Not on call tonight.. I’m alternating every other day this week, and will probably assign the full week to a tech next. I look forward to a full night’s rest (and a Friday/Sunday combo, free of work interruption.)
I had a polite talk with CS & Rhode Island about organization and documentation. This was the calm before the storm. CS didn’t seem to grasp the need, but I think he understands that his grasp isn’t as important as the desire of his bosses to have it. We will have things documented, and documented well, or I fear, a fee spot in the technician pool. Mohna, a remarkably tall Muslim girl looks like she might make a good phone person, too (a full-time student)… freeing my creative thought/solution time up even more. Kahuna will be back from Vegas tomorrow, and it smells a bit like SD is leaving.. not to mention that JC is training her replacement bean-counter so that she can have her baby#2 and be a full time stay-at-home momma.
I’m a little drowsy tonight… I got a lot accomplished today… FDLE quarterly reports are totally automated now, configuration of a few different machines went well, and apache server is behaving well. It’s nice to know that when I’m home, here and now, I don’t have any job-tethers. If I was of a mind to, I could just walk down the beach, and not worry that the phone is going to ring. I can take a long hot shower, and not concern myself with the possibility that I might have to leap out without finishing properly. Hopefully, I’ll be able to spend an hour or two with Danny… maybe go out for a bite and a gab.
Not so chilly out tonight as it has been, lately. Is winter over?
Skinny cow “coffee” ice cream sandwiches are bleh. Stick with chocolate, mint or strawberry. This is just a waste of good chocolate wafers.
Newt loves tiny wooden Christmas ornaments. He’s knocked every one off of the tiny fake tree, and is chasing a well-gnawed snowman around the floor.
Rough Guide to Asha Bhosle, I just like the sound clips. 🙂 That’s the voice I think of when I think of Bollywood.
John Lennon died on this day, December 8, 1980. A beautiful memorial to John Lennon can be found in the “Strawberry Fields” section of Central Park, in the shadow of his home in the Dakota building. The original Strawberry Field(s) in actually in the Liverpool area.
