We had another offsite today. Fortunately this one was only a little off site, so I didn't have to arrange more cabs, which is good, because I am kinda sick. I'm hoping I gave it to everyone else, and that next week will be nice and quiet.
Mostly the offsite was just to get the whole company together for our quarterly update meeting, but in this case we also got to spend an hour and a half doing a "values workshop". I am value fucking added, you guys, I am chock a block with values now.
Our official corporate values, btw, are Focus, Commitment, and Positivity. Well, I'm focused and committed, anyway. I refrained from pointing out to anyone that the ninety minutes we spent on that I could have spent writing historical Roman gay porn.
Which incidentally is up to 16k words, which I think shows admirable focus and commitment. Only nine thousand more words and I can submit that baby. Though it may run longer, which is the peril of setting the opening in late summer when the story can't end until early spring. Because Ides of March, that's why.
At any rate, I just washed down an Advil Sinus with a shot of Nyquil, so I'm going to sleep now.
