This is not starting out to be a particularly well-organized month. Drat it.


On the other hand, I do wind up doing finances best when I can play with it online. Having auto lender and primary bank be one and the same (and having it all coordinated under one login!) is going to be very convenient for making sure I get that loan paid down as fast as possible. Being able to make quick electronic transfers the moment I see that I have some spare funds is a Very Good Thing.


The office said that I am to be trained on a system of the Queen Bee's, in preparation for the Queen Bee moving on to another workplace. I am distinctly flattered that I am chosen as her successor.


I got more St. John's Wort yesterday. I had been low for a few days and out for at least two days. I must remember that while I am not doing well at recovering from things that would be only slightly emotionally jarring, that this too shall pass. I do not like it when I go around all day obsessed with something that I should be able to brush off for the span of the workday because I am able to do nothing about it! I do not like it at all!


Linguistic pet peeves: "In lieu of May month end close coinciding with the Memorial Day holiday in the US; please remember to complete your timesheet for this week before you leave for the extended weekend. " Anybody see what is wrong with this?

Let's try some substitution. "Instead of May month end close coinciding with the Memorial Day holiday in the US; please remember to complete your timesheet for this week before you leave for the extended weekend." Doesn't make a fucking bit of sense. I'm not sure where you learned that "in lieu of" means "because of", dear person who sends out corporate e-mails, but it is wrong. Please re-learn ASAP that "in lieu of" means "instead of" or "in place of".



Snarky Lady saw my car in the parking lot, and immediately knew it had to be mine: who else would have a Darth Vader window decal? Darkside reported identifying my car based on the same marking. (That and the rainbow on the back and the star on the rearview mirror, but he didn't mention those in front of his mom.)


Today looks like a very quiet day on the job front. I already have comic fodder, in the form of "iSupervise" -- using your iPod on the job is Not Recommended. Really.
