Manic Monday #6 (I think it's 6...I lost track)

Note to self - remove sunglasses before walking down the stairwell.  You don't want to have to explain to your coworkers that you took a header into a cement wall because you want to maintain that veil of mystery that sunglasses provide...

Someone asked me how it was outside and I said, "When I walked outside I felt like a solar panel; the sun seemed to charge me right up."  When it was pointed out that this was an odd analogy I said, "I could have gone with a Superman reference about Earth's yellow sun but I didn't think you'd get it."  (Turns out she wouldn't have an appreciated the solar panel comment more.)

Yes, the reason I looked tired today was because I had a long weekend.  And I don't mean I had an extra day off.  It that were the case, I would probably look better.

Best moment of my day today?  I called someone back and when I was put on hold the song that came on was "Everything I Do (I Do It For You)" by Bryan Adams.  And yes, I did catch myself starting to sing along with it while thinking about Robin Hood.  Admit it, you would have been doing the exact same thing.

Speaking of music and quality jams, it is my belief that we need music piped into the reception area of my office.  Nothing too "dentist-like" (I don't want the receptionist to go crazy) but it is really quiet up there when the phones are ringing and I don't enjoy silence.

Ouch on the sunglass tumble!

I had to take over reception duties for 2 days and the TV the doc has upfront needs a good whack every once in a while so that the pictures comes in. The receptionist hates that so she’ll turn it off but when I was up there, I left it on because otherwise I’d hear the buzzing of the fluorescent lights. That would drive me bat shit crazy!
