Tuesday Tidbits

What the.... As I was driving home today, I noticed stapled to telephone poles flyers with phone number fringe. They were advertisements for petitioner jobs. For what issue? Saving the environment! Now call me crazy but isn't the person posting paper that will end up flying around as litter on the street kind of mixing the message here?

Project progress. One of the mystery project foundation pieces is nearly done. I just have to utilize my talent in squeezing every millimeter of Koigu out of the skein before I run out. It's raised a few eyebrows as I've been working on it at the office. And no it's not obscene. I am proud at how well the shaping has come out, considering I'm doing this with no pattern.

I went to my doctor yesterday about getting some drugs for the crud I'm dealing with. I remarked at how people could take a pulse easily when I have a heck of a time doing it. Later, I showed him the Heart Wave sock. He was impressed and asked me, "How do you do it?" "How do you take a pulse?" I answered. He laughed.

Whispers.... I got a tip about another position at the office. Something more computer related and challenging without the daily dullness of same ole same ole. The pay scale minimum starts $9 per hour more than what I make now. What the hell. You don't move unless you seize opportunities. I may even get the job. If I do, I'll get my boss drunk so that he can get through the transition of training someone to take my place.
