All work and no play really does make Rachel a dull girl.Boo.I promise some less boring, not-work-related blog content coming your way. Maybe even tonight.
I miss my blog. I miss pretending that lots and lots of people read it. I miss writing things that I think are witty and laughing to myself about them all day long.What I don't miss: work. You know why? Because I have been here every freaking day, dealing with spreadsheets and salaries and Excel… Continue reading having a blogless life sucks.
So I finished work at 5 p.m. PDT, and there was nothing left to do at the hotel but drink. Since I wasn't huge on the idea of getting on a plane all sloshed up, I decided to come over to the airport early. Five hours early. I thought I could manage to people-watch for… Continue reading recap: killing time at LAX

So be prepared, my few regular readers, for infrequent updates and an… Continue reading friday update
So I was going to blog today about Calpernia Addams and the premiere of her new dating show, Transamerican Love Story, on Monday. And I still might. But it's been busy (in a good way), and I've been distracted, so I haven't gotten there yet.But in the meantime, some of the funny things I've encountered… Continue reading this is office space.
Just a few minutes ago, I walked away from my desk to drop a FedEx package at the front reception area for pickup. I left my desk in its usual state of disarray: personnel files, emails, payroll notices lying all over. I wasn't gone for more than a minute. When I came back, a new… Continue reading WTF?
