It's great to be employed!  I've been employed now for almost a year, the previous six having enjoyed the perks of entrepreneurship.  But not anymore!  Now I'm in the office by 9:00 every day, am behind on almost all of my assignments - I have assignments! - and someone is keeping track of how many days off I have in my "personal time bank."  This all may sound mundane, but it is really quite a joy.

I don't have to worry about whether the company will have enough cash to make payroll, or if "the system" crashes, or whether the taxes are being done correctly.  Or any of the other stuff that entrepreneurs are responsible for without having any idea of how to fix if it goes wrong.  Someone else worries about that.  I assume.  I don't even have to worry about whether anyone is worrying.  I'm in the middle of that magical employed state of mind where the company just seems so stable that it will last forever and all I have to worry about is the size of my bonus.


I wonder who I will have lunch with today?  TGIF.
