Heaven Just Got a Little Funnier

RIP, Mr. Carlin. You will always be my favorite comedian. You were one righteous dude.

Gotta love a man who became famous telling us what TV wouldn't allow us to say. In honor of his memory, here's the best list, ever:

I'm not back from my break yet . . .

. . . however, I have a little extra time that's been forced upon me.

Honestly, I think I'm a jinx to all computer systems.

First, at my new job, I was having issues logging in. Almost every day for two weeks, the computer refused to recognize my password, and I'd have to contact the help desk and get them to reset it.

Then, at my old job (for whom I'm still working through the end of this month on an overtime basis), their IT branch brought the Web based e-mail server down over the weekend to install some updates (or some such IT hocus pocus). It was supposed to be back up Sunday night. It's now Wednesday, and it's still down. Which means I'm still down. I can't access any of the quotes I had various companies e-mail me last week. I have two contracts I can work on, but after I get them done, that's pretty much it until the Webmail comes back online.

Now, today, at my new job again, our M-drive is gone. It was there yesterday. The M drive is where all the work for our unit is. Everything. Our templates, our downloads, our reports. Pffffft. All gone.

So, we're just sitting here. I don't really want to do work for my other agency at my new job. But if IT can't find the M drive soon, I may have to.

UPDATE: Boss came and told me IT found our drive. I can get back to work!

Wait - why am I happy about this????? I must be sick.

Have a good day, ya'll!!

Taking a break

Hey guys -

I've decided to take a bit of a break from blogging. I'm working two jobs, and trying to spend as much time with the family as possible.

I will return, probably in a month or two.

I will still comment on your blogs from time to time, so I won't disappear completely.

Comin' at ya from my new job!

I'm back at Caltrans, the lovely agency that blocks You Tube and Classmates, and (occasionally) Blogger.

But, it's 15 minutes from my house, ya'll.

Woo hoo!

My work area is very pretty. Can't wait to mess it all up.

Tell ya what, though - this place is quiet!! I'm not used to it. Give me a work area that's loud and busy, and I'm right at home. This is just eerily quiet. Not used to it. And, I forgot to bring my earphones, so I can't play any of my cd's. Wah.

My cubicle is right across from my new boss, so I figure I won't be able to load all my card games that I love playing when I get bored. Damn. Suppose I'll have to actually work now, huh?

I already have my shoes kicked off, and I'm waiting for someone to show me what the heck to do. Until then, I'll just do research on their website. *yawn*
