So as I mentioned, I recently received an award from my company for spending all day at work reading blogs. I was touched and moved. Since then, there have been two developments.
1) I have gone from having nothing to do all the live long day other than read blogs and do the Washington Post crossword puzzle, to having no less than three impossible deadlines to meet every single day. Now normally, I am all about impossible deadlines, I eat impossible deadlines for breakfast. These impossible deadlines, however, involve staring at a bunch of data in spreadsheets and doing something or other to it. Sometimes I actually get around to doing something or other, but most of the time I just send an email saying "I have reviewed the HEOUFJNS report and have no disputes at this time." This works really well, and will continue to work really well right up to the day I am fired for incompetence.
2) I received the aforementioned plaque for the aforementioned reward. It is a picture frame. Inside the picture frame is a certificate that says (Company Name) applauds (blank) for (blank). In these blanks, someone has taken the time to print my name in the "applauds" blank and the date in the "for" blank. My name? Is misspelled.
