shellshocked

Crumbs. It's like the entire advertising world has decided to drop a bucket of crap all over my weary shoulders. Today, 2005 officially started. Between stoopid brochures, press articles, five by-lines for promotional items and courses, adverts, an A-Z booklet, a presentation and other corporate documentation, I am completely swamped. And pissed off. Some of the stuff is for re-doing, because some incompetent idiot didn't do it right the first time. And I'm not taking about a one pager, I'm talking throng and throngs of dicuments that completely need a revamp. It's like everyone wants a piece of me, all the bloody time. "Please just do this, please just do that," THERE IS NO TIME FUCKERS! The moment I start something, my in-tray gets a fresh dumping of new stuff. It's like I;m in this little bubble of hell. Phones are ringing off the hook, and I swear I'm about to kill the next person who asks me how to spell something. I'm a copywriter not a dictionary people. (It's called SPELLCHECK.) Cheese and rice. Then I have to go home and make dinner. Then I have to pretend I'm in a good mood. Because my other half has also had a bad day apparently. Sometimes I just wished that I lived in a fucking jungle on some lost island where I all I had to do was pick berries and make fire for my livelihood. On top of this I'm fat. I have bad hair. And it's only fucking Tuesday. Better go. That bloody in-tray isn't going to empty itself.

sounds like you've had a stressful couple of days! But don't worry, all is forgiven with Brandon (sooo the kind of thing i would do by mistake too - I once spent half an hour slagging off the place I grew up in, only to find that the person I'd been talking to had just bought a flat there) and a nice productive afternoon at work will give you all the more time for blogging tomorrow :)

yes, am going to brave the blizzards of NYC. will try to maintain blog while there but if not, business as usual next thursday!

Hopefully all of that work won't stress you out. Just keep calm and remember that the weekend is only a few days off...
