There should be a rule that if you insist on rereading something “quickly” and making comments, you should be required to reread the sentence/paragraph you’re commenting on twice before leaving the comment. I got a presentation back with a comment asking which products are covered by a certain sentence… listen, I don’t know, how about the ones listed after the “e.g.” literally 2 words later? Ah. Monday mornings.

Ah, being able to wear almost any type of shoe to work – this is why working in research is great. I actually just realised I didn’t really have “decent” shoes to wear to a fancy meeting next week as my Chucks are all very colourful (besides boots)… so I ordered some grey-ish Vans shoes.

Yesterday a co-worker asked me what “Black Friday” was because she kept on getting emails about Black Friday offers… that usually last at least till Monday (is Cyber Monday dead?) and still takes place even though pretty much no one has ever heard of Thanksgiving outside of English classes. Globalisation!

By the time this gets posted (it’s 6:45am, this will go live at 2:44pm) the fate of six of my projects will be known – positive vote or not. The last two days have been “folkloriques”, as the French say, because of those six projects but also other political news that was shared with us… but at least the meeting in March should be much calmer.
