and I was doing so well as well... I came into work this morning with an open mind (well, as open as I could with my history in this place) and a determination to knuckle down and get on with work. I cleared a whole bunch of stuff and now, about five minutes ago, have come to a grinding halt.

This coincided with the first instance this morning of me having to open up one of my boss's Excel documents.

Excel is teh Ev0l, clearly. It has sucked all my willpower into the screen and is mocking me with its rows and columns and ability to add numbers without having to picture the sum in its head (yeah, I suck at maths and can barely do basic additions without a calculator if it doesn't involve making change). And to top it all I'm on a caffeine break - as in, I'm taking a break from caffeine. NaNoWriMo kinda scared me with the amount of coffee I was drinking, especially over that last week. Kidding myself by using a cup instead of a mug doesn't work if I still drink the entire pot and then immediately make another pot... :) so no caffeine for me today, or at least until my head explodes.

Excel and no coffee, this is hell isn't it?

Oh - almost forgot - new start in the office this morning, the boss takes her round and introduces her to us all and says after she leaves my desk "Shona's just back from a two week holiday so she's a little happy right now". And I'm not normally? Actually, wait, don't answer that...
Current Mood: blahblah
Current Music: the wind howling through the badly sealed windows

This would be me if I had to give up coffee

Tea doesn't count, it's got less caffeine than coffee so we can just pretend it doesn't have any.

I like that argument!

I'll have to watch the clip when I get home - no headphones with me today which is another reason I'm getting grumpier as the day goes on... :)
