First off this week, I must apologize to Kelly. Actually, Kelly told me to. This is something I should have addressed a week ago.
You see, Kelly said she was jealous that she doesn’t have as many readers as me or near the compliments on her column that I receive. So, I told her to put my name in her headline and that would for sure attract the readers. You might remember the Just another week with Darren... column she wrote? Or you might not.
Anyways, the reason for the apology is that even with my name at the top of her column, it did have the desired result for her.
So Kelly, from the middle of my heart, I sincerely apologize for not helping you in this time of need.
I’m sorry. Really, really sorry.
It has been one crazy week in the office, but we somehow made it through.
We always try to keep it light, fun and humorous around here, which I think helps with the hectic pace at times and the stress of meeting deadlines.
We had one of those laughs this week where work came to a complete stop for about ten minutes because we were laughing so hard. You know the ones? Where you can barely breathe, tears are rolling down your face and even your stomach starts to hurt after a while. Definitely needed that.
Sorry, just grasping at straws as what to talk about....
Crap. You know what? I just realized I’m still ‘it’ from a game of tag I was playing at the farm in 1989. I’ll have to try to get everyone together so we can finish, or at least until I’m not ‘it’.
Do you ever wonder how much better your life would be if you actually forwarded all those chain emails?
If there is one thing I don’t have a tolerance for, it’s standing in lines. I mean, you stand there, staring at nothing and it takes forever. You just wish she would hurry up and pick a suspect already.
I’m still working on a Facebook app that prevents pictures of cats from showing up on my News Feed. Apparently, I’m not nearly smart enough to do that, but somebody must be. So, wherever you are, please help. I also put in a request to Mark Zuckerberg to add a ‘dislike’ and ‘who cares’ button to Facebook. I have yet to hear a response.
Something else I realized this week is that I have no idea what life is like where I don’t check my Facebook or Twitter account. By the way, I’m incredibly close to 100 followers on Twitter. Come on people, give my life some purpose!
Is fist pumping a real dance move? Because Kelly is convinced it is. Me, I’m not so sure.
And finally, my quote of the week. Another one from Dr. Wayne Dyer.
“With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat what has happened as a gift. Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing. You get to choose.”
