The car works again…

On Sunday afternoon, I dug my bike out of the basement and rode a few miles to Autozone. I plopped down on a jump start kit. (It’s heavy, so it wasn’t easy riding back from the store with that swinging from my handlebars.) I charged it up and the next morning…nothing. Damn thing didn’t work. […]

Due dates…

We have a department meeting today about due dates. *rolls eyes* Great. It’s going to be one of those times when they talk generally about procedures and blah blah blah…but everyone’s eyes are on me. I’m going to be sinking low into my chair and wishing I was anyplace else. The dentist’s office, hitting my […]

Impatience! ARRRGH!

So I’m working on this career site for some stupid client that’s due today. Then I get asked if I’ve finished one that’s due Tuesday. …so (as I had planned to do anyway) I go and do that after I finish the one due today. As I’m about to finish that, I get asked why […]

Foxes, Pain, and Dizziness: Why I Shouldn’t Leave the House

I spent most of Saturday plowing through the entire season of┬áDigimon Tamers looking for sound clips that would be appropriate for our performance at Katsucon. I think I’ve got everything I need. I’d better…since I recorded about 40 minutes of sound bytes to make a 2 minute skit. I’m going to edit them together tonight […]

Imagine Whirled Peas

I went to another cousins’ dinner tonight at Elly’s. Tonight’s adventure was split pea soup. Ugh. I hate peas. Oh well, it actually wasn’t too bad. Better than fish. Pretty busy at work this week with the new version of the site in progress. I’m being quite productive. Wheee! Of course, the more I look […]

Layoffs…again.

Monster usually does layoffs only on Tuesdays…but they let some people go today. Pretty unexpected. Some friends of people in my department too. They seemed to mostly be in Product Management…which doesn’t make a lot of sense to do now…right in the middle of a major product change. (There will be a big site redesign […]

I hate timesheets

At our weekly department meeting yesterday, Christine told us that we’d need to start filling out timesheets daily. ARGH! That’s one of the things I absolutely hated having to do when I worked for The Monster Board four years ago. Except for the occasional consulting job that required me to count my hours, I have […]

Yeah, shame on me. Whatever.

I got a smack on the wrist today for coming in about 20 minutes later than usual without calling to say I’d be in later. Yeah, I overslept a little bit and then discovered I had to scrape my car when I got out to it this morning. Blah. Got my Christmas presents from Lizz. […]
