I can return to the world of the living now, after helping to create a 1,055-page document.
I would like to propose that as many of us as possible get together for drinks and a movie sometime very soon. I have been wanting to see Pan's Labyrinth since I first saw it. Check out the trailer if, unlike me, you haven't been obsessively waiting for this for months. It seems it's playing in Harvard Square, so how about we meet somewhere for dinner/drinks and then see the movie? Date subject to mutual convenience. iGrrrl: Any chance you and your partner could get a babysitter?
In further work news, I got a promise from $uber_boss today: "I promise you, you will never have to work with $evil_director again." She then went on to talk about all the things we really, really dislike about him. He really is a lying sack of shit. But I never have to deal with him as a part of my job again. I'm still going to give my dog lots of positive reinforcement when he does his "Fuck $director!" happy dance.
I've gotten really nice feedback from everybody I worked with except for $evil_director, and I wouldn't believe him if he did give me positive feedback. I got a "you are awesome!" email from one person, another complimenting my hard work and professionalism. I think I'm pretty good at my job. I'm glad it's recognized outside of my office.
I'm taking tomorrow off. I have a box of 50 Vertigo comics (single issues from a variety of titles) that I picked up for $12. And I'm going to lie on the couch with Rocky and, if it isn't too cold for me, dress him in his coat and take him for a walk. I'll call and email my friends. I'll get to watch tv, and spend time with ana, and do all the things that working 50 hours (or 74, last week) a week keeps me from doing.
