Ban Blogging

I read blogs, watch You Tube, check out Perez Hilton and occasionally do something at my desk that actually qualifies as work. Yesterday, IT cut off blog reading and You Tube.

I’m devestated.

Anything with ‘blog’ in the address or any variation therein is forbidden. Forbidden, I tell you. I’ll have to post in the mornings before work, I guess-I can’t even get on to my own blog. And I promised myself I’d give this little blogging experiment at least six months-a year at most. I suppose they feel we’ll spend more time working now.

Right.

Ah, the American work ethic.

Don’t get me wrong, I do my job and do it well, for my reviews tell me so. It just doesn’t take as long to get it done as they think it does. And I’ve told my boss this. Repeatedly. So have the girls I work with. We are all in the same boat. Bossy responds by saying that it balances out when a couple of times a year we are really swamped.

When does this busy time fall, exactly? I’ve missed it every year so far.

For awhile, I looked for things to do-asked for extra projects. I felt guilty. Past tense, if you noticed. For last week Bossy told us she needed to hire an additional person to pick up the slack when we’re traveling.

Do what?

I shouldn’t gripe. I like Bossy a lot, I really do. She is a great person to work for and with. I truly enjoy my job and the people around me. I like coming to work and Mondays hold no fear or dread for me. I just hope we can keep the productivity consultants at bay.

Alas…I’ve still got Perez.

I bet IT don't block their own access.

Anyway, is t possible to setup RSS feeds to your email? That way at least you can read the new posts even if you can't visit the sites themselves.

I dunno. I'll give it a whirl. Thanks for watching out for me, Buddy!
