I Think My Ass Is Numb; aka Paperless Has Made My Office Chair Cry

We have a new process at work. We are now paperless. Woot, Woot!

Why "woot, woot!" you say? It means that everything I need is accessible from my computer. When I make Journal Entries, there is no getting up to get the print-outs. When I need to research an invoice or line item? I don't get up, because it is all stored electronically.

I have been pushing for this since I started and just a couple of months ago, it was approved and just recently implemented.

And now? My ass and feet are perpetually numb. Because I never get up. Unless it is to chitchat. Which looks kinda bad, but I figure at this point, medically necessary. At least, that's what I tell my boss.

So I need some ideas on why to exit my seat. I can drink more water and pee more, but after awhile? All that peeing gets lame.

Do any of you have any ideas?

I'm Bored


Something is missing. That sparks, that interest. Something.

Mostly, I feel it at work. The various tasks I do are non-challenging. Difficult, but uninteresting. I plod along. Dragging ass most days.

It is like there is a missing flavor. Life tastes bland. The missing flavor is no pride in my work.

This is dangerous time for me. I need to get myself back into action, because when I get like this, I end up making mistakes and that compounds my displeasure in these tasks causing a shitty snowball effect.

These times are what make me think I may have a disease, like ADD. Focusing right now is the most difficult task I could undertake.

Or to make it seem romantic - I think I will start telling people, I have ennui. A pretty french word pronounced 'ahn-wee'.

All I know is what I am feeling is not new. And I know I've gotten myself out of it before. And I will again, but at what price?

It been 17 years and a Day

Since I last posted.

I. Am. A. Total. Slacker.

Actually, it is mainly because when I write I tend to expose myself. Not in the "Here's my ass. Again." way. But in the personal aspects about my life way. And lately, I've been wanting to keep some things to myself. I wanted to be selfish and not share.

But the need to write pulls at me again and I am unable to be completely silent.

So let's get back in the sadlle and ride this pony.
