weekend positivity round-up

13 Mar

You might have noticed there wasn’t a regular report on Friday. That’s fine; I was just off the internet, which is something you have to do now and then. My weekend was actually pretty decent; I got stuff taken care of on Friday (including getting the eldest a pretty awesome prom dress for almost nothing), […]

project positivity: thursday

09 Mar

Today wasn’t altogether bad either, at least so far (and as it’s past six and my dinner is cooking, I’m calling it a day). The fact that I made today my Friday helped a bit. I had a productive work session with my team at the office, wrapped up all my paperwork, answered a few […]

project positivity: wednesday

08 Mar

Today was actually pretty good day. Work was generally good; my 10am meeting was cancelled, which was wonderful, because it’s always a slog, and we’d spent two hours yesterday in an ad-hoc meeting discussing the same project anyway. I also spent some more time running some more numbers on my interminable budget nightmare, and proved […]

project positivity: day two

07 Mar

So Tuesday…work was kind of mixed; started out slow (though we accomplished a lot on the current “big” project) but wrapped up with a big rush of paperwork for a couple of hours, because somebody asked for something else on my resource request, so I had to fill out a bunch of new paperwork and […]

project positivity: day one report

07 Mar

After yesterday’s post about being positive about things, I spent a lot of the day thinking about how I go about doing it, and it kind of became a project. So, I’m going to take a couple of minutes every day this week to focus on the good stuff; the wins, however small, I’ve experienced; […]

the year that was, part one

26 Dec

Happy Boxing Day, everybody. Being that Christmas is behind us, and the last week of the year is beginning, it’s getting to be the time for reflection. So, I humbly present what you might call “a year in review”, of a sort, at least. To start things off, I’ll deal with this little space you’re […]

one more…

21 Dec

Sure, I wholeheartedly support the writers, and I don’t even have cable, but once again, xkcd rips thoughts right from my head and turns them into stick figure comic strip genius: click me for the funny! Click it; it’ll make it bigger and legible.  I promise.  Click the above link – no matter what I […]

friday random ten – “special guest DJ edition”

21 Dec

Since Colleen’s ipod is back in service after disappearing behind something or other in the kitchen for a while, it felt like time for a guest appearance; a little variety in the variety; a window into the mind of the other half of this partnership, if you will. Here’s what the shuffle function on Colleen’s […]

jam formation – random links and observations to keeps one’s spirits up

20 Dec

After a terribly crappy couple of days, I’ve managed to almost feel human for most of the day, thanks mostly to getting that meeting with the VIPs from the production floor about our (admittedly kickass) report out of the way. It even went kind of well. I know this feeling won’t last, though. Too much […]

Merry Pranksters – variations on the “laugh or you’ll cry” theme…

19 Dec

For today, unless I can come up with something else novel (and I just might; my standards of quality vary widely – I watch stuff on free hotel cable I’d never consider watching at home. For example, I hold the the Marriott corporation responsible for my viewing of several Hillary Duff films), I’m going to […]
