Wha Happened?

A minute ago, I was on the brink of a long weekend. Now I'm preparing for another work day. I seem to have missed something in between somewhere!

Yesterday was actually a nice day. I pottered around on teh computer in the morning, slept through the afternoon, and the rest of the time was spent on Skype, interrupted briefly for dinner (Domino's Pizza). Now here I am, showered, and all ready for a few hours' sleep before starting the day all bright-tailed and bushy-eyed. Oh vacation time, where is thy sting?

What a Wonderful Work Day

Today was one of the best work days I can remember having in ages. I attribute it to a flury of wonderful e-mails going back and forth which really provided encouragement and strength. It was terrific, I got a lot done, and I feel good about things at the end of the day.

I Hope I'm Not Shooting Myself in the Foot

I just wrote to Donna Passey, the majordomo at the part of the Department of Education where I've applied for my job. I asked her politely if the braille proofreader's position has been filled yet, and if not, when they expect to fill it. The job posting itself kind of made it clear that they didn't want inquiries, I just hope that my inquiring thus does not disqualify me outright. I also just realized that I addressed her by her first name, which may be another no-no, but shoot, she and I know each other and I've always called her Donna. I'm an ass. Sometimes I don't think about these things now, and it's kind of too late to change anything now. Oh Brucie, where is thy brain?
