Mid Afternoon Slump

It's the middle of the afternoon, say around 2pm, I look at the clock on my computer screen for about the 23456569th time. I did everything right in order to make this day go by fast. I came in lateish, I waited until after 12:30 to eat lunch, I ate lunch NOT at my desk, I worked on all the projects I haven't had time for in between looking at the time. It's STILL only 2pm.

Usually I have more shit to do than I really know what to do with, and I am all stressy. Today that is not the case. I have hit the mid afternoon slump, and the most exciting thing to happen in the last 2 hours was that I ate the mini yogurt with crunchy granola bits I suddenly remembered I had in the kitchen.

I think adults should get mid afternoon nap time. I could easily set up a mat under the desk in my cubicle and just sleep for 20 minutes or 3 hours. My job usually isn't boring, well the dynamics around the office usually aren't boring, my actual job is quite mind numbing.

We have recently hit the calm before the storm, the storm being tomorrow's greatly anticipated staff meeting. Big thing are happening, and all I can think is that I really should be at home preparing by watching my DVR and wearing really warm, fuzzy socks.
