Where has the month gone? I can’t believe I actually managed to type a blog back on January 5th, what with my hand still being really sore from surgery but I guess being pissed off helped. Thanks to Witchy and some homeopathic remedies, I’m healing well and will be back into the blogging chair soon.
Since then, I’ve had a blog running around in my head about a company that displays customer service that is the antithesis of my recent bad experience with Pizza Pizza but have not written it yet as I’m trying not to strain my wrist more than I have to.
However, I saw my dear friend Witchy yesterday and my new instructions (aside from increase this dosage, keep doing the other, rub castor oil on your arm, etc.) include: stop for a bit every day and either call a friend, write a blog or do something creative …well, I guess writing a blog can be creative but she meant draw a picture or do something artsy.
Well, I would love to pick up a pencil or piece of charcoal or conte and do just that, but I am intimidated. I don’t have a problem using a pencil to try to draw an image of a person, but that’s not what Witchy wants. She wants me to be expressive and uninhibited and boldly creative and I am, to quote the title of an art course at Luc Studio, a “terrified beginner”. Therefore, starting in March, I am signed up for the course “Drawing & Painting for the Terrified Beginners“.
It’s funny that I’m so intimidated as I come up with creative solutions for my clients all the time, but pick up a piece of charcoal and apply to paper….shudder. So for now, I will call a friend or write a blog …or possibly just journal and keep my thoughts to myself.
But as soon as I feel able, you will receive my blog about Oust-a-Mouse and it’s incredible President, Jennifer Cambray. I hope I emulate Jennifer’s level of customer service at The Virtual Alternative, but I’m not sure that’s even possible. More on this soon, but for now, back to fixing a database.
