Work, and not-work

Got off work yesterday, had to get to bed real soon; got up too early; got no nap before work; forgot two important work items; had to clean up brother’s mess; had to dig car out of snow; small breakfast; had to wait on traffic for four-&-half full minutes at one stop sign; following slow car on way to work… So started day at work in a slightly crappy mood…
– Today I’m thankful for: got through it okay!
– Today I’m thankful for: more snow on the way!
– Today I’m thankful for: got Meru intros improved

Instructions at work: Training on one of the machines… “Don’t do this, cuz you’re not supposed to be doing this – I’m not even supposed to be doing this; yeah go-ahead and try it now.” [sensible chuckle]
Some of my very-first instructions at work: “It’s not about how many you can do, but you need to go fast.”

Here are some Mignon McLaughlin quotations. Very hard to go through a day without a couple of her quotes demonstrating themselves to be true! All of these are probably from The Neurotic’s Notebook
.

“Even cowards can endure hardship; only the brave can endure suspense.”

.

“You will turn over many a futile new leaf till you learn we must all write on scratched-out pages.”

.

“Most of us take on faith only what is unimportant to us.”

.

“Young lovers and young nations face the same problem: after orgasm, what?”

.

“We’d all like a reputation for generosity, and we’d all like to buy it cheap.”
