I have gone back to the days of keeping my ear buds in with the music blasting. . .well, not really blasting, I would like to keep my hearing. Since I have the attention span of a gnat, sometimes, well, a lot of the times, I can get distracted while working.
So the past two weeks I have been listening to the radio via the ear buds which does allow me to have the volume up a bit more and I can actually hear the songs. Case in point, when the Lady Gaga song “Born the Way” first came out I could have sworn that it was “Express Yourself” by Madonna. Now before Lady Gaga comes here to rant and rave about how wrong I am, the reality is, it does remind me of that song and when you have your radio on at the lowest notch for sound, well, it does sound like that.
In the past two weeks I have been rocking and rolling my way through pulling reports and working each account. In fact, I am kind of ahead of the game. All because I have been able to shut out the random visits and conference calls that go on around me.
I somehow manage to hear my phone ring though (my work phone has different ring tones, I chose the one that sounds like a bomb is getting ready to go off). Shy is calling me to tell me about the phone and computer system crashing yesterday at their office. We chat about our weeks for a second and I mention the Queen and how she is kicking butt in terms of sales goals.
Shy had sent an email congratulating her on being one of the top people in sales for last month and the Queen writes back saying she should look at the bags under her eyes. Shy was going to offer up some MK products and I said, ask her if they are Louis Vuitton. Because if there is one thing about my Queen, she is styling and rocking nice things. This has me in fits of giggles because the Queen replies back saying they might be Couch or Prada (something like that).
And then it goes down from there, we talk about the goofy things that happen in her office and I am still giggling. I am sure that my coworkers think I have lost it. Shy and I even discussed how a therapist on call for the office would be a good thing. I asked her what color she would prefer for her straight jacket and she requested an ice blue one to really bring out her eyes.
And this is what I do all day, I laugh while I am working. My job isn’t funny but between emails, texts and the things I hear on the radio while working, I can’t help it.
I think each day should be started out with a funny YouTube video. That way, as you go through your daily tasks, you can let your mind wonder a bit and giggle. Because laughter is the best medicine, even when you are having a bad day.
By the way. . . a few items to Google/YouTube for a Friday evening:
- Will Ferrell, drunk history
- Giggling penguin
- Charlie Bit Me
- Betty White on SNL (any clip will do)

Minus the ipod, this is me at work too. I will have random email and text conversations throughout the day and people in the cubbies near me will hear me sporadically giggling or outright laughing. All of my coworkers are ready to commit me at this point, because they have NO CLUE why I would spontaneously breakout in fits of laughter.
LOL! Yep, I keep waiting for them to commit me but sitting in a cubicle working on spreadsheets I have to have something to make me laugh.
