1. Compliments at work: I got a couple of comments this week (Wednesday during the day and Thursday evening) that really made me happy to be at my job. Won't say what they are on here, but they were very good to hear from the people who said them. I really enjoy working on the news desk, on my current position and I'm pretty impressed by my new desk, too. Brighter. More room. Bigger TV. Easier to do training. Quieter when I need it to be. Louder when it's interesting. And folks have jokes for days! More cool people moved downstairs to my floor. Great atmosphere. Cool neighbors. And I was proud of myself for completing the desk switch, and hooking up both computers and phones without electrocuting myself. Been in a good mood all this week at work from Sunday (6/24) and so on. Most folks are happy to get a good day at work. I had a week's worth!
2. Co-worker chewing-while-eating impersonation: There's no way I can describe it by blog to make it funny, but I went to lunch on Tuesday with one of my work buddies and the impersonations she was doing of a date had me in tears. Won't say her name or what the impersonation was and definitely not the date's name, but I'm still cracking up about it and can totally relate.
3. "Think Like a Man" sequel:
I loved this movie so much I saw it twice in 24 hours, read the book immediately, still remember how much I enjoyed my interview with Steve Harvey
and I couldn't be more elated to find out about this article
. 4. My new canvas paintings: I needed something to make my living room "pop" with the new couch so I bought two paintings today. They look pretty slick and finally bring out the brown. I love them. I just keep staring at the set-up. 5. Thursday's news: Anybody who watched the news on Thursday can probably guess what I'm talking about. Best decision times two!
The other issue was a distraction that disgusted me, but it is what it is. I just left CNN and MSNBC on all day to keep track of both issues. I have plenty of opinions on both topics, but you already know I won't say more than the basics on a public forum. Still had a huge smile for one though!
