Well, first I panicked.
Yesterday, I had driven all the way to the Hood where I work in order to make sure that my PC was up and running and to pick up some notes. Later that night, when I tried to log on to my work PC, I couldn’t! Disaster!
Something must have happened. Nothing short of rebooting the computer would work. Rebooting that required a person physically turning on and off my computer.
The snow actually didn’t look all that bad in the morning, but it looked so cold and windy! I didn’t particularly want to go out and clean the snow nor drive into the Hood. Driving in the Hood after a snowstorm is like… well, driving an obstacle course. I’m not sure if they do snow removal at all.
Fortunately for me, I had an easy schedule and no hard deadlines. Unfortunately for me, I had a Go-Live scheduled with a 1PM conference call. Which meant I couldn’t just take the whole day off! Fortunately for me again, a friend made it to work and was able to re-boot my PC!!!
Now the upside of the snowstorm comes in. I have been working for the last few hours, on my couch, still in my pjs with a nice cup of java and with my favorite channel in the background, FoodNetwork. I’m getting some serious backlog work completed AND getting some cool new recipe ideas!
I have even learned something new. Apparently guacamole is NOT pronounced with a hard “g”! Either it is silent or it is pronounces like a “w”? And did you know that Bobby Flay is married? It must be a recent thing because I swear he was a bachelor!
This is how I should work everyday!!! If only!
