What a week! Due to Hurricane Sandy, our New York office has been closed all week, which meant (to oversimplify) that a substantial portion of the workload shifted to our LA offices, and we had to keep things running without having access to people with vital information that we need on a daily basis. And to start off the week, the power was out in our building on Monday, forcing us to re-deploy a department of 60 to various offsite locations in order to work, while still having to meet our normal deadlines. I feel like that guy up there on the flying bottle of wine, hanging on for dear life! But I can’t complain; some of our East Coast folks are still without power, working online whenever they can turn on their generators. Some aren’t even that fortunate.
I’ve been working upwards of 12 hours a day, between the office and checking/answering emails in the evenings and early mornings from home. I’ve barely had time to read any blogs, let alone blog myself. And knowing that some of my co-workers and friends are still struggling without power (and heat, and hot water) has made it hard to focus on the “peripherals” like clothing and style.
Thanks for bearing with me while I’ve been mostly MIA from the blogosphere this week. My plan is to regroup a bit over the weekend, and be back to regular posting by Monday. In the meantime, here are a couple of gratuitous Paris pictures…
