Dear dawn, here is your Horoscope for January 20, 2003

What would happen if you just simply decided to take care of yourself today, dawn? This is what the planets are trying to tell you. You need to relax, to be taken care of, and to close you eyes and dream or fall asleep. Leave those daily tasks behind you today. You need peace and quiet. Lie down and empty your mind of all your worries. You don’t need to act, you don’t need to react, just lie down and relax. …

Oh, doesn’t that sound lovely? I want my weekend back.

Saw Shan and her dad quickly. They saw my car at the office — when they came to my door, Kumquat came running up. I heard Kumquat say to Dennis, “I’ve heard a lot about you,” and Dennis said, quite pointedly, “Oh, I’ve heard a lot about you.” hee hee. Kumquat didn’t acknowledge me, which was fine — I’d slipped into the office unnoticed today and slipped out pretty much the same way. Once I saw Kumquat, though, I developed a banging headache. Par for the course, I s’pose. That and PMS has to be dawning — I’m sure the Red Tide is on the horizon, given the unpredictable mood patterns.

I just feel bad ’cause I was perfectly hostile when Shan opened my door. It wasn’t aimed at her, by any means. I was just bitter that the only people in that building, besides me, are on executive salaries. She stopped by just to see me, and I could neither smile nor even speak. I’ve officially shut down, and I want to kick my own ass for being self-pitying and self-centered. I did call and leave an apologetic VM — I just said I’m devoid of any emotion right now, that I’m just tired, that I wish I could have enjoyed the past three days like the rest of the Veggie Patch did.

Of course, on the bright side, I will enjoy my freedom next weekend, while — unfortunately — Shan and the Veggie Executives are in back-to-back meetings. I feel bad for her — she doesn’t deserve such abuse. 🙂 I’d rather have my crappy little job any day, when I look at it that way!
