If you've been grumpy or upset during the last week, don't despair. Today you are officially permitted to be happy.

Yes, it's true. The FSRI has declared that today you can be as happy a day as you like. You can sing and hum while at work. You can do some goofy stuff send some crazy links, like stupid YouTube antics, around on office email. You can even bring a puppy or sphinx lizard to work (...if you have one!)

Today, plain and simple, is to enjoy the fact that you're at work, no matter what "those above you" have to say or think about it. You might have made a couple of friends over the years where you are; or, you might, at times, really get into what you do. In any case, today's the day to remind yourself that, sometimes it's okay. Sometimes things are going all right, and today's the day to recognize that fact.

For anybody still miserable where they work (or for those recently laid off), please regard the above statements as false or misleading.

I am pretty sure the corporate upity ups, or mukky muks or "c" level as in "Causing me not to have any fun at work" did not get the memo that it was employee appreciation day! I think it was convert your employees to 1935 wages and laws day and for the entire 2010 year. Well maybe next year they will be up for celebrating that....maybe

Well, I don't know what to say. Doesn't sound very fun. If you're not enjoying your current situation, then maybe it's time to try something new? You have to decide this for yourself.

Good luck and persevere!
