Water Torture

I think that my employer is trying to kill me today - literally. A new phenomenon has happened in my area... the top of my cubicle is making a noise that sounds like water is dripping on top of the storage bin... A. Slow. Steady. Drip. Drip. Drip.

If it wasn't making my head hurt - it might make me need to go use the restroom. There is no leak... no water.... I have no idea what is making that noise... but it might just drive me completely bonkers!

On top of that fun... our meeting today involved a full hour of hurricane preparedness training... seriously. I know it was important, but I'm not kidding you when I say that my eyes glazed over at one point and I might have been day dreaming. Where is a Sonic Iced Tea when you need one?

The one outstanding portion of the meeting was the presentation by the Vice President that manages the community centers. It was basically a pictorial slide show of activities going on in our organization throughout the area - but it was set to the song "Eye of the Tiger" which I personally LOVE and use as my own anthem all the time.

Besides the hurricane plan and the new training schedule... which I just found out that I might have to teach part of it for my department's portion. (Kill me now) The meeting overall wasn't that bad... and it ended an hour early - BONUS! I love it when the agenda turns out to be short. Insert Kim's internal happy dance here!

I'm now putting on the headphones and iPod to retreat into a stimulating afternoon of data entry... come on girls - you know that you wish you had my job! It could be a lot worse - over the years I have been assigned some projects that make drug rehab sound like a fun time... but it could be a lot worse. At least I can do it all while getting an energy boost from my favorite music.

If you haven't read the Q&A answers this week - you simply must. I am a lucky lady friends, and my husband pulled out all the stops when answering his one question this week. Go here to read the post.


  1. I wish I could listen to my tunes at work! I am jealous! Chinese water torture...ahhhh!!! That is crazy! You so silly...

  2. Even when I put my ipod to my speaker thingy at work, someone will come into my office and want to gab. Makes me insane!

  3. It makes me wonder, do you have to do anything special with hurricane warnings? pack up all the files and carry them north? cover the windows with tape?

    I don't know that there is much that can be done, other than having repair crews nearby like we did for Ike.


Thank you so much for your comments. I really enjoy getting feedback on my writing!
