That's the name listed for one of our departments. I think that's fantastic. MEDICAL SUSPENSE! And review.

I need a girl to understand that I have like responsibilities and stuff. She called last night at like 9 saying she was going to go out for like some food and drinks later and I said, sure, $BAR has their $2 burger night, just gimme a call. At like 11:20 she called, so I slept through it. I mean, c'mon, I can't go out at 11:20 on a Tuesday, I have work in the morning. And if she was disappointed, she can't really expect somebody to wait 2.5 hours between agreeing to go out for a bite to eat and actually going out. If somebody suggests a bite to eat at 9, you expect it to be fairly soon if it's the middle of the week. I realize there's a dialectic here: she needs to get stuff done between the time she gets off work and goes out and therefore can't go out until she's done with stuff and is on a later schedule than me, whereas I need to get to bed at a reasonable hour so I can get out the door by 8 at the latest in the morning. I'm not willing to accept being tired all the time and falling asleep inconveniently, so I insist on at least occasionally sleeping all night.

Oh well. Maybe I'm just boring. But I insist: it's not that I don't want to go out, it's that I'd like to go out at 7. Maybe that's a square time to go out.

Meeting with chief something or other officer today. Talking about how important my stuff is.

I hate the men's room when somebody else is in there - some people just do weird stuff in there.

I have my graduate student orientation today after work. I still haven't signed up for classes yet. AAAH. I need to meet with my advisor. I left a message on his phone yesterday. I should call again, but I really really really hate making calls. I had to psych myself up to it for like 10 minutes. I hope my classes don't fill up. That would be most inconvenient, since there are two I want to take and if they fill up, there aren't any others that I want to take or that would fit. I would be screwed. Well, there is one alternate that doesn't look like it will fill up. But it's not ideal for my program. It would still be good in general, though.

Okay. I should eat lunch. I hate this. I hate my job.

BUT: there is a rumour. A rumour that a scarf is done. A rumour that a scarf will soon appear in my mailbox. A rumour that MissTrish is the greatest woman who ever did live, a veritable rockstar among rockstars. Even more of a rockstar than Steve Wiebe from King of Kong.

My back is still tired.

Lent begins the first week of March. It is coming up fast.

I once described a colleague as "Head of Everything Else" which later landed up on some post addressed to her.

Served her right for taking the day off and leaving me to answer the phone...

My workmates always "go out" at like 11 by debacle (2.00 / 0) #2 Wed Jan 21, 2009 at 08:24:21 AM EST
Which is usually just about the time when I pack it in.

Does she not have a jeorb?

I hate making calls to people I've never talked to in person before. I make a poor first impression over the phone.

A MissTrish scarf does sound pretty awesome.

She has jobs, but they aren't 9-5, so she runs a later schedule than me. She can usually sleep in.

Sounds like my brother's schedule by Roaming Philosopher (2.00 / 0) #6 Wed Jan 21, 2009 at 09:58:13 AM EST

Weird stuff in the men's. by dark nowhere (2.00 / 0) #8 Wed Jan 21, 2009 at 11:01:01 AM EST
Okay, this is not a confession.

I went out to this Lebanese restaurant, which I frequented. Anyway I had to make water, and ran into the cook. He didn't seem like he was there for any of the intended purposes and also seemed really out of it. I've no idea what he was doing and I would have forgotten it but on his way out he said, it's just one of those days, y'know? Like he thought he should have been embarrassed of something but couldn't be arsed to muster a red face.

Medical Suspense and Review. Sounds like either test results or single-blind gonzo experimentation.

See you, space cowboy.

I am jealous of your scarf by MostlyHarmless (2.00 / 0) #9 Wed Jan 21, 2009 at 01:24:29 PM EST
I believe your rumours to be true...

I'm old and grumpy* by sugar spun (2.00 / 0) #10 Thu Jan 22, 2009 at 03:11:13 AM EST
but if someone asked me to get something to eat at 9pm I'd probably say no outright. Even if we left right then, I'd still only be getting home at 11:30 or so, and then having to wind down and get ready for bed ... not a chance. I'd be entirely useless the next day.

I hate students. They remind me of being able to sleep late and not having to work late to compensate.

*Actually not old, but get off my lawn anyway.

I like my flextime schedule by garlic (2.00 / 0) #12 Thu Jan 22, 2009 at 07:58:55 AM EST
I'd expect if you're only pretending to do work, you could pretend from home...
