friday random elevenish: “sick; no report” edition

03 May

It’s honestly not been a great week; as I mentioned previously this week and elsewhere, I’ve been sick, anxious, and waiting for The Powers That Be™ to make a freaking decision regarding my projects at work. My days have been primarily work, sleep, work, sleep, brief important people, work, sleep, all while having my building […]

i honestly have no idea

22 Apr

After getting word a few weeks back that the huge project I’ve been working on for the last two years was having it’s go-live date bumped to the right…again, with a vague “July…maybe?” indicator for when we’d finally deploy this new functionality, over the last week or so, the general tenor of discussion around the […]

less than optimal

19 Apr

Today has not been particularly awesome. I woke up quite sore from seemingly overdoing the exercise. Oh well. After the morning ablutions, I checked the messages, learned that the wife of a dear friend in the fandom/music community passed away on Thursday evening. Kinda went downhill from there, with all kinds of little things tripping […]

friday random elevenish: “70 percent people I’ve shared a stage with” edition

12 Apr

So…I spent most of Thursday waiting for my office phone to get fixed. A problem I reported to the trouble ticket gods three weeks ago. Now, I have a dial tone, but no phone that works. It seems my organization is on the cusp of changing over to a new Voice over IP system, but […]

friday random elevenish: “buzzword bingo” edition

01 Mar

It honestly feels like we should have hit Friday a week and a half ago. Work’s been work, as it tends to be. Nothing special; the keep paying me, so I keep coming, though I’ve had to stay late a couple of days this week, and got voluntold into a four-hour remedial “how not to […]

friday random elevenish – “fawm time” edition

01 Feb

it’s Friday. Thank $diety. I’ve been struggling with work all week; swinging from angry to frustrated to despondent and then back again. So many conference calls full of people who can’t be bothered to listen to reason, logic, or, frankly, anything. I’ve also felt like hell physically. This cold snap is playing hell with my […]

end of the line

02 Jan

Today, January 2, is my last day of my so-called “Christmas Break”. All told, it was some time away from work. I got some stuff done, got some books read, played a little music, and, I guess, didn’t think too hard about project deadlines for a couple of weeks, but at the same time, it […]

friday random elevenish: “can’t breathe” edition

30 Nov

Greetings from Friday morning. It’s been a long week, not the least of which because I’ve spent it primarily on the phone while sounding like a frog, or blowing my nose, or coughing up yellow/green mucus, all while surrounded by freezing temperatures, sometimes on the inside (my office yesterday was weird). Except for Tuesday, when […]

friday random elevenish: “triggered” edition

28 Sep

It is, at least the last time I looked at a calendar (for today,not 1982). Just checked the lower right corner of the computer screen. Yep, Friday. Anyway, yesterday was strangely emotional for me. I was moved by Blasey Ford’s testimony (I was tearing up at her reading her opening statement), and I actually had […]

unpleasant old feelings

27 Sep

I’ve probably been paying more attention to the current Supreme Court business than is healthy, and the salaciousness of everything is certainly increasing the coverage this particular reality show being put on by our government is getting. Mostly, though, I’m hating the fact that here, in 2018, we’re where we are as a society, that […]
