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.
I’ll try a new rule at work today: fewer than 50 emails in my main inbox. This will require me to reply to some stuff I’ve been putting off because of urgh reasons.
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.
I try to rarely bring work to do during the weekend but there are weekends where I just feel productive… and now that I can easily connect to my work computer from any other computer, ah well, sometimes the temptation is huge!
Friday, Friday, Friday, one more report to get done… maybe by the end of today, but we al know that it will happen by the end of Sunday night.
I have to chair a meeting today and I kept getting these nightmares last night that none of the industry participants were civil during the meeting.
And to think that a few years ago seeing this in a hotel kitchenette would have meant nothing to me!
