2/3 of the Rock!
a new study on work patterns shows that American office workers complete 2/3 of their assigned work each day, down from 3/4 in 1994.
the decrease is attributed to the Internet -- ironically added to offices to speed up work.
so, your "rock-time" reading is probably cutting into your work
and my posting is definitely keeping me from finishing something
people are becoming very, very computer proficient and getting a lot more shit done during the day... and then they get assigned more mundane tasks and when they become interminably bored, they simply revert to internet time
anyway, you're getting 2/3 of the rock... which, by the way, is still quite wonderful

yeah, so i had a bit of a bad day on wednesday
a breakdown of sorts
but i'm back
i'm not going to let one day -- one moment -- get me down
i'm not going to forget what's out there
i'm going to focus on doing what i can
i'm going to focus on being what i can
i'm not just going to sit on my ass
i'm going to make things happen
like i said at the beginning of the year
and i'm ready for change and challenge
go ahead, try and fuck with me... ( i mean, really, try... b/c you know you want it!)

or, happy v-day recovery
i read somewhere that the time right after new year's is a time when there are a lot of break-ups -- the holidays are over, people are ready for a fresh start, and they want to get it over with before valentine's...
which consequently makes valentine's a sad day for many
i actually had a relatively pleasant valentine's day
i took my wife to a restaurant we hadn't been to
bought her a gift certificate for a spa treatment...
gave her a card that was similar to the one i had given her 9 years ago -- when we were in college -- the card that started the relationship that became our marriage... the first open gesture of my feelings toward her
in contrast to other holidays, she actually provided me with some very thoughtful gifts
and i truly appreciated her efforts and let her know it (praising her when she's good can only help, right?!)
and then today came
and i realized
i'm still doing what i've always done -- still being wonderful to her -- still going to work every day -- still wondering how many more years i will live in which i have sex 4-6 times total -- still thinking about how i want to feel wanted
and thinking -- sure, last night was better
but will it last?
or will she revert back
and who fucking cares
because the bottom line: i'm not happy
in my mind, i'm in another place... i go there b/c it keeps me from focusing on what's right here
but that has to stop
it stopped for a moment today
and i nearly cried
which made me happy b/c it means i can still feel
i want to feel hurt, pain, happiness, wanting, desire...
i want to feel again
i want to feel again

She is beautiful
She is brilliant
From the glasses that add distinction to her face
to the perfectly chosen suit
to the delightfully smart shoes
a small box of chocolates will find its way to her desk
she won't know who sent them
but she will smile

Wearing a Suit!
If you are going to wear a suit, you need to know HOW to wear it.
Don't wear a three-button suit everyday with only the top button buttoned -- you look like a dumbass
on a three button suit, button either 1) ONLY the middle button or 2) the top and middle buttons ... you may think it's cool to button only the top button, but it's wrong and looks stupid
NEVER, ever button the bottom button on your suit -- it's for decoration, not for buttoning -- if you have a standard 2-button suit, only the top button gets buttoned ... buttoning both makes you look like a high school freshman going to his first dance
finally, never walk around with your double-breasted suit unbuttoned -- 2-button and 3-button suits can be unbuttoned and look fine, buttoning for more formal situations and/or presentation ... a double-breasted suit has extra fabric that looks awkward just waving in the wind when you walk -- button it up -- when buttoned, i think a double-breasted suit creates a strong, powerful look... so why not?!
that's my lesson for today
