Busy, you say?

You're actually NOT that busy at work if:

  • You get to take lunch without remaining hunched over in front of your computer.
  • Your Goog Reader stays under 1000+.
  • You still update Twitter every hour.
  • You still leave work at 5pm.
  • You're on Facebook, like, at all.
  • You take personal phone calls and say anything except, "I'm too busy to talk. Can I call you back later?"
  • You haven't tried to crawl through an office window and hurl yourself out there just to avoid another meeting.
  • You keep talking about how busy you are instead of getting your shit done.
  • You have time to write blog posts about what it means to not be busy.

I've been in RFP hell this past week, so I've been ridiculously busy and even more ridiculously cranky. Now that this particular project is over, I've got, oh, an afternoon to relax before I have to move onto another one -- writing a 9,000 word guide/booklet in the next three weeks.

Suffice to say that 2009 is already kicking my ASS.

Ditto! I don't know what is going on but I've been the same kind of busy although I can't find time or any brain cells to actually blog!

I am amazed at the people who blog/tweet/facebook at work. I basically disappear from the internet until I get home.

i'm completely with you on this. i'm lucky if i read a handful of blogs during lunch (over my computer at my desk) - i can't even keep up with twitter anymore. so sick.

oh to have a non important job where i could just read blogs and play on the internet all day. alas.

I JUST returned to the internet after recuperating from my last three weeks in Los Angeles. I'm with you on this-all valid, accurate points.

ITA with you on all of this. I'm lucky if I get to Tweet at all or even open Google Reader for a personal reason.

Ringleader: Maybe this year is just cursed.

Erin: Me too. Always makes me feel totally disconnected. (How sad is that?)

Alexa: When you find that non-important job, hire me to be your non-important assistant. We'll read blogs all day together.

HP: Welcome back to the Internets!

Bayjb: Doesn't it suck?
