Pressure Pot

Things at work feel more stressful for me than they have in a long time. I’m guessing because my barely competent skill set is being exposed on a regular basis, and that makes me nervous. Eventually these people are going to figure out I can’t do what I was hired to do and fire me. 😦

All worrying aside — yeah, right, couldn’t type that with a straight face, either — it’s frustrating to know what I have to do and even have some idea how to do it, but not be able to make the magic happen where the rubber meets the road. So today, I have my normal round of reporting to do, then I have the month-end reporting to do, then I have this looming thunder-shock project looming which has to be finished by Monday. Oh, and we’re closed on Friday to observe Good Friday.

So I only have until Thursday evening to finish figuring out how to do what I don’t know how to do, test it, and get it deployed into production.

Needless to say, if any of you are the praying type, I am taking all comers.

In other news, I finished off the last of my new TV series last night, so I can return without distraction to writing. (AAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA!)

I’m a wreck. How’s it by you?

  1. I like Monk. I haven’t finished it yet. I finished How I Met Your Mother and I’m almost finished with Bones. I’m starting Breaking Bad. I’ve heard good things about it, but I also heard good things about Nip/Tuck and I couldn’t finish the first episode.

    Monk is awesome, if a little weak at times. Still, the characters made it worth watching. Hell, I sat through every episode of three different Star Trek offerings, how bad can it be? And my wife liked Lie to Me with Tim Noth a bunch.

  2. That is so rough. I will definitely send up some prayers on your behalf.

    I really appreciate it. I’ve been doing my bunny-rabbit impression all weekend — maybe even all week — and I’m starting to feel the effects. I have to calm down somehow.

    My weekend is OK so far. I got through my family’s passover ceder without major incident, so now I can relax.

    W00T for relaxation! You’ve earned it!

Hey, what's up? Tell me whatcha think!
