running, bomb tech

I'm so glad Monday is over.

I really could have used some not-being-40-miles-away-from-my-best-friend today.

Voluntary 12 hour shift at work was the good part.
bleeding, Ryoko

This afternoon's dose of updating.

I have come up with a nickname for the woman in Fulfillment who manages to drive me bats without even trying. It is "< apples", because she has less sense than God gave little green apples. (It helps that it's a pun on her name.)

12:22 PM 2/5/2007
Meetings next week. holy crap.

http://www.pandora.com/music/song/237c3767a855eb63 is one of those hidden-track songs; I'm not sure if Pandora codes those different than other songs.

2:01 PM 2/5/2007
Still waiting on the numbers from the office. I have a number of choices of things to do next, but I'm not sure what comes next. Ack.

2:38 PM 2/5/2007
Stuff is being done. Still waiting. They're having trouble in there doing their thing. I think I'm knocking off for lunch right now, because I think I'm hungry or something.

http://www.pandora.com/stations/2214e4c62c52ad3af2b17664a9b973367202097cac2b2cb2 has 4 thumbs-down for Bob Dylan. I thought it was supposed to stop playing Bob Dylan after the 2nd one, considering that he's not seeding or thumbed-up at all?

Upper-level management shows up tomorrow. I have a conceptual headache and a vile mood, because it's stats I'm not prepared with yet that he's going to need, and I'm behind on paperwork due to not getting my numbers anything like on time. And they're bad numbers too, because shit got changed on us.

4:06 PM 2/5/2007
Vile numbers. Vile mood. One hour left before I need to leave. WANT HUG FROM BEST FRIEND IN UNIVERSE.

Oh, and Pandora stopped working a few minutes ago.

4:31 PM 2/5/2007
FUCK.

When Pink Shirt Guy came through asking about a white Neon, he didn't see me and I didn't see him. It was Vash, all right.

The other car that hit him while he was parked sustained more damage, with a taillight and some fiberglass coming off. Vash got shoved to the side, dented, scratched, and has some new red paint, but there seems to be no damage to the underside, he's a front wheel drive, and nothing fell off but some paint chips.

oh yeah, I'm having a great fucking day.

Notes from Today

11:15 AM 2/6/2007
"The Drinking Song", Moxy Fruvous, sounds in my head like it needs to be sung as a
round just to see what it will sound like. And I don't have that many audio
processors. I can't hear it overlapped like that on my own. Alas.

11:31 AM 2/6/2007
I would have to construct the thing note by note and figure out where the overlap
would be in order to hear it looped over itself without actually doing it.

I wonder how many people do have multiple audio processors in their head, and
whether that has any overlap with a) good musicianship, and b) schizophrenic
symptoms of weird audio in head.

12:34 PM 2/6/2007
Network is ungodsly slow. I have run out of the vanilla/caramel tea that smells so
good and have moved back to the old standard, black & orange.

3:02 PM 2/6/2007
What the hell. It's on. I need the social time as much as I need the alone-time, and
social time is going to be good for me right about now.

We may have to play cellphone-tag with Myrrh, though.

Note to self: get wireless card working reliably on Allegra.

3:14 PM 2/6/2007
Snarky Lady says I have the hallmarks of a good manager because I know how to give
away power. I'm a developer, not a coder, so once I get responsibilities, I'm
looking to hand them off to someone else once I understand their function, and work
with meta-data and innovating new things.

Middle management collects things and won't give them up to other people, so they
don't rise.

4:17 PM 2/6/2007
E-mailed Management. Not going to have the stats tomorrow. This is graceless and no
fun and I'm so unprepared. But I'm frelling competent at what I do.

4:49 PM 2/6/2007
Hooray for scheduling! I hope tonight is going to be a whole lot more relaxing than
the start of the week has been. Alas that Darkside won't be able to make these
nights. Have asked Ecchi-chan to grab the nori and the mat.
