So, where was I?
Oh, right, Tuesday. The day began with a trip to the Post Office, but all the way there, and as I was leaving, the craving for cigarettes was huge. I made it through Monday with a patch, but I couldn't find the patches on Tuesday.
So I broke down and bought a pack, opened it up, and lit one up.
God, it was incredible. OK, if you were never a smoker, I'm sure you can't imagine how smoking can be appealing. Suffice it to say that if you are addicted, the feeling you get from having one after being deprived for a day is so amazingly good, your day has to be good from there.
At least I made that pack last two days, finishing off the last one tonight before posting this. And I found two patches, so I'm good through Friday (there should be more around here somewhere)... but I'm getting ahead of myself.
Anyway... off to work on Tuesday, and as I said before, I did a bit more work on that automotive tabloid publication idea. Tuesdays are slow lately, so I had plenty of time to do that tweaking. That morning, when I came in, I told my manager about the mock-up, and she said we'd take it to the classified advertising manager later in the day. She was busy the entire day, however, and after 5, I mentioned it to the assistant manager, and we brought it over to the classified advertising manager.
She loved it, and the three of us took it to the advertising manager, who loved it, too. This should definitely happen, although I don't know quite when it will occur. They'd been thinking about doing something like this already, but since they were just talking about it, it sounds like this should jump-start the process.
Today, Wednesday, I found myself with lots of time, too... so I mocked up an eight-page bicycling tabloid, which nobody has seen yet. But again, I'm getting a bit ahead of myself.
Tuesday we also learned that the advertising services assistant was leaving, and that if we knew anyone who would be good for the job, to get them to apply. Jessi knows a few people who are looking for a different job, and she talked to one of them about it... we'll see if they actually apply.
Let's see... anything else I didn't mention? Well, we did watch an episode of "Cold Case" today... we'd been looking for a new show to add to our watching, and that one sounded interesting (what can I say, we're finding ourselves having watched nearly all the Law and Order episodes, and Monk's only on once a week).
