TCOB Friday

Well, except for a post.

Friday morning I did a lot of work for a change. Just hunkered down and did it. I complain about my job, but it’s not the work I dislike. If I’m just left alone to do what I need to do, it’s fine.

It helps one of my new co-workers seems pretty cool. We’re working on this project together, and agree our boss has been very unclear about his vision. Since she’s new, she was able to go to him and say, “I don’t get it” (though not in so many words), and so at the meeting he was able to clear things up. I’m still not sure if the project has any value, but at least we’re all clearer on the direction.

Had a meeting at noon (no lunch! had to concentrate on keeping from stomach from growling) and that consultant I have an on-and-off crush on joined via phone. I was hoping he’d show – I even wore a cute outfit (yes: I’m a loser) – but I think his office is in New Jersey. I got all giddy when he addressed me by name directly. So high school.

I accomplished even more work after the meeting, and was still out by 3.

Oh yeah, I also finally made dentist and eye doctor appointments. Well, the eye doc appointment is on time. The dentist is overdue from April. Also made my travel arrangements for a meeting in Chicago at the end of the month. For some reason, I’m really looking forward to it. Probably because I won’t be presenting, just participating in different trainings. Plus it’ll be my first time to the windy city, outside of stopovers in O’Hare.

Today’s reserved for writing and running. I’m looking forward to my jog in Central Park, and the weather seems perfect for it right now. Tomorrow there will be thunderstorms and I would prefer not to be hit by lightning. Ouch.


  1. I always get pissed when people call meetings for noon, but no one else eats… AGH! I need food, people!!!

    I’ve always wanted to go to Chicago, but have never made it. Heard it’s a neat place. Hopefully you will have a chance to enjoy the city and not just be stuck in meetings!!

  2. I had a crush on a guy who would show up to biweekly status meetings and made sure to look cute on those days, too! All I had to do was inquire if he had a gf at his site, I shoulda done that before asking him out. =S

  3. Chicago is a great city! Don’t forget to have some pizza!
