|01:55 am - 2004 in review|
Concatenate the first sentence of the first post to your journal in each month of 2004. This, in some strange way, is a review of the past year. There is safety in the herd.
2004 got off to a smooth start for me. Just woke from a post-dinner nap. I did many of the things I planned for the weekend. I thought that tonight was the night that I was go take the guys from our India team out to dinner on one of their last nights here. We have been swamped at work all week. Working a job tonight that is flabbergasting in its ugliness. Oddly, it seems that whenever we have one of these "peak" weeks/months, I get more bored at work than I do otherwise. In a series of bizarre events, the helpers who work for Ericka and who also are able to drive are all no longer working for her. Not much to do at work tonight. Just had a look at http://www.electoral-vote.com; the latest polls have Kerry leading by 298 electoral votes to 231. I ended up staying home from work last night and did get in some much-needed sleep.
Current Mood: meme-tastic
Oh boy, I used to get really bored at work.
I am curious, if you had more time, what type of activity would you love doing, that would bring you joy?

I've been investigating that very question for some time now. So far, things seem to centered around doing writing of some sort. I've done some writing for games previously and know that I've enjoyed that, and I have a hankering for fiction but haven't ever been successful at it.
I'd also like to get back into doing more game-playing with friends. I used to go to a friend's house for a game with three to six other guys every week. Good socialization and good fun; with my third-shift schedule, though, I can't make that game night anymore.
What would you say if I told you I skimmed this post and thought it was just a regular update, not the 2004 review meme aka dumbest meme yet?
Also, your review has 7 instances of the word "work".

That I'm remarkable consistant in my writing style? That my life is an unchanging bore? That you weren't paying attention?
Besides, all the cool kids were doing it.
Yeah, I update from work a lot. And when I'm not working, like now, I'm sleeping, so it's hard to keep the narrative flowing.
