Tracy has ruined me

You know how Harrison's are addicted to reading? Well, this can easily be solved in a professional situation, because I just don't bring a book to work. However, because Tracy introduced me to the joys of blogging, I have recently begun to take an occasional short break to read blogs when I am bored at work. (Not that I don't have work to do, it just doesn't sound fun to do it at that moment.)

So at work this afternoon, I suddenly realize that I've been reading my cousin Denae's blog so voraciously that I lost track of my surroundings completely. My eyes are now not able focus on anything else, because I've been reading a green screen for so long they can't adjust. That is embarrassing and what must my coworkers think of me--I've been lost in blogging land for who knows how long!! Also, I did indeed laugh out loud at one point. Please read her blog if you don't believe me. And blame my genetics, because I really do lose track of the outside world when I'm reading. I hope my supervisor didn't try to talk to me while I was caught up in the excitement of Denae's life.

So thank you Tracy, for ruining my professional facade at work.

P.S. This actually started as a ranting email to Tracy. But then my blogging obsession clicked in, and here you go!

Want to really ruin your professional day? Try using Google Reader to track the blogs you like.

Yeah...I totally get lost in the blogosphere at work sometimes. In the morning I'll open up all of the blogs that have new postings (I still need to show you how to track them) and then I'll periodically read them as I get bored with work. Sometimes they'll all be read within the first hour of work and then I am left with the boredom (and obessive checking of email) throughout the rest of the day. I feel your pain...

It's 4:36 am and I'm still reading and writing blogs.

I have a problem.

KIM!!! I died laughing over this. I am imagining you at work lost in blogland!! I, too, am completely out of it when reading. It used to be books on the couch for me and now, I'll admit, it is the computer. I try to make rules for myself so I won't be such an addict. Thanks for reading my blog! I'm so glad you are into the blogging world now. While you're emailing Ang, e-mail me too and I'll send you a Christmas card.

I can imagine you tuning the world out. I think that I have been tuned out once or twice (maybe more). But, at work?! You should really be careful. Boss probably won't like being ignored. Not good. :) But it is SO addicting. PS your cousins blog is hilarious! (see look how addicted I am)
