I am not great at sitting around doing nothing. Don’t get me wrong – I have my moments when I become sloth-like, lounging for hours watching bad TV or cruising the web for any little tidbit that catches my interest – but these moments are rare; usually, I need to be doing something productive.
This holds especially true at work. I cannot stand to sit around doing nothing. I certainly am responsible for enough work to keep me busy 8 hours a day, and for longer than I plan on working (9.62 years and counting) but we are a technology reliant office, and when our Drives disappear, or our Computers act up, we are stuck with little to do. Well, MOST people feel that way, but not me. I instantly begin hunting around for something productive to do. There is always some morass of files, paperwork or some such that is sitting around gathering dust that needs to be reviewed and either filed correctly or purged.
Unfortunately, it does not enhance your popularity at work when most of your co-workers would love an excuse to slack for the day, and you keep pointing out all these projects you can work on with this extra time on your hands.
Guess I won’t be winning the “cool office worker of the year” award this year.
The husbear’s birthday is tomorrow, so we met up with the bff Jim in NYC this morning, then spent the day walking about, shopping, seeing a matinee performance of “Cats” , napping, then dinner, cocktails, and a nightcap or two at Posh (a favorite NYC gay bar).
We’re back in the room for the evening, but we couldn’t crash before taking a bunch of selfies in our matching Superman shirts:
LOOK! UP IN THE SKYSCRAPER!
ITS A FLOCK OF BIRDS!
IT’S A FLEET OF PLANES!
Sorry I’ve been so quiet. I want to do a post about my trip to Pittsburgh and meet-up with (ex?) blogger David, but I wanted to wait until some grey clouds had passed before I shared the fun with all of you, which I will explain more when I post.
In the meantime, I’m still out here, behind the scenes, keeping up on your blogs weekly, if not daily.
Thanks for your patience.
We had planned a trip to Canada this long holiday weekend with my BFF Jim and his hubby to visit a mutual friend, but those plans fell through. With vacation time already approved and our long weekend free, we decided to take advantage of this fortuitous opportunity to take a road trip that was a long time in coming: Visiting Pittsburgh, PA to visit long time Blogger (ex – blogger, for now) and Facebook friend, Dave, formerly of “Facing Traffic” (nee “Another Mile Marker” and “This Exit Only”).
We arrived last night, and Dave met us at our hotel, where we shared a long overdue hug, then headed out for a bite to eat and cocktail (of course.) The pic above was taken last night at a spot near the place we ate.
Today we have a day of “about town” planned, and I’m looking forward to spending more time with Dave and getting to know a friend-I-feel-like-I-already-know. (A feeling bloggers who meet other bloggers know very well.) As a bonus, Robin, a friend of David’s and soon-to-be friend of ours, is joining us.
We’re starting the month off with a road trip. Where are we going? Who are we meeting? Stay tuned.
I’ve been busy. Work is stressful (9.67 years to retirement) and I’ve been trying to get back to better eating and regular exercise. Until I can post properly, here’s a pic of my two angels sleeping…these guys are a always a ray of sunshine in the stormiest of skies.
I just purchased this at my comic shop

I’m home from the cape. It was a nice weekend. Beautiful weather. Great cocktails. Fun shopping and people watching. Ptown is definitely my home away from home. I can’t wait to go back with Jeffrey in October for our 17th wedding anniversary.
Still, no matter how great the cape is, (or anywhere, for that matter,) I am always happy to come home and see my precious pets again.
If only I could find a way for us all to live there together.
