We Made It

Well we made it to Friday night. It’s only 8:00 and I’m ready for bed. I’m not sure if it is the remnants of the sinus infection or what, but I’m beyond exhausted. Honestly, I was a bit puzzled until I remembered I only had one cup of coffee today!

At the office, they say I glow when I have my coffee in hand. This afternoon as 4:00 rolled around, my energy level was completely gone. To the point one of my colleagues was a bit worried. Lesson learned. Don’t skip that second cup of coffee!

This afternoon I had the opportunity to attend a baby shower for one of our colleague with some great co-workers. Our training department knows what they’re doing. The shower was absolutely marvelous and fun with beautiful decorations and desserts. Nothing compliments a vegan protein shake better than a gourmet cupcake. If only there was coffee, it would have been completely perfect.

Now we’re headed into another hockey filled weekend. Sunday I’m headed to the gym for some aerial yoga action. Hopefully, I can get in a power burn class first, so I can fully indulge in the amazing Super Bowl food. I hope everyone’s week was productive and their weekend is relaxing!

Fraud

As I thought about today’s daily prompt fraud, I came across this quote from Sophocles, “rather fail with honor than succeed by fraud.”   It really spoke to me because I’d rather fail honorably than “succeed” fraudulently.  Bernie Madoff was once a darling to many as he provided them rich returns on their investments.  For years, Madoff lived the high life, but as is always the case his fraud was unveiled.  Deservedly,  he’ll spend the rest of his life rotting in jail.

I think we can all understand the attraction, right?  It appears to be the easiest, most expeditious route to the top.  Moreover, it can be frustrating seeing dishonorable people succeed while you struggle. I’m sure many felt Madoff wasn’t on the up and up, but didn’t have the proof until 2008. Nevertheless, we cannot give in to the temptation.   Remember the fastest path isn’t always the right path.  A path pave b

Here are some of my least favorite frauds:

  • Vegan cheese – I could easily be a vegetarian, but as Meatloaf would say, “I’d do anything for love, but I wouldn’t do that….” No vegan cheese for me.
  • Equifax’s web security                                                                TPYznCi.gif
  • KUWTK – I won’t even dignify them by spelling out their show.
  • WWE- Closest thing to wrestling I enjoyed was Hogan Knows Best and that wasn’t real either.
  • Fake news
  • Fake friends – don’t be a plastic                         .tumblr_mhtj2cKMrP1rv3b62o1_500.gif
  • Decaffeinated coffee – this is perhaps the worst offender of them all.  At this point in my life, I need a daily IV drip of fully caffeinated coffee.                                                There-is-a-time-and-place-for-decaf-coffee.png

Coffee Fiend

As a coffee fiend,  I have to have my daily Dunkin.   After two weeks away from work, I went back for my first day dunkin in hand.   My morning cup of Dunkin was a welcome change from the extremely expensive lattes we were drinking in Norway.  I don’t know what it says about my coffee habit.  However,  my Dunkin crew was relieved to see me back at the store.  Since I hadn’t been in the store for over two weeks, they became worried about me. I’m definitely a coffee over tea girl and I run on it.   Thank god for coffee otherwise I would have probably fallen asleep by 9:00 am courtesy of  jet lag.
