Today & last night

Why does my annoying co-worker insist on copying our boss on every e-mail she sends me, especially if it's something that she thinks will make me look bad? Why? WHY WHY WHY? Fucking jerk. I really can't stand her.

No phone calls from home over the past few days, which means nothing's going bad. That's good. :) Forgot to mention that when we were at lunch on Saturday my mother called. Grandmom's out of the hospital, but they decided not to put her back into the rehab home since it's likely they're the ones that screwed up her blood sugar by not giving her her insulin on time. So, for the time being, she's living with my cat-killing uncle. Mom says she's doing well, happy to get 3 good meals a day (my aunt is a great cook), and even Mom's been getting out of the house more to come visit with her. She was laughing - it's been a while since I heard her laugh. Of course she still feels bad about Bart, but some good news was welcomed.

In the age-old tradition of Repair Your Watch Day I replaced the dead batteries in 3 of my belt watches at lunch today. On top of that, in honor of Rearrange Your Keys On Your Keyring Day, I now have a separate keyring for my office key and parking lot pass. (I am stunned - stunned! - at how many of you have never heard of these time-honored holidays. Shame on you all!)

Last night was gaming, although Daniel had to miss part of it to do a hotel visit for G'con. We played a very enjoyable new game, Citadels (which I may very well add to my gaming wish list), then a round of Bang!, then Myke and I attempted to kill Daniel in Halo but lost. Quincy came to gaming for the first time and enjoyed himself, and stayed overnight. :) He was threatening to follow me into work today and be my assistant, but thankfully decided to go shopping instead. (Whew!)

My other co-worker gave me a Bagua chart to feng shui my office. I'm scared.

An interesting Wednesday...

So I got 3 of my watches batteries fixed today, and forgot the one that's been broken the longest, which has been hanging on my shoulder bag since I bought it. Erg. I also need to get a key made for a certain someone who'll be living with us for a couple of weeks, so maybe I'll do both of those next time I hit UTC at lunch.

My annoying co-worker managed to annoy me again by circumventing me (and the procedure our team had agreed on) because "I wasn't around" - yeah, being at lunch is such an inconvenience for something that under no circumstances needed to be done at that moment. And, of course, by circumventing me and doing it herself, she screwed it up. I went ahead and told my boss because it was really fecking annoying, and she said I was right and she'd mention it to her. Yay me.

After work I went down and picked up the G'con mail, including a couple more memberships, a few program book ad payments, and a few excursion payments. I then stopped at K-Mart to pick up a few things, and then came home. Daniel had to go work a movie shoot downtown and forgot his jacket and badge, so I was a good ate and drove it down to him. Amidst all this I was making quite a few phone calls to get people motivated to get stuff done as we have a mere two weeks until the con! Criminy. So much to do, so much to do... Lots of good news, though - we'll be able to make the t-shirts pay for themselves, the Worldcon bid for Japan in 2007 wants to give us money to throw a party for them in our con suite, and our program book is actually going to make money, even if we have to pay to have it printed (although thieving Adam had the audacity to ask to buy a font - the nerve!). So all is well, even if there are other things that still need a lot of work done to them, but it will all come to pass as it shall, and it shall be good.

John actually commented that it's a shame we don't do this again next year now that we've learned all our lessons. After I splattered his brains across the sofa (or at least I did in my mind's eye) I said I figured we'd have already learned those lessons from Conjecture, and yet here we are repeating some of them (and I'm just as guilty as anyone). Feh. Still, no worries - things shall come to pass, and they shall come to pass well.

I hope.
