m.i.a. = missing indoobian actions


This particular M.I.A. does not stand for “missing in action” or refer to the lady singer famous for the song Paper Planes which I don’t particularly care for, but was surprised to see performing at the Grammys a few weeks ago. That’s another story entirely.

Some may have noticed decreased activity of my presence in the blogospshere. Maybe. Maybe not. Depends on who is stalking me I suppose. Or who I’ve been stalking. I haven’t really been reading most of my favorite blogs recently. Much less comments. I haven’t even responded to comments here, yet! But no worries. I’ll be back, sooner or later. I’ve just been really busy. And this week is no exception.

Especially this week, actually. I have about 2-3 meetings this week, some of which are on the same day! Not only that, but my weekly 55 file quota I had to add an extra 20 to make up for lost files last week. That’s my own fault. All that slacking had caught up with me. So consider this doing time for the crime. I progressed in my digression (from work). I slacked early and often a little too much, then crammed as much work as I could in the last 2, sometimes 3 days. Which meant I had to work on a Friday!

[Gasps are heard world-wide, shock and awe on their faces. Even dogs look up confused. Birds stop chirping. Planes are grounded. Construction halted. Even the Sun (which no one knew had a mouth) has mouth agape.]

Yes, indeed, the master slacker had to practically work an extra full day to try to catch up. I can use the word “try” because I gave it my best attempt, but didn’t make my 55. I failed.

[Everyone has sighs of sadness.]

But never fear, I’m on a mission! I’ve changed my ways! Yesterday, a good start for a Monday, I was up 20, which makes up for last week (since in reality, they count the files for an entire month) and today I already spent an hour and a half letting my computer update/upgrade security measures (which counts towards off-production, and would’ve taken up my time some time this week whether I manually started it or not). Plus the meetings will also count and maybe save me a whole 5 files or more! Who knows? What I do know is that I will strive to achieve my 55, or even 65 and shine through with dazzling but humble colors that I expect myself to do. I have a reputation to keep. It’s okay to slack as long as I have the work to back it up first. And now it’s time to back that thing up. I’m sorry, bad joke. This isn’t 1999 anymore. Forgive me.

Speaking of music, friDay may be the next time you’ll hear from me on here. I want to give 1000 apologies for missing last weeks and not doing anything Black-History-Month-related like I might’ve said I would sometime this months… which is almost over. But as I always believed, Black history should be celebrated all the time. So maybe I’ll purposefully do what I was going to do in March. Or April. Or August. Nothing ever happens in August. We’ll see. But as for now, back to basics. It’s time to attack! I’ve got iSaac here, fully charged and ready to go. I had my eggs (no bacon today, maybe tomorrow) and a pretty good cup of coffee. Not feeling the caffeine yet… Oh wait… HA HA! ….yeah, there it is! Okay now… attack! [Takes a short nap.]
