"Working" from home

I have a rather crucial report due tomorrow. A big trial with all sorts of ramifications. Apparently all the higher ups are looking at it with great concern. I've been advised that if we do well, "The Board" will look favorably upon us. When my direct supervisor and I heard this during a conference call Friday afternoon we looked at each other with raised eyebrows. As far as we know, we don't have a board. I think at best we could try to turn a good result into designated parking spaces. The supervisor is trying to think of a way a soft-serve ice cream machine is crucial to the outcome of the trial. Good luck on that one.

Naturally, I am working from home today to ensure that I can get this report done without any unnecessary interruptions. The fact that the US is playiong in The World Cup this faternoon is mere conincidence I assure you. Incidentally those fuckers are getting thoroughly outplayed by the Czechs and are down 2-0 at the half. Not that I'm watching. I'm working from home today.

I like that option of "working from home". However, since I work from home every day, the novelty is slowly beginning to wear off. Working the first half of my day in the same clothes I wore to bed is a luxury I will never get tired of.

I don't know what you do for a living, but the line, "The supervisor is trying to think of a way a soft-serve ice cream machine is crucial to the outcome of the trial" has made me assume you are an attorney for Baskin Robbins 31 Flavors.

Lack of supervision can be a negative at times...today I emptied my hottub and refilled it, listened to Howard Stern, deposited a large paycheck that was FedEx'd to me today - so with fresh money in the bank I'm just not motivated to work today - I haven't even showered yet.

What, you mean blogging doesn't constitute "working"?? It does here at MY place of business. Of course, I'm working from home...
