Management wanted to know my position on becoming a Data Person. Other call centers have a Data Person who crunches their numbers and does stuff like that, and if they are going to keep pulling me to do that sort of thing, they might as well have me do that.
My position on it is that I do like working with computers better than I like working with interviewers, and it's more within my skill set. Management does not want to inhibit my professional growth, though.
I feel I have more professional growth working with the computers. I pointed out my only schedule inflexibility, that being gotta be out by 5pm on Wednesdays for my writers' group.
This query is taking a long time. (That's why I'm taking notes on the brainstate: query running.) It has a lot of bad motherswyving joins. (Hee, hee, ancient profanity.)
I'm in ur dialer, cancellin' ur campaigns. *giggle*
I far prefer a description of the laugh to "LOL". Laughing Out Loud just tells you that it was not an internal laugh. ROTFLASC is rather more descriptive, and one can guess that it was a "Bwa-ha-ha-hee-hoo-hyuk-hyuk-ha-ha-ha!" rather than a suppressed snort of laughter like *snerk* would be. I would prefer for someone to respond to a quip of mine with "Ha!" or "Ha-ha-ha!" or something that indicates that they have a range of emotional states in the "laughing out loud" department.
Oh, I had not only a lot of joins, but they were bad. So. Heh. Bad me. No wonder it was taking for swyving ever.
Banged off a report really quick. I do like doing this stuff.
I am holed up in a monitor room doing stuff.
I had to attempt to explain why people are taking the Pluto thing so hard to Stressy College Chick. She didn't quite get it.
CNN's website will be showing a real-time stream of their coverage on September 11th, 2001, on the anniversary of that date. I don't think I'll be watching. It was not particularly avoidable that day. I sincerely doubt that I could have coped then without Darkside's arm to cling to, and since a replay of the TV coverage won't come with complimentary trip to see your best friend to watch it with, I'm opting out.
IMs of the bizarre:
Random MSNer: hey who is thi
Random MSNer: s
Miss Lunatic: Um, you're the one IMing me. Shouldn't you know that?
Random MSNer: umm no
Miss Lunatic: All right then. I can safely assume that since you don't know, you don't need to know. Have a nice life! *waves*
