I nearly wrote that today’s work day was stifling and boring. It was, to begin with, but in the afternoon work got very interesting.
I will no longer be maintaining Intersect Software’s online help. That job will be transferred to a colleague, while I begin to develop Intersect’s online training products. This will begin with an online tour through the product, which I will write, and which may get posted on our website. It’s an exciting opportunity for me to develop a flashy little guide.
After work, I went shopping. I had received several gift certificates for my birthday, and this was the perfect opportunity to spend them. So, here’s what I got:
- Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind manga, Perfect Collection, volume 2
- Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind manga, Perfect Collection, volume 3
- Tenchi Muyo! manga volume 10. Now I just need to find volume 7, the official manga adaptation of Tenchi Muyo! in Love.
- Getting It Done, a book on “how to get things done when you’re not in charge”
- Socks and a new belt. It’s frustrating, having to spend
hard-giftedmoney on clothes.
- A new
leather-boundjournal, for writing about my garden. I’ve found that I can’t maintain my garden site. For some reason, a digital diary of daily diggings doesn’t do it. So, I’m going to try keeping a physical journal, and we’ll see what happens.
- Shrek, on DVD. A great flick.
- Soul Music, an animated version of the Terry Pratchett book. This was my first Pratchett novel, so I’m anxious to see how it worked out. I’m betting the animation was a big mistake, and it looks poor on the jacket cover, but at the very least I can pick it apart to see what doesn’t work.
