A little ray of sunshine, I'm not

And I began the day in such a good mood, too. I danced into the office, literally. My colleagues were amazed (those that were here already), and not a little concerned. But I couldn't help it -- the sun was shining, I've only 4 more days to go before the weekend, and they were playing Earth, Wind & Fire on the bus.

That was then, though -- this is several hours later. Work isn't progressing as it should, and I've been stuck dealing with people nagging me on the phone on the one hand, and showing my new assistant Sophie the ropes on the other. Which is all very well and good and necessary, I suppose, but really I just want to get on with it! I do have a deadline to beat, after all.

Vis-à-vis my new assistant: she arrived yesterday, all shiny and brand spankin' new. She's nice, and French. I hope she'll also prove to be accurate, efficient and quick to pick up on what needs to be done.

So in order to quiet my misgivings and pick myself up mentally, I give myself a present: 12 more months of LJ + extra user pics. And am stumped when it comes to picking 50 of the latter.

Whole volumes of smut have been written about showing nice, new, shiny French assistants 'the ropes', so chin up. At least you can mine the situation for some good fic. So come on back to the Shiny happy people sect.

Well, if you put it like that, I don't know how can I refuse...thanks! I feel better already.

I don't think I've ever been that cheery getting into work, though I used to like driving through the countryside sometimes with good music on. Amazing how music moulds your moods, isn't it?

Okay. My schedule is clear.

Belated Happy Birthday! You sound like you had a wonderful weekend. I love working from home, but sometimes I miss going to the office on Mondays all giddy and mind stuck on music like Earth,Wind and Fire.

Thank you for the belated b'day wishes! And there's nothing like a bit of soul to get you started on the week, is there?
