Default How much work have you gotten done today?

These non-Sunday games kill me. I can't think about anything else, but how many hours before the game.

How about the rest of you workaholics? Have you been burning the proverbial midnight oil, like me?

A very important poll is forthcoming. I will make it anonymous, in case any of your employers are members here.

If you want to post an anecdote about how worthless you've been today, feel free. Here's mine:

I have had a spreadsheet open all day. I've added five rows to it, in one column. BAM! I'm exhausted!

The good thing is that tomorrow, I'll get loads of work done...

...other than the time I have to spend, reading about the game.

I didn't even notice that I am just a few posts short of 13K.

Weird.

I'm over 13K now. Cool!

It's sort of cloudy outside today.

Just an hour and forty-five more minutes.

Humumumumumum!

It would be awesome if you were a Browns fan. Then you'd be wearing your team colors every day!

Have you ever thought about that? That would be cool!

You should totally make another Broncos avatar - only this time, do the old logo!

Pretty sure real fans ask every day the Broncos play that aren't on Sunday's off from work.

Man, that sentence made almost no sense. Are you already drinking?

I work for myself!

I just added a sixth row to my spreadsheet. And I populated part of a second column with two more rows.

I'm pouring sweat! I didn't miss the kickoff with all of this work, did I?

No, still an hour and twenty-five minutes away.

Humumumumumum!

Dropped my son off at school, took my daughter to breakfast, then to Toys R Us (and did my best to hide her Christmas presents, but she's a sharp 20 month old, she'll likely have forgotten what was in those boxes by the 25th), then off to J Crew to spend a gift card I got for my birthday and then finished up at Costco. Now the 3 of us are watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, then off to bed for the 2 of them and game time for me!

No mention of a bong hit anywhere in this story is depressing.

That's actually a great day!

I always feel like I need to shower after I go to Toys R Us. I swear there are some serious germs in that place!

I flew out to Denver with my daughter to go to the American Girl doll store a few weekends ago. It was for her 6th birthday. We spent two days, and it was the greatest, most horrible trip I have ever taken. If you've ever been to the American Girl store, you understand what I am saying.

I haven't been to one yet, my boy is almost 4 and really getting into the Bronco games this year (but he'll be asleep before kickoff), my girl is only 20 months, so no American Girl stores as of now. I'm sure they will be in my future and we're having another girl come February, so my house will probably become a doll house, but I'll try to delay that as much as possible.

Gotta admit, not a huge production day at my warehouse. Still working just to be truthful on my 3-4 hours. Nothing to do with the game today just lack of motivation. When I do start to work, I kick ass trying to catch up from my evil side of Mr. Goof Off. I will overcome.

It's a racket, man. We went with a budget in mind, and ended up blowing it out of the water. But it will be a trip that both of us will always remember, so it was worth it.

I love having a daughter! I'm a total sucker, though. I can be totally disciplined with my son. With my daughter, I cave. I have to get it under control by the time she becomes a teenager, or I'll be in trouble.

Watching games with your son is pretty incredible. Wait until he gets a little older, and can start asking reasonably-informed questions about it.

Only a water with a lemon slice for me, sir.

I am trying to decide what to eat during the game.

The healthy part of me says baked fish, with a spinach salad.

The get fat and be gross part of me says ChiKen wings Or piZza.
