old skool

August 2, 2005

CoWorker S has left work to go have her baby. She usually starts work at 5:30 am to check the site..make sure all the links work. Basically, the stuff I used to do before I curiously grabbed the bottom rung of the corporate ladder and pulled the darn thing down on top of me. But she’s off until mid-October now — for a delightful reason. Which is why I’m up at 6:15 am.

Noblesse oblige.

Work is a major stress lately. The Big Summer Project is coming along swimmingly — but it’s sucking up tons of my time. It launches next week; however, we have a Big Fall Project due on 9/30. So now I have very little time to do the grip-and-grin part of my job, so I guess the other departments think I’m pulling away. I tell ya…once the first week of October comes around…mmmm….bliss.

Good news: The Big Summer Project will end my having to wake up early to check the site. Hopefully. 😉

So because I’m awake so early, I’m going to go to the gym. But to put that off a bit…let’s kick this thing old skool, homes.

Wt: Who the hell knows? I’m going to the gym this morning, so you KNOW it’s not all that great. 25 minutes on treadmill, 8 assisted chinups
Breakfast: I’ll have some grapenuts, thanks. Skim milk done!
Lunch: Quiznos small sierra smoke turkey, light chips and a diet mt. dew.
Dinner: Unknown. BvP is working his new overnight schedule, so I’m on my own this evening.
Work Docket: Meeting at 9:30. Conference call at 10:30. It’s the end of the month! Yay. So today I run reports on revenue and make sure that it jives accordingly with accounting’s version. This will, no doubt, include physical counting of ads. I need to get my ducks in a line for tomorrow’s training sessions — which will interfere with my attendance of the Big Weekly Meeting. Continuing work on Big Summer Project, plus a banner redo.
Evening plans: If I’m smart, I’ll put in an hour or so on the Big Summer Project from home. If I’m dumb I’ll play World of Warcraft. (Sandriara is now lvl 27 on ShadowSong.)
Dreams: I usually only remember bits and pieces. Last night I went on a road trip with Jason Kottke (platonically), swam in a hotel pool (sans Kottke) and had a friendly encounter with my Big Boss who told me I didn’t have to worry about the Big Weekly Meeting tomorrow because the weather was going to be nice and he was going to cancel it anyway. Then he laughed, Dr. Hibbert-style.

To the gym, Jeeves! Maybe the dry cleaner will be open on the way back. BvP took a bunch of my stuff there last week, and I’m tired of wearing the same 4 outfits. 😉 done!

    Nah…you get 4 weeks before due date off if your doc writes a note. Drop her an email and ask her about the fun with her due date. 🙂

    Good luck with all the extra work. These two weeks at work have been horrid for me!

    Glad to see the Old Skool stuff is back. Although Ladygypsy is always an entertaining site, it was this stuff that made it unique.
