Friday fun

Yep, it's good things Friday again.

But first, a story:

I was crying on the train last night. Because of this e-mail, from my boss:

Let's add it to the newsletter.

Hi Rich,

I was able to move things around on Bob’s schedule to accommodate a meditation workshop at your office on March 24, 3 to 5 pm

Yep. My boss. Scheduled a meditation class for the office. And wants me to put it in the company newsletter.

Why were you crying, Hed?

It was a happy cry. An I-can't-fucking-believe-I-work-here happy cry.
Da came through the surgery like a champ and it was all good news again. Yay!
My sunglasses are fixed better than new and arrived yesterday.
Just in time for a long weekend in Longboat Key with my dear friend and college roommate Susie.
Pineapple Express is pretty funny.
Catholics with ashes on their heads walking through the Loop this week.
Jim made steak last night and it was perfect.
The 11 bus was waiting for me twice this week.
Try the dark chocolate almond Zone bars. They're fabulous.
Did I mention my boss scheduled a meditation class for our office?
It rained last night - a lovely, heavy, warm rain - and I didn't have an umbrella. I walked to my car with my head tilted back to the sky. It was awesome.
I worked out three times this week.
Yep a meditation class. In my office.
I am listening to: Killing the Blues - Plant/Krauss
I am reading: Nothing
And I am: Joyful

Short course in mediation:

"For purposes of mediation, my client is indeed a scumbag (get over it)"

"Hmmm." (Nodding head affirmatively.)


(Meandering pleasant conversation.)


(See previous parenthetical.)



"Maybe if we couple it with X."

Repeat as necessary.

Meditation is wayyyyy better than mediation. :)

Hedy -

Walking while looking up into the rain is not a bad idea as long as you don't go all turkey and end up drowning....although if it is a FRIDAY drowning in "HedyWorld" that would be a fabulous thing.

ring a ding ding

Ah shit, I read to fast and I'm constrained by perception.

And double FYI - my sophomore wants to someday work in your company ... meditation and potentially yoga at lunch -- yo! bring it on!!
