Unfortunate

As most of you know, my 9-5 (or 7:30-5:30 in my case) is spent in the world of traffic engineering. As someone who likes to have friends and be social, I try my best not to talk about my job outside of work. This past week however, my job brought my nerd status to an all time high. About a month ago my computer at work died. I came in one morning and it wouldn't start. No blinking lights. nothing. totally dead. The part that was needed to fix it was apparently on back order, so they decided to buy me a new computer. It came in at the end of last week. I set it up Monday. Turns out, it came with two monitors. So now my desk looks like this:


Confession: I am beginning to like having two monitors.

I've also had to wear one of these 3 times in the past week:



Confession: I didn't have to borrow one, I have my own. It lives in my office with my dual monitors.

Please still be my friend.

Anne, in my stalking, I discovered that you wanted to paint your kitchen cabinets this spring and I want to help - let me know when you do it and if I can help, you know I will! :)

this makes me smile... why did we ever want to graduate college? couldn't we stay forever?

Jen, I unfortunately won't be at leadership this Friday to wear my vest - but if you ever want to borrow it, let me know.

Kari, please help with the kitchen cebinets. We have been putting it off because it scares me.

All, stay tuned for another unfortunate aspect of work posting - I wasn't planning on writing anything else about work until I went to a sign retro-reflectivity webinar today. More on that coming soon...
