Colorful Fun Day (For A Workaholic)

There is nothing as fun as this.

I would say to guess what we are doing here, but I do that to you a
lot, so I will just tell you. We are testing backdrops for photo
shoots for this to-be-gorgeous new site we are launching March 1. (And
Annie, here in her enviable vintage skirt that she WILL bequeath to
me, is holding one of the cool invitations to Lauren Moffatt's fashion
show that we just got -- yeah, it is all just fabulous here all the
time.)

Two things:

It is so wonderful to get to hire young women and let them run around
doing fun, silly, exciting but productive things that make them feel
like, "I get PAID for this?!?!"

And two (related to the amount of fun I am having in my little office
today), I have this memory of this moment launching Sassy magazine,
sitting around this table in the President of the publishing company's
office talking about circulation, feeling almost lightheaded with
excitement about how awesome this life was. I have used the memory of
that feeling ever since as a barometer of whether or not a job
opportunity was right for me. Only this year did I realize that I
think that moment was my workaholic version of the dragon I am
chasing.

Okay, that might not be that interesting or something you can relate
to, but I thought it was worth my future thumb arthritis to share it
with you nonetheless. How is your workday, if you're having one? What
is your primary addiction, if any? I adore you.
