Seriously? Is It Just Me…

Seriously, I’m busy…doing nothing?

Posted on: January 25, 2011

Apparently my life has become a touch out of control lately, as I’m rather busy running around frantically doing…absolutely nothing. I wish I could say I have been busy writing a book, volunteering for a charity or cleaning out my closets but alas I’ve done none of those things.

If I’m perfectly honest, I have been spending the majority of my free time working my way (successfully I might add) through the five phases of the highly addictive mobile phone game, Angry Birds*. Oh, and I knocked out the Angry Birds’ season edition as well, but that’s hardly anything to boast about given that I should be posting a blog every week.

Angry Birds Addiction

Just Say No!

Unfortunately, my addiction to Angry Birds has caught up with me, as I’ve now waited until the last minute to pull together my presentation on “social media for today’s financial leaders” that I’m expected to give next week at my former/new employer, Bank Director’s, annual M&A conference in Scottsdale.

Of course, I’m panicking because I have no idea what to expect with a room full of mostly senior white men who have spent the majority of their careers successfully leading financial institutions rather than effectively using technology to communicate.

So this week, instead of spending the level of quality time I require on my blog posts, I’ve decided I need to focus on what the hell I’m going to say to these guys so that I can sound relatively intelligent. Therefore, while I’m off in sunny (Hallelujah, I get to see the sun again — don’t hate) Arizona next week, feel free to read a post or two from some bloggers who I’ve connected with over the past few months:

For you foodies who like to eat with your eyes and ears

4 All the Single Ladies
Catch up on her friend turned boyfriend turned friend saga

Next Stop, Happiness
The personal journey of a woman coming to terms with her destiny

Penelope Trunk’s Brazen Careerist
A blog version of a reality TV show train wreck – loves it!

Okay, so now I’ve got to work on my presentation…oh wait, you know what would help me focus? Knowing what I’m going to wear during my session because really that is more important than what I have to say, seriously?

Luci taught me how to play Angry Birds Sunday afternoon.
I had to decide if I wanted to play the game or see my grandson. It was a really hard decision, but I put the game down, and “downloaded” it when I got home. LOL!
I hope the snow does not follow you, it’s been known to do that you know 🙂

Thanks for the shout out! 🙂 And, good luck with your presentation in Arizona! p.s. I might need to look into this Angry Birds game; sounds fun!

A game I have never heard of -how did that happen? And I thought I was a master of wasting time playing games but alas there is one I’m not familiar with; well that won’t last. Thanks for the “game” tip and enjoy Arizona; I’m sure the men will enjoy you even if they don’t hear a word you say – SERIOUSLY!

I hope everyone enjoys Angry Birds — just be prepared to lose hours of your life to those pesky animated birds.

I have lost many an hour to Angry Birds. My latest obsession is the Word Up game. Ah, technology. Thanks so much for the foodie shout-out! And more power to ya on the public speaking. My palms are sweaty just thinking about it. Yikes!
