My Bum is Numb



I'm off to sit through another 8.5 mind and butt numbing hours of orientation. Even though I've worked for this organization for many, many, many years, I still have to be oriented in a process they no longer call orientation; it's now known as onboarding. I'm sure this is because they want it to seem like a much more exciting process than it is. I've had all of this information, much of it annually, several times. Yesterday, the entire day was spent discussing corporate expectations. ZZZZzzzzzzzz.

I don't think I'll be getting to the meat and potato portion of this process until Wednesday or Thursday. I hope it's a bit more stimulating than what I've been through so far. The hardest part of yesterday was the fight to keep my eyes open. I didn't want to be rude, but after they served us pizza for lunch, I had an overwhelming desire to slip into a carb induced coma. It took every ounce of energy I had to keep my eyelids from closing.

Today, I plan on Espresso loading as a strategy. Maybe I'll take my laptop so when I slip off to Panera for lunch, I can at least see how interesting today is for other bloggers. I'm also completely wrapped up in As The Sock Turns on Ravelry and I don't want to miss a thing.

Caffeine sounds like the way to go. Good luck!

Coffee was the only answer followed by more coffee. I couldn't believe that in 7.2 miles, there wasn't a single coffee shop between here and there. I'll have to backtrack tomorrow.

You're blind WT? I had no idea.
