I'm tired just thinking about it

I swear that I have the most hard working Series Producer in Television but also the most insane.

Don't get me wrong, she is an absolutely lovely woman and I do adore working for her but she makes me feel as if I slack like there is no tomorrow. (Well to be totally honest with you I do do the bare minimum at times ...)

I left the office 15 minutes earlier than usual yesterday because I was literally falling asleep at my desk from exhaustion due to my climbing weekend. I got in this morning at 0958am and had 22 emails in my inbox! About 90% are from her and were all sent between the hours of 1750pm and 1207am.

Yes ladies and gentleman my crazy Series Producer was still sending emails at 1207am.

At 1001am this morning she calls my mobile

Miss M: Hello Workaholic, I hope you're feeling better today. (She lost her voice yesterday - perhaps that was the reason for the masses of emails?)

Workaholic: A bit better thanks. I'm just on my way in, running a bit late. Can I please talk you through who is coming to the viewings next week?

She then proceeded to go through the stories from the show and who was coming with her to the viewings which aren't happen for another week for 10 minutes.

Miss M: Great (total pointless conversation) I'll see you when I get in

Miss M heads off to make some coffee.

Now people I swear she wandered in 3 minutes later.

The woman phoned me up to tell me she was running 14 minutes late and proceeded to talk me through things that could wait like 5 DAYS AT LEAST!

I do love the woman but she is a total workaholic.

I hope I never turn into her.

crazy woman... tell her to get a life :) in a good way of course hehe

The Divine Miss M said...

I'm considering it.

I did rag on her for emailing at that time when she got in, especially as she is sick!

She says she just can't let go

The Blonde Blogshell said...

Good grief!! She needs a hobby or a friend...maybe a man... maybe some sleep too! Emails after midnight, um... NO!!!

The Divine Miss M said...

She's a lesbian ...

And she has a woman :P

she's a power lesbian!! LOL

I like workaholics. I used to be a workaholic when I had no life (hahaha), but I was never that compulsive. Yikes!

happy snapper said...

Wow, that is insane! I couldnt be like that. There are times, that I unfortunately have to work overtime, due to deadlines, but on normal occasions, when the clock strikes 5pm, Im outta there!

Oh, and I see you also fall asleep at your desk Miss M. I have had a few occassions where Ive just about had to remove computer keys from my cheeks. I would've gone home early too :)

The Divine Miss M said...

@pdx - Power lesbian yes! But absolutely lovely warm wonderful woman, just works too hard!

@happy snapper - I'm the same, out of here ASAP (6pm for me) unless I have to work late which does happen fairly often I admit.

Yup, I even drooled once ;)

happy snapper said...

Ha ha!! NO ways! you drooled? :)
Classic. Better not let that happen while Edit Producer is around.
Ooh, which reminds me...have you seen him or heard from him since your lunch?

Miss P said...

I sometimes think I am that woman... is it truely so sad?

Lopz said...

Dude, she's going to unravel at some point and it won't be pretty. If you ever suspect you're turning into her, get rid of all electronic equipment and barricade yourself in a fully stocked wine bar for a week. That should cure you of the urge to overwork.

The Divine Miss M said...

@snapper - Ya we were just engaging in some light email banter. He said that lunch sometime would be good ;)

@miss p - I'm SOMETIMES here but there really are better things in life than just constant working! Get a hobby girl ;)

@lopz - sounds like a plan, care to join me?!

Don't be concerned. She'll get plenty of rest after the ulcer and coronary.

The Divine Miss M said...

@happy snapper - *big bounce* I KNOW!!!

@kyk - So true. So true.

happy snapper said...

Big Bounce!

Im kinda having overlaps in my mind from your post and mine...Big bounce just makes me think of all the fat slapping goin down. ha ha!

Big Bounce indeed! Without the jiggle ;)

The Divine Miss M said...


This is my blog - take your fat tainted post away!


happy snapper said...

ha ha ha ha!

Just spreading a little flubber round for extra love :P

happy snapper said...

I think you should get her to start a blog. That would get her to not work as much!
I mean look at us...... :P

The Divine Miss M said...

@snapper - Ye that would be cool, she'd have some FUNNY stories!!!

happy snapper said...

Hmm.....maybe there's a way to get her on here then?
FUNNY stories are always welcome :)

leez said...

If she were to start her own blog then she would probably have multiple posts everyday.

If I were you I would time your emails and have them automatically sent to her at bizarre times enquring about nothing in particular.

The Divine Miss M said...

@snapper - NOOOO I might not be annoymous anymore then!

@leez - Can you do that???

leez said...

I think so... Will ask my new IT friend.

happy snapper said...

True true...scrap that idea.

She sounds like me 40 years ago! I am so glad I saw reality 30 years ago and cooled it.
