D’Oh!

29 Jun

If I was a character on The Simpsons (and didn’t wear glasses), this is what I’d look like. At least that’s what the web site for the upcoming Simpsons movie thinks. Try it for yourself: go to SimpsonsMovie.com and click on “Create Your Simpsons Avatar.”

(Barely) Working for the Weekend

29 Jun

Today is one of those days.

It’s Friday, the end of the cycle for the monthly magazine I work on, the last day before a “holiday week,” and while there are a few pesky things on my to-do list, I’m not so busy that I’m feeling overwhelmed.

Usually it’s busier weeks when I’m more productive; when there’s not as much to do, I tend to do it at a slower pace.

Somewhere, there are folks already lined up to buy their iPhones. I sort of wish I was with them — I so want one — but I think I’m going to hold off on buying one for a bit, if I can.

I’m feeling lazy today. I’m easily distracted. The office is quiet and it’s making me more antsy.

I’ve got big weekend plans and I can’t wait.

As the song goes, I don’t want to work, I just want to bang on the drum all day.

Is it 5:00 yet?
