friday random elevenish – “spinning the wheel of bullshit” edition

22 Feb

It is Friday. ‘Twas a short week, coming off of a long weekend, made a day longer than expected as I spent Tuesday at home caring for a couple of women who I care about who were both running fevers. I don’t mind playing nurse now and then. That’s the dad life. I’ve spent considerable […]

Spent most of the work week on the phone; Wednesday involved the same meeting twice (which was a nice break over the usual three times); I got volun-told I’m managing a big procurement action that’s not mine because of my “program management experience.” Yay. Also, I […]

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 […]
