Woke up this morning and realized with a little dread in the pit of my stomach: I’m sick. I rolled over and took a quick inventory, letting myself wake up and gauging exactly how bad I felt. Okay, only “sick” in a general sense of malaise, slightly sore throat, slightly upset stomach, etc. Stress sickness, in other words. So I fired off an e-mail to various folks at work, telling them I was sick and would […]

Tonight was another complete waste. Work was exhausting; it seemed that everyone in my group was fighting fires that flared as soon as I stepped into the building. Nothing serious; just people who had to get this build done or other such things. Frustrating, since yes, we’re supposed to help programs with their builds, but when every build is an emergency, that’s not fair to CM, […]

I’m sitting on my couch, waiting for the UPS guy to arrive. As I’ve been doing for the past six hours. I arrived home yesterday to find that UPS had tried to deliver the Summer Storm posters, but I wasn’t home at 3:00 (amazingly enough). The delivery rep left a note that he’d be back sometime after 2:00 today. So I got off work early, came home, and have been waiting ever since. […]

Briefly: Productive and tiring day at work, interesting RPG session, and rain. First, work. Not sure how to write this so that it won’t sound incredibly boring, but here goes: I’ve had trouble keeping track of things at work. Oh, I could reply to an e-mail, or make up a sticky to remind myself of an ongoing project, or write in an appointment on my calendar. But I have quite a few ongoing projects (most of them […]

As I’ve mentioned earlier on this blog, Saalon came up Friday night. He was here until Saturday night, and my goodness did I have a good time with him. He’s just so easy to talk to, and full of interesting things to say. We both attended an Otherspace meeting, during which I interviewed a potential new animator. She wanted to know our process, pay, etc., and seemed a bit shocked that […]

It’s always a bit of a shock to walk out of your place of work and see multiple fire trucks at the next building. Especially when that building is actually the main building of your place of work. Which is what happened today. Two fire trucks, plus several small support vehicles, like little dogs yipping at the heels of the Big Dogs. Lights blazing, of course. Turns out an A/C unit went on the fritz, […]

Hot. Hot, hot, hot. I went out for a walk today at lunch, and it was like stepping into a pizza oven. Fine day otherwise, though; clear and sunny. And hot. Spent most of the day preparing for Saalon‘s arrival on Friday. Then he called and told me he couldn’t stay on Sunday, so I’ll have at least that day to get chores done. Perhaps I didn’t need to rush as much, then, though […]

Spent the day staring down a document at work. I just couldn’t muster up the courage or interest to power through it, so I whittled away at it all day. Could have done it in a few hours if I’d just gotten down to it. I have sleep like al Qaeda has a conscience, though. I’ve spent the past several nights staring at the ceiling for hours, tired but unable to drift off. Then […]

Long, busy day. But a good one, as I’m apt to append. Work was pleasantly busy. I was prepared for grim battle with a document that required much less change than I’d originally thought, so by the end of the day I’d updated half of it. Since I’d thought the document would take me at least the rest of the week, that felt good. I also bought the first disc of the anime series Kodocha, […]

There are days when I love computers, and days when my computers respond to that love by biting my hand. I decided recently to shift my weekly duties around so that I’d have one day per week free from any chores. I could still fill that day with projects as I saw fit that day, but I’d have nothing scheduled for that day. Yesterday (Sunday) was my first attempt, […]
