road construction update

Thursday, June 30th, 2016

For the time being, road work seems to be “finished” along my route to work. The signs and cones are gone, at least, so either it’s finished or a particularly persistent thief has been hard at work. The most noticeable change is at one of the merges — it’s a merge in from the left-hand […]

workaday Wednesday

Wednesday, June 29th, 2016

I told a lie at work yesterday. In my defense, I was confused, and I still think there was a possibility I ended up in some weird alternate universe for a few minutes. Okay, backstory: like many workplaces, mine likes to hand out trophies sometimes. My sense is that this mainly makes the committees that […]

It’s been so sunny lately that it was a shock to wake up today to clouds, even though they’ve been in the forecast for days. On the plus side, I think I’m gradually re-learning how to sleep in hot weather. Also, thanks to the clouds, I can have all the shades open and actually be […]

I am definitely […]

yes good

Thursday, June 23rd, 2016

For some reason, facebook has stopped telling me how many new posts I have waiting. I find myself surprisingly happy with this change. When I used to visit facebook, there was this background pressure to go actually look at all those new posts. Now that it doesn’t tell me if there’s anything new or not, […]

workaday Wednesday

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2016

Note to self: However long it’s been since your last scheduled vacation day, it has been Too Long. Note to Comcast: Pls stop mucking around with my internet connection. On the positive side, work googling so far this week has educated me on such gems as the origin of the Annoyed Picard meme and the […]
