Flipflops in the Rain

i have more than three toes, but i’m definitely a sloth.

i showered today. and then i promptly put on the same sweats i’ve been wearing for three days and settled onto the couch for a hard day of work and inauguration watching.

while many of my friends and co-workers risked their lives to metro into the city for the event, i selected to stay in. by now, you’ve prolly figured out that i no likey the bitter cold.

however, i really hate working from home.

i know, “boo hoo hoo, i can work anywhere that has an internet connection; woe is me, i can stay in my jammies all day” — but seriously. i feel like a sloth. when i shut down my computer at 5, all i want to do is crawl back into bed and sleep until morning. when i finally pull myself off the couch to eat, i grab something carby and disgusting. and the working out i was bragging about last week? yeah… no. haven’t done it since. the fact that i bathed this morning (granted, it was maybe 33 seconds long) is pretty amazing.

i’m actually thoroughly looking forward to going back into the office tomorrow.

i’m even more looking forward to NOT going into the office on Thursday and flying to denver to see lyd and conebone for a long, much-needed weekend* away.

*not that my weekends here have been bad lately — just really busy. having an awesome surprise guest, meeting up with an awesome not-surprise guest, helping DR move, eating lots of pizza, battling the tourists to get to the bloggerational ball in adam’s morgan where i met many fabulous d.c. bloggers who know how to drink and dance** — i’m ready for a relaxing weekend.

**sorry guys, there’s no way i can link to everyone. i spent the better half of yesterday updating my google reader to include everyone i met — there’s no way i could add links to this post without forgetting someone. i’d rather people didn’t find out what a jerk i am just yet… it was fantastic to meet such truly funny and fun people. Thanks for a great time!


Looking forward to the office? Are you feeling okay? I mean, even given the circumstances I don’t think I’d be looking forward to that.

Even though I’m jealous in theory of your ability to work from home, I think I would feel the same way if I actually tried it for a few days. I don’t like the idea of work invading my personal space.

It was so nice to meet you the other night! 🙂

@I-66 Remember, only in the office the one day… Plus, time goes so much faster when I’m surrounded by the hustle and bustle of my coworkers. Something about my stress level being so much higher…

@NoticedfromNW That’s really a lot of it. It’s weird talking to customers from my bedroom… I think I need to invest in a desk. And yes, you too!!

I prefer to keep work at work and home stuff at home. So I totally understand.

And wow, YOU living in sweatpants? I remember telling you that you needed more “professional” clothes for the post-college world. Boy was I ever wrong!

you’re gonna have to hook me up w/ the links, pwease. Btw, I think I might only have 3 toes left after today. Totally wearing fuzzy slippers to the office tomorrow.

Your day sounds remarkably similar to mine. I did go out on my balcony for a moment or two, mainly to determine once and for all I didn’t want to head downtown and watching the inaugural on TV made a lot more sense.

Have fun on your trip.

I’m sure it was very nice to meet you, even if I was too drunk to remember. Wait, did I ask you if you were a BSG fan?

Sounds like someone is in Starbucks Wednesday withdrawal…

@WriteGal I’ve always had style.

@Pithy definitely. And you can borrow my Uggs if need be.

@Kevin Heat is nice. And thank you!

@MS Yes, actually. You were talking to PithyComments and Who Invented Roses about it, and I may or may not have crinkled my nose. So not judging though!

@Scott Sounds like YOU are in Starbucks Wednesday withdrawal. I gave you a giftcard though — use it!

So glad you came, and to have met you in person, lady! We must do it again soon…

Hi there. If you’ve got an email, I’ve got a couple of pictures of you from the Ball.

Comment by Kevin

I will one up you.

I didn’t change out of my ball dress until Tuesday AFTER work. Yep– I wore it as a shirt with jeans.

Comment by Maxie

We seriously need to work on your posting frequency.
