As many of you may know, I have been furloughed two days a month for the last six months. Our furlough schedule has no real rhyme or reason that I can figure out. It’s not like its every other Friday (although some months it is). For instance this month I had the 8th off and I have the 19th off. In March my furlough days are the 23rd, 24th, 25th, and 26th (this month gets four days to make up for the fact that we didn’t get any furlough days in July). See- no pattern or anything.
Anyway I was telling a coworker last week that I have this constant worry that one of these furlough days I am going to forget and show up at work- and what’s worse is that I will be sitting in my office and not even realize I shouldn’t be working that day because most of the people on my floor are faculty and they have a completely different furlough schedule than I do.
Now you are probably wondering what on earth this has to do with Tony Stewart…well Office Depot had Tony come up with his top 10 organizational tips- all based on items that can be bought from Office Depot…. First one on his list?
- “I have a frequent nightmare about showing up at the wrong race track during the NASCAR season…so, yes, I WILL take that new day planner, thank you very much.”
Kind of similar to mine- except I never worry about what race track I am going to – those are my vacations. If you go to their facebook page now you can get yourself a 10 percent discount coupon for Office Depot on organizational supplies too. I already got mine- because as I have mentioned one of my weaknesses is office supplies (seriously I can not go into Office Depot and leave empty handed. Same thing goes for book stores). Defintely check out their facebook page because it’s humorous if nothing else…I mean seriously- check out this tip:
- I might not know how to play the accordion…but Office Depot accordion folders with expanding pockets? Those I know and love. A lot.
Because this picture is the freaking best (pre)birthday present a (female) Smoke fan could ask for:
Well and maybe this if anyone is looking for suggestions for my birthday (on the 14th):
You know…just in case you were out of ideas or something.
