First of all, snow! OMFG! Snow! Everyone run immediately to the grocery store and the gas station because lord knows we can't exist without a great big glass of milk, a loaf of bread and two tons of toilet paper in case the bread and milk give us the runs during the sprinkles of snow.
I'm supposed to be in Vegas today. And yesterday. And the day before. But I'm not. Why? Because work has been running my life. I've worked every single day since the first week of October. Initially everything was to have been turned in last Friday but as usually happens with dealing with a bunch of clueless corporate fucktards, the deadline has been extended a week. So we can answer a half dozen other data calls that we'll have to do at least two more times. I love my job.
On the plus side I got invited by Group finance to the Caps game last Saturday and got to sit in the executive suite. Sweet! All the food and drink you want and if the suite doesn't have what you want, pick up a phone and call them to bring it. But seriously, as nice as it was, I like the regular company seats down with the real hockey fans.
Another plus side, a couple of days before the Saturday game, I went to a Thursday night game. Game was fan-freaking-tastic (we won with 11 seconds left) but before the game we went to Zaytinya
, a Greek/Mediterranean tapas restaurant. Awesome! I have a couple of co-worker friends who live in DC and know all the great restaurants. We're hitting Wolfgang Puck's The Source
the week before Christmas for a "we survived the last two and a half months" dinner. It'll be cool to see DC decked out for the holidays.
In spite of all the work shit, I have managed to do a lot of writing. And that leads me to a question: how much smut is too much smut for fanfiction.net? I have one fic posted that's a little graphic. This fic will be a lot graphic. Does it really matter?
Oh, and to top it all off, I used Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing lotion and had an allergic reaction. Can you say Contact Dermatitis? I'm fairly sure I've scratched my face off a couple of times and the skin around my eyes is so puffy and red, I look like I've been on a five day alcohol binge. Don't ever use Clinique. Nasty, nasty stuff.
On a happy note, ( kitties! )
