An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife).
- I had to work late on Friday. And, as if
oftenalways the case, the mess I was cleaning up wasn’t even mine. Plus, I received a lot of helpful “suggestions” that didn’t do anything; but waste time. I know that people mean well; but the best thing they could do would be leave me alone.
- I finally lost the last of the five extra pounds that I gained up over Thanksgiving. Not eating anything on Friday (since I was at work all evening) probably had a lot to do with it. So, that’s at least one “good” thing that came from a coworker dropping the ball.
- We’ve had a stuck/dead pixel on our LCD monitor. It’s right in the middle of the screen so it’s very distracting; especially for anything that has a black background. I tried all of the software tricks to unstick it until I finally got so frustrated that I poked the screen. That seemed work; we’ll see how long it lasts.
- It snowed today. It wasn’t very much and it didn’t stick; but it was a depressing reminder of the endless wet, gray days ahead. The days of summer that we enjoy so much are a long way off.
