The fires raging in my soul

Well, that was a wild ride on the emotional bells. The wire from Ameritrade hadn't shown up by noon, and when I called them to find out WTF was going on I got a garbled explanation that amounted to "Oh noes! The process is wedged, no money for you until Friday!" I expressed my displeasure in mild terms (since I work in a cube farm, and my bosses would almost certainly object to a full-on spleen vent) and hung up. Fifteen minutes later somebody else from Ameritrade calls back, fixes some things that were apparently causing flags on the request, and got said request into the processing queue...and now I have my cash. Which is good, because I have a few things to do before everything closes tonight.

Today was busy; the Controller once again showed mercy and released us at 1430 on account of the holiday, but since I was waiting for the wire and had work to do anyway I stayed until 1600 and finished up part of the balancing process. This earned me some badly-needed brownie points with my supervisor; I'd earned a couple of "oh, shit!"s earlier in the day due to some billing files that didn't get processed and an entity that had disappeared from the balancing spreadsheet after I'd set it up in April. The decks are all cleared now, and I can get the hell out of here.
