*Pant, gasp, wheeze*
February 26, 2004

I haven't been meaning to ignore this place, but since the promotion, my main writing time -- lunch -- has all but disappeared. Plus, I have had a new distraction in the evening. I went out and bought myself a few "melvins" -- as a friend of mine one's described gifts that you get for yourself.

In addition to about 10 CD's -- Johnny Cash, Ray Orbison, The Best of the Blues (Various), Rush, Sheryl Crow, Sarah Maclachlan, No Doubt, Social Distortion, and Tori Amos to name the artists, I picked up a new game -- Knight's of the Old Republic, a Star Wars roleplaying game. I guess the fond memory of seeing the original movie with my dad when I was 6 or 7 struck a chord and I jumped at the chance to play at a Jedi -- even though its set 4000 years before the movies. Very Happy As a result, I've been zooming around from Tatoinne to Yavin -- smacking down Dark Jedi's, freeing wookies and generally being the all around hero. At one point, I did describe myself as a knight looking for a dragon to slay -- I guess this has given me a chance to reawaken that part of myself -- even if only vicariously.

I've need the opportunity to degauss as well. I was slowly transitioning myself into the marketing side of my new department but that has had to change. I'm going into sink or swim mode because someone is leaving the marketing team. I am going to have to help take up the slack when I'm less than a neophyte at this job. It's a bit of a stretch from the sales, customer service, administrative stuff that I was doing. I'm going to have to actually think and stay focused. Working with the standards is going to help -- it's already built my confidence up in some areas. I just hope it's enough.

I've been working a lot on my own time. I don't have enough hours during the work day and I have some things that need to be done in short order. The last 3 or 4 nights, I've been bringing home AAA invoices to check against my payment receipts because accounting wants to clear the extra balances out of that account. Somehow or another, its built up an extra $54,000 over the past several years -- mostly before my time at running the solicitation. Well if they don't want it that account any more, I can think of one that would gladly take it. Very Happy
