It appears to be Crisis Week at work. I spent hours on conference calls with one client yesterday, and hours on conference calls with a different client today. Also, I went in early to help wrap up yesterday’s problems, but couldn’t do that (someone else did) because of the new crisis, AND I worked until 8pm because we’re short-staffed and I didn’t want to screw anyone on my team by making them work the late shift more than once this week, so I just finished an 11-hour day. Half of it was productive, much of it was annoying. But it’s over now. John just watched Atari: Game Over (which appears to be an episode (the only one?) in a series called Signal to Noise that maybe failed, based on the IMDB results), and the music over the end credits was happy enough to make those couple of minutes the best part of my day so far. Of course, Google is failing me – I can’t find the song. Don’t ruin this for me, Google!
But hey – I feel much better than I did, and it was super-duper nice to work the afternoon from home. My twice-monthly meetings with my boss start next week, so I plan to make this a regular thing and let everyone get used to the idea. I want to talk to her about it before I do it, but it’s going to happen.
Reading is next, and bed, and tomorrow is Thursday, and you know what? I really like Thursdays.
