Blah blah blah. I'm working. It's January, and it's our busiest time of the year, and I'm working. I have four articles that ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY MUST BE DONE by Tuesday (and yes, the yelling was necessary), and I finished one today. One.
So why am I blogging?
Beats the heck out of me. Most likely, because I feel like I would be cheating you if I didn't have at least one OH MY GOSH, IT IS JANUARY rant on my blog (yelling not necessary, but it's kind of fun to type with the caps lock on).
Also, I'm blogging because the boss called me yesterday... on a Saturday... to say in his most cheerful voice, "Hey! Wanna go to Vegas?"
1. Of course I do!
2. I knew this was coming.
3. Darn it, I don't have time for this!
That conference that I presented at in New Orleans two years ago is happening again at the end of March in Las Vegas (Wow, that is a grammatical mess.). And even though programming has been moving along swimmingly, and I have almost nothing to do with this particular topic in my normal working life, I had a feeling I was going to get sucked in at some point. The point came on Saturday. According to my cell phone log, it came at 11:53 a.m. on Saturday.
So now, in the midst of all the other January fun, I need to think about putting together a one hour program on using LinkedIn, along with interviewing a couple of other people on the subject and figuring out which ones want to come to Vegas with me to sit on a panel. The boss is going to pick up some of the slack on that one, since I'm about to have a nervous breakdown.
In the first six weeks of January, our office will produce five magazine issues, three e-newsletters, a visitors guide and an association directory. I will be involved in everything except one magazine and the visitors guide. There's a small chance I could get out of the association directory, but I'm not counting any chickens.
Probably because my blog is all about bunnies. Exhibit A:
Ahem. Anywho, to sum up: I'm busy. It's January. Thank goodness for wine. And in two months, I will be in Vegas for two days, home for five days and then off to Orlando for four days. That will require vodka.
