So That's What You Do All Day?

It seems like everyone has been crazy busy at work lately. I too have been contributing my efforts to save our country from a recession by burning the midnight oil at the office.

Working at the office has been a nice change for me since from about mid-December to New Years, I've been working from a hotel or from home. Apparently, I've been missing out. Some of the most interesting things that have happened to me over the past couple of weeks at the office:

  1. I eyeballed an 80 page Annual Report for one of my mutual funds and in one cut broke it into two 40 page sections. This is the most satisfying thing I've done in months.
  2. I told off a headhunter who must have called me about six times, and left three voicemails, when on the seventh attempt, I finally picked up and just snapped and screamed, "Leave me alone Max!" My cube neighbor shouted out, "Who was that?" And before I thought about it, I said, "Oh just my doctor." I can only imagine what my coworkers say behind my back.
  3. I finally got to play the Wii machine (is that what you say? do you "play" a Wii?) and played the tennis game no less. I gave Mario a kick-ass serve that day.
  4. I developed a new nickname for a bug we found in our software reported by one of our customers, whose name is "Dana". After the first reporting, I started calling it "The Dana Syndrome." I don't think anyone else found it nearly as funny as I did.

"The Dana Syndrome" made me chuckle.
