Work blah blah Pink Flamingos

Ugh. Work has been a little much this week. And wasn't it just last week that I was saying that I was in an I'm-so-bored-at-work-I-can't-stand-it mode? Yes, well, the work gods heard me, and laughed. An example: I have a quarterly report that I have to submit to our corporate office. Each quarter it ends up being fifteen or twenty pages of blah blah blah, here's what I've been doing this quarter, blah, blah, blah. This quarter? One hundred and thirty three pages. One. Three. Three. And it's not that I've been particularly busy this quarter, it's that corporate has decided that my word isn't quite enough, that I need to provide four different kinds of documentation. Why have one when you can have four? It's madness.
So we had a little earthquake yesterday, which is always a hoot. I actually noticed the water in my giant plastic mug shaking before I felt it, and then I dove for the doorway. For those of you not living in Cali, that is what you're supposed to do...hide under your desk or get in a doorway, and sadly, there is so much crap under my desk that I don't think I could fit under there. It passed in about twenty seconds, and all went back to normal. Is it weird that sometimes I wish those things were a little more dramatic, so that we would just have to go home, or at least have an interruption to the workday? I mean, don't get me wrong, I don't welcome a natural disaster or anything quite that extreme, but any reason I can find to go home and lie on the couch and watch bad afternoon TV (or these days, catch up on the ten gazilllion things that have piled up on my DVR) is okay with me.
I saw the fabulous new John Waters film this weekend. It's not like he ever deviates from his formula, but it never fails to delight me. If you've never seen any of his earlier work (yes, earlier than Hairspray), you'd do well to seek them out. Pink Flamingos is particularly good. And when I say "good", I mean so incredibly bad and naughty and awful, that it's good. You know what I'm saying.
Yeah, this entry has been absolutely fascinating. That is totally the kind of week that I am having, so I shall bid you goodbye. Perhaps I'll have a super fantastic Thursday, and will write to tell you allllll about it.
