In about an hour after I finish writing this to you, the best readers in the whole wide World Wide Web, I'll be battling my way through Newark airport to spend the next three days doing what my expense report calls "talent acquisition" and what I call "getting a celebrity to write for xoJane."
My brain, usually a MULTITASKING MACHINE, is so 100% focused on this very vital, all-for-you job that I'm blanking on any me-centric updates and will get straight to a series of random questions that you can answer (or not!), take issue with, or offer a long list of alternatives to.
When was the last time you yelled?
When was the last time you were nervous?
Do you feel fairly paid (or graded) for the work you do?
Have you ever played competitive sports?
What's a word or phrase you just love the sound of, if any?
Do you have a valentine?
Do you consider yourself more glass-half-full or glass-half-empty?
Hopefully, now are you all primed and ready to talk to each other, advise each other, console or commiserate with each other in the lovely comment section you own below. A karmic present of some kind will go to any of you who leave at least one comment for every day of the year (so far) about anything that's been on your mind today or this week or this year (so far). So let's now declare this thread open — live in it in whatever way you might have in mind.
