Easing into the end

I've been kinda busy at work tonight. While there wasn't much in the way of work for our traditional platform, there was work for jobs using our Word tools. As one of the few people trained in those tools, I, therefore, had work.

I was mildly annoyed at it to start. The woman who is the technical contact for the tools on second shift has this over-bubbly personality and greeted me with a playful "I hold your fate in my hands." First off, no, I do just fine with my fate, thank you very much. Secondly, I have a lead who tells me what to do; I don't need another one.

Once she was off for the night and I was digging into the work, however, it was pretty OK. I'm still amazed that I can take three or four files out of the bin and complete them in the time that it takes nearly everyone else to complete one. I can't imagine that I'm that much more efficient at what I do, but can't think of why else that might happen. Well, something to file away for performance review time.

Now that I've caught up with all the work there is to do, however, I'm still looking at another hour or so of work before I head home. I've run down my iPod's battery so I could listen to more music only by plugging it in and what fun is that? I still have my Internet haunts to check out for the evening, so that'll be something to keep me occupied at least.

On the food front, I surpassed my minimum fruit servings today! Banana with Cheerios, per the usual and two 12-oz cans of apple juice here at work! Still working on the vegetable thing, but I'll have to do some grocery shopping this weekend so that'll give me some opportunity to pick up some things for the week.
