OK, here it is Friday afternoon, and my only post for the week is a love note to Brett Favre (did you see his press conference yesterday by the way – yep, I cried too). Not a good blogging week for me, I’m afraid.
For many little reasons, this work week has been one of those where I was spending most of my time simply trying to keep my head above water. Anyone else been there? 🙂
I know I’m in the midst of a “keep from drowning” experience when around Wednesday, something insidious starts creeping into my brain, something so 80’s, and so guilty pleasure.
It’s a little ditty from a group called Loverboy – know it?
“Everybody’s working for the weekend
Everybody wants a little romance
Everybody’s goin’ off the deep end
Everybody needs a second chance, oh”
This tune and its driving beat becomes a relentless presence in my activities on Thursday and Friday, continually teasing me with the opportunity for that “second chance” that will keep me from “goin’ off the deep end“.
I have to constantly keep from putting on a matching orange headband and shirt and grabbing a microphone, and just belting the thing out myself on top of my desk.
(Little did those guys from Canada know that they created such a musical antidote!)
So here it is, late Friday afternoon, and I finally have a few minutes to blog – and (of course) I just can’t write about anything else. I’ve gotta get it out of my system, right now!
(cue the drums………..)
“Everyone’s watchin’ to see what you will do
Everyone’s lookin’ at you, Oh
Everyone’s wonderin’ will you come out tonight
Everyone’s tryin’ to get it right, get it right”
(sound of Starbucker jumping back off his desk)
(sound of Starbucker wincing in pain)
Gosh, I hope next week is back to normal………….. 🙂
(Psst……go to the SOBCon08 blog tomorrow – we have a place to announce!)
