Well, no. But I *will* be partying with funeral directors this evening.

Lucky me, my bosses have required that I go to the Central VA Funeral Directors' monthly meeting tonight. An hour of socializing followed by dinner. I'm seriously thinking about skipping dinner. The venue is maybe a mile or two from my house, so I could just go home. But I'm so damn responsible when it comes to work that I doubt I will.

As much as I've enjoyed talking to many Central VA funeral directors on the phone, I truly don't feel a need to meet them. But I was not given a choice. And given that by this summer, this job will change so that I'm actually out of the office and meeting people, this is kinda like a warmup to that.

Let me say it again: In no way to I care to return to a regular reporting job that requires leaving the office (paying for more gas than I use now, putting more miles on my car) and running around like a chicken with my head cut off.

I am *SO* looking forward to next Tuesday, when I meet with the career counselor. I saw my therapist this morning, and we agreed that I'd come back to see her once I finished the career counseling process. I'm really hoping that a month or two from now will find me setting goals and moving toward really leaving this place -- whether it's for another newspaper or an entirely new career. I really don't want to be here anymore.

An interesting thing happened to me at the funeral directors' meeting tonight: One of the guys had found my journal!

I am amused. Highly amused. Especially since he knows who Ellen is -- the coworker I complain about every Tuesday.

But it's not just for his benefit that I say that the meeting was much more interesting than I thought it would be. I actually enjoyed meeting folks face-to-face. And leaving the office to do work -- I forgot how much more fun this job is OUTSIDE of the office!

On a related note, I kinda got headhunted today. I have no details as of yet, but I am open-minded about opportunities that could come my way. At the very least, it was nice to be asked.

All in all, it was a much better day than I thought it would be. I actually had fun today.
