So little sleep

So much pain in my head from a budding sinus infection

So much creative work I have to do TODAY

Time for the Old Yeller Treatment on Nita.

I officially hate trying to say something informative (or even spin-worthy) in 35 characters or less.

I am that good.

Thank you.

A number of years ago, [livejournal.com profile] greensabre27 was telling me his "if I win the lottery" story.

Since then, apparently it's been percolating in my head.

You see - I know a lot of people. Like a lot.

And I have a small requirement (evidently) in my choice of people I hang out with. They need to be smart, and they need to have some talent/skill. Yah - I know. Inspecific. But it seems to work.

Here's the thing. Generally (and sadly, not all the time), when someone says "Hey Nita, I need to do X, how do I do that?" and I don't know the answer, I do know who they could talk to find the answer.

And I get to thinking.

If I win the lottery (thereby assuring us of startup capital), I think I'm going to offer my network of friends a job working for a consulting company.

What do we consult on? What's not working for you? Likely, we have someone who can solve that problem for you.

Rates? It'll depend on how much of a moron we think you are (though I should probably have someone better with words ([livejournal.com profile] much_ado, [livejournal.com profile] bridgeoutahead, [livejournal.com profile] hel_ana, etc, etc, etc comes to mind) word that...).

Laughter - my husband just walked in and said "Oh great - you're making the A-Team"

Heeeheee...that means I get to be Hannibal.

Or Face.

I've always wanted to be Face.

When I call your company and say "here's my problem, I have measurements, but I really don't know enough about what is out there to tell you I need X, can I get your recommendations, please and thank you?", telling me that you should be able to solve my problem, you're going to email me a quotation and explanation later today goes a long way to making me a happy girl.

I don't mind if you tell me you can't help me. Hell, I prefer honesty. But dude - this is the first guy I've spoken to who's been reasonable about the discussion.

If this works out, I'll post the name/contact information for these guys, on the theory that useful people should be rewarded by word of mouth....

I shouldn't be this excited that I got a simple flash animation to work like the early hulking steps of Frankenstein's monster....

I have two things that I got recently that live in my office. They're there to make me smile on days like today. One's orange & talks. The other's purple and gives me something beautiful to look at.

Thank the gods for that because today, I could eat human body parts and spit out nails.

Someone just left me a message farting on my voicemail.

Dude.

Get a life....

I'm in the office.

We'll see how long this lasts, but I'm here.

I have a new coworker.

She can make really good baklava.

And she shares.

I'm so hosed...

Every so often I trip over something while hunting for things at work that wobbles my brain.

Today I find a website called Gay PEI, which lists, presumably gay friendly, B&Bs & hotels in Canada.

I was trying to find something called the Rainbow Lodge in BC. I suppose I should have expected this.

Doing some review of journals for work.

There's a lovely "are you sure you're kids are safe" ad in an educational institute journal that's pushing an id-on-demand service that shows a row of "normal" looking people with the line "Which one is the sex offender?"

The same lineup is along the background of an ad plugging the virtues of this multi-function chair - presumably all kinds of people can be comfy in it.

So - same people, chairs & sex offenders.

Just vaguely curious if they know....

My blender is now in my office and I'm looking at the walls and going "hurm..that art piece can go here and I could put this other one there...." and contemplating what plants I want to kill this time....

There's something *WRONG* with using the Bob The Builder dance mix on auto-reply to help clean out your office.

Tell me two stories - the worst experience you ever had with a sales person, and the best. What was the thing that made you remember them?

Hell, I'm in a position to re-create our sales approach from the ground up - I might as well build it the way I think it should be done.

There's something enormously goofy, empowering and just plain silly about moshing, by yourself, in your office, to Bob the Builder.

Thanks, [livejournal.com profile] trinshadow, I needed that.

Or I need new glasses.

I cannot get my eyes to focus with my glasses on.

Take them off, I can read my computer screen.

That's not the way it normally works.
