Finest Worksong

Sorry for the delay in any postings. It's been one of those days. Or two. Possibly even three.

Yes, I've been on the road - working. And as usual, I've been in DC. But worse, I've been staying out in Tysons, which is in Northern Virgina. More corporate headquarters and malls than you can shake a stick at.

My days have been non-stop, but at least they seem to have been productive. Well, this afternoon I took a 2 hour nap. Not productive in the big sense, but apparently I needed it.

I'm staying in DC for the weekend. Denton is/has joined me. Rebecca and her husband are here too - which is fun. Denton and I will do some touristy things, I'm sure - Rebecca will get ready for her reading at Politics & Prose. Naturally, we will be attending.

I had dinner with the couple last night and lunch with the world-famous author today. I ate, she had a lemonade. We froze. The temp outside must have dropped 15 degrees in 10 minutes as we sat outside.

The big re-org announcements regarding the acquistion of our company are beginning on Monday. I'm not sure how I feel - as I peak and valley a few times per week. This is better than a few times per day than I had been, but right now I'm valley-ing. The Big Valley (starring Miss Barbara Stanwyk). There are too many unknowns and what-ifs. There are too many scenarios of, 'I cannot report to x, y or z and remain sane'.

After my last job go-around, I know there are no certanties. I thought I could deal with this better having done it before - but today.....right now.....I'm floundering a bit.

At least I have Becky, Andrew and Denton to distract me this weekend. And alcohol. I'm going out now and getting drunk. Wish me luck.
