Okay. I bought a sleep mask and it came last night. I don't know if it helped much. I'm willing to try it for a week or two. It did keep things dark and it didn't bug me, so it's not preventing me from sleeping.
I couldn't find my transit card this morning. This is disturbing because this is how it works: I take it out of my coat pocket, hold it over the smart card reader thing to get through the turnstile, I put it back in my coat pocket. The end. It stays in my coat pocket. This leaves a few options: I took it out of my coat pocket, it fell out of my coat pocket, or it was stolen out of my coat pocket. #1 is very unlikely, but maybe I did? #2 is quite possible. #3 is fairly unlikely. The possibility of #1 will drive me crazy. Odds are I'll find the thing around the house or something. BUT: if I decide to get a replacement, I'll buy a 7-day pass in the interim because it'll take at least that long, those bastards.
Dammit! Okay. Now that I finally figured out what they actually want to use this crap for, I can actually make this bloody thing tell them what they want.
Tomorrow is my last day in this building. I'm getting moved back to the HQ. Hot damn. This means I'll occasionally have human contact. Downsides: no automatic flushing, more people to share the restroom, more people in general, more traffic by my desk so less wasting time, will probably have to dress better.
xx's earlier work was more pristine.
I've had a slight tingling below my left shoulder blade for a little while. Suggests a pinched nerve or something. Bah. Inconvenient.
Have some sort of performance discussion today.
I ordered some stuff a little while ago and was having it shipped to me at work. The site said that the stuff usually ships the next business day, so I thought nothing of it. It hasn't arrived yet, so I just sent off an e-mail asking if they could ship it to my home address instead of my work address if it hasn't been shipped yet. This just in: they're still waiting on the chalk and they changed the shipping address, so we're all good.
Stretching and flexibility: http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/11/25/phys-ed-how-necessary-is-stretching/ You don't need to be all that flexible, really. You just need to be able to hit the positions you need for your sport. If you don't have a sport, consider finding one and at least pretending to stay in shape for it. No, don't pick long-distance running. Marathoners! Bah! I don't have much against middle-distance runners and sprinters are pretty cool.
Bone density: http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/11/11/phys-ed-the-best-exercises-for-healthy-bones/?em I should think, however, that this would suggest that explosive lifts, like the snatch and clean and jerk, if done heavy, would work. Scientific research will have to be done. The write-up also specifically indicates that heavy resistance exercise wasn't used in the studies. So, make of it what you will.
Dammit. I accidentally typed "google.comk" into the location bar and now it pops up whenever I try to go to google. I am so pissed that I made it so I only have to click a button to go to google. THERE.
