This Morning's Timeline

5:00 a.m. - Alarm goes off. Am awakened for another glorrrrrious day.

5:05 a.m. - Am thankful to impatient bladder for waking me up in a more effective manner than stupid alarm clock.

5:14 a.m. - Groan when weather girl classifies today's weather as a 'sticky hot'.


6:05 a.m. - Train employee in the ancient ways of my people (i.e. trained him on the software we use here.)

Am only interrupted two times by employee's kids calling his cell phone to complain that their sibling is being mean to them.

7:11 a.m. - Jump into first problem of the day. yeah!

7:34 a.m. - Start working on fixing up old SOP in powerpoint.

9:42 a.m. - Am totally hooked on playing around in powerpoint.

Am in love with taking screenshots and making them fancy with circles and arrows and arranging everything in a simple yet visually pleasing manner.

I am the master crafter of all things circle-y and arrow-licious! Go me!

10:03 a.m. - Had some sort of fancy schmancy acrobat software downloaded on my computer. Can now convert everything to pdf file.

Am overjoyed with the endless possibilities of converting fun.

Am not being sarcastic, for this is a big deal. IT Guy informed me at least twice that this was a couple hundred dollar piece of software.

My pc, it now seems, is bling-blinging.

And I am bowed in silent reverence to the almighty Acrobat.

Heh. I lied, I'm totally being sarcastic.

I'm also weary. With each new thing that's added to my computer I'm expected to do more work. Shiiiiiiiit.

10:16 a.m. - Train new supervisor on the ancient ways of my people.

Supervisor has adorable English accent, along with adorable pale English skin and adorable, slightly-larger-than-normal English ears.

He'd remind me more of my dad if his accent was more Kiwi than English.

And if he had a mustache.

And if his clothes didn't quite match and...

(Actually, my dad is a bit more clothes coordinated lately. And his skin is tanner than usual. So really, I'm making no point whatsoever and am just typing around in circles.)

10:37 a.m. - spend more than thirty minutes typing up list of reasons why I'm really busy today.

Am really busy.


Am just taking a break right now. A uh... a 'working' lunch break. Yeah, that's the ticket.

11:41 a.m. - hear brief snippet of Bon Jovi's 'Living on a Prayer'

Best. Ringtone. EVER!

11:54 a.m. - post to blog then jump back in the powerpoint drawing pool to splash around with my palls Circle and Arrow and Text Box. Wheeee!

And that has been my morning. In case, you know, you were wondering or something. :)


  1. heh. atleast it sounds more exciting than my day! so far, the highlight of my day has been getting Quiznos for lunch.

  2. quiznos! that's pretty exciting. especially if you ran into talking baby Bob.


    or a talking spongemonkey.

    'i like the mooooooooooooooon!'

    or uh... not. anything other than a homemade wonderbread sandwich sounds pretty exciting to me. :)

  3. i find that baby to be a little creepy. i dunno... just freaks me out a little...

    now, the other commercials they had? those were great... "we love da subs! cuz they are good to us..." lol
