Three Things

Ganked from cahwyguy


Post 3 things you've done that you believe nobody else on your F-list has done.

Indulge in remorse if someone calls you out on a listed item.

1) Taken the mail ferry from Cape Town to the U.K. via St. Helena, Ascension Island, The Gambia, and Teneriffe, including a week spent on St. Helena.

2) Helped prepare a body for burial.

3) Been a test player for a game show under development.

So Typical

I had a conversation at work yesterday that explains a lot about why I get frustrated at times. Somebody noted that I hadn't mentioned the status of a troublesome component in my weekly report in a while and asked me about it. I explained to him that everything was going okay and updated him on the status.

After I finished, he asked me, "what does that component do, anyway?"

On the plus side, somebody who is usually evasive was helpful yesterday.

Today started out well. It only took me about 10 minutes to renew my building pass today. When I got to my office, I had a lovely surprise gift from a friend. (Beautiful yarn!)

But later on, I had to sit through a 5 hour teleconference. There was some good information, but I had to stand up and pace around my office to keep my body from merging with the chair.
