Back at work

The week so far has been monumentally crappy. I'm back at work after my attempt to be off work forever. I just really am hating going in every day. I am doing work that is just not very useful to the company and while I am actually taking some pleasure in doing work that I can actually do it is not what I think of as rewarding.

They have me writing documents for the technically impaired. How to sign on to TSO, how to browse a record, how to look up information if various files. It is simple enough to do but I've done such work so many times over the years that it is a bit of a bore.

I completed a reference document yesterday of 1440 words on five pages. I guestimate that it took 6 hours to do and 2 to proof. That comes out at somewhere between 3 and four words a minute. What a snail's pace nightmare. In the training department back in the day I used to consider that it took a day to produce an hour of document/lecture. This document would take about five minutes to lecture, possibly ten for dullards among us. that's less than a quarter of my old accomplishments in a topic with which I am so utterly familiar that I don't even confirm my assertions, I just type it all from memory.


I just really want all this to be over so I can get back to some semblance of a normal life. "New normal" would suit me just fine, whatever it takes.

    It is my sad duty to report that my Brother Bob passed away from a heart attack on 1/31/13. I know he had many followers on Live Journal. I thought…

  • I spoke to Lutron today

    I spoke to lutron today. That would be the person, not the corporation. He was on his way to D & D. I haven't done that in more…

  • Another day another dollar. I need a rate increase.

    I have been cat-waxing all day. I really need to write some more on my NaNoWriMo novel. It is a take off on Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake…
