I had to go back to work today. I could feel my actual brain rotting inside my head, it was scaring me. I have never had this much time off at one time and I am not mature enough to enjoy it and I don’t know what to do with unstructured time. I spent yesterday at UCLA getting “counseled” and I’m absolutely sure I impressed the hell out of her with my answer of “Hmmmm, I’m not really sure, I haven’t thought about that” to almost every question she had. There is probably a big gold star in my file right now.
The problem with coming back to work today, is that almost no one is here and there isn’t much to do. So, after clearing out my inbox (by 8:11), I have been working on January plans and now, obviously, I’ve lost the plot entirely and am just ticking off the minutes until lunch. I’ve agreed to go to the Indian buffet (the real one) with the guys and they’ve agreed to answer “chicken” every time I ask them what I’m eating. Fair deal.
