Living in a Dream

Sometimes I just think too much

This is what you get without Drama

I find nothing more depressing than optimism.
-Paul Fussell

The world seems to be holding its breath today. I’m sure it is the last hurrah of winter before spring sets in again…or I could just be hoping against the odds. That’s what it feels like right now. Grey skies and a cold south wind…yeah…depressing after you’ve had a few nice days of sun. ~sighs~

I’m doing my best to remind myself that there are many things I could be doing that are fun and important. But the long drag of winter seems to be taking a toll on my creative mind as well. Last night I was trying to come up with something to do with my new Chromebook and for the life of me I was having trouble with getting any ideas. I even contemplated doing another backstory for my NaNo this year.

So after looking at the character sheets and the outline as far as I had it I decided to do something else. I decided to journal instead. Not really all that exciting, but it gave the Chrome a workout…and me as well. 😀  Getting my laptop splayed writing style to fit onto a small compact keyboard is tricky. Almost like trying to type on a tablet. 😛

But aside from a few programs that are Windows exclusives the Chrome has been doing wonderfully at work. Which is impressing everyone I’m sure. 🙂 But to me it is a really big deal since it may mean that eventually I can get the office away from Microsoft.

It isn’t that I have anything against them really…its just I hate them. Windows is buggy and way too expensive. Microsoft itself just doesn’t want to support the older versions that actually worked. And now there is this whole subscription for an Office suite that is ‘cloud based’. (Translation: Instead of paying x amount of dollars once you pay z every year.) Technically it isn’t a bad deal. Until you realize that the office suite passed its prime about 3 versions ago.

Okay that’s enough computer chatter out of me. I could go on and on, but I really don’t want to. Right now I’m off for lunch then who knows. I may find something really really awesome waiting for me on the web today. 😉


The things we envy

I have too much respect for the idea of God to make it responsible for such an absurd world.  -Georges Duhamel

Well given everything…I would say that this isn’t a bad day. I’ve definitely had worse. And in fact aside from a few bumps in the road…I’d say not bad at all. 🙂

I would say that I’m taking this whole thing well, but in all honesty I’m probably just waiting for the other anvil to drop. Right now I’m just doing small work to keep me busy until I can get hired, but it is enough…or at least I hope so. We really haven’ talked about what kind of money I’ll be making and that always leaves me a little worried.

But I’m doing my best to be the same ME I was before I got accused of passing along company secrets. Or whatever the hell they say I’m doing. But now I know how that atmosphere of theirs got to be as toxic as it is.

You’re not allowed to even be on friendly terms with people who leave the office. Which is a shame. But oh well. 😛 I don’t have to talk to them. Not even the one I supply V2 to. But I’ll give it a shot because I told JonBoy I would.

JJ’s new office is SWEET! They have a real reception area. A real receptionist desk. And more than one bathroom! (Yes that does deserve a mention.) I love the colors. I love the wood floor. And honestly there is a ton of space that they haven’t gotten around to using yet. 😀 It is really really nice.

I’m going to be envious if anyone else gets that job when it comes up.

Now all I have to do is get the equipment in working order and we’ll see where I end up.

Another day, Another war

Sometimes ya gotta do stuff ’cause it’s expected of ya, not ’cause of anything else.

Well this week will be interesting. I’m not sure if that is interesting bad or interesting good, but it will be interesting. The Lady has decreed I work in another office this week and possibly next. I don’t work well in new environments….with people I don’t know….with equipment that isn’t mine…

Yeah, I’m not looking forward to this. ~shrugs~

I guess The Lady called JJ last night and it may or may not have turned into a blame game. Though from what I know- The Lady did say something about legal action.

So I find myself wondering what the hell is going on and how it is going to effect the rest of my week? The answers are not all that comforting so far. In fact since I’m a doom/gloom person I can say that the options are looking more and more like I’m going to lose my job before I even get a warning that they are shutting my office down.

This is actually not as alarming as it probably sounds. I have a job offer that I’m waiting on to see if I even stay with this company to begin with. But that office is new and they may have to wait a month or two before I can start work so it isn’t as if I’m in danger of being jobless.

I did that once.

Once was enough.

We’ll see how this plays out. I’m just hoping that it takes a month or two before anything that impacts me too much takes effect. I can hope anyways. 😀
