So….despite many distractions over the past couple of days back at the office, I was able to get a surprisingly large amount of work done. When I arrived yesterday, I didn’t think I was going to make it. After all, last week was only a three day work week, most of which was spent traveling, and the rest was spent trying to find things to do. Although it has been a joy to be working from Jersey this week, having to deal with The Man over the phone seventeen times a day is no fun. Especially when you have to figure out his travel plans for him.
As per my travel plans, I decided to give the Acela a whirl on Sunday. Yes…for those who hounded me about my mispronounciation of it before, I now realize that it is said ‘A-cell-a’ as in ‘accelleration’ and not ‘ass-el-a’ as in ‘what an ass i am for not realizing that in the first place’. What do you want from me? I am the same guy who it took a couple hours to realize what the significance of the crystal apple sent to us by my company in memoriam for 9/11 was….Yes, I kept saying, “why did they send a heart, and why does it have a stem?” In some areas, I may be brilliant, but admittedly, in others, I can be a little slow. I guess that is the price you pay for genius.
Overall….2002 is turning out to be a very good year.
