Mondays always suck, but it always seems worse after a great weekend. And this was a great weekend. *sigh*

30+ e-mails in my in box. They tried to schedule a phone interview for this morning at 9am while I was out on Friday. Hopefully someone else participated, because I wasn't here until 9:30am. Though I did stop at the post office on the way to work and picked up a package my Mom sent. She called from Blacksburg (home of Virginia Tech) a few weekends ago and asked if I wanted anything from the bookstore. I expect this is my mom's Christmas package to Dee and I. Haven't opened it yet, though I doubt it will take me long to tear into it when I get home.

Also had a stop-by visit from the VP of Engineering. (I need to come up with better journal-names for these people, 'cause typing 'VP of Engineering' is sorta long. ^_^) I think the cranks are about to be applied to our group -- he was yammering about "increasing the number of people he can poke" to get things going. For some reason I think he has the vague idea that we're going to be able to cram more features in than we've committed to. Hopefully he's not that delusional. But, giving it being a Monday morning after a great weekend... yeah, this makes me uncomfortable. :-/

I need to get my airline reservation made for New Year's, so that I won't be stuck that weekend with work. I may not have control of much, but here me now, world: I am not working over New Year's!

You definitely won't shirk any responsibilities now. In fact, you may need to be firmly guided away from your work by someone who's willing to insist that you have some fun tonight. Don't argue.
I could be so lucky... does guidance include coming to work and dragging me away from the computer for lunch? LOL

You know you're having one of those days when...

The soap dispensor in the bathroom is out to get me. The first one I tried was empty, then I tried the second one a little too hard I guess -- the soap deflected off of my palm and onto my shirt.

Music can make such a difference. I feel a lot more content with being at work when I get music in my ears. Especially music that brings back happy, good-time memories.

Yes, it's official, the veep is really trying to push hard on expanding the Transport staff. I was asked if I could do an interview starting at 5:30 this evening, and I agreed. Then our HR person came by and told me that if the interview goes well, I should ask him to come back for another round of interviews in the morning tomorrow. Fast turnaround, for how we have been running things.

Why'd I think to update now? The recruiter just called me to tell me the candidate may be 15 minutes late. *giggle* Lotsa traffic out there... not!
