Blah Blah

For a day with no meetings, today has been insane. I’ve rewritten a document that took me two weeks the first time in less than three hours. I’ve fixed a dozen problems with a dozen different products. I’ve tried to find an answer to an “urgent” question that apparently has no answer (because the people who can answer it are on vacation, and this stupid thing has no documentation).

During my writing marathon, I discovered something important: Never write an important technical document while listening to Radiohead. It makes the document extremely dour and depressing. I don’t think I wrote one positive thing. Oh well, tomorrow’s all about rewrites.

Pretty much everyone I work with went home early. I’m all alone here stressing over this document, but trying to get out of here at a reasonable hour so I can see Jen and Max and go have dinner at my folks’.

Ok, this is pointless, but I’m going to post it anyway.
