and needles. 


Welcome to the Clock!!

Today is an interesting one…

At work, things are a little laid back. Hell, there a lot laid back. So far no students fussing about anything or parents calling to harass us. No departmental disruptions from other departments. Just a good day to be at work. Sure there is plenty of work to do, but it isn’t in a tizzy with forty-three other things or people coming at you. Just one or two things at a time. In days passed, work has been more than intolerable. I haven’t entertained quitting, but I have thought about asking if I can come in a work from like 2 p.m. to about 9 p.m. just so I didn’t have to deal with the drama. I digress.

So this morning, for whatever reason, I have felt like speaking in an accent. Now, usually it is a British accent that I choose, but today is different. Today it is an actual person not a stereo-type. Who? The one…. The only…Sean Connery!!! Why? Crap, I don’t know. It just locked in on me today. Hunted me down like a dog in the wilderness. Hmm?

Anyway. I’ve been off-and-on with the accent. I’ve had a blast. I even called my mom and talked to her in the Sir Sean voice. Even my own mother didn’t understand why?!?!? Booooohoooo hooohoohoo
Well, today has definitely a work-a-holic day. Between the Birthday lunch for a co-worker and an hour for lunch…it’s been great!!!

Tomorrow will be Friday. The seventh of December. You know what that means???? National Remembrance of Pearl Harbor Day…shake a Veteran. Oh, no!! Shake their hand, or gently pat them on the back. Hell, maybe just say thanks, but be sure not to sneak up on them. Some of those guys and gals get a little shaken up so take it easy.

Name your band

Work has been so busy that there has been no time for gallivanting online, using the restroom, taking a lunch, or more importantly getting on myspace.com. So in view of this, the post you are about to read will be a reflection of the work load.

There is this guy I know. We work together @ the University. His name…well, we’ll call him Buck.

So we were chatting briefly between running reports, filing, processing loans, and getting coffee.

If either of us had a band what are some names we could name it. I mean, sure you could call it “your first and last name” band (i.e. The Dave Matthew Band or The Robbie Seay Band). Yeah, because that is creative. But what if you wanted to step away from mainstream. My thought? You could use the names of soap operas or other TV shows and fit your name in somewhere…

For example:

One Buck to Live
As the Buck Turns
General Buck
The Buck and the Restless (or just for fun The Buck and the Restofus)
Buck of our Lives

Or other TV shows that don’t really air much anymore
Melrose Buck
Buck P.I.
The Buck Team
The Incredible Buck
Buck’s Company
Buck’s Angels
N.Y.P.D. Buck

You try it with your name.

Well, you get the idea. I thought it was blog-worthy. Maybe not.
