Sweaty Necks

Blah. Boring day. Not much to report.

...............................

PSYCH! Gotcha! I started the new J.O.B. today! Now I know how Tony the Tiger feels when he gets to eat his Frosted Flakes, because I feel grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreat! I learned heaps about my new company - all of which RULES - and met some truly awesome people already. I'm sure it won't take long before my politeness is replaced with tacky puns and overused slang, but for now? I'm in the zone.

Yes, 'twas a great day. The only snafu (which is so Typical Pharon) was that I GOT to work like 40 minutes early. I sat in my car, checking Facebook and listening to the news, and then I headed in with a cool 10 minutes to spare.

Or so I thought.

I walked in the building, only to discover I was at THE WRONG BUILDING. The helpful dudes in the lobby said "You may as well drive to the other one, even though your car is a quadrillion miles away, because it would take you just as long to walk over."

Cut to: Me speed racing through an unfamiliar parking lot (and ending up in a weirdo dead end), tearing around the other parking lot searching for a parking spot. I thought I had it made as I ran to what I thought was the right door. It was not. That door was under construction, so I had to RUN over to the other door. So, even though I didn't have to take an SAT test or do any math, I still ended up sweating. And, against my better judgement, I had worn a turtleneck. Stupid sweaty neck.

But! I made it just in time. I learned loads of great things, had a great lunch, and even gave my first blog a shot. I'm not sure how it went - I'll get some feedback tomorrow - because I was all hopped up on free diet Coke and promises of never having to punch in or out. I had the incredibly awesome feeling, though, that I'll be both challenged and inspired, and that was...well, that was just Tops.

Shockingly, I'm already exhausted. All that learnin' has me plum tuckered out. (Uhh...what kind of sentence was THAT? Should I go back and delete it? Nope. Too tired.) I have a sneaking suspicion that I will NOT finish watching the slaughter that is the Vikings and Packers game on right now (Packers just got their second touchdown...bringing the score to 14-0) and hit the hay early. So sleepy. And also so excited for tomorrow...
