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!

it’s been several hours since my last confession. i have since been ridiculed and mocked by the one blogger whose approval i desperately desire. I’m sappy, over-the-top and — even worse — ambiguous. In addition to that, I bite my nails.

All i really want is for paolo to accept me into the blogosphere with open arms. my blog was the one place i felt sanctuary from the cruel Web 2.0 world — and he’s ripped that away from me. now, here i stand, succumbing to the only tried and true tactic for winning him (and his loyal followers) back over — talking about him and raving about his greatness.

So, dear Reader, let it be known, i will repent for my sin of talking about my feelings for other people. from this day forward, i will take every judgment paolo makes as fact and i will stop wearing my heart and guilty conscience on a sleeve.

or not. but i guess i’ll try a little harder to entertain instead of preach. well, i’ll at least consider it.

twenty nine: jeanna.
