It's Monday... I can feel it.
So, I couldn't get to sleep at a regular hour last night... I'm here at work; bleary-eyed, under florescent lights, wishing I was back at home in bed, sprawled across black satin sheets.
After all the work I did on my site, I actually used it today... Yes, there is always something about your own work to dislike! I have to tweak it later so that it is less annoying to use. I even botched one of the links. I must've been drunk or something... Still, it is there and it works, so Sunday was a productive day, I guess.
I should start thinking about my plans for next week... Going off to Burning Man
! I know it isn't exactly what one should do at B.M., but I wonder if I can get web access so that I can occasionally update the journal here! It's somehow feels like a moral imperative
... or perhaps I cannot relax anymore if I don't have Internet access (i.e. I am doomed.)
My cube has no personality... only my yo-yo
and an Edward Gorey
poster. I'm not sure that I will give it much personality either. Personality is dangerous in the corporate environment if you don't have f.u. privs... which I don't have, as yet.
Sometimes, it feels like I work with a bunch of pod people... a mid-40's group of tech writers who have been doing it for too long. Their odd quirks have, over time, become sad repressed quirks... they have strange nervous ticks, but they mean well. Let's hope they all become rich too...
... I need to stay with this company for as long as I handle it. I negotiated a salary that is quite generous and my stock at this place should me rich, at which point I can consider moving somewhere far less stressful/expensive. I live in the Silicon Valley, btw... if you don't know where that is, I can't/won't help ya. I don't do technical support anymore. ;-)
Thoreau, in Walden, observed that, "The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation." Well, thanks to the Internet, we can all lead lives of noisier desperation! Whee! It's sadly necessary. I mean, have you seen the price of waterfront property near Walden Pond
