Having a Job is Hard

Normal start to a post of mine - sorry for not posting sooner, blah blah blah.  I am a very bad person and I have the best blogstalkers of all time.  Of ALL time.

Also, I am sorry that this is not a real post.  I am busy during the day being a very serious accountant and then busy at night looking at my wedding pictures in an effort to encourage myself to start working out again.  Because it is hard to get dressed for my new job when none of my pants fit.

But anyway.  I just wanted to share something that happened to me today.  My new manager gave me an "A for Attitude."  I KNOW.  I was dumbfounded as well.  I've really always considered myself more of a "C for Conscious" person at work. 

The good news is that when he gave me the "A" I sort of giggled nervously and then sneezed.  So I *may* have tipped him off to the fact that he had just made a grievous misjudgment.  Which means now I don't have to attempt to live up to the over-acheiving image he had of me in his mind.  Phew.

Oh and Ryan, please don't take this post to mean that I do not enjoy praise from time to time.  It would be lovely if you would remember that.  And no, saying "Oh you're taking all your Christmas candy to work to share? That's a good idea.  Then you won't eat it all in one night and complain that your pants don't fit this year," DOESN'T COUNT.

Also, I may have used your credit card to buy new pants during lunch today.  And to pay for my lunch today.  Thanks!!

(Sidenote: Can you believe that Ryan put me on his credit card account as a one year anniversary present? What.  A.  Dummy.)

  1. How ironic! The day I post your blogsite to my Facebook and force all my friends to read what I consider my favorite/the funniest blog on my reader, you post something new! Excellent!

    Yesss! I have finally done something right. Thanks for the marketing. I definitely need it. And Lord knows I'm too lazy to do it myself.

  3. Happy to see a new post.
    About working out, I'll give you a Fitocracy invite if you'd like. It's a website that makes working out fun, like a game. It depends on what kind of person you are, but it really helps get me to do it.

    Yes! Send it! LaurenRaeGallagher@gmail.com

    I'll let you know if it works. Don't get your hopes up though. My most successful recent attempt involved me laying out my shoes and gym clothes the night before, getting out of bed in the morning, tripping over the shoes, shouting "eff the gym," and going back to bed.

    And that was when I didn't have a job.

  5. Invite sent!
    My workout has mostly been just doing a few exercises at home, but I did get money for a gym membership for Christmas, so I'm gonna try to really get going now.

    Hi Lauren! Glad to see you! How was your Christmas? (I sure hope it was really nice!)

    I'll send you some of my best "fit back in your pants" juju, but don't get your hopes up, it's not really working that well lately...I keep accidentally setting people's butts on fire and stuff...

    My Christmas was just lovely, filled with the scent of fir trees and the taste of hot chocolate and marshmallow flavored vodka.

    And send that juju my way lady. I insist. Even if the fire thing happens, I'm still burning fat right?
