The calm before the storm

I've got a hell of a week ahead of me. I really should be working on updating a few documents for my boss (arguably, I should have worked on them on Friday), but needed a minute or two to compose myself before going on to that.

After I finish updating these documents, I've got to get ready to go into the office for a meeting with the vendor on whose technology our latest software venture is based. I'm a little concerned, because they are rarely upfront and candid about the capabilities of their product, and I get the terrible sense that they're going to spend 90 minutes blowing smoke up our asses, and I'm not going to be happy if that's the case. The more I think about this, the more I think I should have not allowed my boss to talk me out of resigning a few weeks ago.

I get to spend the middle of the week in class. I'm afraid that I'm going to fall asleep if it fails to hold my interest. On the other hand, maybe I'll get some writing done.

So, time for work. Updates as time permits.


Got a call a while ago. The laptop is fine, and the guy even reinforced the area that broke off so that there's less of a chance that it'll break off again. That's certainly good news. I'm going to pick it up in a few minutes, on my way to the office for this meeting of mine. I found a new way to get to the office via the back roads, so I'm going to try that. Whee!
