Zombification

I'm not quite dead, although the total lack of activity here would probably be proof to the contrary for many of you. I've been crazy busy the last few weeks traveling to exotic destinations, hosting out-of-town guests, and getting moved around at work to a new boss and new responsibilities but basically the same old job I'm getting tired of.

Yes. I can admit it now. I'm not quite sure what got me started thinking about it, probably the fact that almost all my friends that work there have left (at least those I started with) and I am no longer stimulated by the work, and worlds of options have been recently opened to me through b-school, and finding out what kind of jobs are out there that might be fun (even if I would have to pay for my health benefits). I've been where I'm at long enough and am now starting to plot my exit strategy. I'm not sure what it is yet (like I said, I'm just starting and plotting is a complex business) but when I get there I think I'll know. I'm not even sure what I want to do...something with non-profits. But at the same time I also have a mortgage now and enjoy eating food other than ramen noodles (only one packet left, dammit doesn't food magically appear in the freezer! It makes me seriously consider Peapod. Wait a minute, this aside has cone completely off topic...).

I don't know where I'm going with this, but it feels better to say out loud that I now know that Industrial distribution is not for me. Now to repeat that many, many, many, many, times and see what happens to my resolve.

After all, Elmo seems equally disinterested in both...

I have a hard time believing that Elmo was traumatized by Katy Perry's decollatage after discovering that he had already "been arou...
