Another One of Those Weeks
Someday, I'm going to have a really awesome week. I'm going to meet the girl of my dreams, get something awesome accomplished, and maybe have half a chance to relax. Of course, that week wasn't last week and doesn't look like it'll be this week either.
Last week was not really a very good week. Honestly, I don't remember much of it anymore apart from not being able to get up in the mornings, the dog dumping UV-reactive hair gel on the carpet in two distinct places (and even with a carpet cleaner, I'm having troubles getting it out), oh, and getting my first speeding ticket ever. Going to the airport to pick up my coworkers to boot, which I volunteered to do because I'm usually up late anyway. The one bright side of that was seeing a shooting star, which I'm pretty sure was my first. I think it was actually a satellite that they deorbited, honestly, but I wouldn't really know about these things. No luck on the wish being granted, though. So, yeah, I get to go to STOP class and hope my insurance doesn't go through the roof. I'm not exactly excited or pleased.
This week is going to be rough too. The boss just cc'ed me on an email where he made rather grandiose claims about the product I'm working on and promised a mostly working version of it by the end of this week. I'm not sure that he's aware that one of the important features, saving and loading, isn't done yet. Or even started. He came into the webdev office while I was working on it today, trying to come up with a way to coerce the event driven nature of Flash to load images without letting them go out of scope. Of course, he didn't talk to me, or even look over my shoulder. So I'm probably going to get stuck pulling long, late nights at work all week, trying to convince it to come together. And Heaven help me if the network goes down...I can't afford to devote a day to troubleshooting that this week.
It's going to be one long week, and it's just started. *sigh*
