back in the saddle

i decided to give my brain a day to process being back at work before i blogged about it. that way i wouldnt say something stupid and get fired. oh wait... so here i am. its not so bad. keep in mind that i slept for five hours. sounds like a lot, but not as fun when they are not in a row. i have to admit that there are some nice things about being at work. i think they could be summed up in a short list like this:
1. a computer all to myself, with internet access.
2. a guaranteed shower everyday (necessary to wake up and function)
3. listening to my ipod for hours at a time

the things that arent so great go something like this:
1. miss the huffsters (not the craziness so much)
2. having to put on clothes that require ironing
3. the food table

the food table is a gross phenomena at work that fascinates me. its basically an empty desk, or the top of a filing cabinet will work quite nicely too, where people bring in whatever left over crap they have at home that they think people might eat. sounds gross huh? you might think this food would sit there for hours getting all warm under the neon tube lights, huh? well your wrong. its like a mad rush to gobble up whatever is being offered. three day old luke warm spinach dip? yum! half a birthday cake? i'll take it. heaven forbid if you get caught up in the stampede when there are donughts to be had. it could be life threatening...

on a more positive note, now that i am back at the computer i can catch up on reading blogs again. only during lunch break of course. and since my camera is still broken, i am going to take this opportunity to post some past photos for
mecozy's week of color. fun! i missed out on monday, which was yellow. tuesday is blue, and i think this is my favorite blue picture, courtesy of toby.

I think the food table sounds awesome. Are you an "old food" snob like Clark? :) I wouldn't eat it either. Sounds worse than you have even described actually.

It's funny how any kind of food at work is so tempting. I find myself eating all kinds of junk that I wouldn't touch at home.

I love your blue and yellow pictures! :)

I love the one of the little chicks! I'm glad you're back. Going back to work is not easy. Imagine...my job is teaching 3-4 year olds...no down time! I'm jealous of your ipod and internet access!

Here I am counting down the days until my maternity leave, but I'm dreading going back once those days are up. You seem to have made the transition well.

when i worked at devry - we totally had the food tables. and it was frightening to see a bunch of educated adults with good paying jobs devouring food like they were poor college students. and yeah - donut days were always the most dangerous.

good to hear about hannah-world again. :)
