So, my boss asked for volunteers today. Space is tight so we need to consolidate cubicles, and that means some of us need to work at home two to three days a week. Hell yeah, I volunteered. I took that challenge squarely on my Spartacus-cleft chin.
Bed and laptop, not chair and desktop
Convenient for cooking and housework
No division between work and home
Can't wear new coat as much
"No socializing" is the only one that troubles me. Most people have multiple collections: a set of work friends, a set of church friends, school friends, club friends, knitting friends. Marcia has an entire social circle that has nothing to do with work. Libby and Caroline have fellow moms.
What I have now is a collection of work friends, then a mish-mash of one-off friends with no connection to each other. I need another group to lose myself in (and then monopolize every conversation and draw all attention to myself, as I do).
And I need to travel with these people.
Clearly I need to start a band.
