Last day of school!

Today I made my final commute to Ye Olde Alligator Farm. Here’s my favorite part of this ridiculous commute, for kicks …


I’ll stay with the same company but will have an office not surrounded by assorted wildlife. So, upon request from friends, mom sent sweets to make sure nobody forgets us …


I actually like the current office and broader cast of characters. I’m taking the hard parts with me, unfortunately. But at least I’ll be closer to home for all those early mornings and late nights.

Hour 60 of my captivity

July 31st, 2014, 5:23 PM by Goddess

It’s 6:22 p.m. on a Thursday and my night to pick up dinner for my sickly mother. But lo, I’m 60 hours in already and probably have another three more to go AT LEAST. And don’t get me started about how painful Fridays are.

It’s my last week at the Alligator Ranch. I thought I might get to lunch with my friends (hah. Why try now after three years) or maybe get to have a beer with them (hah. Why try now after two years).

It’s like the universe wants to be sure I hate everything until the last possible moment until it goes away and so do I.

Film at 11 if there were anybody else left in the building I could choke. No danger of that, ever!

Today may stop sucking now

Another messed-up toof, another dentist appointment I have to reschedule.

Somebody give me my six-month medallion for being yam-fit-free …

Damn skippy

I keep thinking it’s Thursday. A side effect of working all day Sunday, I imagine.

My new hire is continually mind-boggled at how much work I do. And how numerous and complicated our processes are. And how I’ve mastered pretty much everything. And yet how much guilt I have to carry that I can’t spend all 24 hours working because that’s just how much there is to do.

He reminds me constantly, in a big way, how lucky the world is to have me in it. It’s a nice reminder that I can easily be replaced, but I am absolutely irreplaceable.

Nice to be appreciated.
