it's only wednesday and this week has already sucked the biggest bag of hairy dicks it's not even funny. that just had to be said. i swear, if work had a face, i would punch the fuck out of it erryday.
with our deployment so close and all executive eyes are laser focused on us, we ain't got time for fuckups which seem to be happening. you know when a team (not ours) is in deep shit when you have other people modifying XML files because of all the fuckery goings on. by other people, i mean me. FYI - i am not a developer yet i'm doing that shizz because i refuse to be standing there with my pants down on the 11th hour.
which is why this blog took a backseat to everything.
shows were not watched.
books were not read.
neither were blogs.
comments to my old posts were not replied to (sorry ladies, hope you understand)
that said, i did manage to get a few laughs in. you know how starbucks employees are always getting your name wrong? i read an article that they do it on purpose just to piss you off. here are two gems i found:
that said, i did manage to get some things done:
:: like crocheting. a lot. it relaxes me and i've been bringing my old lady knitting bag to the work lunch table while everyone talks around me. perhaps it's rude but after hours of being in meetings/on calls that makes me rage all morning, i need to do this for the safety of work humans around me.
:: like making some moola. 2 bloggers approached me for an ear warmer and while i didn't charge much - because let's get real here, it's not like my work is perfection - it was good to know that people actually think i make decent things.
:: i made my husband a hat. i have never crocheted a hat before and it turned out well.
:: nearly finishing my christmas shopping goal. i just have 3 more gifts to get (real easy gifts too) and then i'm done.
and now, it's back to drowning. just wanted to let you all know that i'm not dead (yet).
what have you been up to lately?
