Where is the Justice?

While I was preparing for my trip to DC for the blogger's conference yesterday, Jeanine emailed me.

I'm going to Hawaii for work. Early January.

Now, I don't mean to be bitter, but... DC in December for two days versus Hawaii in January for a week. Who has the better job?

A friend said, Now, you can't compare apples to oranges.

I said this is not apples to oranges. This is a juicy, perfectly ripened mango that drips down your chin to a half eaten snickers bar you find under the car seat three years later.

No offense, Mike.

Another friend said, hey, at least you don't have a crabby boss.

First of all, Jeanine's boss is a lovely man. Very nice. Secondly, I'm my own boss and I am crabby. Often.

There is no justice in the world.

I need a better job.

Hey hey hey now! I heard you plan to meet up with fascinating people while you're in DC. We're no Rachel Maddow, but ... a half eaten snickers bar?

Sue, if I said anything nice about my trip... well... it would ruin the big whine.

you are not a half eaten snickers bar.

but DC compared to Hawaii? is.

and suzy, I already tried asking if I could go along. she said, "Ill be working"

and I said, hello? point me to the beach...

nixed.

Dave had the same reaction about her response to "Ill be working". What does that have to do with it. I would think it could be a "working trip" for you too lol.
