A few ramblings for the day…

2 Nov

1)For the love of God, didn’t anyone in this office bring in any leftover Halloween candy?  There’s no explanation other than my co-workers have all turned into non-candy-eating zombies.  Or likely aliens.  I can’t prove it, but I’m pretty sure even zombies would eat chocolate.  I image they would stumble around mumbling, “Braaaaiiiinnnns……mmm, I could go for a Kit Kat…….. and braaaaiiiiiinnnnns…”    But I digress.   There are major breaches of the after Halloween office candy protocol going on here, people.  It’s unnatural.

2)I have to have a simple outpatient procedure done in my lady region in the near future.  No scalpels or incisions involved.  Not a big deal.  I got a call from the hospital today to get my insurance information and they informed me that they would like 10% of the estimated cost upfront, which was not a small number.   I refrained from telling them that for that much they should plate it in gold while they’re in there.  I think I paid them less to help me produce a human being.

3)No matter how much I try to prioritize my work, with little to no input from my attorneys about what they are working on getting scheduled, something always sneaks up and bites me in the ass.   I even review the files and calendars regularly to see what’s been added.  I’ve been working on other files and letting file “F” (short for “F– you”) sit.  The next thing I know, there are depos on the calendar – for next week – in File F!  Without saying too much about the case, take my word for it that this case jumped a couple of steps in the usual course of things and kicked me square in the taco.   Yay.  Now I get to pay hurry-up and catch-up with this file, while juggling the other things that I already had in the works.     Thank you, File F.  And thank you, attorney, who acts surprised when I don’t have things ready to go at the drop of a hat.

With all that said, I think I will grab some caffeine and see what kind of chocolate I can scrounge up before someone gets hurt.

    Girl, I feel you! We had NO candy in the office on Halloween, which was totally wrong. Then we had a big bag of leftover candy the following day, but the chocolate only lasted about 2 and a half hours, which was some kind o’ plague o’ locusts record!

    But I sent my youngest to trick or treat with her BFF in a really ritzy neighborhood, and am totally hooked up on a ridiculous amount of chocolate at home. Yay.

    Hope your procedure goes well – I can identify, as recently I have been dishing out the co-pays for specialists and procedures. Sigh. I’d rather spend that money on a long vacation!

      Thanks! I agree, why can’t we at least get a mani-pedi while all that other crap goes on? Sheesh.
