Fantasy Everything

My husband told me tonight that I had to sign up for his Fantasy Football league otherwise there would be an odd number of teams and nobody would get to play.

I am not a football person. The extent of my interest in the game involves wearing cute football tee's and eating cheese dip. Otherwise, I am just not interested.

But because I am a good wife, I have agreed to play Fantasy Football this year. Woot. (FYI-I named my team "Forced To Play." And I picked a purple helmet for my avatar because it was the prettiest.)

In other news, I am desperately trying to finish writing an article for work that is sucking my life force out of me pore by pore. And, yes, I'm being dramatic, but good lord you would be too if you had to write about this stuff for a living. Whenever I get tasked with a project like this one I just want to explode out of my body and send a different piece of me to every corner of the world to experience some new exhilarating adventure.

Does anyone else ever feel that way? Maybe minus the exploding part? Bueller?

Anyways, that's why I need to finish this article. So I can stop daydreaming of spontaneously combusting and sending my big toe off to Venice and my elbow to Paris.

Wish me luck.

I'm with you on the exploding part. Every time I have a new project for work, it feels so overwhelming that I use overly dramatic statements such as "I want to die" and "This will be the death of me" and, yes even, "I might combust if I continue this."

You are always funny. I just love it. :)

I hope you get your article done soon so that you can give your mind a little solace.

I love your FF name...it rules.

I'm playing again this year too, but only b/c I suck so bad that it makes me laugh. Last year, I came in dead last...to the point where I TRIED to lose. Now I have the first round draft pick (but can't draft b/c I'm tutoring...hello, auto-draft).

Maybe your boss's boss's great-aunt lives in Paris and really wants to meet a prized piece of you, hence the combustion-inducing article assignments.

Or maybe you're just a really good writer.

Hey, on your next project, send a little piece of yourself to CT so I could meet ya! :)

Yes.... minus the exploding part :-)

I write different versions of the same thing over and over again at my job. I think that's why I blog... To write something different! Hope you pull through :)

Great team name!

I had one of those days yesterday where I just wanted to scream...and I actually did. It was an awful day at work...I was frustrated with people trying to get answers from me for something in JANUARY and I'm still trying to wrap things up for a game I had last week! I got bit by a spider the night before and was secretly wishing it would do something to me to put me out on disability until January. I'm better today...more focused, more positive. I had to have a serious pep talk with myself last night and again this morning...so I hope you did not combust!

Wait, football includes cheese dip? WHY DID NO ONE TELL ME THIS SOONER???
