"In my mind, something something..."

Today I returned to work after a sick day. I sat there, plowing through the inevitable backlog of emails, frustrated at a department decision to implement yet another major change, which means I can expect yet another interminable period of constant confusion at which I will be at the center, glad I'd updated my resume.

While I was in a funk, I checked my voice mail, jotting down each message on a pad. Suddenly there was SP's voice, singing "Video Killed the Radio Star."

Sometimes, you need that. You need a little SP singing off-key, forgetting the words, on your voice mail. Just because.

I love that song! Maybe I could give SP my number too and he could sing that on my voicemail. There are definitely days I could use something like that.

:)

it sucks when you don't like your job. I'm sorry. I am in the same rowboat.

Hey, KB!

I asked my cop neighbor if he liked his job. He thought about it and said, "No. But does anybody, really?"

I think what I like lest about my job is how much of my life I can't live, the things I can't do, because it takes up all of my time. So I'm thinking about looking for a part-time job. Who knows; it could work.

email me your number, and I'll have SP call while you're at work (he's shy). Or he can send you am email about a theory that Jesus had tuberculosis. SP keeps my days interesting.
