What Do You Do All Day - Slight Return

This is a great post from Web Worker Daily -- it crystallizes what is so confusing about working from home full time. I know my neighbors are particularly weirded out by the fact that I am able to work for an institution on the east coast whilst looking at mountains that exist in mountain time. People think you don't work at all, you're somehow doing something weird for a living, or I don't know whatall.

The fact is that I have an ordinary job with the usual job demands: meetings, cranking out stuff, dealing with colleagues delightful and annoying, phone calls, emails, the usual job scene. It's not strange.

Working in your slippers is perfectly normal and possible. It's okay.
