Holiday work

Wake up at 10:30. Get into work at 11:15. No new email since last Wednesday. Get an email from one person I knew was coming, ended up being 10 seconds of work. Wait a bit. Nothing. Eat lunch. Still nothing. Leave at 1:30.

Go home. Log into FFXI. Sit around for a while. At 3:30, I get an IM from my boss about something, followed by another IM from someone else. I VPN in to find two other emails about stuff to do.

W. T. F. If you have work for me, let me know before 3pm. I can’t just sit around for five hours with nothing to do, waiting on standby.

And in other news…

Aside from FFXI, not much else is happening (Ha! Psyche!). My Magic: the Gathering losing streak continues, though I continue to play. I finished watching The West Wing season 3, and I want more. I also started watching From the Earth to the Moon, but one of the DVDs in the set I was borrowing got corrupted, so I only saw the first half.

The Yahoo! Year End Party was nothing out of the ordinary. I knew even fewer people than before, and there wasn’t a DDR machine this time. (I assume the machines were lent by an employee who no longer works here, or something.) It was even in the exact same venue as last year. Also, we have yet to get the traditional gift from the founders, and the year is starting to be close to ending.

I need to buy a calendar.
