My brain needs a break from work. Hence, an LJ post.Thing #1:
For the first time since I left my prior employer almost two years ago, I actually feel twinges of sadness about the fact that I no longer work there. Why, you ask? Next Friday, the Omaha office is participating in a national townhall meeting at which Stephen Colbert is going to present a 15-minute segment called the "KPMG Report." I feel that as a KPMG alumni, I should be allowed to attend this meeting. Or maybe I can find a way to sneak in. I really want to go.Thing #2
: At the suggestion of both ciachick711
, I sent pamie a picture of my Dwight bobblehead on strike, along with an e-mail offering my support. On Sunday, I received a very kind reply from her, and she posted my e-mail
(along with many others) on her blog. Mine's the last e-mail in that entry if you're interested. For those not in the know, pamie is a writer who used to do Gilmore Girls recaps on TWoP. She's written a couple of books, worked on America's Next Top Model, and prior to the strike, was a writer on Samantha Who. For the time being, she's a strike captain. She's all around awesome and hysterical, and I've really enjoyed reading her personal experience with the strike. It drives home how heartbreaking it is, really.Thing #3
: I have fallen in love with Bones, y'all. I'm only halfway through the first season, and I can't wait to finish the rest. I am so excited that I get to go home and watch Bones tonight (as well as last night's Chuck), it's a little ridiculous. Honestly, I'm not sure I've felt this gleeful about watching something since the season six premiere of Gilmore Girls. Also? I'm in love with this season of TV, in general. I think I'm watching more TV shows right now than I ever have: Chuck, Bones, Pushing Daisies, Private Practice, 30 Rock, The Office, Grey's Anatomy and Friday Night Lights. It hurts my heart a little (or, okay, maybe a lot) that soon there will be no new episodes.
OK, break over.
