workaday Wednesday

Wednesday, January 17th, 2018

You know when you start a new job, and you’re all ‘gosh, I wonder how long it will take me to learn the process?’ And then you’re there for a bit and you start thinking ‘am I doing badly? do they not trust me enough to tell me the process? is it a secret?’ And […]

workaday Wednesday

Wednesday, January 3rd, 2018

I was checking the work fridge ‘n freezer combo yesterday to see if the half and half had been restocked (it had not), and I noticed that the freezer door is popping open when the refrigerator door is shut. And then I googled it, because why not? Apparently this is super common and not a […]

yankee swap report

Thursday, December 21st, 2017

*I traded to get my own gift back. (Thanks, person who opened my gift right before it was my turn, giving me a chance to do so! Sorry about the trade, but it was your boss who brought the wacky bagpiping Santa statue you ended up with, so maybe talk with her about that?) *The […]

three things

Wednesday, December 20th, 2017

1. Last night: electric candle in the window, behind a white shade. Stinkbug, on the bulb. Yeah, that shadow just about did me in when I saw it. 2. Today is our workplace yankee swap. So far I’m two for two in getting blankets. What will this year bring??? 3. Another Christmas fic, Harry Potter […]

We have periodic safety refresher courses at my workplace, which range from ‘you don’t have to go to this, but we have to offer it’ to ‘show up or we’re going to track you down at your desk and watch you view the recorded presentation.’ Last year? Two years ago? Anyway, the last one I […]

caturday notes

Saturday, October 28th, 2017

1. 5K day! My phone says it is currently 36F degrees, with 100% humidity. It is not actually predicted to rain today. To be fair, I have not confirmed these weather conditions by actually looking outside. My curtains are currently firmly in place, because A) sunrise isn’t for another half hour or so, and this […]

workaday Wednesday

Wednesday, October 25th, 2017

As of this week, it’s official — same company, new job title! They let me keep the same phone number, but it hasn’t meant much so far because I don’t currently have a phone. (The desk is so much cleaner without one! I like it!) It’s temporary, of course. I guess they want people to […]

time to think about something else

Sunday, October 22nd, 2017

My work schedule is changing again, shifting back an hour earlier. Which is fine, that’ll work out, but it has led me to think far too much about the exact details. Should I get up earlier? How much earlier? What about driving? Should I change my route? How will traffic be different? What other ways […]

workaday Wednesday

Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

It’s training week! And meeting day! And Wednesday! (Yeah, basically I’m just writing anything that might make me excited about going to work today.) I’m not *not* excited, but it’s chilly and there’s frost on the car and the blankets look so warm and inviting… But I have a plan! The plan is this: 1. […]
