I've had worse

Got out from in front of Cowzilla and surfed the cable for a while, looking for something worth spending time and a couple of sandwiches on. I watched the top of the fourth in the Indians/Angels game, but since I don't really care about either of those teams it didn't hold my attention. I finally would up watching The Italian Job, the 2003 remake of the 1969 Michael Caine flick, starring Mark Wahlberg, Charlize Theron, and Seth Green, among others. It was an okay B-movie, and since I didn't see the original I couldn't tell you whether the new version was better/worse than the original. It was an hour's worth of entertainment, and that's pretty much what I was looking for.

Tomorrow I'm going to get up at a semi-decent hour (0830), take advantage of the free breakfast here -for once- and take my time packing up before I have to leave for work at 1100. This is assuming, of course, that Accountemps doesn't call and tell me to take another day off with pay, but I'm going to be positive here and hope that Strayer's IT people have unfucked themselves and quit acting like paranoid bureaucrats. You're trusting me with a few mill in payments, people; I think you can trust me to log into the system I need to record it in. >_<

I need to remember to avoid getting into a depressed state of mind, and take some positive action when I feel myself starting to slide into one. For one thing, more happy, cheerful music and less Metallica like the song for this post, because everything I have of theirs is kind of a downer. Well, okay, there's "Creeping Death", but that's not exactly cheerful. (Heavy metal Passover music, anyone?)

Nose to the grindstone, finally

Getting packed up for work took a little longer than I thought it would this morning, mainly because I had a couple of additional bags' worth of stuff I'd brought in at various points over the last week. This meant I was a couple of minutes late to work, but my boss was okay with that.

Actually got some work done, although it took a couple of hours for IT to get my profile squared a way so I could log in and do that work. Once that was done I spent the rest of the afternoon opening envelopes, getting checks entered into the system, and doing the necessary cross-checking & reconciling to make sure stuff was done right. It's not terribly difficult, but it promises to keep me busier than I was at the Evil Banking Neighbor, and that's good.
