November Challenge - Day Ten

Help me figure something out. I took today off of work. The office is closed tomorrow and the idea of a four day weekend really sounds wonderful. Ken had to work today. Whenever we have this situation, I always get a call around 11:30 asking for me to come to his office so we can go out to lunch together. I never want to do it. I really don't. It's my day off and I'm enjoying some quality "me" time. He gives me the defeated victim voice and then I feel like a selfish asshole and cave in and go. Today was no different. But I started thinking about this. Is it me who is the bad guy in these situations or is it Ken? I feel selfish, but the more I think about it, the more I'm starting to think Ken is the selfish one. He's not getting his way and so he throws down the guilt. I don't get an awful lot of solo time anymore and it's a huge bonus when I get it. I guess the true test is going to be the week of Thanksgiving. I'm off the whole week. Let's see how many of those calls I get that week.

I think I have my iTunes problem fixed (::fingers crossed::) I rebooted my iPhone, downloaded the iTunes update, rebooted the computer and everything seems to be working. I'm not sure if everything is a little slower now or it's my imagination, but it's working. I tend to freak out over things like this and in the heat of the moment, I can't see straight. I tried to reign it in this time. But everything is working now and I'm much happier.

And don't forget, please go two these two websites and complete the profile information about me. One is positively slanted and one is negatively slanted. I'm finding the results so far very interesting. I think next week I'm going to post the results. So you've got all week to go do them. If you're afraid I'm going to be mad, don't be. I'm not. And you have the option of doing this anonymously if that's a concern. I'm very curious as to how the world sees me as opposed to how I see myself.

Just tell him you're busy...or don't answer the phone and tell him you didn't hear it ring. Duh!

I did those good and bad thingys. I wasn't anonymous though. I figure if I say anything negative, you should know it's from me. I will tell you though, I only wanted to pick two words on the negative one, it made me pick five. It's very brave of you to ask people to do both. I'm not. I would hate to see how people think of me.
