Friday Five

Mine are up! Mine are up! *squeal*


1. What do you do for a living?

Monthly newspaper editor-in-chief extraordinaire. Part-time entrepreneur who always has ideas but never the energy to act on them. I also lick my wounds after I offer my employers great ideas that they, well, treat like a bird treats a windshield.

2. What do you like most about your job?

I imagine the day I resign will stand out in my “best moments of Dawn’s lifetime” collection.

I love my colleagues to death. Insert the standard shout-out to Scot, Angie and Shan for keeping me motivated to give my best once in awhile. 🙂 And, of course, for keeping me sane and smiling, albeit deliriously sometimes.

3. What do you like least about your job?

MicroMcManagement. People who clearly have nothing left to give to the organization but who are promoted and kept above us to squelch any ideas/initiative/desire to live, breathe and grow.

And today, I fucking HATE the mailman, who sent me a ripping memo because I needed for him to do his job of mailing something for me. He copied it all over creation. God forbid I ask him to find a box to mail something in — you have to e-mail the office manager to get a box, she gives you the box, you have to stuff and tape and label the box, and only THEN can you give it to the Mailroom Director. What the bloody fuck? Is that under “other duties as assigned”? And the H.R. person fucking loves him and refuses to hear criticism over him. I was ready to fucking punch him today. I still might, if he hadn’t jetted out because of the furlough afternoon. 😉

4. When you have a bad day at work it’s usually because _____…

Pussy Demure!TM needed to meet with me at least once. That would kill anybody’s will to live.

5. What other career(s) are you interested in?

Public relations, philanthropy and being Simon Cowell on “American Idol.”
