Life After A "Hurricane Day"

I feel like I just got rescued from being stranded on a desert island. Today was all about getting acclimated back into civilization from whatever world I was in yesterday.

Adult snow-days are weird as hell. You don't know how to treat them and you're basically freaking out the entire time thinking that you're wasting it. Basically from the time you wake up and the time you normally leave work, it's free time. So you encounter the dilemma of: how do you spend that time?

Since it's a hurricane, you're trapped inside and have limited amount of things to do. Here are Dub J's Cabin Fever guidelines:

-wake up right when "The Today Show" starts and try to stay awake until Kathie Lee and Hoda's skank ass come on

-go on Google Chrome's "Incognito Mode" and proceed to get weird

-make an omelette because frankly, that's the only thing I can make

-search out and make a concerted effort to watch "Maury" and "The Price is Right"

-play video games

-respond to some emails concerning "working from home"

-eat pizza and nap

-realize it's like 3pm and start freaking out

-"clean" room, get more depressed

-accept the inevitable, go on with rest of day post 6pm

I feel like Tom Hanks from Castaway thrust back into the office. A liability on all accounts. As a victim of Hurricane Sandy, pray for me.
