Whenever I am at work I am always thinking "This is ridiculous, what am I doing here, I'm in the wrong story" from Into The Woods. (Boy I can't wait until Sept. when I will be teaching dance full time:)) What lyrics run through your head when you are stuck at work?

I don't especially look forward to the workplace.

Well, two things go through my mind.

From Little Night Music, Madam Armfelt's referal to being "Extravagantly overstaffed".

And to paraphrase Strichy: "And you wonder why I drink!"
PEACE.

How about the obvious, "Well it's been a long, been a long, been a long, been a long day"

The laughter of the young a foreign sound
The splendor of the world less captivating
I am waiting"

It's just a little bitty pissant country place, nothing too high tone...
If anyone ever tells you that you put too much Parmesan cheese on your pasta, stop talking to them. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.

"I spend my life accounting, with figures and such (unhappy), to what is my life amounting, it figures not much (unhappy). I have a secret desire hiding deep in my soul, it sets my heart afire to see me in this role...."- I Wanna Be a Producer.

Although I work in retail, not an office, but it still applies when you've been doing the same stupid monotonous thing for years!

"At the end of the day, it's another day over. And the shirt on your back doesn't keep out the chill"

When it's 90 degrees out side and I have to wear a sweater because someone puts the AC on so cold your teeth chatter....

It is too darn hot sometimes without AC.

"I want to be like everyone else, but richer and more acclaimed. Worshipped and celebrated, pampered and loved, to see those who've laughed feeling ashamed. A glorious frantic, adoring response... the same as everyone wants."

Hehe, that runs through my head when I'm just walking down the street. re: re: re: Working too hard :)

I remember when I had a 7 hour job being a security guard at Mass Moca (a "modern" art museaum) and to make the time pass, I would sing the opening from Into The Woods over and over - and each time I would estimate 12 minutes...so after about 6 times, an hour would have past. It was torture!
I'm as jumpy as a virgin at a prison rodeo!
