This morning, there seemed to be a great deal of noise around me. I am not a morning person in the least (let me stress that: AM NOT a morning person at all!). So when I am trying to begin my daily activities, I am at my best when things (near my desk) are pretty dull and quiet. However, there are those occasions when they are not quiet at all. There are "speakerphone calls" going on at 2 or 3 different locations at the same time, or there are 'mini-meetings' going on directly behind me (even while the speakerphone-fests are still happening). Just general traffic flow to and from the printer that I sit right near can be noisy enough. It can drive you to inhale white-out some days (and maybe even those niftyl 'Dry Erase' markers... I'm just sayin!). As the day goes along, of course, I get better, and better... Best to catch me sometime after lunch.
Not RIGHT after lunch, you understand, as most of the time there is a 'buffer' period needed after lunch to re-adjust to the work flow... I'd say, 1 to 2 hours maybe? But wait, no that would bring us to nearly 3:00. If you have anything of importance to discuss with me, don't catch me near 3:00 because that's really time for me to get back up and stretch my legs... "afternoon break" if you will... after all, we can't sit too long, it's not good for the circulation or our backs. This could take anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes, depending on break activity. Once I return, I normally have a few things that require my attention. Important Deadlines... you know.
These have to be finished before the end of the day, more than likely, so any time left between 4:30-5:00 is taken up by making certain I have not forgotten anything important, and preparing to leave. So whatever it is that you need to speak to me about is going to have to wait until tomorrow... sorry.
Oh, and back to what I was saying about noise and distraction. It becomes so unbearable in fact that I have to plug in my headphones and turn up the music.
After all, Rock and Roll ain't Noise Pollution... so today, here were the songs that got me through the morning (in no particular order, and probably a few times rotated).
AC/DC - That's the Way I Wanna Rock N' Roll, High Voltage, Sin City...
Agents of Oblivion - Paroled In '54, Dead Girl, Big Black Backwards...
Lamb of God - Redneck, Foot to The Throat, Walk With Me In Hell...
Jimi Hendrix - Fire, Room Full of Mirrors, Voodoo Chile...
Kiss - I Stole Your Love, Lick It Up
Van Halen - Show Your Love!
Rock On, and I'll certainly try to.
Hope you got the chance to catch Meggy Moon's Crazy Talk tonight, which was even crazier since I called in and talked with Meggy on the air! That's right, me... So if you didn't listen in live, then do please go to the url and click up on tonight's broadcast, which is archived there along with all of her other shows... It was great fun, she had alot of good info going on, and she also played a few of our songs... Then again, you could go and listen in just to hear my sensational sexy southern voice, right?? Grab some tissues, and head on over for an earful of Me talking to Meggy Moon! Enjoy...
